Cherokee Scrubs - When Comfort is a Priority

 If you spend 12 or more hours at a time on shift then the scrubs you wear have to be comfortable, this means that you should pay attention to the brand of scrubs you buy, since not all scrubs will offer you the comfort that you need and expect. Cherokee Scrubs has been in the business of making scrubs long enough to know what the medical profession needs from their scrubs and works to make sure that their scrubs fit right and offer the comfort that you need.

Scrubs need to be loose fitting in all the right places without being baggy, so that you will be able to move with ease and perform your job without your clothes binding up on you. Cherokee scrubs have been thoroughly researched to ensure that they give you the room to move where you most needs but still allow you to look good in your scrubs.

Scrubs need to be durable and last as well, and this is something that Cherokee Scrubs has put a lot of effort into ensuring that their scrubs can stand up to the demands your work schedule will put on them.

Marcus Uniforms Offers a full line of Cherokee scrubs in both men's and women's and a broad range of sizes to ensure you can find the right size and color.

Should you Wear Your Street Clothes with Your Scrubs?

On a recent doctor’s visit, I took advantage of my opportunity to scan the office to see what everyone was wearing. I observe which scrubs brands people prefer, whether the office has implemented a common dress code and what the first impression is as a result of that dress code.

As we walked in, we were met by several receptionists who were not in scrubs at all, but rather were casually, but professionally dressed. Because of the height of the counter, I could only see the tops, but they wore sweaters or blouses, and everyone looked appropriately dressed for an office job. When the nurse called my daughter into the exam room, I realized that some of the women behind the counter were not office personnel at all, but rather were medical personnel who had paired a sweater or blouse with their scrub pants and tennis shoes. I could not help but wonder who made the administrative decision to mandate or even allow a street clothes/scrubs combination for medical personnel and more, importantly, why? It ultimately came down to 4 choices, none of which made any logical sense: appearance, expense, comfort or indifference.

Appearance was easily dismissed. Did someone in the office really ponder then decide that a nice sweater and a pair of scrub pants evoke confidence, competence and caring? I’m sure that we’ve all seen someone that has mixed two styles that should have been kept far apart such as summer and winter fashions or fabrics. The sweater/scrub combination didn’t work. I have seen medical personnel that throw on a cardigan sweater or even sweatshirt over scrubs which I assume is because it offers more warmth than a scrub jacket. Here, the top resembled the clerical staff and the bottom resembled the medical staff. Together, they screamed fashion faux pas or perhaps just fashion confusion.

With so many inexpensive scrubs options available and scrub sets as inexpensive as $10.99 for the top and bottom, it is hard to believe that medical personnel in a pediatrician’s office would rally behind a policy that preferred street clothes to scrub tops. If they are already purchasing scrub pants, scrub tops have to be less expensive than a sweater or ready to wear top. Moreover, they are cheaper and easier to launder in the likely event that something gets soiled during the workday.

Comfort didn’t quite work either because scrub tops, unless they are unusually short, are more comfortable than professional wear. Medical personnel move around a lot and it is difficult to imagine that a sweater or blouse would be more comfortable over scrub pants than a scrub top, scrub jacket or scrub top with layered tee.

That left the most disheartening reason: indifference. Perhaps someone in an administrative office made the decision having never walked into the office to gauge first impression? Perhaps no one made the decision and over time, having received no positive or negative feedback, the personnel simply wore what they wanted. I wondered where that would lead. There were so many inexpensive professional scrubs options that would have easily identified the personnel in the office and presented a professional first impression to anyone walking through the door. Kids would love the bright colors or whimsical prints and adults would appreciate knowing that they are addressing a question or concern to the right person in the office.

Solid Medical Scrubs Group Orders

A Little Preparation will Prevent a lot of Chaos

Have you been charged with ordering solid medical scrubs for your office or department?  Perhaps the thought of trying to please everyone has already caused a sudden increase in your stress level.  Here are a few pointers to help you navigate your way to hopefully pleasing most of the people, most of the time.

Establish the requirements first.  How much time do you have?  What is the required color?  Generally, if you are doing a group order, your goal is to have everyone in your office or department have a professional appearance that is easily identifiable.  Find out also if warm-up jackets or lab coats are allowed or required before you start.   You may want to ask if men and women can wear different styles such as a unisex style with a chest pocket vs. a traditional v-neck with 2 lower pockets.  You may also want to ask if everyone must wear the same type of scrub pant.  Sometimes there are flare pant options for women, elastic waist options and drawstring options.  

Finally, inquire about embroidery   Many medical departments are opting to add an embroidered logo or name to scrub tops to finish the look.  Knowing in advance exactly what the requirements are will help you to channel your scrub outfitting efforts in the right direction from the beginning.  Use your list of questions and answer as your road map.

Purchasing Solids for a Group‚ÄîNow that you know what color you are looking for, keep in mind that dye lots in solid medical scrubs vary from brand to brand even within the same manufacturer so be sure to order solid tops and bottoms from the same manufacturer AND the same line within that manufacturer.  For example, ">Cherokee Workwear solids are not always identical to Cherokee Studio B.  Similarly, Cherokee Workwear solid colored scrubs are not going to match exactly to White Swan Fundamentals solid colors even if you are ordering navy, ceil or black.  

Evaluate the Group.  A large group promises a range of sizes, not to mention preferences.   Generally, large manufacturers such as White Swan or Cherokee will offer the most options for sizing and styles which will make your job considerably easier.   First, are you outfitting men and women?  Men tend to prefer a chest pocket and a drawstring waist pant so make sure there is a unisex option.   If your employer prefers that everyone wear the same style, you may want to look for a 3 pocket scrub top option.  Do you need talls, petites or shorts in scrub pant lengths?  Having different length options for both men and women will help ensure a better fit and reduce exchanges, another benefit for you.  Cherokee Workwear and White Swan fundamentals offer those options in almost all colors.    Do any of the women require skirts?  Marcus Uniforms offers skirts by White Swan Fundamentals in several colors.   

Finally, establish your plus size requirements in advance so that you can be sure everyone‚Äôs scrubs will match.  Marcus Uniforms offers talls, shorts, petites and plus sizes in both Cherokee and White Swan.  We can also access the manufacturer‚ inventory for you if there is a size or color that we don‚Äôt have in our warehouse.

Size the Group.  No matter what brand you select and what retailer you choose, sizing information should be made readily available to you including instructions on how to take the required measurements.  Marcus Uniforms includes a manufacturer size chart at the bottom of every product page.   Each person should individually consult the size charts and submit size requirements to you including pant lengths.  Keep in mind that pant lengths are listed by inseam.  A spreadsheet becomes a valuable tool at this stage.

Select your Retailer.   When ordering medical scrubs for a group, you want to make sure that your retailer will continue stocking your selected scrubs so that you can easily replenish from time to time.  Is there a free shipping or group discount option?   How long does it take to ship?  What is the return policy?   Watch out for fine print on return labels.  If there is a return label included in the package and you use it, will you be charged for it later against your exchange or refund?  Is embroidery available?  If you don‚ see exactly the scrub style you want, will the retailer check with the manufacturer and find it for you?  Can you speak with a person directly to get your questions answered?  Is pricing competitive?   Ask questions or even ask for a price quote in advance.  You are an important customer and the retailer should be happy to assist you to earn your business.   If you need assistance with a group order, we‚Äôd be happy to help.  We can even go through these questions with you and help you sort out your information, make suggestions and help with sizing issues.

Consider Samples.   It may be a good idea to order some samples in advance.    Even if you have to pay for samples, check the return policy.  You may be able to return them within a certain period of time for refund.  Samples will allow you to make sure that the color and style that you‚Äôve selected meet your expectations.  They may also allow you to establish size guidelines and minimize returns later.

Pat Yourself on the Back.    Even if you haven‚Äôt pleased all of the people all of the time, you've outfitted a group in medical scrubs and you deserve a little praise.  Hopefully, a little advanced planning made it a relatively smooth process‚Ķuntil the required colors change.   Let us know how we can help at Marcus Uniforms.

Nursing Professionals and Cherokee Uniforms

Medical uniforms and specifically nurses’ uniforms have evolved through the years, but have emerged as a very important part of the personality of the nurse. The historical starched white uniform signified a solemn discipline, compassion and caring. It was called called a “fever proof uniform” and covered almost the entire body of the nurse. Interestingly, however, the nurse never wore gloves or mask. The 1840’s saw new nursing uniforms which depicted the patriarchal constraints within which nurses worked and dressed. In fact, the uniform signified the dress of a female servant of the time. Fast forward to today. How times have changed. The new uniforms worn by nurses are called scrubs, offer bright colors, designs, encouraging words and a whole host of pant styles to fit all shapes, sizes and personalities.

Cherokee nursing uniforms
