For a patient, having examinations can be one of the more unpleasant parts of going to the doctor. Apart from potentially uncomfortable procedures, many patients are embarrassed when having investigations, particularly when they are invasive. Whilst there are curtains and screens, for the patient the thought of being exposed is off-putting and scary. Even when hospitals and clinics consider dignity for patients and provide sheets, gowns and underwear they don’t get it right. Anyone who has ever worn a hospital gown that doesn’t tie at the back or is too small and leaves gaps will know the embarrassment of wearing them. Many of these gowns come in one size only and do not meet the needs of larger patients which leaves them exposed. And even when the clinic provides disposable underwear it is so small it barely covers anything and can make the situation worse.
But now there’s a practical solution for patients coming to clinic and who are in hospital. A new disposable panty has been launched which is comfortable and comes in different sizes. It is in black too which maximises discretion from stains and other mishaps. For the patient there is no worry about being able to cover their intimate parts or looking ridiculous in an ill-fitting pair of pants. There are sizes accommodating waist sizes up to 53 inches so making an obese patient feel uncomfortable and embarrassed is no longer an issue. The message this gives the patient is that you as a clinician have thought of them as an individual and addressed a very simple need.
The disposable panty can be used in clinics, hospitals, beauty salons and many other situations. It is ideal in urology clinics and for operating rooms. These panties are unisex so can be used by men and women alike. For people having orthopaedic surgery these work well and protect the patient from unnecessary exposure on ward rounds and in the operating room. Another advantage of the disposable panty is when there is likely to be some wound leakage or bodily fluid discharge. These panties save the patient getting their best underwear messed up and cover them well, even when they have catheters and other tubes and drains. They are perfect after giving birth too. As they are disposable there is no laundry to worry about and they can simply be thrown in the bin.
It is often the small touches that mean the most to the patients when they are ill or having tests. So using these disposable panties that actually fit is something that can put the patient at ease and avoid the embarrassing stereotypical hospital underwear scenario. After all, which one would you prefer if you were the patient in that position?
