We are excited to announce UA’s newest Scrub Superstar of the Month! Our outstanding October healthcare professional is…
Shamira is pictured above in her complimentary set of UA brand scrubs. Shamira’s Scrub Top was designed by Uniform Advantage for the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital clinical departments. For her pants, she chose the UA Best Buy Scrubs Women’s Elastic Waist Scrub Pant (Style #307) in ceil blue.
Read on to learn more about our October Scrub SuperStar…
What is your current position?
I am a Registered Nurse on the post-op surgical floor of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital. I work the night shift, so I have three days on and four days off.
Why did you choose this particular career?
I chose nursing because I wanted to be in the HealthCare field and I’ve always wanted to help people. I like being able to give people the best care possible, especially when they are sick.
I especially like working with children – they bring a lot of joy to the floor. Even though they are sick, they still bring a smile and it’s heartwarming.
What do you love about your career?
I learn a lot of new things every day and I can really help people in the 12 hours I am there. I get to help kids get back to the best health possible. Some patients are in and out in a couple of days and some are there for months. I try to ensure both the kids and parents feel comfortable and have a good experience.
Plus, all of the staff helps each other out and makes sure everything is in order. Once a Child Life Specialist brought a Wii to a patient’s room to cheer him up.
What is one of your favorite on-the-job memories?
I had a five-year-old patient who thanked me for helping him out throughout his stay. It was gratifying to know that he wasn’t in pain and that he would be going home happy. Getting this feedback ensures I’m in the right career.
What do you eat during a long shift to keep you energized?
I definitely drink coffee. Plus, I eat dark chocolate covered blueberries to help keep me awake.
What do you do to relax after a long shift at the hospital?
I sleep as much as I can and catch up on all my TV shows. I also spend time with my friends when I can.
Finally, what feature is the most important to you while choosing your scrubs?
Comfort – for pants especially, since I’m tall. Sometimes finding the right length is challenging. Plus, it gets cold in the hospital, so my jacket is also important.
Thank you Shamira for all that you do for your patients and for sharing your experiences with us!
One out of every eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer throughout their lifetime. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer, the risks and the value of screening and early detection, as well as treatment options.
We are pleased to announce that we will continue to support and participate in causes that fight against breast cancer. We launched our Paint Your Page Pink campaign to raise money and awareness for a cause that is very close to our hearts. We will donate $1 for every new UA Facebook page like and for every new UA Instagram (@uniformadvantage) follower during the month of October 2016. Our goal is to raise $5,000. All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society (ACS) Making Strides organization.
On October 29, 2016 our employees and their families will be participating in the ACS Broward County Making Strides Walk for the eighth year. UA’s Paint Your Page Pink campaign and partnership with ACS, alongside of participating in the Making Strides Walk, has helped to raise more than $35,000 in the past eight years. Make sure to check back to our blog come early November to see our participation in the Walk.
