Excuse me, Ruby Vee, but that is a mistaken perception.

Obviously, those "condoms" were intended for Area 54's singled-fingered aliens.

Don't be silly, Davey.  Everyone knows aliens have three fingers.

 Once we had a whole case of gloves, and each box was full of condoms.

When I started in dialysis in 1985 we wore street clothes and did not use gloves.  We held bleeding needle sites with just gauze and frequently had blood on our hands.  Even when using a face shield, I have been splashed up under it by a wayward fistula needle - Hep C patient to boot.  Never thought a thing about it.  Now gloves rip many times putting them on and sometimes have obvious holes or even fingers missing.  We've had some fun with that!!

When I was a nurses aide in 1976, we used finger cots for suppositories, and that was pretty much the only PPE. And we rewashed enema buckets and soaked them in an antiseptic solution.
