Sterile means free of germs. You must wear sterile gloves when instructed. This will help prevent your child from getting an infection.
Check that the package is unopened and has no holes or tears. Do not use sterile gloves past the expiration date.
Note: If the glove doesn’t go on straight, you can wait to adjust it. You can do that later. Keep your hands above your waist and do not touch anything. This way, they stay sterile and free of germs.
