A. E. BOETTCHER PATIENT S GOWN Filed Oct. 24, 1942 INVENTOR.
A-ITU RN EYS WITNESSES:
Patented May 1, 1945 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE PATIENTS GOWN r 1 Anna Boettcher, Winona, Application October 24, 1942, Serial No. 463,233.
1Claim. (01. 2-114) This invention relates to improvements in a patients gown.
The object of the invention is to provide a gown of the character described so constructed that it can be readily put on and removed from them.-
tient while in bed; at the same time providing,
slits, arranged at certain positions, so that the patient can be properly examined and injections made, as desired.
Another object of the invention is to provide a garment so constructed and arranged that it can be readily used in connection with a specifically constructed hood for covering the head and neck of the wearer, and retained in position without fastening means. l
A further object of the invention is to provide a simple and effective gown having certain details of structure and combination of parts hereinafter more fully described.
Referring then to the drawing,
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the patient bed with my improved gown thereon;
I Figure 2 is a front perspective view of gown with the sleeves in a raised position;
Figure 3 is a perspective view of the improved hood,
l The herein illustrated preferred embodiment of this invention consists of a body I of the improved gown provided with the neck band 2, having an opening 3 extending therethrough and ter- .minating at 4 at the waist line. The gown has the usual sleeves 5 and 6 and cuffs "I, and 8. The upper face of each sleeve is provided with slits, or openings, 9 and ID, held closed by zipper fastening. These openings, as shown, are so positioned in respect to the arms of the wearer that the access may be had to either arm for injections or the like.
The body I of the gown is split at H, at one side, from the extreme lower end l2 upwardly through the lower face of the sleeve 6, for its entire length and through the cuff 8 to the point ,I3, and is closed by the ordinary zipper 14. By this arrangement, it will be seen that the gown can be readily put on while the patient is in bed. This isaccomplished by releasing the zipper in the back, putting the gown over the head of the wearer, slipping the right arm in the sleeve 5 while the head is passed through the opening 3, which has been previously opened. The front and back portions of the gown are drawn over the body of the patient, and over the left arm, and the zippers closed to completely cover the body and arms.
The hood I5 is composed of the head portion tents to control the temperature therein, Sometimes temperatures below degrees F. are required and, since many if not most of the patients so treated are extremely ill, exposure of their bodies to the low temperatures and drafts would be particularly injurious. Moreover, experience has shown that they often attempt to remove head and body coverings to their own injury. The present invention is designed not only to facilitate care of such patients but also to prevent them from removing the hood and gown. To this I end all fastenings are made as inaccessible to the patient as possible consistent with the necessary care and treatment'by the doctor, nurse or other attendant. By locating the main openings 3 and l I where they are most inaccessible to thepatient and also by providing for the closure of these openings by slide fasteners, the slide portion of which may be located at an end of the opening where it is most inaccessible to the patient, I meet the special requirements of a gown for this use." The hood opening I9 is also rendered inaccessible by extending it from apoint above the forehead down the back of the head and cervical portions to the lower edge ofthe apron portion I8 at the middle of the back. Slide fasteners so located have the further advantage over buttons and other spaced fastenings of being continuous and uninterrupted, thus afiording maximum protection to the patient against the cold drafts of air.
My location of the sleeve openings 9 and I0 is particularly important as is the fact that these openings are short and therefore cannot be used to expose a large area of the patients body even though the patient should find them and move the slide fasteners to open position. These openings are sometimes used for long periods of time as in the giving of intravenous fluids or transfusions, or briefly for the taking of blood pressure recordings or administering parenteral medications. It is sometimes necessary to use them during the period when other examination or treatment rethe upwardly from approximately the waistline to I said neck opening and a slide fastener for closing said opening, said front and back being perma 15 H nently secured together at the shoulders; sleeves permanently connected at their inner ends to said front and back, the body of said gown having an opening extending the full length thereof along one side only of said gown and the sleeve on said one side of said gown having an opening on the underside thereof extending the full length of said sleeve; 3, single slide fastener arranged to close said gown opening and said sleeve opening, each of "said :sleeves'having laslit 'in the upper side thereof terminating short of theshoulder of the gown and also terminating short of the outer end of the sleeve; and a slide fastener arranged to close 'the slit in each of said sleeves.
