What are medical scrubs?
Medical scrubs are protective clothing worn by medical professionals who work with patients in health and care settings. Medical scrubs are used for sanitary purposes, as they block bodily fluids, germs and chemicals from the medical worker’s skin, which allows them to work safely.
Originally only doctors and nurses wore medical scrubs, however the usage has extended to other professionals like vets, midwives and nursing home workers.
Scrubs were introduced to hospitals in the aftermath of the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1918, as people became more aware of how illnesses spread and how protecting ourselves with materials can stop the spread of illness. The first scrubs that were used were white to represent ‘purity’ but now scrubs of all colours can be bought.
Who are medical scrubs suitable for?
Medical scrubs are suitable for all health, care and dental workers. They provide protection whilst working with patients. Also, scrubs allow the public to easily identify what someone’s occupation is, which is extremely important in the case of an emergency. Medical scrubs are easier to move in than other types of clothing as they are loose fitting.
What type of scrubs do you stock?
We sell different types of scrubs in male, female and unisex sizes. The sizing we provide is diverse as we go from a 2XS to a 5XL, as well as fitting preferences like petite, tall and regular. We offer tunics, trousers and tops. There are different brands you can choose from such as Alsico, Key Scrubs, Tulip and many more.
Furthermore, the scrubs that we sell come in a variety of materials, we sell polyester scrubs or if you are looking for an environmentally friendly option we offer a blend of materials for the scrubs.
In addition, we offer embroidery on the scrubs we sell, so if you would like to add text (e.g. the name of the hospital you work at) or a logo you can. You can choose where you would like it to be positioned and what colour you would like it to be. You can embroidery as an option as you are checking out. Embroidery is only a small additional fee.
You will be able to find scrubs to fit your budget and sizing and colour preferences on our website.
What colour scrubs do you sell?
We offer medical scrubs in the colours: black, blue, green, grey, navy, orange, pink, red and white.
Different healthcare departments usually wear different colours so they can easily identify where each worker operates. Typically, doctors will wear dark blue/navy scrubs, nurses will wear light blue scrubs and nursing assistants will wear lilac scrubs. Each department will ask their staff to wear a different colour.
