The white lab coat is ubiquitous with the medical field and scientists. We have seen how using a uniform service benefits companies and their employees. There are also clear benefits to using a uniform lab coat in your medical facility, but the question may arise whether to purchase the uniforms outright or to rent them. Here are some reasons why you should consider renting your lab coats.
Stains and Holes Do More than Just Look Bad
Doctors’ lab coats are subject to all kinds of stains. Blood, bodily fluids, and other liquids can create deep stains on a lab coat that are incredibly difficult to remove. These stains may make a doctor look contaminated and unclean, making patients uneasy in their presence. In addition, many doctors work with sharp implements every day, and these can snag onto threads to rip holes in a lab coat. Often, the constant jostling of these instruments in the pockets will render the pockets unusable in a short time. Lab coats which are stained and/or riddled with holes will not reflect well upon your facility.
Doctors who own their own lab coats find themselves constantly laundering them to preserve their clean appearance. However, this may subject the lab coats to shrinking, which may make doctors appear unprofessional to their patients.
The Buttons Fall Off
Lab coats have plenty of buttons which allow the coat to be closed and which protect the civilian clothes underneath from the stains and other perils of a medical facility. But these buttons will eventually fall off, and then the doctor and his clothes will be in danger.
Renting Lab Coats – Peace of Mind
When you rent lab coats for your medical facility, you can rest easy. Doctors are able to use a freshly cleaned lab coat every day. They do not need to worry about the upkeep of their own lab coats, intermittent replacement costs, or giving an appearance of unprofessionalism. In turn, patients will feel more at ease and perceive that they are receiving the best quality of care that your doctors can provide.
