Scrubs - Some Do's And Don't's


 Scrubs are a common thing to wear and not just in hospitals! And for good reason--they are comfortable, breathable, loose-fitting and can be fairly aesthetically appealing, with little effort! I like the look with clogs.  It looks really cute, in a casual, working sort of way! 

I, personally, am not in the medical field, but who wouldn't love wearing scrubs?  They are so comfortable!  They aren't form fitting and they are breathable, made almost always with cotton. And with all those gorgeous colors, I wouldn't mind wearing scrub pants as a change from sweats or yoga pants!

What is NOT seen is potentially harmful bacteria lurking in the material of unwashed scrubs.  So, I am making an appeal to any health care workers.  Please, please change your scrubs often!  It's easy to do when you have a place where you can buy cheap scrubs, like at Blue Sky Scrubs!  
One thing I do know...you don't want to wear scrubs that you wear in the hospital as casual attire.    That gets pretty messy. ALWAYS change into clean scrubs when you go to work and don't wear them home or out after you've been working in them.  That's why it is good to have multiple sets of scrubs so that you'll always have a clean pair.  It's not something we like to think about, but when medical personnel wear the same uniforms to work day after day without washing them, they are carrying lots of unsavory germs around. As a potential patient in a hospital and as someone who doesn't want hospital germs at my restaurant table where someone with unlaundered scrubs may have been sitting, I ask all health care scrub wearers to please wear clean scrubs! And may I suggest Blue Sky Scrubs as your vendor for scrub clothing!

Wow something I really never thought about but definetly will now. I know I do not want to catch infectious diseases and germs from a medical professional in a public place wearing dirty scrubs. Keep them clean and keep the germs away.

Interesting! I've never thought about the bacteria that could live in those. I worked for a chiropractor when I was 19 years old and got to wear scrubs every day. I still have a few pair and wear them around the house often. Can't beat that comfort and now you can get them in so many cute designs. Thanks for the tips about cleaning. :D

I use to work in a hospital and still have a few scrubs. They are comfy.

This is very true! It is gross to think about how many nurses just go straight to stores after getting off a shift. I worked in a grocery store and saw a lot of them, and couldn't help but wonder.
Even if they were in clean scrubs going to a shift, they were taking all the germs picked up in the store along with them, yucky!
I wish more people would write about this topic, and am glad you did!

Yona said...

I love scrubs and I think they come up with the cutest designs. I would definitely wear them for pajamas.

I totally agree and I used to work in the medical field! I never wore my scrubs more than one work day and as soon as I got home, I'd take them off and they'd go straight to laundry. annejk112233

I wish I could wear scrubs every day. They make comfy pajamas, too.

Jes said...

Just thinking about how germs and bacteria would be spread from the hospital to the home and back on the scrubs medical personnel wear is a bit gross and a little worrying!

Well I used to be in the Medical Profession years ago Wearing Scrubs is a Cardinal Rule as for Dress Code, I think Wearing them as Pajamas is cool, or a Loungewear but out in Public I don't think At least I wouldn't theirs a limit upon wearing them Unless you are in the Medical Profession they can wear them in public because that's theirs Dress Code Non-Medical Professionals I suggest either wear them in the Privacy of your own Home or don't bother wearing them Consider Scrubs as Pajamas Not Street Clothes Not saying you can't buy a Pair for yourself but Draw the line somewhere,
