Just when we thought there were enough antibiotic-resistant bacteria out there, along comes the new kid on the block -- Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae or CRE. This drug-resistant germ is spreading throughout U.S. healthcare facilities, occurring in people receiving significant medical care. CRE is usually transmitted from person-to-person, often on the hands of health care employees*.

Is a scrub vending machine right for your healthcare facility?
05 Aug

“Walking a tightrope” - the term used by a laundry in Ohio describing the pros and cons of scrub vending machines being used to manage scrub loss and control.

While some hospitals are all for the use of scrub vending machines to manage their scrub uniforms, there are even more out there who say the cost is too high. When you factor in the cost of the actual scrub vending machine and weigh it against the actual scrub loss without one, the math speaks for itself.

Scrub repurposing by Fashion Seal Healthcare®
29 Jul

Welcome to Part 2 of the series "How to repurpose scrubs”. In Part one, we showed you how to turn a scrub top into a pint-sized kids skirt. Today we are going to spice things up in the kitchen with a fun bib apron design. Because the fabric used for scrubs wears and washes well, an apron is a great way to give a scrub top a second life! This happens to be a more feminine print, but the style of the garment would work well for anyone.

In today’s competitive healthcare market, nobody likes to be a backup distributor - as some might view this as finishing in second place. After selling as a distributor for 30+ years, I have come to realization that being a backup is not such a bad option.

Healthcare Marketing Trends for 2014
22 May

Smith & Jones published a white paper on Healthcare Marketing’s Top Trends for 2014 related to hospitals and physician practices.  This white paper focused on hospitals and physician practices but many of the points they hit on apply to everyone in the healthcare market place.

Color-Coded and Branded Uniform Program from Fashion Seal Healthcare®
15 May

In April, I traveled to Chicago for the Beryl Institute’s Patient Experience Conference.  Something I do at any event is ask my fellow-conference go-ers what other conferences they’ve recently attended.  Many said the Patient Experience conference was the one and only.  For many, budget constraints limit their organizational investment to one event a year and patient experience is what they felt was the most important.  It wasn’t too surprising to learn that attendance at this particular event has grown from 200 participants in 2011 to more than 670 participants in 2014.
