Tonawanda, NY, United States, 2009/08/19 - The hated hospital gown that opens at the back is no more. The new Privacy Preferred Hospital Gown keeps patients covered yet allows instant access to the body for examination and treatment - AMDRitmed.com.
For years, doctors, nurses and patients have wondered why someone hasn't come up with a modest yet practical patient hospital gown that covers the backside while allowing medical personnel easy access to the patient’s body.
And now there is. AMD-Ritmed, Inc., a leading distributor of hospital clothing, supplies and disposables, has begun sales of the Privacy Preferred Hospital Gown, an FDA-approved, patented garment designed by a recovery room nurse and anesthesiologist.
Traditional hospital gowns that tie at the neck and are open at the back have been around since the 1920s, and been the bane of patients and health practitioners ever since.
But with its V-neck, ties that are connected at the sides and tie together in the front and a row of snaps at both shoulder seams, the Privacy Preferred Hospital Gown allows access to the entire length of the body for examination, procedures, dressing changes and wound care, auscultation and lead placement, while keeping the patient fully covered.
The Privacy Preferred Hospital Gown is ideal for all acute and clinical settings. One side of the gown can be unsnapped for IV bag changes and nursing mothers, while the V-neck allows for EKG lead placement.
In a code situation where seconds matter, one strong pull on the front of the gown unsnaps the entire shoulder seam, allowing quick access to the chest for lead and paddle placement.
Cost-effective, washable and reusable, the Privacy Preferred Hospital Gown is made of 55% cotton and 45% polyester and comes in four sizes: Children's/Small (Torso: 26 ½ inches x 30 inches), Medium (Torso: 30 inches x 37 inches), Large (Torso: 35 inches x 42 ½ inches), and X-Large (Torso: 44 inches x 49 inches).
The Privacy Preferred Hospital Gown is available online (amdritmed.com) in cases of 50 pieces through all major distributors to acute and long term care facilities and clinics nationwide.
