The Scrubs Revolution: How Designer Scrubs Made it Chic - Articles Surfing

Just like everything else in this universe the medical profession has also evolved as time has gone by. And this evolution is not just in terms of the facilities and knowledge but also in terms of the medical uniforms worn by the medical practitioners. The latest development is seen now in the 21st century. Now with the amazing progress in the medical field, how can the medical scrub be left behind? The most colorful, designer and stylish hygienic medical uniforms have been developed.

First the hospital uniforms consisted of a butcher's apron but now medical scrubs are used which are an integral part of the medical uniform. The old aprons have given way to medical uniforms consisting of nursing scrubs and the scrub hats, which are now available in a wide array of colors or designs.

Earlier, all the medical staff used button-down white garments, which kind of gave the medical field an identity. This was in the earlier 20th century. The garments were not thoughtfully made as they were not made out of hygienic materials. On the other hand, the medical scrubs available now are extremely hygienic and safe.

The main reason for this is that the medical field was not as advanced as it is now. The practitioners did not have adequate knowledge of the spread of diseases or the need for sanitation. They had this idea that germs spread spontaneously and were not aware of the spread of germs due to unhygienic conditions. That is why; sanitation was not given much importance. There were times when doctors would roam around the hospitals wearing the same apron they would for all the surgeries which would suggest the surgeon to be very busy and a prominent personality in that hospital. The blood and body fluids on the apron led to the spread of infections. Eventually this was the cause for the high mortality rate in those times

Now the times have drastically changed with everyone very health conscious and also conscious about cleanliness. So trendy drawstring pants with a pullover top or mandarin collar tops have replaced the old apron. The customary front or back-buttoned nursing scrubs are now a thing of the past. They are replaced by fresh and hygienic scrubs, which are extremely comfortable and easy to use.

The newly styled medical scrubs made all types of patients more comfortable and at ease as it bought colors, designs and even cartoons characters creating a jovial and a fun loving atmosphere Although scrubs started out in white color, as white gives out the message of being pure, hygienic and clean. But white is very easy to get soiled and soon it gets a ragged look. They also cause a strain on the eyes under the bright lights in the hospital rooms. That is why, white colored uniforms have been phased out and in their place green or other color scrubs have been made available. The material now used to manufacture these colorful scrubs is a blend of cotton and polyester because this material is comfortable and odor-resistant.

So now scrubs are made available in a variety of colors and shades. For the nurses and doctors working in the childcare and pediatric ward, there are scrubs available with cartoon characters or floral designs. These medical uniforms make the medical practitioners look friendlier and create an atmosphere of fun and happiness.

Now again the best place to find a variety of poly-cotton scrubs is the Internet. You can get a wide variety of prices as well as colors. And you can always compare prices of these items available and pick out what suits your pocket. But just be sure to ensure that you are buying from an authentic company and not being duped. Also be sure to see that the companies have return policies. Most of the sites on the Internet will be offering discounts if you make a wholesale purchase of hospital uniforms. Here is an example to give you an idea regarding the prices. If the price of a solid dye scrub is in the range of $15 then it is possible to get it at a cheaper price of around $10 if it is bought in wholesale. There also various payment and shipping options available with return policies and discounts. So all you now have to do is choose the medical scrubs which you like among the available deigns, colors and patterns, and you would also need to check with the hospital authorities so that they permit you to wear these trendy scrubs. You'll definitely have something that you would look forward to wearing to work everyday.
