From scrubs to new duds

Cheap hypervenom with sock “we wanted to have a look for nurses at Sick Kids, a look that would be kind of professional, but casual, comfortable and cool. It would be trendy, cheap hypervenom with sock explained Margaret Keatings, chief nursing executive at the hospital.

The new uniform line, unveiled yesterday at a fashion show to mark the start of Nursing Week, includes numerous mixandmatch options such as Tshirts and cargo pants.

While it’s optional, hospital brass hope to see most of the 1,400 nurses on staff sporting the new look. As an incentive, nurses have been given up to three new outfits for free.

“We’re not mandating it. What we’re doing is encouraging the look, Keatings said.

She explained that the last time there was a standard uniform at the hospital was back in the ’60s. Nurses began injecting their own choices into their wardrobe selections in the ’70s.

“Something happened in the ’80s and ’90s where gradually the uniforms became much more casual, Keatings said, noting that’s when scrubs of every colour and pattern cheap hypervenom with sock got introduced.

Oftentimes, you couldn’t distinguish between what nurses wore at home and at work, she said, noting some even wore jeans and street clothes.

And it was difficult to distinguish nurses from other hospitals workers, Keatings noted. “You couldn’t tell the difference between nurses and maybe a receptionist or a support worker. Everyone just looked the same,

Keatings took to the runway yesterday and modelled the new navy cargo skirt and white Tshirt.

The collection also includes polo shirts, tunics, terry cotton jackets, fleece jackets and microfleece vests.

Styles are available for both men and women in a selection cristiano ronaldo new superfly of colours. Some of the Tshirts have “kidfriendly” animal prints on them.

The hospital chose to work with Roots because it liked the clothes it had designed for cristiano ronaldo new superfly the Olympics. As well, Sick Kids had an established relationship with the clothier, which runs a store at the hospital.

Melinda McDonald, vicepresident of business development for Roots, said the company has never worked with a hospital before.

Nurses had a huge say in the design of the clothes because of their “very specific” needs, she said. For example, all clothes had to be made of natural cheap hypervenom with sock fabrics such as cotton, which wash well and don’t carry bacteria.

Collars and shirts are extra high to prevent stethoscopes from rubbing on necks. And there are plenty of pockets to carry the tools of their trade, including scissors and stethoscopes.

“They carry a lot, McDonald remarked.

Barb Bruinse, chair of the Registered Nurses’ Council at Sick Kids, said the uniforms will help nurses to stand out at the hospital.

“They give a little bit more of a professional identity to nurses across the organization, Bruinse said.

“It’s important for the public to be able to identify who the nurses are in the organization. We play such diverse roles. It nice to be able to wear pieces that say, Yeah I’m a nurse.'” cheap hypervenom with sock.

From ferry to forest

Cheap hypervenom with sock it came as a bit of a surprise to me to learn that, as a visitor to Waiheke, I could avoid the hot, noisy slog up the busy road from the Matiatia ferry hypervenom shoes terminal to Oneroa village by exchanging it for a shady wander through a stretch of native bush. Thanks to volunteers from Forest Bird over the past 20 years, regenerating bush now covers the valley on either side of the road, almost to the waters’ edge.

And thanks to Auckland Council, a local guide and nature expert, Janine James from digiadventure, was contracted to guide the Waiheke Free Walks programme over summer. If, like me, you tend to be an impulse visitor and neglect to make a plan of what to do on the island, the free walks is an initiative that deserves all the support it can get. Unfortunately, it has ended for this summer (although discussions are under way to ensure its continuation).

But on the day I went Janine was there to meet the 10am ferry in her highvis vest. She rounded us up and shepherded us along the water’s edge to hypervenom shoes the start of the track in the Te Atawhai Whenua Reserve.

On this particular humid Saturday cheap hypervenom with sock I was one of a widely aged group, from not quite 6 months cheap hypervenom with sock old to 60, who set off crocodile fashion behind Janine into the bush.

There was baby Croccie, mum Davina, a raft of excited children, a couple of parents and me. Although the headland is covered with different and wellsign posted walkways, we took the wetland one, edging up the lowest part of the hillside. The first thing I notice is the loud buzz of thousands of cicadas. Janine shows us the holes in the pathway from where they hatch before climbing up a tree and shedding their pupae shell to become the voice of summer.

The children attach the shells to their Tshirts as badges of honour and run on ahead. Within moments we are beside the raupo cheap hypervenom with sock swamp with fantail doing their sweet flirtations around us. A kereru, too lazy to lift off despite our disturbance, sits just above our heads in a kanuka tree. Perhaps it is satiated from feeding on the nowripe berries of the kawakawa, which as Janine points out tastes a bit like passionfruit and garlic mixed together.

Janine calls for quiet as we enter a little glade by a bush stream. Here, she points out the shy native fish which live under the banks, and even the most boisterous of the children, who up until then have delighted in ambushing us navy sealfashion from the bushes, are momentarily stilled. From our shady hillside we look down on the crowds slogging up the footpath beside the traffic and smugly reflect on our good fortune, but in no time at all we are at the top.

Janine, Davina, Croccie and I head off to the cafe at the Oneroa Bowling Club. This might have been the earliest bowling club in the country to allow mixedgender bowling and, although the decor is a blast from the past, it now serves espresso.

We enjoy our toasted sandwiches, Croccie has her lunch courtesy of mum, and all seems right with the world. I know that now I’ve wet my feet with this Waiheke walk that I’ll be back for more cheap hypervenom with sock hypervenom shoes.
