ADON from Florida Gastro ASC writing in with a question....
JCAHO, CDC, AHCA, AORN, etc in mind....
Can laundered gowns be worn from endo room to endo room without removal?
We are set up where the physician and staff go from room #1 to room #2 without exiting
the back area. We currently use disposable gowns and the price difference is negligible. The disposable gowns however are very hot. The price difference being negligible unless the gowns can be worn from patient to patient throughout the day. Any firsthand experience with the regs on this? I have searched and searched for hours for a clear and concise reg but as with most of these they are vary vague to allow the surveyor free reign it seems.
Thank you and have a good day!
