Hospital Scrubs by Advance Design

The new almost universal standard in hospital attire is hospital scrubs, even for workers who never set foot inside an operating theatre.

Once only used by surgical staff (which is why they’re called “scrubs” because they’re worn by people who have to “scrub in”), scrubs are now worn in many hospitals by everyone from surgeons to janitors.

This craze for wearing hospital scrubs in Australia can perhaps be traced to their popularisation in American TV shows. It’s also possibly because scrubs are versatile garments that are easy to care for and relatively inexpensive compared to other uniform items.

Because patients now accept the appearance of non-surgical staff wearing scrubs as normal, and maybe even expected, you may be considering buying scrubs for your hospital as a standard and consistent uniform.

Plenty of options

Medical scrubs are available in an assortment of different styles and colours. Many hospitals elect to use colour coding to identify an individual’s job role or department. The brightest colours are often reserved for children’s wards, as research indicates children and parents have a preference for bright colours.

More than just clothing

The most important purpose of uniforms in the hospital environment, apart from making it easier to identify which people in the vicinity are staff, is that it helps reassure patients in the ability and professionalism of the staff.

While in reality a uniform is just that and nothing more, patients see a much deeper message behind what the uniform represents to them. This state of mind is beneficial to you as a healthcare provider and beneficial to the patient as well.

By allowing the patient to have more faith in the healthcare provider, the uniform has a positive effect in reducing anxiety.

The Advance Design difference

Australia’s top provider of hospital scrubs online is Advance Design. We lead the way in manufacturing, supplying and selling quality uniform apparel, including a wide range of scrubs for sale. By partnering with the Number 1 US scrubs brand sharing the Grey’s Anatomy scrubs with Australia, Advance Design are leading the apparel industry with premium hospital scrubs.

The secret behind the success of Advance Design is that we understand perfectly what medical industry professionals need when it comes to scrubs clothing. This is how we are able to supply scrub uniforms that have the most advanced textile technology you will find in any scrubs online in Australia.

Some reasons to buy scrubs from Advance Design include:

  • Designed for easy cleaning – you already know the huge diversity of substance that can splash on scrubs during a normal work day. Our textile technology is designed so you can simply wipe off minor spills, while more in-depth spillage can be washed out easily. Result: you never have to scrub your scrubs.
  • Absorbs without saturating – the various body fluids that might get on your scrubs as you work can be a concern, but scrubs from Advance Design are made from quality material that fluids don’t readily soak through to the skin.
  • Non-restrictive garments – light weight and offering complete freedom of movement, our scrubs are designed to be easy and comfortable to wear.
  • Durable – designed for heavy duty use in a busy hospital environment, these scrubs can stand up to a lot of punishment.
  • Stylish – incorporating an appealing visual design is an important step in developing scrubs for a modern hospital
  • Affordable – even though they’re the best quality scrubs for sale, the prices are totally realistic, so your finance team will be just as happy about them as your medical teams are

Advance Design is the easiest choice you’ll ever make, with the most premium collection of scrubs online. We have made it as easy as possible to select and buy scrubs for your hospital.

The process of making that choice is the vital step. When you choose Advance Design you know you are getting:

We have been in business for over 50 years, always striving to maintain our position as the top Australian manufacturer and supplier of hospital uniforms and scrubs. We have never wavered from our task, and the same high standards have been continuously part of our business philosophy and methodology for half a century.

Savvy hospitals put their trust in Advance Design because of our reputation for always delivering high quality products that are beyond the scope of competitors.

Notable factors for children’s hospitals

The choice of scrubs is never more important than when making a decision for personnel who are primarily responsible for children’s health care.

Multiple research projects, including in situ experimental scenarios, have found that children can benefit considerably when the personnel who work with them are attired in multi-coloured uniforms.

These studies found that the colours and patterns are helpful in distracting attention away from the more unpleasant aspects of medical treatments, and can help to calm anxiety in paediatric patients.

One of the very notable things about it is that anxiety in children can be contagious. If one child reacts with severe exaggeration, almost every child on the ward will be that much more stressed out while waiting for their own procedures to take place.

A point that any buyer of hospital uniforms would do well to consider is that you need to weigh up the benefits of providing the ultimate in selection for children and weigh this up against the more drab and formal expectations parents may have.

Most parents do, however, seem to appreciate hospitals that go to extra lengths to create a brighter and more positive atmosphere for children.

One of the studies (Campbell et al, 2000) found that the more formal aspects associated with hospital attire – the perception of an authority figure, for example – was less of a consideration for families when offset against features such as approachability and openness.

The study concluded that a multi-coloured or themed uniform might improve the communication potential between families and medical staff.

We would suggest that every hospital that has a dedicated children’s ward should at least give it a try. Feedback from nurses generally indicates a positive response in terms of how patients react.
