Koi have revamped the Koi Stretch scrubs range completely - now it's softer and stretchier than ever!
We know that many dentists are loyal customers of Happythreads, and we thought it might be interesting to see how French dentists are dealing with the issues raised by COVID-19.
It’s definitely true that no two nursing jobs are the same, but one thing that nursing has in common across all of the different types of roles involved is that it’s a high-pressure job with lots of competing demands. Nurses need to be confident that they are putting their best foot forward, and need to know that their nurses uniform will not let them down at a crucial moment. Here at Happythreads, we are determined to provide the best possible uniforms to our nurse customers.

Nursing scrubs are not just convenient cotton tops and loose pants that you pull on when you get to work every morning. Nursing scrubs define your personality and tell people who you are. A well-fitted and styled set of matching nursing scrubs can make you stand out and make others take note of you. You will be seen as a confident nurse who cares about projecting the right image when you are seen wearing a good set of scrubs.
There are various codes and regulations that impact on carehome uniforms, these will normally depend on their acceptable work practices. Some institutions feel that staff should always be in uniform the way they are in hospitals, others would feel a less formal approach is more acceptable.
Building up layers, to keep warm is vital in the winter, these layers will help you feel more comfortable especially if you work in cold environments or have to travel a lot in cold climates. Layering will provide pockets of warmth to the body and retain this heat with the specialist fabrics used in the garment. Clothes alone will not keep your body warm and comfortable, consuming warm and hot drinks regularly will maintain good body temperature. Exercising during breaks even a quick walk will keep good blood flow circulation.
