Henry Ford Health System unveils new patient gown (USA)

Patients at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit are the "lucky" first to wear new gowns designed for greater comfort, a bit of style, and a shred more decency. Worn like a robe, the new patient gown is securely closed in the front and back, and has a v-shaped neckline so it doesn't look like you're wearing a bedsheet. Developed by Henry Ford Innovation Institute in collaboration with Michigan's College for Creative Studies, the new gown was made to be warmer using thicker material, works using snaps instead of straps, and is made for easy access when working with IV lines
