New patient gown design unveiled by health minister


Not a moment too soon, I say!!!! Patient comfort and dignity is one of the principles of basic nursing............well of the old school that I am from........not that I am THAT old - just trained well. Seems to me the negative comments above are probably from the generation of nurses who don't like to get their hands dirty in case they need to wash them, or do a bit of hard work. Why shouldn't a designer be asked to design something, after all that is his job., Nowhere is there mention of a big fat fee...may be there was some altruism here and he did it for the challenge, and to improve patient care. Lets give them a chance - when are they going to be available? They have got to be better than what is in use now.
