If you have friends and family members entering the medical profession, you know that working in medicine is kind of a many-edged sword. On the one hand, whether you are starting out as a nurse, an assistant, or an fully-fledged medical doctor, it is never an easy or stress free job to work in a clinic or hospital. On the other hand, of course, the pay is good, the work about as reliable as in any field, and it’s a job that many people find engaging and fulfilling. How many of us get to help people for a living?
However, back on the down side of things, there are the clothes. Let’s face it, most medical scrubs are drab, even ugly, and maybe a bit off-putting for patients. They’re certainly not often anyone’s idea of fun. The good news is that all kinds of folks in the healthcare field can turn to a site like www.scrubsgallery.com where a wide variety of medical scrubs are available for discount prices. Yes, these kind of online stores have the more traditional gray or khaki colored clothing and the obligatory white lab coats, but for those who work at offices with more flexible dress codes there are a great number of colorful, cheer inducing blouses, shirts, and pants for female and male medical professionals alike.
Of course, not all medical offices and clinics will permit some of the imaginative designs in the field, but I really hope more bosses start allowing their employees to wear the brighter and more imaginative designs. Certainly, as a patient, I’m rarely happy to have to go to the doctor’s office and it doesn’t help that the surroundings tend to be so unrelentingly gray. Seeing some more brightly colored and imaginatively designed medical scrubs might make me feel just a little bit better about having to be there.
