Wow! After the 5/11 article featured in the wall street journal, it appears to have bought the issue of patient gowns to the forefront. My wife and I have been showcasing our patented design in our local area. Our ECT Patient Gown offers tremendous clinical value while addressing the Patients Safety and Modesty issues. The ECT Gown was developed from 20+ years of bedside care. We have manufactured a gown that will sustain numerous washes from the high heat industrial linen companies and have priced it competitive with the standard IV gowns used today. June 18,2009 is our official launch date to introduce the ECT Gown to the Linen industry. The gown will be featured at the "Clean Show 2009" at the Convention Center in New Orleans. Come visit us at booth #5036 to see this innovated design. We will also showcase the ECT Gown in Tampa at the AHRMM show this July.

16th U.S. Surgeon General Commends American Dawn's ECT Patient Gown As an innovation that may help to lower healthcare costs by reducing Hospital Acquired Infections. In his Keynote Address to the Fourth Annual Supplier Diversity Forum in Mechanicsville, Virginia on Wednesday Dr. David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D. talked about the need for creative products to meet the challenges of modern medicine. Dr. Satcher, former Surgeon General of the United States, singled out the New ECT Patient Gown manufactured exclusively by American Dawn, Inc. In speaking with the Critical Care Nurse who invented the patented, new gown, he learned that the advanced I.V. Gown is designed to help prevent Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs).

The ECT Gown, generously sized to fit most patients, reduces the need to stock multiple sizes, lowering inventory requirements. The competitively priced ECT patient gown has unique features that no other gown on the market provides. It promotes early post-surgical ambulation, a practice critical to avoiding expensive, life threatening complications and infections. The overlapping back design of the ECT Gown eliminates the need for the patient to wear two gowns for privacy and modesty issues, and the gown also allow nurses better visibility of medical devices from central lines to drains and feeding tubes, which improves caregiver efficiency and adds to the bottom line.

Addressing the Forums 176 healthcare product manufacturers, distributors, top officials from major hospital systems and Group Purchasing Organizations, Dr. Satcher, former Director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Assistant Secretary for Health, spoke of the need for excellence and creative thinking in reducing the overall cost of healthcare in the United States. He cited the ECT Gown from American Dawn as innovative, and as an example of added value that diverse suppliers can bring to hospitals and other healthcare providers to fortify the healthcare system in the United States.

The ECT Gown has received 100% positive endorsements in a number of hospital trials. Chief Nursing Officers, Clinical Value Analysis Committees, and a number of healthcare innovation forums have also recommended the gown. Different nursing specialties including ICU, Infection Control, Wound Care, Surgical, and others have confirmed the system-wide application of the ECT Gown.
