Florida Nurse Receives Patent for a Unique Line of Medi-Pajama Pants
"I was inspired to create this line of apparel after my mother, who is now deceased, was diagnosed with breast cancer, which led to frequent hospitalizations,"
Like Morrison's mother, many patients receiving long-term care in a hospital or other treatment facility are not only too weak to do anything about their nakedness, but often experience too much pain to care or lack the cognition to recognize their body privacy is compromised.
Studies show that having their body privacy repeatedly compromised adds psychological stress to patients already experiencing a substantial amount of physiological stress and mentally challenging situations. Thanks to regulations like HIPAA, hospitals do an excellent job protecting patients' informational privacy, but they seem helpless in finding an ideal garment that provides caregivers accessibility to the body, can easily be removed in a medical emergency, while also providing adequate coverage for the patients.
Mijamaz gives patients and caregivers the best of both worlds. The patented garment looks like a regular pair of pajama pants and could be worn while lounging in one's home. It can be removed in approximately 60 seconds without compromising patient safety or the integrity of the garment, and accommodates the wide array of invasive medical and orthopedic appliances many patients wear while receiving short and long-term care.
In addition to the pants, Mijamaz will release a complimentary pajama shirt later this year, with patent currently pending.
The private line of medi-pajama will be available exclusively online later this year to start but will soon be available in hospital gift shops, pharmacies, drug stores, and other retailers. For more information contact Yordis Morrison at nursesofftheclock@
