Los Angeles, CA – After progressively wedging their approach into the hearts and minds of healthcare professionals throughout the US and the world, Figs has been made DNR. The model recognized for his or her form-fitting, over-priced, low-quality scrubs promoted by Instagram influencers/medical college students has lastly tripped over their very own overpriced, designer sneakers.
Previous to at this time, Figs had made a marketplace for themselves by sending a free pair of their shitty scrubs to medical college students, nurses, PA’s and different healthcare professionals in trade for copious posts artificially inflating the standard and luxury of the scrubs.
That every one modified when Figs posted a video promoting a pair of $46 scrub pants with a lady sporting a badge that learn “DO” on it trying to learn a e-book entitled “Medical Terminology for Dummies” whereas holding the e-book the other way up. And the idiots at Figs truly thought this might assist promote scrubs!!!
Feminine Physicians, particularly DO’s and people who help them instantly launched an all-out assault on the corporate by way of social media messages and emails. Many promised to boycott the scrubs, many had already determined to cease shopping for the scrubs earlier than this, doubtless due partially to the unusual stank they emanate that’s normally blamed on the pointless antimicrobial components.
We requested Cedars Sinai DO doctor and hospitalist, Hanna Rocky what she considered Figs. “I purchased a pair as soon as however they have been too type becoming. Clearly higher designed for posing for Instagram than for any precise work in a hospital. Plus, I can’t put on them within the OR and good lord they’ve a cool odor” Dr. Rocky advised Gomerblog.
Gomerblog requested Figs co-founder and med-school dropout Heather Hassan for a touch upon this fuck-up and he or she advised us, “Let’s be sincere, no self-respecting doctor was sporting Figs anyway. They’re utterly not purposeful, probably not antimicrobial and so they odor like ass. Our goal market is the individuals who wish to put on scrubs in public so different folks THINK they’re docs and nurses, not precise docs.”
Shortly after listening to these feedback, Dr. Rocky made a chart entry within the EMR below Figs’ account making the model DNR saying “we should always have allow them to fade off once we acknowledged the odor. Now, they’ve crossed over to the realm of being un-savable together with 5th Concord and the Minnesota Vikings.”
