Medical gowns are examples of personal protective equipment used in health care settings. They are used to protect the wearer from the spread of infection or illness if the wearer comes in contact with potentially infectious liquid and solid material. They may also be used to help prevent the gown wearer from transferring microorganisms that could harm vulnerable patients, such as those with weakened immune systems. Gowns are one part of an overall infection-control strategy.
At Paradigm Textiles we have tested and continue to test many of our products and identify them as such. We use a 3rd party Independent Laboratory that is a U.S. Government QLL Certified testing laboratory to certify our products to meet ANSI/AAMI Standards (American National Standards Institute/Association of the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation).
Labeling that shows a product has been tested to and meets appropriate performance standards is one way for users and procurers to determine when to use a particular gown.
According to the FDA "conformance with recognized consensus standards is voluntary for a medical device manufacturer. A manufacturer may choose to conform to applicable recognized standards or may choose to address relevant issues in another manner". Some manufacturers do not have an independent Lab certify their products to meet ANSI/AAMI Standards.
