Three Simple Steps to Keep Your Scrubs Like New

by on October 13th, 2014 in Healthcare Careers Medical Assistant Medical Assistant Job Training Medical Assistant Training Pharmacy Tech Training

3 tips on keeping your scrubs look newYou’ve completed your MA or PT training, and you’ve scored the job you’ve always wanted – so, now you get to wear scrubs almost every day of the week. You know that it’s important to keep your scrubs looking new, but are you really sure how to do it?

Follow these three tips below to keep your scrubs looking as new as the day you brought them home!

1. Wash…Then Wear
Washing your scrubs before you wear them helps in a couple ways. Since you’ll be wearing them daily, and washing them frequently, the colors may fade faster – leaving them looking older than they really are. Pre-washing your scrubs using one half to one full cup of vinegar helps set the color dyes, and helps prevent them from fading early on. Keeping them clean and ironing as needed keeps them looking, and smelling, brand new!
­­­
2. Save the Drama For Your Momma, and Save Your Scrubs for Work
It’s important to wear fresh, clean scrubs to work everyday. Wearing your scrubs for non-work related activities opens up an array of ways for them to get stains, rips or tears! Many Medical Assistants, and those elsewhere in the medical field, change into fresh scrubs at their workplace before the start of their shift, and then change out of them before leaving for the day.

3. R E S P E C T… Give Your Scrubs the Respect They Deserve!
Scrub pants and shirts may require a more thorough cleaning than just everyday clothes, like jeans or t-shirts. Consider washing them separately, so you are able to fully clean and disinfect them. Make sure you have several pairs of scrub pants and shirts so you can wash them together and start the week with fresh and sanitized garments to wear for work. This also allows you to keep a spare in your work locker or car in the event that you need to change your scrubs mid-shift.

Keeping your scrubs looking fresh and new is as simple as 1, 2, 3 – and following these three simple tips will help you maintain a professional work appearance. Not yet wearing scrubs to work?

Allergy season predicted to be harsh, pharmacies will see growth in business

by on April 25th, 2012 in Healthcare Careers Pharmacy Tech Training

A warmer than normal winter for most of the nation may have been great news for those that dread the cold and snow, but it may also mean a tougher spring for those who suffer from allergies and asthma as pollen counts in many parts of the country are higher than normal for this time of the year.

“I’m seeing a lot of people the last two weeks coming in with a lot of wheezing and coughing,” Dr. Mark Kalenian with Alabama Asthma and Allergy said recently in a Dothen Eagle article on the predicted increase in allergy cases across the nation predicted for this spring. The article also reported that pharmacies are seeing an increase in allergy related prescriptions. Pharmaceutical officials say there is a much higher number of allergy drugs on the market today and is just another example of the industry’s growth and the need for professionally trained pharmacy technicians who work closely with customers/patients to help them fill prescriptions and answer questions about the medicine they are taking.

The Ayers Career College’s Pharmacy Tech training program prepares students with the skills they need to become a reliable member of a pharmacy healthcare team. In addition to providing valuable technical and clerical support to pharmacists, a pharmacy technician mixes, re-packages, labels and delivers drugs to patients. Students may also maintain computer files dealing with patients and their medications.

In less than a year, students could be out of our Pharmacy Technician training school and into a stable career.
