The hospital needs to be kept clean and tidy, especially the operating room, which is required to be sterile. Therefore, before entering the operating room, the first thing medical staff must do is to put on sterile clothes, but many people can’t distinguish the difference between medical scrub suit and medical surgical gown. What is the difference between medical surgical gown and medical scrub suit?
The surgical gown is a long-sleeved gown with a small high-necked collar, which is opened at the back. Generally, doctors can't wear it by themse es, they need the assistance of a nurse to wear it. The color is mainly light blue.
The part of the surgical gown that touches the doctor’s body is called the clean area, and the part that comes into contact with blood, body fluids and the patient’s body outside is called the contaminated area. The general operation requirement is to completely isolate the contaminated environment and the clean environment, while protecting the health of both the doctor and the patient. Therefore, the surgical gown is required to be wrapped tightly and must be completely isolated.
