Level 1 Isolation Gown

$19.99

A level 1 isolation gown is the lowest level of protection, considered “minimal risk”. A level 1 isolation gown is designed to be used for basic care, such as by those working in hospice, care homes, or low-risk wards. It is also the level given to visitors, for example, after someone has given birth. It provides a “slight” barrier to small amounts of fluid penetration.
