Protective clothing (disposable isolation clothing) comprises coats, suits, aprons and coveralls. Disposable protective clothing cannot withstand industrial washing processes. Some protective clothing can withstand steam sterilisation at 121˚C, a process that is available in most hospitals. For sterilisation on a large scale, gamma radiation could be useful. Health care facilities might send their used protective clothing to a gamma irradiation company using the logistics of laundries serving hospitals.
