We surveyed professional nurses, infection control leaders, and operating room nurse managers and found the following:
- 100% said used disposable isolation gowns in hospitals are potential sources for spreading infection
- 100% said patients and their families feel more comfortable with the quality of their care when the health care site appears clean.
- 98.3% said waste receptacles and containers are typically filled to overflowing with used isolation gown
- 98% would like to use a new disposable isolation gown, if it could safely and quickly fold into a small bundle, one that decreases trash volume, decreases the risk of touching contaminated disposed gowns and offers a cleaner patient environment.
