Does anyone know of a website that has printed tops with newborns, birth weights, storks, baby disney etc. on them? I work in nicu so anything baby-related would work & I won't look like I'm a walking 2 year old...unless I go to the grocery after work... Any suggestions would help. Thanks:roll

that's so impressive that you make your own scrubs
. Do you have a certain pattern you use and if so, how hard/easy is it to do? Thanks, Steph

intensivewear.com has awsome scrub tops for NICU! They have a ton of stuff with little hands and feet.

I went to intensivewear.com, and they do have cute stuff! I love the little footprint lanyard for holding my name badge...I might have to order it. I like the scrubs, too. Thank you!

I was suprised to read this thread and see that nurses get to wear their own scrubs to a nicu. The couple hospital nicus I have been in provide srubs for nicu nurses so that we always have clean scrubs available and don't bring in germs outside the unit. I this unusual?

It seems to be half and half.
I worked as a CNA at a children's hospital and everyone wore their own scrubs. However, since there was no L&D there and babies were transported from outside hopsitals, it wasn't considered to be a "clean" unit.
Where I work now we are provided with scrubs. Makes it much easier to run into to a crash c-section! We wear white lab coats when leaving the unit, and can wear our own cute scrub jackets for warmth while on the unit - though we have to take them off for patient care. If we go out on a transport, we must change into our own scrubs and then change back into hospital scrubs when we return from the transport.

We wear our own scrubs in the NICU. Our hospital recently had a complete overhaul of the dress code (something about how the patients couldn't tell who their nurses were - duh?
) - Anyway, to my knowledge, the only departments that have scrubs provided for them are L&D, OR, and Cardiac Cath labs.
I too have wondered about the wisdom of bringing in our own "critters" on personal scrubs. We always provide a barrier when holding an infant (clean blanket or clean isolation gown), but still.....

Some of their prints are great for NICU - tiny hands, tiny feet, antique rattles, etc. Plus some of them are made in FLANNEL and it's so cozy!!!
BUT beware of two things when ordering:
1. It takes 2-3 weeks to get your stuff because they sew each order as it's recieved.
2. The scrubs are HUGE!!! The site warns you about this and even gives measurements but I still ended up with a huge scrub coat! Order 1-2 sizes smaller than usual, and if you are short, spend $5 to get the petite length. I had to send mine back and get it taken in and shortened because it went down to my knees. BUT they were very understanding about the situation.

I tried to go to intensivewear.com and it doesn't send me to a site. Any suggestions? I work in the OB department in Pella and would LOVE to have some cute OB/labor/delivery scrubs.

This thread is over eight years old so it's probable that the site doesn't exist anymore.
