Introduction

Based on feedback from patients and families, the Brant Community Healthcare System implemented standardized uniform colours in October 2016. These new uniforms also had the job title for each member of the care team embroidered on the shirt. The intent was to help patients and visitors identify staff members as well as reduce confusion and enhance the distinctiveness of each member of the healthcare team.
