What does everyone use for gowns in the treatment room. Our staff uses level 3 impervious gowns but was wondering what type and level everyone else uses and if one is more breathable than others?
these are my opinions and not my employer's
we use what the company provides, they are white
semi impervious to liquid for iso we use a blue
plastic apron totally impervious to liquids
disclaimer my views and no one else
thanks again pops...we had a white level 3 but the staff were baking in them so we moved to a level 2 yellow...iso we use probablt the same blue ones you described
A little late to the party here, but we were using yellow, washable gowns for the whole tx area. We are now switching to an impervious "disposable" apron. I don't have any details yet as we are in the trial phase...but everyone's hopes are high.
They were going through the yellow gown due to the laundering process. Every batch had a percentage which was garbage (ripped, ties broken, etc). This will also save in transporting clean/dirty gowns to our outer clinics weekly. They can just order them with their normal stock and call it a day.
It's not every day that something comes along in this field that appears to make life that much easier (and safer honestly) for everyone...
