Nurses and their Uniforms

It is a fact that one of the most common professions these days is nursing. Nurses come in flocks especially in the Philippines, and they often have to face a lot of the challenges that come with the fact that the competition is high. At least most of the uniforms that nurses use are affordable, instead of those high priced suits that some people wear.

Since the nursing scrubs are used on a daily basis and are used in areas that are known for being squeaky clean, it has to be durable enough to undergo frequent washing and endure the toughest of detergents in order to provide the nurses and patients with the protection that they need as they work.

Of course, there are a lot of ways to find cheap scrubs, and although some nurses prefer to exchange their scrub top more than the bottom, it is a good thing to have an extra top handy especially in cases where they have to make quick changes.

For those who are unaware of what scrubs are, scrubs are the trousers and shirts that are worn by surgeons, nurses, and other personnel whenever they have to “scrub in”. In other countries, these clothes are known as “Theatre Blues” and are designed to have minimal places for dirt to take up residence.

Although initially meant for surgery, the wearing of these scrub suits have already been extended outside the surgery room’s walls. These have been issued when the street clothing of the wearer has been contaminated.

Scrubs is also known for being the title of the comedy-drama television show that was created in 2001. In the television show, the focus of the whole series is the lives of several employees in Sacred Heart, a fictional hospital. Basically, the central character is Dr. John “J.D.” Dorian, who is portrayed by Zach Braff.
