OPINION: NURSES AND MIDWIVES UNIFORM SHOULD BE CHANGE (YES OR NO)
1. Nurses should have different Uniform from White as white become symbol of all health related profession and quacks
2. To rise the profile and status of Nurses start with proper identification and Uniform is first Identification.
3. It will provide self confidence to Nurses.
4. Let's leave white for ceremonial events and programs.
5. White has been observed to be easily stained by blood and other body fluid that is why Navy blue, Sky blue and green colours were proposed to be used by nurses across the globe because even if they are heavily stained by blood or other body fluid it can not be easily identified and they are less glaring to the eye (reflecting)
6. lets there an over all color, this chosen color shld be use in hospital premises
8. let there be UNIT specific scrub as A&E staff use in there unit, Paediatric unit shld have there own color diff with odas and O&G staff should there own.
9. There is no problem with changing it but who has the mandate of doing that? There seem to be a little arguement whether it is NANNM or the directorate of nursing if at all there is need it should be done thw right way that is my opinion?
10. Nurses/MIdwifes white uniform has been abuse by other health profession.. E.g Chew, EVT, Health information officer even some laborers do put on Nurses white uniform.
REASON WHY NURSES AND MIDWIVES UNIFORM SHOULD NOT BE CHANGE.
Though wearing color uniform it is a symbol of neatness but is misuse by other quacks in the hospital settings.
Opinion by Salisu Umar There is nothing wrong in wearing your uniform to whereever you qiah to go with the exception of parties may be. In my 31 of practicing nursing I have always qorn my uniform proudly amd it has accorded me great respect from the public and has opened to me more doors than I can remember. Even when an order was given that we should avoid wearing uniform to work but at work because BH are lookind gor health workers to take I never stopped wearing mine. I have been treated to such levels that I never expected in markets super markets and filling stations. It is just that nurses of nowadays don't like wearing their uniforms always they want to appear as Doctors around the hospitals. Me I worn my uniform always and I have never left my house to work in mufti to change in the hospital I always wear it to work and I have no regrets and to there is insult in wearing uour uniform to the market on yoir way home from my staff have been embarassed for not wearing their uniforms. During curfews. This is my opinion please.
This is what the design of male nurses uniform internationally I adopted it from a set brought to me from UK 1995 since then I have sown my uniforms in this format and to me we have no quarrel with the design our problem os beacuse we have allowed others to use the uniform unchallenged right now in Kano it is the adopted uniform of Dental tech people and we are trying to change color besides in kost setyings people now uae theatre outfits in the wards.
