Things You Didn’t Know About Rochester – Mayo’s Disposable Hijabs
Never tell me there's a better hospital than Mayo, because I won't believe it.
Over 10,000 people shared it and over 160,000 people liked it. That means Rochester, Minnesota, Mayo Clinic patient Melissa Stone went viral sharing something she discovered inside a Mayo Clinic changing room.
"A DISPOSABLE HIJAB"
Mayo Clinic says they've been offering the disposable hijab since 2018. It'll come along with your gown and cute little non-slippy-slipper-socks. IF you don't get one, just ask and you'll have one lickity-split.
Reading thru the comments and replies I learned the response was so huge because it was such an unusual and wildly welcome thing. Many religions make use of a hijab, or something like it, and many in the comments talk about feeling incredibly exposed during procedures where they could use a disposable hijab.
So huge and cool and wonderful...and made right here in Rochester at the Ability Building Community! First created as surgical hoods, they serve a dual purpose.. ABC makes about 5,000 per month.
