Medical Gowns

General Uses

A medical gown is typically used in a hospital or clinic environment where you might be exposed to microorganisms and particulate matter in a sterile environment. The medical gown is designed to protect personnel and patients from the transfer of these microorganisms and particulate material in a sterile environment.

Best Practices

When doffing a medical gown leaving your gloves on and pulling the gown off according to following doffing instructions will allow you to safely contain any contaminants.

Donning Instructions

  1. Start by pulling the individual gown from the bag.
  2. Inspect the gown prior to donning for any rips, or holes. If the gown is in good condition, continue to the next step of donning the gown. If there is a hole or tear, discard the gown and restart the donning process.
  3. Take hold of the gown from the folded edge and allow the remainder of the gown to unfold. With both hands holding either side of the neck opening swiftly, snap the gown down to release the rest of the gown. Gown is now ready to be donned.
  4. Place arms into the sleeves and hands into the thumb-loop cuffs if they apply to your gown.
  5. Pull the gown overhead.
  6. Pull the side ties to the back of the gown and tie at the rear of the waist.
