As we edge closer to the end of another year, we know one thing is on the mind of every company: budgeting. For the past few months, everyone has been swimming in spreadsheets and budget meetings galore, making sure that all necessary items get considered for the next fiscal year. However, have you remembered one crucial item?

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?

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.

TBT: Nurses – The Heart of Healthcare
22 Sep

The importance of nurses in the healthcare field has grown leaps and bounds in recent years. While all roles are crucial in the industry, the roles of nurses have evolved to encompass MANY aspects that in the past would either be taken care of by other team members or not thought about all.

Will Assisted Living Pass its Torch to the Next Generation?
07 Sep

            Entering an assisted living facility brings back a multitude of memories about living in a college dorm. The residents here, mostly elderly, have a dining hall and a lobby with a piano, yet the entire facility seems void of any human presence. As I leave the elevator and start towards a former neighbor’s room, I come across doors with decorations, the first sign of some personal effects.

Why Millennials Still Find Healthcare Unaffordable
24 Aug

In April, Baby Boomers passed the crown as the largest living generation to Millennials, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. There are now more Americans between the ages of 18-34 than those aged 51-69.  Millennials have an increasing influence on just about every industry out there, including Healthcare.  But why do only two-thirds of Millennials have health insurance?
