THE SHOWER SHIRT™-
A post-surgical, water resistant garment designed to protect Mastectomy drains and Hemodialysis Catheters (for ESRD patients) from water while showering. The use of the Shower Shirt is to reduce the risk of infection. Mastectomy drains and Hemodialysis Catheters (for ESRD patients) act as portals for bacteria to enter wound sites, increasing the risk of post-surgical infections. Physicians routinely instruct patients NOT TO shower without protection. The ability to bathe appropriately can reduce stress and anxiety for patients, while also reducing the risk of infection. The Shower Shirt can be used for showering after a mastectomy or showering with dialysis catheters. In addition to Mastectomy and Hemodialysis patients, The SHOWER SHIRT™ is used by patients with the following conditions:
Patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)
SAVI ™ Radiation Therapy patients
Abdominal Hernia patients with post-surgical drains
Patients needing Wound Vacs, Infusion Pumps and External
Patients with Central Lines
Lung surgery & cardio-thoracic patients
Feeding Tubes & Colostomy Bags
