Is this the grossest PPE side effect yet?
The latest in a plethora of PPE-related side-effect selfies, this image emerged last month, in what could possibly be the grossest injury yet.
Personal protective equipment is known to take its toll on the wearer, with the bruised faces of exhausted healthcare workers ever present in the media.
But this doctor’s hand, said to be the result of prolonged glove use, shows extreme maceration — we’re talking ‘fell-asleep-in-the-bath’ levels of prune-age.
This is the hand of a doctor after removing his medical precautionary suit and gloves after 10 hours of duty.— Awanish Sharan (@AwanishSharan)
