MEDICAL SCRUBS WHY THEY ARE SO IMPORTANT
Scrubs are the sanitary clothing worn by surgeons, nurses, physicians and other workers involved with patient care in hospitals. Originally designed for use by surgeons and other operating room personnel, who would put them on when sterilizing themselves, or "scrubbing in", before surgery. Today, they are worn by many hospital personnel and have become a form of standard uniform.
In the healthcare industry, uniforms and clothing are of the utmost importance. Uniforms protect employees from contaminants and make an employee’s job easier; each uniform and clothing item serves its own purpose. Scrubs are an important component in providing adequate healthcare. Their role in the medical facility is vital.
Here are some of the factors that medical staff, healthcare facilities and patients benefit from scrubs:
- SCRUBS PROVIDE COMFORT AND RANGE OF MOVEMENT FOR THE WEARER
It’s no secret that healthcare professionals have some of the most physically demanding jobs around. Aid patients, assist in operations, constantly on the move in the hospitals are some of the tasks our front line warriors – our hospital teams perform. To perform their jobs efficiently, they need uniforms that will give them optimum comfort, easy movement and breathable material.
- MEDICAL SCRUBS PROVIDE ADEQUATE PROTECTION AGAINST BODILY FLUIDS
High-quality medical scrubs are made of fabric thick enough to prevent a patient’s bodily fluids from making direct contact with the wearer’s skin.
- SCRUBS HELP PROTECT AGAINST CROSS CONTAMINATION
Cross contamination is not just a problem within a facility but is also a community health concern. Medical scrubs that are processed in a specialized facility (and not in employee homes) prevent the spread of possibly contagious infections and viruses. Scrubs must be cleaned with as much precision and with the same focus on hygiene as any other medical care linen.
- HELPS IDENTIFY CONTAMINANTS AND FLUIDS
Scrubs are fantastic for aiding in the identification of harmful contaminants and fluids. It is important to do so to minimize contamination and reduce bacteria from spreading from the various fluids they handle day-in day-out.
- SCRUBS ARE FUNCTIONAL
Scrubs are designed to help make the job easier for the wearer, with their accessible large pockets for keeping small important items and their range of motion.
- SCRUBS ARE ECONOMICALLY EFFICIENT
Scrubs are designed for maximum use and cost efficiency. They are made of high-quality fabric that is both inexpensive and can withstand even the most thorough cleaning process possible. This means that they can last through longer times of wash and wear and are easy to replace.
- SCRUBS MAKE HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS EASILY IDENTIFIABLE
Like every company uniform, scrubs provide easy identification of the firm’s professionals. These identifications are usually enhanced with custom color combinations or clinic logo prints/embroidery over the uniform.
