Dress Code

We believe a professional appearance through appropriate dress, good grooming and proper identification enhances the confidence placed in us by our patients. All employees are issued name badges at the time of employment. Name badges should be worn at all times while on duty. Clothing should be well fitting, clean, in good repair, and professional in appearance. In order to maintain a professional image and practice our commitment to infection control, it is standard for employees that hosiery (stockings, socks) is required at all times in all areas—including areas that do not provide direct patient care.
