Have you ever stopped to consider just how many different businesses there are in your local town or city? If you take the time to look, you will notice that there are businesses of every kind, from little businesses which serve a few local customers to medium-sized companies which cater to the tourist and large multinationals who are trading on a global scale. However, the one thing each of these businesses will have in common is the fact that they are managed by someone who has a creative spark and a business brain. I'm not a businesswoman, but I have spent the last 7 months visiting various companies in my city so I could understand what made them successful and what made them fail. I have learnt from the best, so I hope you like my blog.

The Importance of Healthcare Uniforms in the Medical Field

When you walk into any hospital you expect to see medical professionals in uniforms: this has been the norm in the healthcare industry for decades. Chances are that if nurses and doctors are not in proper healthcare uniforms, you will not trust their services or you will opt for another facility altogether. Hence, the importance of uniforms in the healthcare industry.

In the early 1900s those in the medical field were required to wear white-coloured uniforms. However, in the 1940s medical scrubs, which came in a variety of colours, were introduced and standardised in the 1970s across all medical fields. Medical scrubs are now the norm in many if not all hospitals. While other industries have evolved and phased out uniforms, medical scrubs have still been retained in the modern medicine world due to the advantages they offer. These advantages include:

Form and Function

Most medical scrubs resemble pajamas, which are quite comfortable. Comfort ensures that each medical personnel is able to handle with ease the intense moments in a hospital setting, like long hours in the operating room and long shifts.

The multi-coloured healthcare uniforms also make it easier for professionals in the medical field to perform their functions. Unlike the white uniforms, which when combined with white lights in the operating room would cause eye strain to a surgeon and his/her staff, multi-coloured scrubs minimise eye fatigue, making it easy for a surgeon to perform more efficiently.

Classification and Identification

Because medical scrubs are available in a variety of colours, many hospitals usually designate a specific colour for professionals in various departments for classification purposes. For instance, nurses in the dental department might where blue scrubs, while those in the paediatric unit may wear pink scrubs. This makes it easier to identify professionals in a particular department.

Style

Just because healthcare uniforms are a requirement in the medical field, it does not mean that they cannot be stylish. Aesthetics are quite important in the modern world, and that is why stylish and more fashionable medical scrubs are constantly being designed and manufactured. However, they still retain the important attributes of being comfortable and functional.

Hygiene

Healthcare uniforms are manufactured in a way that inhibits the collection of dirt and dust. They are also easy to clean, thus promoting good hygiene in a hospital environment. 

Patients will tend to trust and have more confidence in medical professionals wearing healthcare uniforms
