Do you think this is fair, the hospital sends everyone a questionaire and asks if anyone wants to change their uniform colors? Certain units have to wear certain colors. Everyone votes no. Later we are informed our colors would be changed to solid colors, because all the hospitals are doing it. Our unit is a nursing home and rehab unit and they want to make it more like a home for them. They love our decorated tops and now we have to wear plain old purple and we have to purchase these ourselves!!!

  • I agree that it was stupid for them to even ask, if they were going to change it anyway. What's more stupid is that you have to pay for the new uniforms! My hospital just went to color-coded scrubs in October, but we were given our scrubs. Full-timers got 4 sets of scrubs and part-timers got 2 sets... all paid for by the hospital. I think that's only fair. If they're going to make you wear a certain uniform, they should at least pay for part of it!

  • It bites, but maybe you can dress them up with pins and such?

  • I agree with Dahis- or maybe you can be a rebel with different colored shoes or socks, or wear a neat long sleeved tee under it? In my life I've come up with millions of ways to be a rebel while wearing a uniform :)
