12 Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Medical Attire for your Practice

In a study published in the BMJ open, consisting of 4062 patients on their preference for physician attire: 

“Of the 4062 patient responses, 53% indicated that physician attire was essential to them during care. Over one-third agreed that it influenced their satisfaction with care. Compared with all other forms of attire, formal attire with a white coat was most highly rated.

Important differences in preferences for attire by clinical context and respondent characteristics were noted. For example, respondents over 65 preferred formal attire with white coats, while scrubs were most preferred for surgeons.”

3 areas to consider when choosing medical attire for your practice: 

  1. The Fabric: high-quality fabric is essential as the medical attire is the first line of protection against the bacteria and microbes that your physicians and nurses are exposed to daily. High-quality material will be durable and keep its fit and color for long periods. 
  2. The Fit: Your staff’s medical attire must be fitted, not tight or loose, but fitted enough to allow for comfortable movements while also looking put together. 
  3. The style: Style is a personal choice; one thing to do is give your staff a couple of uniforms they can wear and layer to stand out individually while having a cohesive look. 

Here at Unidress Uniform, we offer a variety of medical attires made from various high-quality materials, available in different colors, sizes, and styles, so you can have the freedom to choose. 

Here are 12 points to guide you through: 

  • Consider your staff’s different job roles: The medical uniform you choose should support and be appropriate for their job roles. We have accounted for that in our Unidress Uniform medical attire lines. 
  • Consider the type of medical facility of your practice: The medical uniform you choose should also be appropriate to your medical facility’s type.
  • Consider your staff’s personal preferences: They will be wearing your uniform for long hours, so it’s essential to choose something that they’ll feel comfortable in, and that suits their style.
