Making non-latex gloves standard in hospitals

  1. I'm researching information regarding making non-latex gloves (like nitrile, etc.) standard supplies vs. non-powdered latex gloves in hospitals. I have to present to administrators. I need information from those who have done the same. I have medical research articles stating why latex allergies are dangerous, etc. So I don't need that.

    How can this be cost effective? How can I prove this is worthwhile to the nurses who may become latex sensitive from exposure, as well as the patients becoming allergic?

    Any information is greatly appreciated. Thank You.
