Disposable Barrier Gowns

Medical isolation gowns prevent cross-contamination between healthcare staff and patients and reduce the danger of pathogen exposure. General-purpose gowns are not rated and are worn when there is a low danger of pathogen exposure. Gowns with an AAMI rating have been evaluated to fulfill requirements that indicate the quantity of fluid penetration a garment can withstand. Lower numbers indicate that less protection is provided than larger numbers.
