Reusable Medical Gowns Safer Than Disposables: AJIC Study
The American Journal of Infection Control (AJIC) has concluded in a study that reusable medical gowns offer greater protection than disposables. Reusable and single-use garments were tested extensively for durability and protection at various levels of contamination intensity.
Highlights of The AJIC Study
The AJIC’s study into the benefits of reusable medical gowns discovered many enlightening facts, but the most striking were as follows:
Multiple-use gowns last in ways that disposables don’t. They provide greater water resistance, strength, and piling resistance than disposables. As a result, your money is put to the greatest possible use.
Benefits of Commercial Laundry Maintenance
Using laundry facilities has no negative impact on the protection or performance of reusable gowns. In most cases, it is just the opposite. Laundry facilities often track their inventory to keep a close eye out for breaches. Laundry services often take care of both repairs and replacements at no additional charge.
Beyond just enhanced protection and durability, reusable gowns are far more eco-friendly than disposables. The less gowns thrown away, shipped, or manufactured, the less of an impact there is on the environment.
The CDC Weighs In
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends reusable medical gowns over disposables as they are less impacted by shortages. A major factor behind this reasoning was the massive surge in demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) when Covid-19 hit. In future surge capacity situations, reusable medical gowns will be able to stand up to supply chain disruptions.
