Whenever entering a Facility for work, ensure your healthcare attire is professional, clean and most of all, showcases you care. First impressions are everything, right? So, what are some ways you can showcase your best self on your first day...
- Wear clean scrubs. Wash your uniform after every use (to protect your health and the patient’s). Also, this will help detox your house of germs that can be brought home from a Facility. For these reasons, washing your work attire after every wear is always a good idea.
- Scrubs looks most polished when they are wrinkle-free, free of tears, rips, holes, you get it. Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference.
- Revealing your undergarments, midriff or cleavage is never part of any uniform!
- Please note, if a Facility has a specific scrub color they would like, we'll be sure to let you know.
- Closed-toed, non-slip, no major heel, clean and polished shoes. We do not want you tripping or falling.
- Nobody likes stinky feet. Clean socks, every time can help combat this.
Personal Grooming and Accessories
- Your hair should be short or if it is long, secure it in a bun or ponytail
- Beards should be kept neat and groomed.
- Nails should be natural, clean and trimmed
- Avoid heavy perfumes or other strong smells (not everyone may have the same taste as you)
- Practicing regular hygiene like showering, brushing your teeth, wearing deodorant always make for a likable teammate
- For safety reasons, large/long pierced earrings are not to be worn
And please, gum-chewing, cell-phone use, and smelling of cigarettes are all activities that should be left for outside of work. It has been said, that the way we dress can influence the way we work and how we are perceived. How will the public look at you? Hopefully, your looks say about you - that you deliver awesome patient care and a kind smile. We know you will do great.
