Since July 30, more than 31 thousand people have received a new medical uniform at the outfitting center for free.

Since July 30, 31,323 people have received new medical uniforms at the outfit center of the Moscow healthcare system. Among them there are 13,334 employees of adult polyclinics, 6,140 employees of children’s polyclinics, 11,849 employees of hospitals. A total of 176,912 items of clothing and 62,646 pairs of shoes were issued.

Center examined Sergei Sobyanin… It is planned that by the end of this year all employees of city polyclinics and hospitals will receive a new uniform. In the future, clothes will be issued to medical workers every year, shoes – every two years.

“We started this project two years ago: we created a working group, chose the design ourselves, finalized it – determined the materials, quality and type of footwear, and so on. During this period of time, we have created a whole factory for sewing such clothes and a point where you can come to try on, adjust clothes, which is very important, ”the Moscow Mayor said, addressing the staff of medical institutions.

According to him, high-quality materials are used in the production of the new uniform – such equipment will be pleasant to wear for doctors who spend most of their lives in work clothes. The design of the form will continue to be finalized, employees of medical institutions will be able to offer their ideas to the developers.

“Just think, a robe, shoes. But when we multiply that by the number of nurses, doctors, and so on, we get astronomical numbers. We will sew about a million pieces of clothing. And about 300 thousand units of shoes. It’s actually a scale, a whole city can be clothed. We are trying to please you, ”added Sergei Sobyanin.

Until 2021, city clinics and hospitals independently purchased uniforms for employees, which differed in color and style. The decision to switch to a uniform uniform for medical workers was made by the Mayor of Moscow. “The administration of clinics and hospitals used to buy the uniform themselves. It was different, the quality was different, the completeness was different, the purchase frequency was different. We did as you asked, ”he said in a conversation with medical workers.

Modern high-quality clothing makes them look more presentable, doctors say. Many people liked the organization of the outfit center, where you can quickly and conveniently get everything you need. “There are monitors, electronic displays, they give you everything – you try on one, you are given another, if something doesn’t fit. It takes literally 15 minutes, ”said Maryana Lysenko, chief physician of the City Clinical Hospital No. 52.

According to Sergei Sobyanin, the new form will improve the mood of doctors when working with patients. “We are doing a lot in healthcare – we are building new buildings, reconstructing old ones, introducing new standards, changing the attitude towards patients. But in order for doctors to change their attitude towards patients, doctors need to be in a good mood, ”said the Moscow Mayor.

Last year, a working group was created to develop a line of clothing and footwear for employees of the Moscow healthcare system, which included chief doctors and chief nurses of Moscow polyclinics and hospitals. The Russian company Bosco di Ciliegi became the developer of the new form. The clothes are made at a garment factory in Kaluga. The footwear is supplied by the Belarusian holding.

The kit included long and short white robes, trousers, tops, polos and jumpers, as well as leather clogs and low shoes.

To determine the preferences of future consumers, we conducted a survey of health workers. The working group considered various styles, materials and colors of clothing and footwear, taking into account the specifics of different medical specialties. When modeling a medical uniform, the smallest details and nuances were thought out – for example, they took into account the wishes of doctors about where the pockets should be located, what cutouts and collars should be. Also, attention was paid to safety requirements. For example, medical workers of the departments of radiation diagnostics will receive a uniform with special plastic fittings (powerful magnets are used in radiation diagnostics devices).

Particular attention was paid to the placement of the badge: a sewn-in loop was chosen as the fastening.

Clothes and footwear are manufactured according to government standards using quality materials. Clothes do not shrink during washing, do not wrinkle, and most importantly, they breathe. Thanks to the special cut, the shape does not hinder movement. The shoes are made of genuine leather with breathable materials and orthopedic insoles. Since the models were developed specifically for medical workers, they do not have locks and laces, Velcro is used as fasteners.

The basic color of clothing has become white, traditional for medicine, but colored inserts and logos make it possible to distinguish between belonging to the category of a medical institution and the position of workers. In particular, blue is used in the uniforms of hospital doctors, turquoise is used by doctors at outpatient oncological care centers. For workers in adult clinics, blue was chosen, for workers in children’s – light green.

The uniform of hospital doctors differs from that of nurses and nurses. Doctors have blue inserts on coats, blue polos and trousers. The nurses have burgundy logos on the dressing gowns, an additional heart logo on the right sleeve, burgundy tops and trousers. The junior nurses have gray pants and tops, and a long-sleeved knitted jumper has been added to the set.

Medical workers can get uniforms in a special outfit center of the Moscow health care system at the address: Bolshoy Savvinsky lane, house 12, building 10b. This building was built in 1877 with an area of ​​2,190 square meters.

The Outfit Center is a modern store where healthcare professionals can choose and try on clothes and shoes on their own, as well as receive individual advice and recommendations from qualified personnel. At the customer’s service are fitting rooms, waiting areas, information stands, coolers, vending machines. Medical workers are treated to ice cream free of charge.

The center works seven days a week (except public holidays) from 09:00 to 21:00 and receives about 750 people daily. To make it easier to get to the outfit center, a special bus route has been organized from the Sportivnaya metro station.
