Well, when I took my job I went out and bought all scrubs in the colors we were allowed. Then they removed the dress code and said wear what you like. Then they changed our shoe policy, had to buy new "all white" shoes. Then they realized all white shoes get nasty, back to the old shoe policy. I bought more scrubs since we could wear what we like. Then I bought maternity scrubs. Now we are getting NEW assigned colors. They do not pay for our scrubs. We do not get discounts through any supplier. I have one month to comply and since I am preggers, this means I need more maternity scrubs in the new colors, then I will need regular scrubs in the new colors. I am sick of spending all this money while perfectly good scrubs sit in my closet. Rant over. UGH.
They are doing the exact same thing where I work as part of their rebranding push. Currently it's white tops and navy or white pants only. The new scrubs are totally different colors and all have the hospital logo on the L pocket on the top. They will look sharp even though it's a hassle. They are giving us approx. $150.00 each to buy new things with and the pieces should be heavily discounted because of the quantity the hospital is contracting for.
