To your patients, a patient gown is not just a patient gown; it's a tangible expression of the care they can expect from you. If your gowns are stained, dirty or torn, your patients will think that your patient care is as substandard as your medical linen service. On the other hand, if you provide a patient gown that surprises them with its exceptional quality and comfort, your patients are likely to think highly of your practice as a whole.
When we were first introducing our Comfort Care® line of products, we surveyed over 1,000 patients to see if the type of gown they were given influenced their perceptions of the facilty. Overwhelmingly, the answer was yes: changing the type of gown increased patients' perceptions of the facility by 90%! The doctors were the same, the staff was the same, the level of the care was the same--the only variable was the gowns.
