Does the Devil Wear Prada or Flip-Flops?

Hitchcock, Boomer Jean; Hagerman, X-Yer Johnny

Academic Journal
The article presents the view points of the two authors regarding the relevance of fashion in the healthcare workplace. One author believes that a healthcare worker that shows too much skin or forgets to brush his or her hair will make people question his or her reliability, and is not the fastest path to promotion. Another author thinks that a three-piece suit is not a must to create an impression of reliability, rather he considers that professionalism and comfort should coincide.
