    Dear Brains Trust

    We have an eye surgeon who insists his patients do not need to wear a theatre gown going through his theatres. Whilst there is a plethora on perioperative attire for staff there is very little to hand as a documented rationale for patient attire other than ‘appropriate attire’ under these circumstances.
    So other than an attempt to reduce patients own bacterial burdens on their clothing into theatres does anyone have to hand any supporting literature otherwise. Or advice on current practice.

    Thanks in advance for any forthcoming advice
