New patient gown design unveiled by health minister


The concept of refining a hospital gown is utterly absurd. There is absolutely nothing dignified about wearing a gown for anyone regardless of gender, age, or even religious preference. I for one would never want any of my co-workers to visit me at a hospital while I’m wearing a gown. There is a new hospital clothing line that will definitely replace hospital gowns called DIGNITYWEAR. It is a two piece suit with either warm up or pajama design with complete accessibility for all nursing needs, and encourage patient mobility. It is primarily used during visiting hours so hospitals won't need to eliminate gowns entirely, especially in ER or trauma centers. This makes perfect sense. Not only private parts are covered, but it motivates patients to want to get well and encourage a return to active lifestyle. The website is: I have no idea why every hospitals don't carry this product now, instead of waiting for Ben de Lisi's design next year.
