Most hospitals won't allow you to wear them outside the OR. I highly suggest investing in a pair of Dansko's or similar clogs. They're very comfortable, stain-resistant, and easily washed. Plus you can slip them on very easily when you're so rudely awakened at 3 am by your beeper for a new admission.

Yeah. Most hospitals will require you to have both closed toe and heel shoes, too, so dont get the sandals.

Yeah, usually you only need them for the OR or when delivering in L&D. Otherwise...you wouldn't wear them, right?
