 Campaign encourages patients to wear day clothes rather than pyjamas during their stay in hospital

Kettering General Hospital has launched a campaign that encourages patients to wear day clothes rather than pyjamas during their stay in hospital.

The campaign – called End Pyjamas Paralysis – is designed at helping appropriate patients to stay active and mobile while in hospital and prevent the deconditioning that can result from long stays where people spend a lot of time inactive and in bed.

The campaign was launched on Lamport and Twywell Wards at the hospital on Tuesday 4th July and the aim is to take the concept out to more of the hospital’s wards in the coming months.
