Help Staff Spot Vendor Visitors
At our academic center, there are always a lot of new faces in the perioperative areas. To help staff easily identify new people and why they're there, we ask all of our vendors to wear red bouffants. We keep a sign by the red caps specifying who should wear them, and information on the correct person to contact while at the hospital. It helps us to easily identify where they belong and can help with regulatory concerns, like ensuring they don't open supplies on a sterile field.
