Where I can found Cheap Nursing Apparel?

Posted by Nahid
[display_name id=”1″]Usually uniform shops have basic unisex scrubs they sell but they also sell more expensive items.
Selling nursing scrubs?The company i work for is changing our uniform. Normally as long as we had scrubs that was all we needed. Now were changing to a specific color, which i have none of, but i digress. Is there an online site that specializes in selling nursing scrubs? I know about ebay and amazon, but i wanted one thats really only for nursing personel.

[display_name id=”1″]I have found buying scrubs online much cheaper than Wal-Mart, and with a better selection. I get all my scrubs at Tafford – if you sign up for their email list, they often have free shipping specials and their scrubs are the best!Their solid scrubs come in tons of colors, so they will probably meet your new uniform requirement. Check out their solid scrubs here:

Give them a try, you wont be disappointed.

Good luck!

Nurse kit?Does anyone know a few brands that are pretty good quality but won’t break the bank? I’m interested in purchasing a nurse kit ( ~$60), but i want some quality stuff. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

[display_name id=”1″]Personally I dont recommend the nurse kits…Generally they have GENERIC tools which are a piece of crap…

I recommend that you figure out which items you really need and purchase seperately…

1. Stethoscope – you want a good one that you will be able to accurately hear the sounds with… Also one that is going to “feel” comfortable for you… Littman is usually the most popular as it good quality. Your stethoscope will be your best investment… So dont skimp on this!

2. Watch – having a big dial with a RED second had helps to see it better… Avoid the kind that hang from a lanyard as those can pick up pathogens when it dangles over the pt and that is an infection control “no-no”… Some new watches are coming out with plastic/rubbery type of band which can be cleaned with a disinfectant.

3. BP cuff – avoid this as most hospitals have a BP cuff on the wall for each and every bedside…. Only time you need this is if you are a home health nurse… But most agencies still provide them to the employees.

4. Scissors – you can pick up good bandage scissors for about $6 – $ 7 at any nurse uniform store or online… Dont spend alot of money here… Because you will constantly misplace them and other co-workers may “borrow” them and never return them… I am on my 5’th pair in 1 year.

5. Hemostats – looks like a pair of scissors but it doesn’t cut… It clamps down… Good for flushing foley’s and holding onto slippery things…. These are cheap too… About $5

6. Penlight – for assessing pupils and neuro checks… You can buy one really cheap about $7 or just wait until the hospital gives you one for FREE! Alot of pharmaceutical reps give them out for free as well…

7. Tape measure – for measuring girths and wounds… Also you can get for FREE from the hospital or from a pharm rep. I have 3 or 4 of them laying around.

8. EKG calipers – Only needed if you are gonna work on a Tele floor… Otherwise it’s a waste of money. They are cheap though… About $3- $5 or the hospital will supply you.

9. Skin markers – to mark the operative location on your pre-op patients… Usually the hospital provides these free.

10. Badge Holder – dont buy this… Hospitals give em away for free all the time!

That’s all ya need…. Anything else will be provided by the employer…. Good luck!

Which uniform website is the best?I need some new scrubs…which websites would you recommend or not recommend?Im hoping cheap prices and a website that is not misleading, I am mainly interested in Dickies.

I was going to order from Uniform City, but wanted to check around before I buy.

Questions and Answers

Online shopping for scrubs?I love to shop online and I recently got a new job… I was looking for some good websites that sell scrubs. I have found a few, Uniform Advantage, Allheart, & Scrub shopper. I was just wondering if there are any others that anyone might recommend. Thanks so much!

Posted by Bobby
[display_name id=”1″]By far my favorite is tafford.com. I love the Tafford brand of scrubs, plus they now carry many of the national brands such as Koi, Grey’s Anatomy, Landau, Barco etc. Their service is amazing and you won’t believe the prices of the Tafford scrubs.

Check them out, you won’t be disappointed.

Good luck!!!

My Koi Pond Water Has Turned To Sewage Water, Please Help?!?!?All the data I can give.
I have the Laguna Clear-Flo Pump & Filter Kit and it is rated I believe its about 200 gallons larger than my pond size. I have liner not cement. I have about 7 baby koi, 2 big ones that were donated to me (now dead), 3 bull frog tadpoles, 5 baby goldfish. (My pond isn’t small, not huge, I guess we can call it decently sized. I have a circle shape pond with the center being a depth of 4 1/2 feet, where the submersible pump sits. The water was crystal clear until about a couple days ago, when it started getting murky, but it had been pretty much monsooning outside so i figured it was due to the rain… Then it started to smell, like a sewage type smell. Then I opened up the filter to check it out and it was like i opened a backed up toilet. I didn’t buy new pads, but i cleaned them out with a hose and spend about an hour on it and had the pads like new. So I called my “expect” friend and he told me that I need more oxygen, so i went out to pet co (where the pets go) and got a bunch of the pretty big air pump things with the bubble wands. Threw them at various places in the pond, over night it still was the same so I decided not to wait any longer and put the fish into a blow up pool i bought at kmart and drained the pond. It was like a backed up tiolet. It stinks.
It is true that my return on my pump wasnt exactly good, but they seemed fine for like a month. So I and my friend thought they would be fine. I have currently order a bunch of bog plants, oxygenator plants, and top water plants. I plan to clean up all the stuff off the bottom and get the liner as clean as possible. The pump, filter and koi pond is about 2 months old. I live right by the beach and was thinking of putting sand at the bottom of the pond, so that when it is clear again it shows a nice contrast rather than the black. Help me yahoo community, your my only hope. (since the expect store place is unreliable to answer any of my questions). Brocks farms in Colts Neck for the shout out you d- bags.

[display_name id=”1″]Don’t use beach sand – too many micro-organisms that are not compatible with happy, healthy koi. If you want a sand bottom, use aquarium-grade sand.

Second, your pond has to “cycle” – here is a link that explains it ( Http://www.pondhobbyist.com/articles/Nit… ) but basically, fish poop, uneaten food, and other organic matter decomposes and creates ammonia, which is very toxic to fish. Luckily, little bacteria come along and convert the amonia to nitrites. Unfortunately, nitrites are also very toxic to fish. But, there are other little bacteria that convert the nitrites into nitrates. Nitrates are still harmful, but not as bad, for fish.

The good part, though, is that plants *love* nitrates! All those oxygenators and stuff that you are getting will help “scrub” the nitrates out of the water, and in the process will grow lush and green.

But, when you first start up a pond, it takes a while for the bacterial colonies to grow large enough to deal with the amount of waste produced, and for the actual conversion process to take place. And by a while, I mean a good 4 to 6 – maybe even 8 weeks. You shouldn’t alter your pond’s ecosystem during this time period by adding fish or draining water or scrubbing the liner or anything, because it will just delay your pond’s cycling through these processes on it’s way to becoming balanced. A partial water change of 20-30% should be all you’d ever need to do – and usually only about 10-20% (always fill with dechlorinated tap water – irrigation water has all kinds of little critters that koi are not bred to withstand…).

During the cycling process, you will first see an ammonia spike, then a nitrite spike, and finally a nitrate spike (invest in a good testing kit -available at most decent pet stores). Once your nitrates have leveled off and been stable for a while, then you can introduce your fish.

Speaking of which, you have WAY too many. I don’t know how many gallons your pond has, but without some *serious* filtration, all those fish and tadpoles and everything else are just putting, quite frankly, a bunch of poop in your pond. There is no way enough bacteria can colonize, nor plants can absorb, the amount of ammonia-nitrites-nitrates that many fish will pump out. Each goldfish should have at least 10 gallons, and each koi 100+. All the tadpoles, etc., just add ammonia without (in my mind) contributing much else.

Bad news: your blow-up pool will have the same thing happen to it, eventually, unless you cycle it, too.

And finally, may I suggest adding a veggie filter? They are the best for most closely mirroring a natural ecosystem: Http://www.bonniesplants.com/how_to/vegg… .

I hope this helps – good luck!

Questions and Answers

Where is the best place on-line to buy scrubs (nursing uniforms) and why?

Posted by Fred S

[display_name id=”1″]I get all my scrubs at Tafford – their quality is better than most of the brands you can get at those other stores, for much less. Plus they have great email deals with additional discounts and free shipping!Once I started shopping at Tafford, I started throwing away all the other scrubs catalogs and emails. Give them a shot!

If you really need Cherokee scrubs (for Tooniforms, sports teams logos, baby phat, etc), check out bestofscrubs.com – they have free shipping on every order, just like Zappos and their selection is enormous…

What are some stylish yet affordable women’s scrubs?I know women’s scrubs aren’t all that stylish, but I want something that doesn’t make me look like I have a diaper bottom. Also something that doesn’t make me look like I have no curves to my body. I want something that is a longer top, form fitting but very flexible. I’m 5’6″ thin and curvy.. Help me!
