22 Oct

Working as a uniform provider in the healthcare industry I tend to take notice any time I see an individual dressed in scrub apparel outside of my work bubble. On a recent trip to the grocery store I noticed what I presumed to be a nurse, near me in the produce aisle.

If you're looking to make a statement and be intense, wear red. If you want to gain someone’s trust, make it a blue outfit. If you want to appear creative, put on some purple.

Are you washing your hands wrong?

Doctor and Patient Experience

A few years ago, I heard a financial guru say studying stocks waste of time! People would have just as much success taking the stock listings from the financial page each day and throwing darts at it to pick their stocks.
