Inspired by “Johnny Cash.” Also from personal feelings of isolation.

The traditional johnny coat, the thin, drafty, and revealing hospital gown that ties in the back and represents for many patients everything they hate about being in the hospital: a loss of comfort, dignity, and control. Nurses and doctors used to call them ‘I-C-U’ gowns, because you could really see people from the rear. The term “Johnny” appears to be born in Boston. According to the Historical Dictionary of American Slang: Johnny is “Common in Boston area hospitals from ca1900, but apparently unknown elsewhere.”
