When it comes to scrub uniforms not all are created equal. There was a time, however, not so long ago when they were created equal and all scrubs looked the same. Thankfully, it is a new day and age in the medical field and along with these changing times come a variety of scrubs for healthcare professionals.
Considering that as a professional healthcare worker you will be spending most of your working day in scrubs, it makes a lot of sense to look for the most comfortable and appealing scrubs on the market. After all, you don’t want to just feel good, you want to look great as well.
When choosing scrubs look for shirts that are low enough so that they breathe well but are high enough to still look professional. The pants should be tight enough to stay up but loose enough to allow you to remain flexible and comfortable.
You can find scrub pants and tops in a variety of different styles, colors and designs. Scrubs can be made from microsilk, 100% cotton, poly cotton or a combination of cotton and spandex. Colors range from pink, yellow and green all the way up to bright reds and blues. There are also a number of patterned scrubs available for the professional that is tired of wearing solid colors and is looking for something different.
Pattern scrubs may also be referred to as designer scrubs since they are made in fashionable designs using the best quality fabrics. These scrub pants and tops have elastic waistbands and large pockets that will fit tools and instruments. As well, many of these designer scrub pants have a side vent so that nurses and other healthcare professionals that are on the go can receive more breathability from the pants.
It’s nice to see the variety open up when it comes to scrubs. Patients seem enthusiastic about the changes as well since the plain green scrubs that most are used to seeing have had their day and have become simply boring.
Scrubs are alive and well and the new designs are doing great in the marketplace. More and more hospitals and health-care settings are opening up to the idea of replacing drab green scrubs with colorful or patterned ones.
