In the ten years plus that the Charité Hospital has been using Ansell medical gloves, it has been found time and again that the decision for total quality, which also includes packaging, information and scientific support, delivers the greatest savings.



Customer company profile

The story of the current Charité Hospital began in 1710 with the establishment of a quarantine house during the plague epidemic. In the 19th century the terms Charité and Faculty of Medicine became synonymous. The Charité Hospital, which is established at four sites in Berlin, with its 3,300 beds, around 14,000 staff, 8,000 students, over 60 operating theatres and an annual turnover of over one billion euros, is now the largest university hospital in Europe. By pursuing its well-known tradition of research, which was created by famous scholars such as Virchow and Koch, the Charité Hospital is on a par with Harvard (USA) and Oxford (GB).


Proven to be the most economical solution in the long term.


The Charité Hospital, one of the oldest and now the largest university hospital in Europe, in which all medical specialisms are represented, uses only Ansell gloves for medical and paramedical applications. The main reasons for this decision are consistently high quality, maximum allergy protection, high level of comfort and extremely good price-performance ratio. Taking into consideration all aspects of hand protection and patient care, Ansell products are always outstanding thanks to their superb cost-effectiveness.


Benefits for the customer

  • Consistently high quality

  • Dramatic reduction in hand allergies

  • Standardization and cost savings.



Even a university hospital that treats 125,000 in-patients and 900,000 outpatients annually must submit to budgetary legalities. The government is issuing increasingly stringent standards for the hospitalization and treatment of patients and regularly compares the efficient use of its subsidies with other hospitals.


The challenge: guaranteeing optimum medical performance within a complex budgetary framework

Great experience, a broad and highly specialized range of disciplines, and new scientific findings guarantee the highest quality of medical treatment at the Charité Hospital. This excellence is also what makes the Charité stand out in the area of research and teaching.

Providing a top-quality medical service on a limited budget is no easy task. This is why the management of the Charité prioritizes the effective use of the resources it needs. The same applies to the important aspect of the use of gloves in the medical and paramedical field.


The solution: standardization with Ansell gloves

The Charité Hospital is convinced that savings can only be achieved by adopting an overall approach to quality that incorporates all aspects. For example, medical gloves that are highly resistant to tearing, puncturing and chemicals, as well as being impermeable (providing protection against HIV), but which trigger skin problems, not only cause suffering but also increase costs.

The Charité found an answer to its requirement for total quality at Ansell. As well as providing consistent, stable quality (impermeability, sensitivity, robustness, fit, comfort), examination and surgical gloves from Ansell provide optimum protection against allergies to latex and other substances. Scientific support in the form of information, laboratory tests and research projects are also part of the service offered by Ansell.

The hospital conducts continuous controls, questions doctors and healthcare staff about their experiences with the gloves, and conducts market comparisons. Of the tens of thousands of Ansell gloves used at the Charité in just over a year, the quality statistics and causal research revealed that none of these gloves caused any problems.

The Charité therefore defined the use of Ansell products as the standard for all its departments and branches. The many thousands of doctors and healthcare staff trust only Ansell gloves for their medical and paramedical tasks.


The benefits: total quality equals cost-effectiveness

The Charité University Hospital and Ansell share the same views about quality that delivers savings in the long term:

  • Patients are protected against infection from doctors and healthcare staff.
  • Medical staff receive optimum protection against infections diseases.
  • High level of comfort and sensitivity.
  • Maximum avoidance of allergies among medical staff.
  • Care provided in all secondary quality aspects (packaging, information) and scientific support by Ansell.
  • Savings thanks to homogeneous quality control without weak points.
