120 Summer Days Tips for Medical Professionals to Take Advantage OfSummer is officially here! Now that the polar vortex is long gone, get ready to lather up some sunscreen and get outside! With significantly longer days during the summer months, soak up the sun and take full advantage of your days off! Whether you choose to go on a walk around the local park or have a beach-day getaway, the possibilities for summer fun are endless. Here are some tips from the Uniform Advantage Family on how they plan on spending their summer vacation.

Take a beach vacation: For some, fortunately a beach is just a reasonable drive away! Grab your friends or family, and bring some delicious snacks and set up your umbrellas at a nearby beach. Whether you choose to get some R&R and read a book or take a walk on the wild side with a banana boat tour, your quick summer escape will leave you feeling light-hearted and at ease.

Treat yourself to a vacation! “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine. Medical professionals, we know that you work extremely hard. Reward yourself for your dedication to your job with a vacation or stay-cation! Visit your favorite vacation destination or step outside of your comfort zone and experience new places with delicious cuisine, landmarks, and fun activities. Expanding your horizons and world-view is only a plane ticket or road trip away.

Run a 5k! Although running for fun is a foreign concept to most people, doing a 5k is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy summer’s beautiful days while setting a goal that will improve your health. Enroll in a 5k run with a friend to make training and the big day packed with fun! Many of these runs support nonprofit organizations and help fundraise to raise awareness so you are doing yourself and others a service by being active.120 Summer Days Tips for Medical Professionals to Take Advantage Of

Revamp your wardrobe! Updating your wardrobe gives you a cleansing, “new you” feeling that is perfect for the start of summer. Complement nature’s vibrant summer shades with a bright wardrobe of your own. Stay cool and look stylish with a simple, floral-patterned sundress. Or mix it up with a bold color-blocked wardrobe featuring bright shades, such as yellow and navy. Keep your eyes protected with a trendy pair of sunglasses. Popular sunglass styles this summer include cat-eye, mirrored, round, and retro looks! Tie your look together with a statement bag that tells everyone that you’re ready to hit the runway!

Happy Nursing Assistants Week from Uniform Advantage!

As a Nursing Assistant, you are often expected to do whatever comes your way in a timely and effective fashion. From cleaning up after your patients to making them feel at ease, your wide range of skills helps carry you through a job that demands the utmost in people and medical skills. In times where you are the first person to offer help to a patient in need, your improvisation skills quickly remedy any situation that comes your way. Whether a resident or nurse asks for your help, you know the value of preparedness and tackling your day with clear objectives. With this in mind, here are some tips to make your day run smoothly:

1) Have a game plan. Although it seems like a burden with your excessively long weeks that often mean working overtime, arriving 15 minutes early to work to plan your day helps you take charge of your responsibilities. These minutes of alone time will provide you the opportunity you need to get ahead and be informed of your duties.

2) Keep a basic work kit handy. If you have pockets or a waist pouch handy, be sure to keep the essentials (such as a pen, permanent marker, tape measure, and extra gloves) on hand in case you need to act quickly.

3) Let the RN know of your progress and if anything out of the ordinary arises. Your superior will appreciate your initiative and genuine care for your patients and profession, making you stand out from your peers.

4) Be cautious when lifting heavy objects and patients. The physical component of your job can be just as demanding as keeping track of your patients’ progress. Remember to use proper body mechanics and lift using your legs, not your back!

5) Smile! Keeping a smile on your face even in moments of pressure and distress is shown to reduce stress and boost your mood into a more positive one – seriously! Psychological research backs this phenomenon up. Your smile will help carry you through the day and uplift your patients in the process!Nursing Assistants Week 2014 v2
