Thumb loop gowns offer effective fluid protection. The innovative thumb loops prevent exposure to fluid leakage between the sleeve and glove. They are also designed to keep the sleeves from riding up with movement or sliding out of position. A thumb loop gown is an effective method of protection against cross contamination for those working within a medical profession.
Our thumb loop gowns are manufactured using polyethylene material, making them latex free. The use of polyethylene creates a product that is soft, durable and breathable. A one piece construction design ensures that the gown is impervious to fluids.
Key features of thumb loop gowns include:
- Thumb loops to prevent fluid exposure
- Over the shoulder protection
- Allow for unrestricted movement
- Polyethylene composition
- Latex free
- Soft and durable
Thumb loop gowns are an instrumental piece of personal protection equipment within the healthcare industry. According to the CDC’s Guideline for Isolation Precautions, gowns should be worn by healthcare workers to protect exposed body areas when exposure to blood, bodily fluids, excretions and secretions may be anticipated. Such gowns have also been associated with a reduced infection rate.
