No matter how tidy your nursing staff is, at the end of the day, it just can’t be helped: Nursing is messy.

It’s pretty likely your nurse’s scrubs will need a good scrubbing at the end of a long shift!

The last thing you want your nurses wearing s is a garment crawling with potential disease! Not only is it unhealthy for your staff and your patience, but you’re facility may be at risk for following out of AORN compliance. This fact makes proper scrub care all the more important.

It’s a little-known fact, but this time of year is infamous for employee turnover. Because we associate the launch of the school year with new beginnings, many employees see this as a prime time to give their two-weeks notice.

We all know the various costs and headaches associated with employee turnover – recruiting and training costs, and negotiating salaries can cause a cosmic shift on your balance sheet. So what steps can you take TODAY to keep the All-Stars on your team?

Your employee retention strategy should be in effect from Day One – but there are definitely some quick pick-me-ups you can offer your employees to keep them happy. Here are 6 tips that you can implement to keep employees feeling valued, appreciated, and excited to stick with your team!

1: Entrust your employees with important decisions.

By showing your workers that you trust them to make educated, smart choices, it empowers them and breeds trust and goodwill.

2: Let employees reward each other.

Create a program where employees can reward one another, either with compliments or physical rewards. This creates a real team-player vibe and helps build solid connections between coworkers.

3: Show intention, interest, and empathy.

Bosses tend to have an aura of inaccessibility around them. Bond with employees by showing interest in their opinions, exhibiting intention when you speak with them, and empathizing with their concerns, whether personal or professional.  

4: Employee bonding events.

These don’t have to be costly, all-out affairs: a simple movie night will do the trick. Bonding in a non-corporate setting is super-important when building a team that employees want to stick with.

5: Take care of their needs.

Feeling taken care of and secure is like glue for employee retention. We stress this a lot with our iVendTech customers: by providing an office supplies vending machine, you’re not just monitoring your inventory effectively, you’re showing your employees you want them to succeed.

6: REWARDS.

Of course, no one is going to turn down a bonus or some other thoughtful gift! Gift cards, cool gadgets, or even days off are great incentives that keep employees coming back for more – and performing at their best!

Being knowledgeable about the sanitation of your scrubs, and taking preventative measures for scrub cleanliness is key to avoiding the spread of harmful bacteria and viruses.

In a study conducted by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) stated more than 60% of uniforms worn by nurses and doctors who work in hospitals tested positive for dangerous bacteria.

To combat pesky bacteria, we’ve gathered a few sanitation strategies that will help keep these germs at bay:

Store your scrubs properly.

When you’re leaving the doctor’s office or hospital, take a moment to change into your normal attire. Remove your scrubs and place them in a sealable plastic bag, a large ziplock bag that can be reused is the way to go. This prevents people in your commute home from being exposed to the bacteria that is hanging out on your scrubs.

Consider getting a ScrubTrak dispenser for your medical facility.

Hospital grade laundering services provides a thorough, cleaning process that cannot be replicated in home washing machines and ensures scrubs are rid of infectious germs. Through automating the process for receiving and returning scrubs, ScrubTrak assists hospitals in complying with AORN’s recommendation for surgical attire to be laundered by a healthcare laundry facility to avoid the spread of infectious bacteria on scrubs of medical personnel who have patient interaction. By offering dispensing and return units for scrubs, and monitoring compliance through our real-time software system, hospital administrators can confidently comply with AORN. In addition, ScrubTrak’s return units allow for convenient and safe scrub pick-up by laundering staff.

Wash after every wear.

Although your scrubs may seem clean, perhaps you only worked a 4 hour shift; regardless, your scrubs need to be washed with hot water after every single wear. It is not a matter of personal hygiene, rather about the prevention of nasty bacteria and viruses.

For hospital and medical facility managers, we highly recommend that you check out the ScrubTrak site and features.

“The report tells me what I need to know, how many are expiring, where they are located and the name of the medication. I really like that I can run the report for 90 or more days because I order replacement medications 3-4 months in advance, plus my regular stock… so I know I won’t run out. Now instead of having to do a count by hand at the end of the month or so I check them in when I receive them and simply run the reports I need.”

There is little debate about the dangers in-hospital infections pose to patients. The mechanics of managing these infections have evolved greatly from the time when doctors didn’t even consider it necessary to wash their hands when moving from patient to patient. With advances in modern hygiene and medicine, health care professionals are now focusing on one of the last bastions of contagion: improperly managed scrub uniforms worn by hospital staff.

The concept of wearing scrubs has some clear virtues: they’re easy to launder and also low cost to produce, which means they can easily be disposed of when contaminated. They’re also designed to allow medical care professionals to be easily identified. However, new studies in the US and the UK have shown that these same scrubs intended to reduce transmission of disease, in fact, can pick up and carry infectious agents from room to room or patient to patient. Because nurses and doctors may believe that having only limited contact with a patient does not expose them to disease, they may not be observing the correct level of safety and cleanliness protocols.

ScrubTrak inventory management system provides the ideal solution. Having an easy stock of clean, contagion-free scrubs available at all times to the entire healthcare community encourages medical professionals to change as soon as they have any concern about carrying pathogens. Instead of placing an undue burden on staff to purchase, launder, maintain, and keep track of clean scrubs on a constant basis, having a ScrubTrak vending machine on site shows that the hospital or care center values its employees–and its patient’s well being!

A wake-up call has been rung for healthcare personnel around the world. A Duke Health study reports on the “transmission triangle” in a healthcare setting, between patients, the environment where care is administered, and the health care provider.

The study states that the germs in hospital rooms that come in contact with healthcare personnel can be spread far more than originally discovered.

“Any type of patient care, or even just entry into a room where care is provided, truly should be considered a chance for interacting with organisms that can cause disease.” said Deverick Anderson, M.D., the study’s lead author and associate professor of medicine at Duke University School of Medicine.

During the study, researchers collected cultures from the scrubs of intensive care unit nurses at Duke University Hospital. The samples were collected from new scrubs at the start of their shift, before interacting with a patient, and at the end of each shift.  

Analysis of the cultures found organisms on the nurse’s scrubs that were not present at the beginning of a shift, but were present at the end. The researchers then looked for those same organisms in the samples collected from patients and their rooms.

During the shifts considered, the researchers confirmed 12 instances when at least one of the five pathogens was transmitted from the patient or the room to the scrubs. Six incidents each involved transmission from patient to nurse and room to nurse. An additional ten transmissions were from the patient to the room.

Analysis of the study found the scrubs, particularly the pockets and sleeves, from the nurses were most likely contaminated, and had the ability to pass on bacteria beyond the healthcare setting. Following prevention strategies has to be a top priority for all healthcare personnel.

Contaminated linen, including scrubs and coats, have been identified as a source of large numbers of pathogenic microorganisms. ScrubTrak helps control this risk in healthcare organizations by providing return units in key locations throughout the campus. Having multiple return unit locations ensures that employees do not have to travel far distances in contaminated uniforms.

Hospital grade laundering services provides a thorough, cleaning process that cannot be replicated in home washing machines and ensures scrubs are rid of infectious germs. Through automating the process for receiving and returning scrubs, ScrubTrak assists hospitals in complying with AORN’s recommendation for surgical attire to be laundered by a healthcare laundry facility to avoid the spread of infectious bacteria on scrubs of medical personnel who have patient interaction. By offering dispensing and return units for scrubs, and monitoring compliance through our real-time software system, hospital administrators can confidently comply with AORN. In addition, ScrubTrak’s return units allow for convenient and safe scrub pick-up by laundering staff.

It used to be that the most an office employee could reasonably pilfer would be a few staplers and reams of paper. Maybe a really nice fountain pen. Now, with the influx of high tech gadgetry and peripherals required in nearly every professional setting, the danger of such supplies being stolen has become a serious financial consideration. iVendTech’s inventory management vending machines provide a simple way to stock, track, and account for any manner of office supplies.

The old school technique of keeping one open supply closet with all the requisite tools has disappeared. There is a need to trace each item used–particularly the expensive gadgets–and that requires a new method. Locked closets with a dedicated employee ‘gatekeeper’ only slow down valuable employees with paperwork and bureaucracy.  Using a customized iVendTech system will not only increase employee productivity, but it will also decrease overhead.

Every iVendTech machine comes with online real-time tracking, so management can see how often and how many of each item is actually used. That data can then be used to keep only the stock necessary, whether it’s a specialized tool or merely coffee supplies.

Accepting shrinkage and lost productivity as part of doing business is a thing of the past. Modern solutions, like iVendTech’s inventory management system, will both decrease costs and increase employee efficiency.
