Patient Scrubs Replacing Johnny Hospital Gowns


  The hospital gown that many of us know personally is called the Johnny gown. It feels like it’s made from very low thread count bed sheets and is open in the back. Even if you can contort your body to tie behind your back, it still gaps to show off your backside.  More than one person has taken a shot at designing a new one, but most hospitals return to the Johnny gown year after year. Our goal at […]

Stop Hospital “Super Bugs” Before They Stop You


A new study released last week by the New England Journal of Medicine is generating a lot of coverage. The findings are scary. They say about 1 in every 25 hospital patients got an infection while in the hospital.  There were 721,800 infections at hospitals in 2011, and 75,000 people died, according to U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Scary? You bet! CNN reports that pneumonia and surgical-site infections were the most common. These were followed by gastrointestinal infections, […]

Patient Scrubs Will be Your Second Best Friend


Medical apparel is big business, and no one knows that better than I. Let’s think back to the 80’s and before. Almost everyone wore hospital gowns.  Nurses wore formal white uniforms, doctors wore business attire and other medical professionals wore business clothes. Scrubs were just for surgery. Everything has changed today, and scrubs have become common for most everyone in the medical profession. Isn’t it time that patients caught up with everyone else? I invented Patient Scrubs® as a convenience […]

Today’s Merry-Go-Round of Life isn’t the Vision of Good Health


  The Surgeon General is working hard on promoting a vision for being healthy and fit. Why?  There are so many reasons. Technology has made it easy on us, so we get less exercise than ever before.   Meals come supersized, so we eat more than ever before.  Plus, today’s merry-go-round of life keeps us eating out and eating on the run.  It’s not healthy for us emotionally or physically.  I hear a lot of stories from people who buy my […]

Little Things Make a Big Difference for Human Dignity


We don’t think much about our dignity until it’s compromised.  What is dignity? Most of us associate it with self-respect. But, when pressed to describe dignity, it’s difficult. To me, dignity goes beyond maintaining self-respect. It’s about  treating others well (like you would want to be treated).  Put yourself in someone’s shoes and think about whether you are treating them with dignity.  Little things make a big difference for human dignity. Dignity is foremost in my mind when someone is […]

Gift Ideas for a Sick Friend, Relative or Neighbor


A thoughtful gift can be just the thing to raise someone’s spirits. Almost everyone knows someone who is facing surgery, in rehab or confined to their home. The big question is what to buy for someone who is sick, especially when they don’t get out much.  Maybe they are confined to their home, the hospital or a rehabilitation center for a while.  Most people look forward to a personal visit, and they enjoy gifts that brighten their day or ease […]

Patient Scrubs®—Not Your Mother’s Hospital Gown


We always love a few of the things from yesteryear. Some of us become attached to a special quilt that we had when we were growing up. Others love antique furniture that has been passed down through the generations. Or, take a look at how several fashion trends keep reappearing through the years – miniskirts, bell-bottom pants, skinny pants, etc. But, other things don’t pass the “keep it” test – like hospital gowns. Check out Patient Scrubs®. This two-piece set […]

Stand Up and Be Counted by Wearing Patient Scrubs®


Every time I see a news release or an article about a new hospital gown, I think maybe, just maybe people are catching on and this is one medical problem that will be solved. But, the only way that I have clothing that doesn’t show my backside is because I take matters into my own hands. I wear Patient Scrubs! But, I still feel badly for the people who don’t know that there’s an alternative. Many hospitals won’t switch from the […]
