    Full garb for scrub techs; circulators (RN) hats, also masks if invasive such as ashcaths, pacers, etc.

    I've worn cloth hats for years, but now they say we have to wear the disposable whole head covering now. (Which I disagree with)

    Our scrub nurses wear the whole kit and caboodle but our circulators only wear lead for regular caths. Everyone wears hat, mask, shoe covers etc for any ablation or pacemaker insertion.
