The Benefits of Silicone Rings for Healthcare Workers

There is no doubt that health workers have a difficult job. Caring for sick people is not an easy task. A lot of manual labor is involved, as well as maintaining a clean and safe workplace. It is for these reasons that healthcare employees do not find it practical to wear a traditional metal wedding band or diamond ring.

Fortunately, there are safe alternatives to metal rings. Medical professionals can wear wedding bands and remain safe on the job thanks to silicone rings. In this blog, we will cover some of the top reasons why silicone rings are a good choice for nurses, doctors, and physical therapists.

1.Easy To Clean

The intricate designs on traditional metal rings can make them difficult to clean. It can be particularly difficult to keep debris out of the tiny nooks between precious stones. Conversely, silicone is incredibly easy to clean and sanitize, which is perfect for accidental contact with chemicals or bodily fluids. It does not require any special tools or solutions. All you need is soap and water. Furthermore, it is made of medical-grade silicone, which will not harbor bacteria or other germs when used at work.

2. Medical Grade Silicone

It has been carefully tested to ensure that silicone rings are biocompatible. This type of material is safe to use by medical professionals of all kinds. In addition to being safe for your own skin, they're also safe for your patients' skin. Medical-grade silicone rings can provide considerable peace of mind to both you and your patients.

3. Provides Flexibility

Working in the medical field requires the ability to perform intricate, detailed actions with your fingers. In many cases, metal rings interfere with your fingers' ability to move freely. Since silicone rings are so flexible, they do not restrict your movements. As a matter of fact, you might forget you're wearing a ring because the silicone moves naturally.

4. Safety

As a healthcare professional, you need a ring that does not cause any discomfort to your fingers. It is possible for a metal wedding band to be forcefully ripped from your finger if it gets caught on something, such as a patient's bed or clothing. This could cause bruising in addition to severe damage to your muscles, bones, and tendons.

Additionally, your ring may present a risk to your patients, particularly if it contains prongs that might snag on your patients' skin, or one with a diamond setting on top of the metal band. Rings of this type can also make it difficult to wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), such as gloves.

5. Won’t Break Through Gloves

Working in the medical field most likely requires you to wear gloves. The stiff metal components and sharp jewels of traditional metal rings can easily break through delicate gloves. In addition to being an inconvenience, this is also a safety risk for you and your patients. Silicone rings are extremely soft and flexible, designed to bend and flex with your hands as you move. If it gets caught on something, it will stretch or even break if necessary to protect your hands and your patients. It is this benefit that makes silicone rings attractive to every professional who works with their hands. It sits flush against your finger, so you will not need to worry about tearing your gloves or snagging them.

6. Affordable

In the event that silicone rings break off in medical equipment at work, they are very inexpensive and easy to replace. Though they're made to last a lifetime under normal conditions, if your ring does not last, replacing it won't cost you a fortune.

7. Comfort

A demanding profession like medicine requires super comfortable rings, which is why silicone rings are a great choice. As the silicone is stretchy, it conforms quickly to your finger, and you won't notice you're wearing it at all after a few minutes of wearing it.

For medical professionals, silicone rings offer these benefits and more. It is now possible for you to wear your wedding band without having to worry about compromising your safety or your patients' safety.
