What to expect from Harveys scrubs  

medical grade scrubs

We love nothing more than to design and manufacture a wide range of medical grade scrubs and other garments. However, we also love writing about them!

This article is dedicated to what you should expect when you choose us with your healthcare scrubs and uniforms.

We will cover the following topics –

  • Comfort
  • Colour range
  • Service
  • Embroidery
  • Reliability
  • Durability
  • Functionality

Comfort and Mobility

At Harveys, we appreciate that healthcare workers often endure long shifts, sometimes 12 hours or more. Comfort, therefore, is paramount. Medical scrubs and uniforms are designed with loose-fitting, breathable fabric that allows for a full range of motion. This is particularly important for doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers who are constantly on the move, performing a variety of physical tasks. The lightweight material prevents overheating and reduces discomfort, making it easier to focus on patient care.

Colour ranges

Colour choice and freedom are huge aspects with us. We understand the importance of colour on the healthcare professional and the patient. Therefore, ensuring a huge range of colours across our garments is one of our top priorities. Wearing scrubs can have psychological benefits for healthcare professionals. The uniformity and simplicity of scrubs reduce the stress of choosing what to wear each day, allowing workers to focus their mental energy on patient care. Additionally, scrubs can create a sense of unity and camaraderie among healthcare staff, fostering a collaborative and supportive work environment.

Coloured scrubs are an important evolution in medical attire, offering benefits that extend beyond mere aesthetics. They improve role identification, reduce visual strain, minimize cross-contamination, and positively impact patient psychology. Additionally, coloured scrubs enhance professional appearance, prevent monotony, contribute to cost-efficiency, and foster team dynamics. As such, the thoughtful use of coloured scrubs is a practical and effective strategy in modern healthcare settings, enhancing both operational efficiency and the overall patient experience.

Coloured scrubs have become a staple in medical settings, replacing the once standard white uniforms with a vibrant array of hues. This shift from monochrome to multicoloured attire isn’t merely an aesthetic choice; it has practical, psychological, and operational benefits. Here’s an in-depth look at why coloured scrubs are important in healthcare.

Role identification and coordination

In bustling hospitals and clinics, quick identification of healthcare professionals’ roles is crucial. Coloured scrubs provide a visual shorthand for patients and staff to recognize different roles and departments instantly. For example:

Blue or green scrubs: Often worn by surgical teams.

Pink or pastel scrubs: Common in paediatric and maternity wards.

Dark colours: Typically used in emergency departments or intensive care units.

This colour-coding system streamlines communication and coordination, particularly in emergencies where every second counts

Customer service

In the healthcare industry, where every detail can impact the quality of patient care, the importance of quality scrub uniform cannot be overstated. We respect the fact that as a provider of the most essential garments, we play a crucial role in ensuring healthcare professionals are well-equipped to perform their daily, life-saving duties.

This is why our customer service will only ever be considered as the most critical component in the healthcare industry. We strive to ensure that healthcare professionals receive the right fit and comfort, quick problem resolution, and customized solutions to meet specific needs. Reliable customer service also supports inventory management, provides educational guidance, fosters long-term relationships, supports healthcare operations, and positively impacts staff morale. By prioritizing exceptional customer service, we aim to play a vital role in the efficient and effective functioning of healthcare facilities, contributing to better patient care and overall healthcare outcomes

Embroidery and personalisation

As mentioned in our personalising your workwear article we are proud to offer both embroidery and complete personalisation options of every workwear garment. Personalizing scrubs and tunics is becoming increasingly popular among healthcare professionals. This trend goes beyond mere aesthetics, offering a range of practical and psychological benefits that enhance both individual performance and the overall work environment.

Personalizing scrubs offers a host of benefits that go beyond simple aesthetics. It enhances professional identity, improves patient trust, and facilitates efficient team coordination. Personalized scrubs also minimize loss and theft, boost morale, promote brand identity, and reflect personal style. Additionally, they can be used for recognition and awards within healthcare facilities. By embracing the trend of personalized scrubs, healthcare professionals and institutions can enjoy these advantages, leading to a more efficient, professional, and positive work environment.

Reliability and durability

Over centuries, scrubs have become the go-to attire for healthcare professionals due to their reliability and durability. These qualities are essential in the demanding environment of healthcare, where clothing must withstand rigorous conditions and frequent use. Here’s a brief look at why scrubs are considered both reliable and durable:

  • High-quality materials (such as cotton/poly blends)
  • Reinforced seams and stitching
  • Resistance to contaminants and stains (infection control)
  • Enabled frequent washing at high temperatures
  • Colour retention
  • A range of fits and sizes to suit all shapes
  • Comfort and flexibility

At Harvey’s, we are proud to let our clients know that customer service is our top priority. Due to this, we are always on hand to help with any part of the uniform purchasing process. We are also here to help with any after-care questions you may have.
