New patient gown design unveiled by health minister


I would be happy if ANY hospital gowns were available! my mother-in-law recently admitted to a large Manchester hospital and not one gown could be found. And I know this is not an isolated event because as a children's nurse I frequently had to scour the hospital for anything that remotely looked like a gown! let alone one that fitted the age of the child I was trying to provide one for. Each Pct I believe has just had to reduce their outgoing by an enormous amount of money because Labour have made a mess of the budget! could swine flu vaccine have cost us so much?? I can only see the NHS going downhill at a much faster rate than ever, but at least we will know that as patients are left in corridors for the lack of nursing staff they will have their dignity by wearing these new hospital gowns.
