Wether you’re a medical student starting an internship in a Hospital or you’re a surgeon, a nurse, or an Intermediate Care Technician, the shoes that you’re wearing at work should be:
- Suitable to support your bodyweight all day long
- Resistant to the daily damages caused by washing and wear
- Comfortable, as comfort always represents a key aspect concerning feet and posture
- Hygienic, easy to wash and sterilize, to eliminate the environmental bacterial count
- Safe and certified as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), as to prevent the risks of a specific task
When thinking about the Nurse stereotype, what we immediately recall is their colourful rubber clogs, that include all the above-mentioned characteristics.
Safety standards for nursing clogs
Nursing clogs are class II Protective Equipments, certified in compliance with the European regulations Europe EN ISO 20347:2012 and 20345:2011, depending on the presence or not of the Cap.
Safety, in a nursing shoe, stands for:
- Closed upper shoe to avoid the infiltration of potentially harmful organic substances
- Heel closure to stabilize the foot
These are the essentials. It’s in the different wards that specific technical needs take shape.
Reposa for Hospital workers
The Reposa sterilizable clogs line arises specifically to dress nurses and hospital operators.
The peculiarity of Reposa Max, Reposa Easy, Reposa Safe and Reposa Complete is to resist to the extremely high sterilizing temperatures, which in a hospital means preventing infections.
