Mercy Health St. Rita's is donning new technology to help keep patients and staff safe.

St. Rita's and Vestagen Protective Technologies teamed up to provide new scrubs for staff at the hospital. The scrubs are made of a material that doesn't absorb liquids and is designed with an anti-microbial agent. St. Rita's is the first health system to use the Vestex scrubs with safety in mind, and those with St. Rita's say that keeping not only their patients but their staff safe is very important.

"It keeps both our staff members and our patients safe, so the nurse or tech at the bedside does not carry that (body fluid) into the next room with them," said Cory Werts, Chief Nursing Officer for Mercy Health St. Rita's. "We are absolutely committed to both patient and staff safety."

St. Rita's first started using the scrubs last year.
