- 0Oct 8, '03 by ChayaI work in a Rehab setting where patients are encouraged to bring and wear their own work-out or other comfortable clothing to PT and OT. Most patients are able to have these washed by family members but a few do not have anyone to do this for them, and we have no set alternative. Anyone else run into this sort of thing? What is done at other institutions? Feedback/ suggestions appreciated!
