Hey everyone, I have been working my butt off for the past 5 months to get our dress code to allow scrubs and I finally pushed it through!!! No more stuffy dress code is required, we now have a comfort option too! Now the faculty is ironing out some details and I want to be able to give them some info about policies at other Universities that allow scrubs, but I haven't found any info regarding this in all my googling attempts. Does your dress code policy allow you to arrive and leave the hospital in your scrubs? Are there any restrictions about where you can and cannot wear them? ie cafeteria, public transport? We have a hard core clinical coordinator who is trying to rule this with an iron fist and really limit where we can wear them. He doesn't want us to wear them on public transport (or at least not the top, bottoms are ok), in the cafeteria at the hospital, or in the laboratory. Honestly, if i come running up from the clinics to pour up models at lunch time in the lab, the last thing I'm going to want to do is change out of my scrubs, or even just take off the top... it seems a bit ridiculous, we do have aprons to wear in the lab. He is also talking about trying to phase out the general use of clinical gowns and only wear them with certain procedures. I know a few programs do this, but most of them have the gowns being worn at all times when in patient treatment area. This makes so much sense from an infection control standpoint. So could you please help me out and let me know what YOUR program will and won't allow? I need ammunition in case he's being really unreasonable. As an aside, we are in Sydney, and the public transport thing would affect about 85% of the students since most of us train it to uni. Thanks!!
