Importance of medical gowns
Health care providers use medical gowns in a variety of settings, including emergency departments, intensive care units and medical clinics.

Isolation gowns protect the clothing of health care providers. They also protect visitors and patients because they prevent the transfer of microorganisms and body fluids in patient isolation situations.
