From high-end private clinics to general hospitals, health-care professionals need uniforms that help represent their position. Uniforms lend gravitas and authority to professionals and inform patients that the person they are working with is a trained professional. Uniforms help identify a lay man apart from staff which makes it easy to differentiate between a care giver and a care taker. We all expect medical practitioners to look confident and trustworthy and a uniform plays a huge role in communicating the same message.
Nurses and care staff too need uniforms. It is important that they wear scrubs offered by the clinic/hospital since they are bound to be dealing with all kinds of wastes/matters in their day to day professional life. Scrubs are made from certain fabrics that allow them to be cleaned easily and professionally which is an additional benefit since its extremely important to maintain hygiene levels in clinics and hospitals.
