The invention is a newly designed hospital gown with holes for Ostomy Procedures.
Inventor Teddy Ferlin Blood of Jacksonville, TX has designed a hospital gown with holes designated for Ostomy Procedures.
In the past patients who had Ostomy bags were forced to undress completely when the bag needed to be adjusted or changed. This left little privacy to the already suffering patient. Additionally, when the gown was ready to be washed the Ostomy tubing had to be disconnected and gown removed. This meant that multiple nurses had to get involved simply to remove the gown. In effort to give Ostomy patients some dignity and additional comfort Inventor Blood has created a means by which Ostomy bags and tubing can remain in place when the gown is removed, and vice versa the bag needs to be changed.
This clever new invention has an opening on the gown that allows for easy access to the Ostomy bag, site and tubing. Additionally, the tubing can remain in place when the gown needs to be removed to be washed. The gown would be available in multiple sizes to fit all patients comfortably, and is washable and reusable. The use of the Ostomy Gown allows nurses to easily access Ostomy sites without removing the patient’s gown in manner that is quick, easy and effective.
