Yes, these can also be referenced as scrubs. Today,
any medical uniform consisting of a short-sleeve shirt and pants is known as "scrubs".
This is less about style and more about hygiene. Hygiene is a set of
practices performed for the preservation of health. According to the World
Health Organization (WHO), "Hygiene refers to conditions and practices that help
to maintain health and prevent the spread of diseases."
Scrubs are the sanitary clothing worn by surgeons, nurses,
physicians and other workers involved in patient care in hospitals. Originally designed
for use by surgeons and other operating room personnel, who would put them on when
sterilizing themselves, or "scrubbing in", before surgery, they are now worn by
many hospital personnel. Their use has been extended outside hospitals as well,
to work environments where clothing may come into contact with infectious agents
(veterinarians, midwives, etc.). Scrubs are designed to be simple (with minimal
places for contaminants to hide), easy to launder, and cheap to replace if damaged
or stained irreparably. In the United Kingdom, scrubs are sometimes known as Theatre
Blues. The spread of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has increased
the use of scrubs but can give wearers a false sense of security that they are 'clean'
when in fact are as easily contaminated as any other clothing.
In many operating rooms, it is forbidden to wear any exposed
clothing, such as a t-shirt, beneath scrubs. As scrubs are designed to promote a
clean environment, the wearing of outside clothing is thought to introduce unwanted
pathogens. Nearly all patient care personnel at hospitals in the United States
wear some form of scrubs while on duty, as do some staffers in doctor, dental, and
veterinary offices. Doctors in the United States may wear their own clothes with
a white coat except for surgery. Support staff such as custodians and unit clerks
also wear scrubs in some facilities. When the medic is not performing surgery the
scrub is typically worn under a white coat.
Scrubs worn in surgery are almost always colored solid
light green, light blue or a light green-blue shade. Non-surgical scrubs come in
a wider variety of colors and patterns, ranging from official issue garments to
custom made, whether by commercial uniform companies or by home-sewing using commercially
available printed patterns. Some hospitals use scrub color to differentiate between
patient care departments.
Surgical scrubs are not generally owned by the wearer.
Due to concerns about home laundering and sterility issues, these scrubs are usually
hospital-owned or hospital-leased through a commercial linen service.
Bouffant surgical caps are perhaps the most widely used
scrub hats in hospitals, and their usage is not limited to only nurses and surgeons:
hospital patients are required to wear a bouffant cap when having surgery of any
