Surgical gowns are an important factor in surgical risk management and infection prevention, as they maintain the integrity of the sterile field during surgical procedures and are essential to provide a protective system for the patient and the surgical team.
The choice of surgical gown is dependent upon the specific type, site and potential fluid exposure of the surgical intervention, which must ensure protection for the patients and clinical staff from the dangers of blood borne pathogens, fluid contaminants and preventing the transmission of infectious agents thereby reducing the risk of healthcare associated infections [HCAIs].
Because the patients and surgeons life is our priority, Dispomed is keen to create gowns that comply with EN 13795 standards to ensure the Healthcare Protection and Safety from surgical site or nosocomial infections.
* European Directive EN 13795-3:2006: The European harmonized standard specifying requirements for single-use and reusable gowns, drapes and clean air suits used as medical devices for patients, clinical staff and equipment and intended to prevent the transmission of infective agents between patients and clinical staff during invasive surgical procedures.
