How different patient gowns are used in hospitals

Patient gowns are also known as hospital gowns; especially during this COVID-19 pandemic, gowns play a vital role. It's a collarless gown tied in the back, worn by patients examined or treated in a doctor's office, clinic, or hospital. Patients generally dislike hospital gowns, as sparse, ugly, and ill-fitting garments often leave one's backside ignominiously exposed.

Disposable medical gowns are protective gear, often known as personal protective equipment, used in the medical field to protect patients from infections. Various hospitals offer reusable patient gowns to reduce waste and purchasing costs. These gowns are also known as Johnnys.

The gown was designed to maximize medical staff access to the patient's body.

Patients are asked to wear pajamas, robes, and slippers. On the other hand, in the other units, patients are asked to wear their street clothes brought from home.

There are various advantages to hospital gowns. They allow doctors to gain easy access to the patient to conduct a physical examination. A recent study found that patients are often asked to wear hospital gowns even when there is no medical reason to do so for them.

A patient gown has its own determining factor for its quality. A piece of thicker fabric is sturdy and does not get worn out after a few washes, unlike lighter fabrics. 

Types of patient gowns 

There are several different patient gowns, like

  • Hospital Pajamas Poplin Robe
  • Seersucker Robe
  • Nursing Gown
  • Bariatric Gowns
  • Hi-Risk Elopement and Psych Gowns 

Hospital Pajamas

Hospital pajamas are "a long piece of clothing worn in a hospital by someone doing or having an operation which is easy to wear.

Poplin robe  

Poplin robe, also known as tabbinet, is a plain-weave cotton fabric with excellent horizontal "ribs," or yarns, resulting in a strong, crisp fabric with a silky, lustrous surface. The patients in the hospital used to wear which is easy and comfortable.

Seersucker Robe

The seersucker robe is a fabric that has been around for centuries. It's light cotton, linen, or fabric with a crinkled surface and is often striped.

Nursing Gown

Nursing gowns are robes or smocks worn in operating rooms and other parts of hospitals to guard against contamination.

Bariatric Gowns

Bariatric gowns mean "relating to or specializing in the treatment of obesity." When you hear the term "bariatric" being used in a medical setting, it refers to the treatment, prevention, and causes of obesity.
