Friday Feature: Jessica, RN

  Jessica,  RN at The Skin Surgery Center
 I work 10 hour day shifts removing skin cancer. We process the tissue on site and repair the defect all in the same day. 
The nurses are taught how to inject the local anesthesia and sew at this facility. We follow the patients throughout their day and ultimately send them home cancer free. Everyone compliments our cute hats and they put a smile on our patients faces! 

Thanks Jessica!

Friday Feature: Kate, Nurse Anesthesia Student


My name is Kate and I'm a nurse anesthesia student. This picture is of some of my classmates and I this morning-from top left going clockwise: Wendy, Aubrey, me and Alex.

A day as an SRNA usually starts at 0530; we get in early to set up our rooms, check the anesthesia machine, draw up meds and go see the first patient in pre-op. The day ends whenever our room is finished or whenever our preceptor says we can leave; it all depends what cases are going on. Right now I'm on my neuro rotation, and today I had 3 craniotomies. It was awesome!

What I love about this "job"...well we aren't getting paid so I'll call it a role :)   I love that there are so many ways to give anesthesia and also many variations in what techniques and medications you pick based on your patients issues. It keeps things from getting boring, AND we have KimKaps to accessorize our scrubs!


Thanks Kate!

Friday Feature: Kayla and Shana-Surgical Techs


Our typical day in a small hospital is come in and do our daily rounds in getting instruments from other departments that need to be cleaned and sterilized. Then we set up for our first case of the day, by bringing all the supplies and instruments in the case and open all of it. We usually have colonoscopies and EGDs to do after surgeries are all done. After that we have to clean up our area and get everything ready for the next day. For a small town hospital as a surgical tech we are also housekeepers, central supply, and instrument washers, we do lots!!! Our favorite part is we love our team! We love the people we work with!!! We are way more than just coworkers, we are family! Our favorite part also is being in surgeries, of course we are surgical techs!

Thanks Ladies!

We Want to Hear from You!


Style 7(2t)



Our 2-toned style 7s are our traditional style 7, but features a fabulously cute contrasting band to accentuate the main fabric of the cap. You'll still find the same fullness of style 7, complete with convenient fabric ties that will offer a close fit and an added dose of cute. You'll love the versatility of this style, which gives you the option to tie under the cap in classic bouffant style, or cinched over the top to create a whole new look!

You’re going to look so cute!

 Because we love to offer our customers a variety of fabric choices, we usually only run a fabric once. The fabrics shown in our photos on the blog don't necessarily reflect the inventory we currently have in stock. To view all of the fabric options currently available in Style 1 or to place your order, click HERE
 
You can also check our our custom cap option where you can send in your choice of fabric and select any of our 8 styles for just $10/hat. There's more information HERE

Style 6(2t)



Our 2-toned style 6s are just as cute and versatile as our style 6, but the coordinating band fabric sets them apart from the original. With style 6(2t) you'll still find the same handy "pony pouch" for your hair that the ribbons can be tied around in a darling bow, or you can tuck the pouch into the hat portion and tie the ribbon, cinching the cap closed in the back. With so many fabric combinations and style options, style 6(2t) is one of our most diverse styles at KimKaps!
