Geisinger changing uniforms for nurses

Share this:




Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger Health System is changing its uniform policy to ensure that patients can  quickly and easily identify registered nurses and other healthcare workers.

The Daily Item reports that the changes will start with  registered nurses but Geisinger will eventually also develop uniform policies for physicians and other healthcare workers.

As of  Jan. 1, all registered nurses in Geisinger’s eight hospitals, clinics and nursing homes  will wear the same color scrubs — pewter — with a sewn Geisinger logo and a name tag with “Registered Nurse” spelled out.

Geisinger officials told The Daily Item the name badges currently identify the employee as an “R.N.” or some other initials signifying their position, but patients don’t always know what the initials mean.
