New patient gown design unveiled by health minister

Comment

Hi! I'm working in America at the moment, and we have the "snap" gowns (snaps down both arms). I work in an ICU and our patients have LOTS of lines! These gowns are a blessing. No longer the need to pass the bags through the sleeves, or worse, disconnect the line from the patient .... I understand what Anonymous 23 March 4:16 means about cutting costs and preventing infections.... but this is a step toward reducing blood borne infections.... and help save nurses' time!!! I love them.
