He-e-e-e-e-re’s Halloween!

Happy Halloween–we hope everyone is having a hauntingly fun day like we are!  Our team got in the spooky sprit by noshing on a buffet of terror-filled treats and wandering the halls in our creative costumes.  We all voted for our favorite, so check out the pictures below and we’ll let you know who was picked…

Drum roll please….the favorite costume this year picked by our staff was Tammy the Corpse Bride (3rd from the left in the top collage).  Congrats Tammy!  Everyone enjoy the remainder of this haunted holiday and stay safe!

Boo! Scare off the Halloween Hazards This Year

Trick or Treat

Since our scrubs see their fair share of hospitals and doctor’s offices, we wanted to make sure you and your family stay safe on the upcoming Trick or Treat trail.  Here is a list we compiled from several sources of basic ways to prevent accidents when energy and excitement levels get batty!

  Visible Vampires:  Trick or treating while it’s still light out is a safe bet for young kids.  If this isn’t an option, here are some easy solutions to illuminate your clan:

  • Glow sticks and jewelry (cheap and can make a costume stand out!)
  • Strips of reflective tape on costumes or bags (found in sporting goods and hardware stores)
  • Small flashlights can help navigate winding driveways and porches where pumpkin luminaries may not be enough

   Stranger Danger: Make sure that those goblins under 12 are accompanied by an adult; those a little older should travel in a big group and have a way of contacting an adult if need be. 

   Treats Not Trips: When candy craze is in full swing it’s easy for kids to forget the rules they already know, so keep them on their feet by:

  • Walking, not running from house to house
  • Using  crosswalks and sidewalks whenever possible
  • Watching out for cars that may be backing up or turning neighborhood corners
  • Making sure their costumes don’t drag to prevent falling or getting too close to lit candles
  • Masks can make it hard for kids to see their surroundings,  try face paint instead (make sure to test in a small area to make sure they’re not allergic and remove before bedtime to prevent skin or eye irritation)

   Candy Caution: Check pumpkin pails for possible tampering or choking hazards before letting kids dig in–also make sure that any homemade treats are from a trusty source.

   Haunted Huddle: As your ghoulish group is getting ready, repeat some key reminders before sugar levels spike and distractions are everywhere.


…and lastly, HAVE FUN!  What safety tips do you and your family use to ward off the Halloween Hazards?

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk Recap!

Happy Pinktober, everyone! As you may already know, we at UA took part in this year’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk yesterday to help support those who have been affected by breast cancer and help promote awareness and prevention. Currently, our team has raised over $2,300 and we will continue to raise money throughout the month of October.  At the end of the Month, UA will match all our donations…so we are hoping to reach our goal of at least $5,000!

Many of our friends and Facebook fans were able to attend the event, and some came to see us as we walked (and they scored a free UA pink bra t-shirt!).  Thanks for saying hi!

**If you’d like a chance to win one of our great pink bra t-shirts, visit our Facebook fan page or come back to our blog this Wednesday for a Win-It-Wednesday contest!

Here are some pictures we took at the event:

Thank you everyone who came out and for showing your support!

In order to help us reach our goal of $5,000 even faster, please donate on our Team UA page found here:

Happy Howwwllloween Prints!

Happy Howwwloween Month! At the end of this month children and parents will be knocking on neighborhood doors for some much antipated Halloween treats!  So while the kiddies are counting down the days to pillowcases full of candy (and parents looking forward to sugar rushes and sticky fingers!), everyone else gets to celebrate all month long with festive decorations, bedazzled crochet sweaters and themed Halloween Print Tops!

We love this “Good Time Ghouls” Mock Wrap Scrub top because the combination of yellow, black and orange against a pretty purple background…all the perfect mixture for a wearable Halloween themed scrub top that won’t scare anyone away!


Another thing we can’t forget about the excitement of Halloween for us adults is Halloween themed parties! Every year at our office people will dress up–or get alllll decked out.  The past two years we have had a potluck and contest for costumes. We have some creative people here at UA!  Check out pictures of our Halloween office parties from years past…

Good morning, Happy Monday and Happy Pinktober!

Saturday, October 1st, marked the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness month, and here at UA we are well into our fundraising and support efforts! This Sunday, October 9, several UA Team Members will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.  This is our third year participating in the walk and we hope to see some fellow South Floridians out there!  So far we have raised over $1,700 and hope to continue to raise money all month.  If you’d like to donate through Team UA for the American Cancer Society, you can do so on our Team Page. 

Another way to help show your support throughout the month of October is to wear pink with pride! (I’d like to add that in the spirit of “Pinktober” I am wearing my pink sneakers, pink sweater and pink scarf today to work :)).  We have numerous pink scrub tops and scrub pants along with a variety of Pink Ribbon Tops online at UA.  Check out this beautiful print from Peaches!


Or show your support with a pink ribbon stethoscope!


Hope you all have a fabulous week!
