There are roughly 34 licensed healthcare facilities in San Diego, and all of them will have medical personnel in scrubs. It's such a big part of the medical culture that a TV show about a hospital is named after them. With this ubiquity, it is tempting to order generic scrubs or get sloppy about their appearance. After all, no one cares if the equipment is decorated. However, scrubs are more than just equipment; it is part of your staff's identity. So why not create a customized design for your scrubs? You can have your staff vote on a logo or a font for their name which can then go on all of their scrubs. That way, not only will your scrubs be very chic and give everyone a little fun, but you will reap the following advantages.

Gets Employees Engaged

    A survey conducted by Bain discovered that people who got customized products were more engaged with companies than those who didn't. They stayed twice as long on the company's website and felt more loyal to the brand. This translates into our work environment, too. When we get specialized uniforms, we pay more attention to our work environment and get excited about our company's possibilities.

    And if you think about it, what your staff wears is an important part of their work environment. They bring it with them between nurse pods and offices. They will see the results of your customization every time they go to the bathroom at work. All this extra engagement will cut back on turnover and burnout in staff members, and give them the boost in morale that they need to see them through the long shifts they have to work.

Cheers Up Patients

     Ever walk into a room, spot someone wearing a clever t-shirt, and immediately smile? We can't help it: play on words and beautiful artwork lifts our mood, making even serious business fun. And let's face it, some of your patients are nervous. They are about to receive life-altering news in some form, or they worry that some little symptom indicates the onset of cancer. Some patients get nervous just about hospitals and lab coats in general. These upset patients are not in a good position to handle what the doctors and nurses are telling them. Their internal voices are screaming, so all they hear is 'doom, blah blah, doom.' Then they can't hear what they need to do to recover. 

    But get patients smiling with charmingly customized scrubs, and even patients that are about to receive bad news will be in a better frame of mind. They will be able to absorb information and follow instructions better. 

Cements Your Brand

    Your facility has a lot of competition, and you want to do everything you can to reward patients who choose you over the other options. Unique scrubs add to the general impression that your facility is a good place to stay while you recover your health. This impression can spread, too. A lot of people tell stories about their hospital stays. Customized scrubs might get a mention when your recovered patient talks about her or his illness and hospital stay, and even if they don't get singled out, they comfortable atmosphere it contributed to will. Customized scrubs may feel like a little thing, but anything that highlights your place will make your facility memorable, thus encouraging more people to choose you.
