I love my company. I love our customers. I love what we do.
Confession: My name is Arthur Lucero and I'm a CEO in love with his own product 🙌💯 Pushing limits and staying active have been my routine from Day 1. From graduating the US Air Force Pararescue Indoctrination course, to Triathlons, MMA, and running marathons - a lifestyle of health and fitness has always been a passion of mine. It's also been a great outlet to vent and put the past behind me, focus on the present and prep for whatever tomorrow might bring with an open mind. That said, the key to continuously hammering out goals, physically and mentally, is the...
Tales of an ICU Nurse:
Why FITScrubs® is the Answer
It's 6 pm, I am rushing to finish the last of my interventions, pass out the last few medications, do one more frequent assessment on a patient and get it all documented before shift change at 7 pm. If I could run, I would, but running is reserved for emergency cases, so speed walking it is. Now onto my destination to see my patient, who just happened to be at the very end of the hall. Ha! If it were only that easy to get through the end of hall at the end of shift. Two steps into my journey, I'm pulled...
Be the Difference
We, as healthcare professionals are quick to notice when things start going south. We can see it in our patients, in social situations, in family dynamics, we recognize it almost instinctively and we are fast to react and save the day, without hesitation. But why don’t we apply the same principles to each other? Why can we be healers of people, but not healers of one another? It’s not different, we are the same, we have the same emotional capabilities. This doesn’t change, no matter the job title, employment, skin color, situation, background or ethnicity. Why is it that I...
We love us some ZDoggMD (Review begins at 3min mark)
Physician extraordinaire, ZDoggMD, does more than treat patients - he addresses serious healthcare issues, challenges status quo and advocates change for the greater good in the medical community, but in his own "ZDogg" way. I have no idea how he finds the time to do all he does; creating hilarious but poignant healthcare related music parodies to taking on serious issues like the current opiate epidemic. I have been a fan of his from day 1.
Years ago he was doing a review on a pair of antimicrobial scrubs our PurThread partners had developed and it got my attention. I remember watching the youtube video and thought, "That technology is great, but it needs to be in a real cool scrub for everyone to WANT to wear them." The former PurThread scrubs looked like any other average scrub. You had no way of knowing that the world's most advanced antibacterial fabric technology was loaded in the plain scrub. Hence my FITScrubs® passion became directed at partnering with PurThread® and the rest is history.
As a token of appreciation, I sent ZDoggMD a set of our Antimicrobial Athletic FITScrubs® with a thank you note for him being the inspiration that he was, and is. To my surprise, and in true ZDogg fashion, he was kind enough to share a few thoughts on the work my team and I have poured into our silver embedded medical scrubs and even "enhanced" some features we didn't know existed. (Go to 4:20) Love this guy:)
With deepest gratitude, thank you ZDoggMD!
FITScrubs® set to launch.
Arthur Lucero founded FITScrubs® to create high performance medical apparel and antimicrobial fabrics to help keep healthcare workers safe and comfortable. Photo: During his 12 years as an emergency department paramedic, Arthur Lucero had to purchase his own scrubs. He thought he could make a better product, and tried bamboo fabric for its organic nature, antimicrobial properties and comfort. But the drape was too heavy, it shrank, and it wasn’t durable enough to suit him. “I put the project on hold and was waiting for fabric technology to mature. Then in 2012, [athletic clothes manufacturer] lululemon began gaining significant traction...
