Skilled Wound Care Dress Code
Please note that Skilled Wound Care associates adhere to a professional corporate dress code. This is because we are in the healthcare services industry, and we expect to give each other and all our customers and patients the highest level of care. As a Skilled Wound Care Associate you are our representative to the public, and your appearance and behavior should reflect the company’s professional image and ideals. Cleanliness, neatness, good personal hygiene and appropriate work attire are expected of our associates at all times.
In particular the company expects all associates to wear business formal clothing while in the corporate setting. For Clinical wound rounds, it is expected that individuals wear the Skilled Wound Care medical scrubs, appropriate footwear, and Skilled Wound Care identification badge. For other internal events employees will be notified prior to the event as to the acceptable attire for the event. (i.e. Business dress, Business casual, or Casual).
We expect that clothing will be clean and ironed without wrinkles. The appropriate attire is slacks and dress shirt with blazer or suit. No stains on clothing. We leave it to your best judgment when to wear a tie, but generally we recommend a tie. In almost all professional clinical settings men wear ties in the healthcare industry. For all corporate meetings we would request that all men wear suits with a tie.
