I'm just starting as a HHA with an agency for the second time...but I got rid of all my scrubs from the first round since they no longer fit me, and its been about a year since I worked as an aide, so I'm in need of some new scrubs.
I have one set that sort of fits from my old collection (the pants are a bit too big, but not big enough to fall down or anything), and I have a pair of wine colored pants which I kept out of my old collection as well because they still fit, then a pair of too small but will do for now pair of pants, and 2 tops "rented" from my agency.
I'm going to be working 4-6 days a week since it's M-TH and every other weekend, so obviously I can't have just 3 sets of scrubs, although it seems that I won't generally be doing to do much "dirty work" due to the nature of the house, the residents, and the fact that I'll be working the evening shift. But I'm wondering, how many sets do I actually need? Five? Six? I don't want to be doing laundry weekly, so as I gather up more money I'll get more scrubs, but this is to start out with.
The other thing is I'm wondering how to wear my name tags. I've never had 2 before, just 1...but with this agency you have the regular one with a picture, the agency name and your title, plus a plain one with just your name printed large and in black. Is there any special way of wearing two, or just clip them separately?
