We thank Mr Yeo Heng Ngi for highlighting the glove-change incident ("Change gloves after every patient when drawing blood"; yesterday).
The correct procedure for us is to use a fresh pair of gloves for every patient.
We apologise for the lapse and for the incorrect information given to Mr Yeo. We will tighten our procedures for compliance.
Chew Kwee Tiang (Mrs)
Khoo Teck Puat Hospital
