Comfort is Key, Correct?

Like I briefly mentioned in an earlier entry, bring your own comfortable sweats to wear when you’re admitted to the hospital. If you don’t, you’ll probably be swimming in an enormous drafty uncomfortable hospital gown. I very rarely put on a gown; I only wore one for surgery (I’ve had about a dozen but who’s counting?) or when it was absolutely necessary for a test like a CAT scan or echocardiogram.

Every time I was seen in the Emergency Room, which was countless times, I was told to put on a gown. For the most part, that’s just protocol (you know what I’m talking about, you’ve all seen the stereotypical hospital scene on television where a person playing a patient dons a gown that ties in the back and exposes the person’s backside) so don’t be afraid to speak up, politely of course, if you prefer to remain in your own clothes.
