Healthcare is one of the fastest-changing industries out there when it comes to changes in technology and changes to the workforce. Nursing, in particular, is in very high demand, and salaries are becoming much more competitive.
That being said, gone are the days when there’s a stereotype of what a nurse should “look” like. No longer is there a stigma for men entering the field of nursing as salaries become more competitive and the industry becomes more diverse.
(Of course, our heart goes out to Greg Focker, played by Ben Stiller on Meet the Parents, when his prospective father-in-law doesn’t seem to think he can do anything right.)
With these evolving trends come new trends in medical apparel as well. Just because you’re a medical professional doesn’t mean you have to wear scratchy, gaudy, unisex scrubs with everyone else at work. There are trends in men’s scrubs that give you a more tailored look, as well as provide comfortable working conditions throughout your busy day.
Latest trends can be traced all the way to the material used to make men’s scrubs. Some companies are using recycled water bottles to provide longer-lasting, flexible fabric for a more comfortable feel. Also, new advances in antimicrobial technology helps guard against germs and bacteria in the workplace. Antimicrobial men’s scrubs are also odor-eliminating.
Finally, beyond the world of cartoon characters and cheerful prints of rainbows and flowers lies a world of men’s scrubs designed by men who wear scrubs. Standard scrubs are baggy, whereas scrubs tailored for men are more comfortable. Solid, neutral colors provide a more polished, professional look. Also, deep pockets, zippers, vents and styling help provide a functionality that standard unisex scrubs leave behind.
If you are a man in the medical field, don’t live in the past and wear outdated, unfunctional scrubs. Get with the times and find a pair of scrubs that not only make you look good, but feel better on the job.
When it comes to the selection of scrubs for the medical workplace, men have a few factors to consider along the way. The selection must incorporate comfort, practicality and style to look and feel comfortable while spending hours with patients. Having a few key factors in mind can make the selection of scrubs much easier for men who otherwise might wonder which is best for their work.
The first consideration is the fabric of the scrubs.
Antibacterial scrubs are best for the medical workplace because it helps maintain high sanitation levels even after hours into a shift. Antibacterial scrubs kill the bacteria that comes in with sick patients who might cough, sneeze or otherwise come in contact with the medical professional. By killing the bacteria early, the scrubs prevent medical professionals and the next patient from catching the same sickness.
Beyond functionality, men also must consider the look of the scrubs.
Designer mens scrubs are made from the top medical scrub designers for comfort and style. Designer mens scrubs have comfortable and appealing cuts to make the outfit ideal look professional. This look of professionalism that also subtly displays quality can help set patient minds at ease and keep the medical professional comfortable throughout the day.
The search for appropriate medical attire starts and stops with scrubs. Doctors, nurses and other professionals in the medical field wear these comfortable outfits to get through long shifts in comfort. Having scrubs that are made from top designers and which help kill bacteria simply makes the uniform a multipurpose outfit.
IN 2007, Kurt Edwards figured he would be stacking and racking 80-pound boxes of dog food and celery in the back of a grocery store for the rest of his working life. And he was fine with that.
But that June, after nine years on the job, layoff notices arrived on the warehouse floor at the Farmer Jack store in Detroit where he worked. His employer, Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, closed the Farmer Jack chain. Today he still does a lot of lifting, but of people, not boxes. Mr. Edwards joined the ranks of former warehouse, factory and autoworkers trading in their coveralls and job uncertainty for nurses’ scrubs.
