You give 100% to your daily rounds, no matter who your patients are or what kind of care they need; you deserve 100% in return from the medical garb you wear, right down to your shoes. That’s why you should consider Dansko clogs.

Dansko was a company born from a couple’s wish to be more comfortable and help their friends find that same comfort. It has grown into a highly regarded brand for comfortable shoes but is still 100% employee owned and operated, ensuring that each pair of shoes is crafted for ultimate support and durability.

From the first prototype measurement to material inspection, pattern cutting, testing, and beyond, Dansko clogs are baked to a golden perfection. And every clog in any singular collection is built with the same sole, meaning that if you find a fit you like best the rest in the collection will work just as well!

“I’m a pediatric occupational therapist –which means I play ALL day long with kids. Serving all ages from NICU babies to teens, I walk the hospital floors and run around the therapy clinic after kids… so I need shoes to keep up with me. When I get home, my Dansko shoes continue supporting roles in dog walking, cooking dinner and chasing my own two rug rats. Life just keeps going here, and since my arches are bad, I’m thankful for my Dansko shoes. I am lost without my Dansko shoes. Thanks for being part of my team.” – Joanna B., Vancouver (courtesy of Dansko.com)

But Dansko clogs aren’t just for health professionals – they have been worn by teachers, artists, mothers, chefs, golfers, waitresses, and everyone in-between! From a high-pace day to a leisurely walk at night, Dansko clogs offer durability and support when and where it’s needed. In fact, many happy customers have reported fewer body aches and pains as well as a relief from the pangs of previous injury.

From scrubs to shoes like the Dansko clogs, every brand offered has met and exceeded the high standards of Tafford so that you know you are investing your money in something that will last and hopefully make your life a little easier at work or at play.

5 Tips for Adapting to a New Hospital

By Sarah Wengert, Travel Nursing Blogs

Friendly Nurses

Whether you’re starting a new Travel Nurse assignment or a new perm job, adapting to a new hospital can present a challenge. You’ve got to get your new commute down, get your bearings amongst new surroundings and systems, get to know your new colleagues, and more.

But no worries — nurses and other healthcare professionals are strong, flexible people, and you’ve totally got this! Here are 7 tips from our friends at Medical Solutions for adapting to a new hospital:

Make New Friends … But Keep the Old

That old Girl Scout saying comes in handy when adapting to a new hospital. Be friendly and open to getting to know your new colleagues. Take a genuine interest in each of them personally. Your new work friends will be a huge asset to you as you continue to learn your way around, and you will likely make some really great new friends. But also, make sure to stay in touch with your good, old pals. It’s really important to have people you trust and can confide in on your side — especially when undergoing a change like adapting to a new hospital — so be sure to continue to cultivate those relationships.

Take Care of Yourself

Self-care is hugely important for caregivers like yourself! Adapting to any new environment can be particularly draining. So make sure that you take the time to eat right, exercise, and do all the things you need to — whether that means relaxation or adventure for you — in order to keep yourself fully charged and working up to the best of your ability. Be sure to make time for “me time.”

Be Positive

Positivity is infectious, so by being positive you will literally improve every situation you encounter. Smile, communicate clearly and with a good attitude, focus on what’s working and find positive solutions for anything that is not. The right attitude will instantly give you a great reputation and make others look forward to working with you.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions!

Sure, you are a healthcare pro, but there’s so much to learn in your new hospital that you will definitely benefit by asking as many questions as possible. Don’t be shy, don’t feel stupid — always ask. Even if it’s just a small curiosity. It will serve you down the line and your new colleagues will appreciate your effort and interest.

Be Adaptable

A certain amount of peacefully adjusting to a new hospital can be chalked up to you yourself being adaptable to the facility and situations you encounter there. As you get your bearings, go with the flow as much as you can. Figure out how things work at this facility and mirror that. Being flexible will make your life much easier as you adapt.

An Interview with Michael and Frida Donner, Barco’s Nightingales Foundation

At Tafford, we are working hard to get to know our vendors better. As our relationships build with them, we are able to be a better resource for you when choosing the best scrubs. This is the first blog post in a series focused around our vendors.

We love Barco Scrubs, known for their flexibility, movement, and comfort. But did you know about their philanthropic side? Recently, we had the opportunity to interview Michael and Frida Donner, founders of Barco’s Nightingales Foundation, about their work.

Michael and Frida Donner

Tafford: What motivated you to start Barco’s Nightingales Foundation?

The Donners: For some time we had been trying to think of a way to pay tribute to four people who greatly influenced our lives: Michael’s mother and father and Frida’s grandmother and grandfather. The idea of helping children around the world with severe problems seemed to be a fitting way to honor their lives, their values and the impact they had on us. Through our Foundation, we can make a difference in the lives of children and their families in ways similar to the way they impacted us.

Tafford: Since starting the Foundation, what do you consider to be your greatest accomplishments?

The Donners: Improving the lives of 20,000 children – that’s kind of overwhelming to think about, and by far our greatest achievement. Personally, the opportunity to see first-hand the difference our work has had in making the world a better place, especially for children in need. We never anticipated we would have impacted literally thousands of children so quickly. We thought we’d be influencing and helping many, but we never imagined that our Community of Compassion would provide nearly 3,000 life-changing surgeries with ReSurge International, 300 with camperships to Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, and clean water for 15,000 by building solar water wells with Hispaniola Mountain Ministries.

Tafford: How do you select the charities to support?

The Donners: We met Phil Borges, a photographer, who told us about the work he did with ReSurge International on the medical trips where he photographed the stories of life-changing surgeries. We asked for an introduction to the executive director and realized that this was truly an organization that was changing lives.

We first learned about Ronald McDonald House Charities through a business relationship with McDonalds. Then we learned that one of Barco’s employees’s had a child with cancer who had been going to their camp, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times. We knew there had to be a way for us to help send more kids to camp. This started our relationships with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, and ultimately to the camp.

We were introduced to Hispaniola Mountain Ministries through another customer, Phil Little. He told us about his foundation that worked to build schools and provide medical care in Haiti. We asked how we could help and he said that they needed water wells. The people of Haiti were desperate for clean water to prevent disease and improve lives. We told him we would help and since then, we’ve built four wells, each helping about 5,000 people.

All of the charities we support start with personal relationships. It’s vital that we know their stories and hear and see personally how they are making a difference. For each, we maintain a close relationship so we can be certain that the funds we provide are channeled in the right direction.

Tafford: Do you anticipate working with additional organizations?

The Donners: No. This is our style – hands on and intimate. There is only a certain amount of time and energy we can offer. Michael has personally visited the camp, travelled to Haiti and Peru to see our work and to ensure we are making a difference. It’s not just about writing a check, it’s about being intimately involved and working as close as possible to the children being helped.

Tafford: Where do you see the future of the Foundation?

The Donners: Our future is continuing to be supported by our Community of Compassion. This includes our Barco Uniforms family, our supplier community, our families, friends and customers. As we continue to spread the word, this Community of Compassion grows, we have the opportunity to help thousands more children. We have an optimistic and hopeful future. As we realize more success we are able to do even more while continuing to pay tribute to the nursing profession and to nurses throughout the world, and to the amazing work they do. Through our work, we hope to continue to elevate the image of nurses, showcase their professionalism and celebrate their dedication.

Tafford: What do you feel is the greatest need in the nursing profession today?

We would like to see the image and portrayal of nurses in the community, in Hollywood, in the movies and on TV, in the press, and in the public be elevated. People need to understand and appreciate the highly skilled, highly clinical role nurses have as they contribute to saving lives, healing wounds, and bringing a courageous heart as they help those who are ill. They are skilled professionals helping to heal and save lives, and their contributions are made on a much higher level than the image portrayed by Hollywood. Nurses are partners with doctors in healing and saving lives.

Tafford: How can others support and honor nurses?

The Donners: In a national poll, with exception of 1991, the most respected occupation in the United States has been nursing. It’s true that they have support, but we believe their image should be elevated and they should be celebrated. We have an Award of Excellence that is given annually to a nurse who gives back through volunteering. In general, and at the least, we should celebrate and honor nurses during nurse week. Better yet, we all should show support by stepping out and letting the world around us know how important we all think nurses are. Write to the media. Voice your opinion. Tell the media and Hollywood to get it right, to be accurate, and to show nurses doing the work they actually do as partners with doctors.

 

Brand Favorites: Cherokee Scrubs – Softer with Every Wash

cherokee scrubs

Making patients more comfortable is part of your job, but that doesn’t mean you should have to compromise your own comfort. Long days and itchy, stiff fabrics just don’t agree. And when you’ve been in a state of discomfort all day, it’s tough to smile and focus on other people – which is why you got into the medical industry in the first place, right?

Don’t wait until you get home from work to feel great! The first step to truly being there for your patients is keeping yourself comfortable in soft, luxurious scrubs. Cherokee Workwear are the number one selling brand of scrubs in the world – yes, we said world. The poly/cotton fabric blend used in to build Cherokee scrubs actually gets softer with every wash. They were comfortable the first time you wore them, but wait until the second time and even months from now; your scrubs will be so cozy that you’ll feel like you are wearing your favorite pair of sweats.

But Cherokee scrubs aren’t just great because of the soft fabric. Read what the creator of the collection, Susan Nunez, has to say:

“Our goal was to have the best fabric—one that is extremely durable, non-fading and easy care–as well as the best construction. We are extremely proud of the collection and its impact on professional medical apparel.”

The collection of Cherokee scrubs began in 2004 with 16 colors and a range of size and styles to please each hard-working man and woman in the field. But with every new season, more color and style options have been added in a constant evolution of the brand. One of the great additions has been the Pro Flexible and Perfect Stretch fits, which allow even more movement – from running to a trauma patient, to bending down to pick up a child’s dropped stuffed animal.

“Built for lasting comfort,” you simply can’t go wrong with Cherokee scrubs. Tafford carries a wide selection from the Cherokee line, from the Workwear Originals to the graphic and bold Runway line, not to mention shoes and accessories! Tafford believes in your comfort and, of course, helping you look your best on the job. So next time you need a scrubs upgrade, check out our vast selection of great choices like Cherokee!
