Taking a leaf out of private hospitals, SMS hospital is going corporate as it is planning to roll out a policy for colour-coded attire for all staffers. The hospital has initiated this change in the surgical department II and V recently on a trial basis.The hospital claimed that they are doing it to create an environment of more clinical excellence and caring for patients.

The policy will be applied to trolley men, ward boys, lab technicians and other staff .
