Scrubs

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.

Last week we had the opportunity to do an on-site photo shoot at a hospital in Saint Petersburg. It’s always exciting to be on a photo shoot set, especially one like this where we are in an active environment. Doctors, nurses and ancillary staff kept passing by to take a peek, share their own stories and naturally, to talk about healthcare uniforms.

 



Here are a few behind the scenes shots from our on-site photo shoot:

You wear & wash your scrubs where?

As it seems a new super bug is born every day, the subject of wearing and laundering scrubs outside of healthcare facilities continues to be a trending discussion now more than ever. Healthcare professionals on average work a 10 to 12 hour shift, so for some the thought of having to change into street clothes on their way out of work is just inconvenient.

It’s not very often that you hear fashion mentioned in the same sentence as healthcare, but over the past few years’ cutting edge technology has entered the field of healthcare fabrics.  These new fabrics are referred to as smart fabrics and are estimated to be worth over $400 million, with a growth potential of approximately 20 percent per year.

Scrubs: Unisex is out & style is in
26 Jan

Healthcare today is changing at a rapid pace. Not only is it changing in the way we receive and administer patient care and a focus on the patient as a consumer, but also in the type of uniforms being requested by today’s healthcare employees.  In an effort to keep up with this feverish pace, laundries are looking for new ways to accommodate the evolving needs and desires of today’s new age healthcare employees.

Scrubs and Lab Coats by Fashion Seal Healthcare

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. While pretending to be fascinated with the tomatoes that were on sale, I examined her uniform from a distance trying to determine the brand. As I watched her handle fruit and set it back on the shelf, it occurred to me that she had just come from work where she had been working with presumably ill patients all day.

One of the many advantages of a uniform program is employee role identification.  Many times, a visit to a healthcare facility is accompanied by nerves, anxiety, worry or downright fear, not only for the patient, but also the family members.  By incorporating a uniform program that is color-coded by role, patients have a visual cue of who is a caregiver

Having a unified uniform program is vital to the health of an organization. However, have you ever thought about the manufacturer providing your company with uniforms?
