Antimicrobial Uniforms

  1. I have heard at work that there is a company that makes uniforms and hospital gowns etc. that are antimicrobial, has anyone else heard of this? If so, what is the name of the company? Thanks ahead of time :-)

    Hi 505rn. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I wonder what is the long term effect of antimicrobial clothing on the wearers?

    It may seem far fetched, but I wonder if there will be similar affects to long term use of antimicrobial clothing as there is to taking antimicrobials in the system? As with the latex gloves problem, I wonder whether wearing antimicrobials will cause more problems instead of solving them? Like you, I would like to see more information.
