The need of an islamic revolution in the hospital

This is the kind of gown that patients are expected to wear in the operating theater --> usually its plain white

This is the current gown that we are donning at operating theaters in Malaysia - " government hospital" -- prior to scrubbing in or worn by those who are not involved in the surgery i.e. surgeon/assistants

this is the ones that are worn by the surgeons/assistants

Published Date: 02 September 2006
Muslim women booking into hospital for operations can now respect their religion by wearing a burka-style gown.
The 'Inter-Faith Gown' is the brainchild of Karen Jacob, the linen services manager at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

It is the first such gown to be introduced in the country and patients at Preston and Chorley hospitals will now have the opportunity to wear it if they wish.

Ms Jacob said: "I noticed a gap in the market and thought that it would be great if there was a gown that helped to preserve a patient's modesty."

The gown provides extra comfort and cover for patients undergoing medical procedures, and whose culture or religion requires them to be more modestly clothed.

Trials of the gown have already been carried out at Royal Preston Hospital and the response has been overwhelming.

It will be available from November 1 and will be manufactured by Interweave Textiles.

There has already been considerable interest in it from other NHS Trusts.

Ms Jacob and Interweave Textiles were brought together by TrusTECH – the NHS organisation that manages innovation for the North West NHS.

Unfortunately this is not what's happening to our hospitals all over malaysia --> in regards to the government hospitals..

Instead.. we are exposing our doctors/staffs and patients - which is a sham , in terms that Muslims are majority.

In the european countries - the muslims are stilll a minority, yet they are trying to accomodate to our needs but in our own countries we are embarrassing ourselves as not to even do such simple requirement.
