TSA should use new gloves for EVERY PASSENGER!!!

Posted 11-23-2010 at 22:01 by Fiery Red XIII

I saw a story today, but being in healthcare, I have wondered it long before this. Agent don't change gloves from person-to-person/bag-to-bag. This is an infection risk, especially with all the "Contact Precautions" type patients seen in hospitals, nursing homes, etc. MRSA and VRE, as well as C-Diff come to mind. VERY easily spread and lives on surfaces for long times. I wonder how much trouble I'd get in to ask a screener to change gloves in front of me or sanitize them. Why are they not following CDC recommendations?!?!?!?!?

    They are too busy groping people to worry about cleanliness.

    Just the areas they are touching. I think I would at least ask them to change gloves. Especially since their biggest complaint is about having to check people with poor hygene.
