What are hospital gowns called?
They have many names, depending on the purpose and style of the gown. Generally known as “hospital gowns” collectively, they are also referred to by many as patient gowns or medical gowns. Not to be confused with surgical gowns, which is the protective clothing worn by surgeons and operating theatre staff.
Interweave provides UK hospitals with many different types of gowns including the operation gown which is a traditional white back-tying polycotton gown.
Interweave also provides an innovative three-arm toga, which takes away all the effort of putting on a gown properly, as there are no ties, poppers or straps – the patient simply puts it on over both arms like a backwards coat and then wraps the third arm around the body and slides it onto the left arm.
