How we dress can say something about who we are. At Dignity Health Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) that’s especially true, thanks to the recent debut of color-coded scrubs and shirts.
Dignity Health YRMC team members from the Clinical Laboratory, Imaging Services, and Nursing Services model the recently introduced color-coded scrubs.
“Hospitalized patients meet people from many different healthcare services and a variety of support areas,” says Jessica Ryan, Manager of Service Excellence, at YRMC. “The color-coded uniforms are designed to give patients and their loved one’s information, even if it’s subtle, about their care team.”
This uniform look extends to YRMC team members who typically don’t wear scrubs. For example, Physical Rehabilitation therapists are sporting burgundy-colored shirts. And our dietitians and other Nutrition Services team members wear steel gray shirts.
The inpatient brochure patients receive includes a list of providers and the color of their attire. Check out the “We Are Your Care Team” chart to see who’s wearing which color at YRMC.
