Brand Consistency: How it can help your Outpatient Facility
18 Oct

Outpatient facilities are often a part of a large hospital or IDN. In a way, an outpatient facility is an extension of a unified health system and therefore a representation of the health system's brand and image. This may seem like a great thing for the brand, until upon closer inspection, some may find that uniforms don't match, patients can't identify their caregivers and employees don't feel like a part of a unified workplace. 

Could you imagine a world where Doctors didn't wear lab coats?
23 Aug

Think back to your most recent visit to a hospital or doctor’s office. Did the nurse who took your pulse and blood pressure wash her hands before touching you?  How often are his or her scrubs laundered and sanitized?

How about your doctor?  Does he wear a tie? How often is it cleaned? What about doctors who wear lab coats?  How often are they changed?

Scrubs and Hospital Security
26 Jul

I received a call from one of our salesmen the other day.  He asked, “Do we make any ugly scrubs for any of our customers?”

“Say again.”

“I have a customer that is looking for really bright scrubs, in something like construction orange.”

I get it, for vendors visiting the hospital. We used to ship buttercup colored scrubs to a Midwest hospital, for their visitors. Hospitals like to keep track of vendors wandering the halls. If they are in a bright color, they’re easy to distinguish from hospital staff. 

The Rise of Scrubs with No Pockets
28 Jun

I’ve been working in the customer service department for over 14 years, and it seems like there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t learn something new. Recently I had a customer ask, “when are you going to start providing clean scrubs, especially warm-ups?”  The term “clean scrubs” baffled me.  We provide inter suits in our Worklon line; they look sort of like regular scrub tops and bottoms but are worn under cleanroom garments. However, apparently this wasn’t what she had in mind.

There's a new fabric in town...The Mobies!
01 Mar

In an effort to offer modern and relevant pediatric knit gowns and pajamas, Fashion Seal Healthcare’s team of designers created the Mobies™.  The team found inspiration for these one-of-a-kind characters from popular children’s animated films as well as children’s love for mobile devices.  This fun and friendly print will attract boys and girls of all ages.  Toddlers will love the bright and happy colors while pre-teens can associate these characters with their favorite mobile devices. 

Laundry Challenges – Inventory control and securing textiles

In today’s environment when it comes to inventory control and securing textiles, suppliers and laundries walk a fine line on a daily basis.  As market conditions continue to change and become more competitive, it is important to maintain strong partnerships and solid communication with our off shore manufacturing partners.  

Engaging Millennial Nurses
05 Oct

The nurses entering the work force today are tomorrow’s nurse leaders.  Yet, traditional nursing schools do not always train nurses for leadership roles.  Today’s leaders need to mentor and coach these upcoming Millennial nurses. 

Press Ganey CNO Christy Dempsey states the key qualities of nurse leaders include the ability to:

1.      Foster trust and teamwork

2.      Model compassion and empathy

3.      Provide support in the form of human, material and emotional resources
