Clothing Protectors & Bibs Australia
Frailty and physical disabilities necessitate use of adult clothing. While some people feel them to be demeaning, they are only medical appliances meant for patient care. It is for the patient’s good. You may find it hard to convince a friend or family in the advanced age or even in teenage to wear this type of clothing while on treatment. It actually feels and looks like a kid. Patients may interpret this as helpless and dependent, which no adult wants. But with a little patience and persistence, patients accept to wear bibs. Bibs are important in maintaining cleanliness and saving clothes from meal spills and even exposure to drugs.
If a patient has a condition that leads to uncontrolled spill of saliva, this is necessary. It helps in avoiding wetting clothes and other parts of the bed. Adult clothing is also beneficial for caregivers. When handling patients, exposure to body fluids should be completely avoided because it exposes the second party to infections.
There are no specific designs to adult clothing and bibs. While there are numerous manufacturers that custom their products for sale, the design is the same. Either they are tied around the neck or fixed on the neck with buttons or a zip. Nevertheless, it is important to find a suitable color and design that appeal to a patient. Visual appeal works with ‘stubborn’ patients. It is part of healthcare. Find a soft and suitable fabric that does not interfere with skin of a patient. Also, there are different sizes of adult clothing to cater for different neck and bust sizes.
It is pretty easy to use and maintain adult clothing. They are all made of fabric that is easily washable by hand and dry by sun and wind. There are no restrictions to this, you can choose to use machine wash for efficiency and utmost cleanliness.
Nevertheless, you should practice extra caution when handling the clothing. While you are caring for a patient at home or in the hospital and you should not be paranoid, infecting yourself is no option. After convincing the patient of importance of wearing bibs, protect yourself.
