Why do hospital gowns open in the back?
Hospital gowns with an open back are designed to allow medical staff easy access to whichever part of the patient is required.
We supply the following styles of hospital gown:
The Lapover Gown – Used by hospitals across the UK, patients say this gown is comfortable and easy to put on. The gown is fastened with colour-coded ties at the back.
The Dignity Gown – this gown has a full-width wrapover layer which offers the patient more dignity than other gowns. It is reversible, and can fasten at the front or the back depending on what is appropriate for the procedure.
The Operation Gown – this is a unisex gown which fastens at the back. It can be easily removed during a surgical procedure.
The Popper Gown – this gown features popper fastenings down the back and also across the shoulders. This allows for removal of the gown even when a patient has IV lines into the arms.
The Pullover Gown – with no ties or poppers, this gown simply pulls over the patient’s head.
The Three Arm Toga Gown – this gown offers a full wrapover for more patient dignity than the traditional lapover gown. There are no fastenings – the third arm simply wraps around the body and goes over the first arm.
The Mammography Gown – this gown is specially designed to pull over the head to cover the upper body.
