A simple look at nametag will tell you who’s a nurse
Take a look at the picture that accompanied the article regarding Kaleida Health scrubs that ran in the City & Region section of the Jan. 3 News.
Do you see Linda’s nametag? Do you see the large R.N. underneath it? That is how patients know you are a nurse. It has nothing to do with what color you are wearing.
Another way they know – you introduce yourself, tell them you are their nurse and then proceed to take care of them for the next 12 hours.
