Pneumatic Tube Systems: Handle With or Without Gloves

Respondents voted yes to handling with gloves on both the lab and non-lab ends. To illustrate why, one respondent cited a time when urine samples spilled within her institution’s tube system. She also pointed out, however, that labs might have to educate the nursing team about proper pneumatic tube handling (for instance, her institution’s nurses were sending candy through the tube system to the lab and had to be asked to stop).
