ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the prevention of latex allergy among patients in hospitals. He contends that while some hospital products have been labelled if they are latex free or not, there are still that have been overlooked such as the bags of intravenous fluid. He claims that the plan of the British National Patient Safety Agency of use a European latex symbol seems uninformative.
