    Uniform color by discipline

    My job did the name tag thing with the RN's and it didn't work so we went to designated uniforms but the RN's still wear the "RN" tag.

    Probably cultural because everyone else has differing opinions but thats ok. It makes us unique but thanks for the comment anyway.

    Pinning up long hair

    I saw a psych patient grab a girl by her pony tail at work. Thank goodness she had a pony tail, if she had long hair hanging it would be much harder to get away. We have been taught how to get the patient away from a pony tail but with long hair I forsee a situation where you get the patient to let go of a portion of your hair only to grab another handful. It is much easier to be safe and wear it up then to be sorry when put into a bad situation. People can be unpredictable.

    I agree. If someone has shoulder length hair, it would be hard to pin up but if the hair stays out of the sterile field and out of the face then its fine.

    Wearing jewelry can be an issue as well. I couldn't imagine having an earring pulled out or being trapped by a necklace. Yikes!

    Uniform color by discipline

    If we were taking a vote, I would say that the majority favors distinctive colors for each department. I didn't want to make the change but when the hospital implemented it, I like it now. It does make it easier to determine who is who and the patient's seem to like it too. In the end the patient's opinion matters the most.

    Uniform color by discipline

    I agree. I have a closet full of scrubs I don't wear anymore but I personally like the idea now. I wasn't so fond of it at first but it is easier to identify disciplines by color.

    Where I work, nurses, cna's, lab, x-ray, housekeeping wear a distinctive color for that department so that patient's can decipher who is who. Some people think this takes away our freedom to choose what we can wear and few I have spoke with like the idea. What do you think?

    Pinning up long hair

    I am wondering what everyone's opinion is about wearing long hair down in the work place as an RN. I work at a hospital and I see this with alot of the RN's and I think its a safety hazard to our patients because nurses do sterile procedures and work with food, not to mention a combative patient could grab hair.
