The other day, a friend of mine (who is an RN) was telling me about her daily dilemma: what should she wear to protect herself from the chilly hospital air conditioning?
The main obstacle for her is the fact that she is required to wear her iD badge at all times, but when she attached it to her scrubs it wasn’t visible once she put on her jacket or sweater. She had tried fleeces and hoodies and they kept her pretty warm, but there wasn’t any place to put her badge except the collar (scratching against her neck all day) or the zippered lining (which meant she couldn’t zip it up).
ID badges are a common but annoying requirement at most hospitals and unless you have a pocket on your top, there’s really nowhere convenient to attach it. Until now…
Scrubs and lab coats company Medelita is well known for their flattering designs, performance fabrics, and innovative features. They released their brand new women’s scrub jacket a few months ago, and not only does it have ample pocket space (and a zippered sleeve pocket to boot!), they also added a small but kind of life-changing feature: the ID badge pocket.
The Ionic Scrub Jacket is the first of its kind in many ways, but I particularly l particularly love this badge pocket. It’s hidden on the left shoulder seam so that it’s invisible when you’r not using it, and it allows you to clip your badge onto your jacket.
