  3. ER Patients

  4. Uniforms.. color scrubs vs whites

    just a few points: 1: we are a proffessional body. they traditional white uniform, while looking smart, conjures up the nurses role of yesteryear, while as fabulous as they were, were not the clinicians we are today. people remember this. the subserv...
