The long-hair answer
Tuck away that long hair in style, thanks to a new scrub hat by Blue Sky Scrubs.
For those looking for a change from the elasticized bouffant surgical caps, Shelby Marquardt, MD, an anesthesiology resident, created the patent-pending Pony scrub. It functions exactly as the traditional slim-fitting scrub cap does, with the one difference being a special cinched-pouch in the back designed to accommodate both long and short ponytails, says the company. It’s available in 39 colors and patterns.
To wear the cap, cinch the pocket in the rear before placing the ponytail inside, then pull two ribbons and close the compartment.
The company is also working on the completion of a disposable version of the Pony scrub. It is expected to be available to health-care facilities this month.
Pony scrubs list for $24 each. Cost for a box of 100 disposable Pony scrubs will run between $20 and $40. Complimentary samples are available. For more information, call 888.302.5837, visit www.blueskyscrubs.com or circle number 167 on your Reader Service Card.
