Hi everyone. This is your life coach, Debra Brown, welcoming you to taking a leap or guest today is yours Morrison. Your Morrison is a registered nurse, volunteer and CEO of nurses off the clock LLC and the author of hearts talk. She began her nursing career as a psychiatric nurse, and since worked in various nursing specialties, including medical surgical. Trauma, liver transplants, and currently psychiatry. Yours is commitment to excellent. Patient care has made her a multiple recipient of her hospitals, north nurse excellence award after watching the privacy of patients and her late mother compromised, you're eating hospitals days. Yours was inspired to design. Madonna's a medical pajama that protects patients body privacy as well as accommodate the medical lines and appliances worn by patients in hospitals and other care settings. She was granted a patent for her Lewis, medi, pajama puns in two thousand seventeen, and has a patent pending for her pajamas shirts, your lives, an active life involving family friends and faith. Welcome to the show yard is how are you. Thank you. I'm great. Thank you. That you are here. So my first question to every guest is what has been your biggest leap in life when you look back. Okay. My biggest leap in life was in twenty seventeen. When I decided to apply for a design patent for a medical pajama that I designed for patient. It was my biggest leap because I had no experience in patent search, and I knew that any search that idea or even a tough attorney. Might not show whether or not you're something similar? Oh, there it was a leap also because I knew if the patent was issued in Manta was going into a different industry outside of their healthcare, industrial and being a nurse for so many years. That's all I knew, and that's all I know. So it was frightening. That's what's my biggest leap. So it's been a year basically that you've been, you've been on this leap of yours. Yet now. So has it been because it sounds like it's working pretty fine. Is working on prettify and it's a big learning curve from it. Because as I said, I've always been in healthcare always been a nurse. So many of the terminology used in marketing or in this own work industry. They are like foreign to me. So it takes me time to grasp certain things. It takes me time to make certain connection, but it is working. It sounds all I'm working with people who know the industry and has been in it for some time. So gradually becoming the nurse for near that. I wanna be. So take me through his journey a little because as you say, nursing was all you and know you are clothing designer really is right. Right. Yes. Yeah. Just where did all that come from? I know you mentioned in your bio that there was some frustration, you know, watching the privacy of patients being absent arise. Yeah, especially your mother, what? What's what happened there was that the the moment, the light bulb went off with your moment, something with the beginning. I think that's actually the beginning my mom. She was bag nosed with breast cancer several years ago, and I'm the second oldest of girls for as long as I can remember. My mom was a single mom. She was nice superheroes. So when my called to tell me that on mom had breast cancer, it was devastating. She was always the first first night called when I have good news, bad news needed prayer. Being having the diagnosis when she had to be in on all of the hospital. When at times I went to the hospital, she was cold as ING and her body was exposed. It was exposed because the goals are oversized and she was petite. Even if your foods triggers the guns are exposing. Exposing you so many times that go, her butts was the most private parts of her body and. Devastating for her because not only what she struggling with accessing the diagnosis and the pain of the disease. But she was going through the side effects of the chemotherapy. So far moments I wanted to be Hearst superhero. I wanted to say I couldn't save her from the pain, but I thought I could at least try to protect her. But it privacy and in that woman, Michelle was born, but I'll Xuemei mom. She never lived to wear version because it has been a distant between the time. I thought of the idea actually came together by hole on my I'm vision. Is that other persons in similar position or any requiring treatment would not have to go through what my mom when through one more patients are going through now. You know, you you, you can help your mom. No, you can help someone else's mom. Keep that level of dignity and so forth that you know that they may need at the time like that. Yeah, going out. I was going to say. So I'm fortunate that checking into the hospital for care. Sometimes you have to give up your dignity to get that care, but it should not be like that on. I'm hoping that Michelle has changed that that you can come to the hospital, maintain your dignity and get optimal care at the same time. Little bit about the journey there. So the idea came, the idea came, the design came at that time or what. Grow. Okay. The idea to come up with with something to cover her body. So she lived in New York. I lived in Florida, so I would go back and forth doing that time. I started thinking of ways of doing of making the charmless as I walked through the hallways on my job as I take care of patients within the Kim clearer and clear and clear. So the drawings that had the, what do you say they changed as time goes by onto actually came up with a drawing, Felton nicer. This was the trick. So it's it's raw. I would say over years. Unfortunately, it is over years drawing on the concepts and perfected. No, and that's then I bet leap. Any months or year, would you say that that you were developing the design for before you felt that you had it. If I were to be honest with you, and I'm gonna be honest, it's probably over over twelve years. The actual design south? Yeah. Time coming. My mom actually passed away before the twelve years. But this time I got serious with it was about twelve years ago, and I have to do this. What was that moment for you? Because it's owns that I, you remember moment where you got serious. What was today trigger. Sometimes you get that trigger, you know, like we. Yeah. What was yours? My trigger was one one week and I was working and I remember the morning, I turned up at work. It was one of the deceased days I had to patients. I was giving blood transfusion. I had a patient with a liver transplant. I had a patient falling out of there, and it was just very, very, very hectic and I remembered I walked in a patient room. I remember the room. The patients based on a patient said to me, have you ever thought of making of rule for patients? And once he said that, I said, this is my, this is my green light to go and dot time I started thinking more and more. And then when I came home from work in the evenings, I would go to my computer and I start searching for seamstresses manufacturer, cooking everything search engine just to come up with something to start Niger. So that was asked about, I put it known for a while lated Bill because I never had the cash. But then again, I was. Going through something very difficult on nights out, very challenging. Ducks Miami's came to me. You should just start looking into doing Madonna's on. I started about. About five years ago, and I never back. Well, so we gave a little bit in the bio, but Madonna's, but could you let our listeners really more boats, the design this, the other idea on? Yes. So many people might note the hospital gone are one size fits all oversize open in the back. Your body's exposed to to strangers all the time when you're wearing. So Michelle looks like regular here pajama it's has access along the lease along there in seem all the way up to the ways that means caregivers can access and part of your body to give prescribe here with you being exposed constantly. So one of the most of the most common lines patients where in hospitals are they, you're in our drainage catheter and an icy. It's ideal for that and your body remains comfort. You can't have your ID and can have your drainage catheter and you can walk the hallways and fifteen years ago, fearing accidental exposure of your body. So. So. Think of the hospital setting you you kind of prepare for the the rare in being out being. Yes. Good back like who, who doesn't think of that. When I think of, you know, the hospitals having to be there. It's on these because it is unfortunate because like you said, you think your back has the oath, but it doesn't have to be out there several and healthcare workers take it for granted patient expected to bit of care workers taking for granted when patients bodies close, it means nothing to them because they're not focusing on the person's body, but several studies have been published on how but exposure affect patients where they're in hospital that takes them negatively and the studies phone that patients who are sixty five years and older, it affects them immensely. If. Patients the five years on all it more immensely than any other age, if flows healing process. And it contributes the what they call those hospitals syndromes that is when a patient is discharged home from the hospital because of the trauma experienced in hospital from the blood draws lack of sleep, the body exposure the patients and of coming back to the hospital in less than thirty or something completely different from what they were admitted for. So that's wonder, studies show so ago we take it for granted a patient Bobby privacy's pools, and the patient says, this is expected. It has a very negative impact from patients. They're very negative. Interesting. You think maybe an older person would you know they've seen like they've been through it all, you know that maybe wouldn't affect that tough relation as much, but you're saying that's the population that is. Affected interesting. That is the populate and I can't understand why that's time you. You're like your private as a older person for private of your body or not as like a younger person. If the breast star some places. Oh, it doesn't matter to them some time 'cause they're looking good, but all the persons older you take their body who are not owning that the persons who are caring for you are usually younger than you are the when you have to strip down your body to say somebody who is eighteen or nineteen years could be child. It is. It is. It's like experience. The. Mix it? Yes. Yeah. So we can take or pajamas to the. I mean, we see patients with their own pajamas. So. Yeah. So how is it that? Well, I'll have you been. 'cause I think you know what. Hertzen can pay own JAMA to the hospital, what it's not advisable for several reasons. Care givers don't have easy access to your body in the event up on emergencies has to be something I tend to take off in a listen. I'm minute, can result in the other thing is that if you have lines and trains and catheters, your pajamas, kind of accommodate those vying. So I'll though they have managed to the bedside drawer at the hospital, they can't wear it because you kind of wish with fully you can weird to intervene line. It's come with the card in wanted to had patients, and there's just put the sleeve caught here, but it's easy to seek it. But when his plan for them to go home, they're devastated that their job is like report to orange. So that is why easy access to the body. And that is why the gone are made that we so caregivers have easy. Access to the body. And why to back opening, why can they do cite opening or like. That that is good question. But I think also is if the patient is lying on the bed and they're lying there back, then the buck is open sprayed on top of the body. So if you need to get to the abdomen are say, the patient is incontinent, not the patient doesn't know when he or she wants to the Monday going to bed the clues going, not because it's like open at the back on just lying on the side of you, and it's really for quick access to the body on the side. I'm not sure how that would work. Wow. Well, it sounds like you are about to revolutionize the way we do stays at hospitals? Yes, absolutely. I mean, think about that because as I said, I think everyone has a picture in your head, right? No. About about the look of people in Goan in hospitals with their rear ends out somebody here is in a hospital this true. I got personal experience that I remember I went for a tip and I had to put the going on. I had to have an ID and I had to give a doing specimen, but the place you have to go outside of the Cuban, your place at good fifty minutes. The girls how to protect my body, private meaning more backup to go how to hold their IV pooled on hold the corporate same time. I had to figure that old. This may the first step out of the room. That's too much. Public pitching should be able to come to the hospital dignity, men teams who than having to figure things out stress themselves phone. It needs to focus one hundred percents of their inner and getting well not in house of particular crisis. That's what most of the energy goes towards ho. Can I think covered he anti. Yes, I go back to my mom. Some people said, so why can't they cover themselves at one point, my mom was in too much pain. You know, cancer is paying too much pain to even care that she was exposed. Another point as the disease progressed. She was to consume. Real life. What was happening to her? The patients are in different phases of their illness and sometimes less. There's somebody sitting at bedside would pull the covers over them or that the, you know, they just are cooled and exposed all the time. I think it's it's a, it's a fabulous idea invention. I mean kudos to you, you're so thank you. We are you in the process? No. Can someone purchased this right now or what? What where are you for? They know that two thousand seventeen. Everything really got serious yet. So we are ready to launch in October. The eighteenth of October Shammas will be launched what person can purchase it like pre purchase it before the launch. Dave is they want to. So what does the loan or what will the launch look like? From the knowledge is I am collaborating with the Kemper society because my mom had brisk and have very tough, but for the Kansas science patients with cancer. So I had committed to the needing one hundred pajamas to cancer patient and on the eighteen I would be making that presentation to the American champion society, and it will go to ward two lodges the Cancer Society have several lodges for patients into it is a patient goes to tell a Hassi for cancer treatment. They think that's where they get the best treatment, but they Ford hotel and everything. The Cancer Society has certain lodges that patient, some their loved one can say, without worrying about ho, I might gonna pay for this on my gonna. Do these pajamas would be donated to. To large. I think one is in Tom for an one in Gainesville to patients. I see. I see. So it sounds like it could be because you had to remind me in just in what you're saying that this is not something that people would be leaving with just like Hoffman's going where they leave that behind. Right. When I put, I think we're own pets here. He's going to be the hospitals. But this is a private life of patients would buy for themselves or their loved ones will buy it for them. It's not something that the hospital is gonna line distributing patient as the committee. I think eventually like try to hospitals and by and gives us a car package to their private patients. But for most hospitals, patients who take them home, it's it wouldn't be an investment for the hospital because I know they will disappear. I mean, think about that. Like if you get a pretty nice, you know, bureau pajamas. Roomba going to believe it's are not patient take on the ground. They take the towels pillowcases particular sheet. Exactly. Exactly. They're taking the going with and then yes, they would want. Exactly. Nations that that's the big thing I knew it confirm much it. Is it feeling exciting yet, or what phase are you in rhino. In that very exciting. I seem for excited. I feel that I've made a headway and I feel a lot of excitement is that I'm gonna make different people's life because even when I think of the the nation to the patients, these largest, I remember my mom lying in hostage, EMMY supports whatever it is helps the patients. So for someone to say, here is a pajama you can wear this, the therapy it, it makes a world of different. So that's kind of excitement that I am feeling seeing the response of patients when they get these good job when their bodies are warm when their body privacy's not expose when their dignities not compromise. Because when patients I've seen this over and over patients go to the hospital and if you're trusting your pajamas or in. Nice rule. People address you by your name, and if you wear the house to uniform, some patients crawling your address by your number or your diagnosis. I'm not sure of the reason and I'm sure I'm guilty of it in some way, but it happened. It happened. I think he just gave us an insight scoop because I don't think as as you know, ciders, we know that that you know the culture so to speak, what whether it's deliberate or not, as you say you, you don't. Yeah, I don't think it's deliberate and I don't know why happen, but it also if he happens that people miss the Brown room five or they say the asthmatic eight. I'm not sure. From art happen, but it's the reality. That definitely in that is something that if I were to ever be in in the hospital setting, I would be listening. Yeah, because the nurses. Close enough to the nurses station. You'll hear it at some point in time. So they referred to them. Brown, four or five your this. Thank you so much. So how can people reach you? Let's let us know it may can find out more about your line and they can reach you. Okay. I could reach me at support that's actually PPO Artear at by b, y y r dot all. All. Or they could call me at eight hundred eighty two six. If you're nine seven or they could go to my website by your dot coal guy. Your b. y. y r dot c. oil to purchase. Tristesse lovely, and they can purchase as of October eighteenth. They could play their orders. No, but then on the eighteen to launch the eighteen they could preorder. We have limited quantities start it so they, they're interested. They could preorder and they should get into way before the end of a over or.
