Sewing up colourful scrubs

Peninsula Health staff proudly wearing handmade scrubs.

When Naomi Pratt asked the Somers Community Facebook page to help sew scrub caps for our frontline staff back in August, members were quick to respond.
Despite hoping for 10 – 20 caps, the Critical Care Liaison Nurse Practitioner was overwhelmed, receiving more than 400 in six weeks.
“Caps have been sewn by individuals who are part of craft groups, including the Balnarring Boomerang Bag group and the Lifestyle Village in Hastings group (AKA the ‘Busy Bees’),” says Naomi. “I’ve also had donations from local individual sewers – Jan, Helen, Judy, Diane, Marnee, Cathie and others.”  
Now, our staff are proudly wearing these colourful creations, bringing dashes of colour to the wards of Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals.
“I’ve had messages back from a few of the nursing staff who are really appreciative that people have taken the time to make and donate the caps, and have been thinking of our staff over the past few months,” says Naomi.
