New tool to fight MRSA


8 February, 2007  

The fight against the MRSA bug will take a step forward this week
when a new-style hospital gown goes on trial at a London hospital.
The patient gown combines a new and innovative design with an antimicrobial finish that controls the growth of bacteria.

The gown’s unique design aims to reduce the spread of infection by minimising patient handling.  It facilitates access to the patient’s body for examination and makes it easier to change than
regular gowns. Less patient handling means less contact with nurse’s uniforms which reduces the chance of cross-contamination.
