Finally an article that hits reality. For the past three years, I've been targeting the Nurses to take a look at an innovative product I've developed that will elevate Patient Satisfaction, assist the nurses at the bedside, address the safety issues and help reduce cost for the hospitals. The product is called the ECT Gown. A re-usable IV Patient Gown that is US Patented. When given an opportunity to present to the hospital's Nurse Leadership Team through the developers sphere of influence, they are quick in recognizing the clinical value and benefits. The problem I have is getting that opportunity and having to deal with non-clinicians on clinical issues. Once again...thank you for this article and I hope many read it. Eric
