    Scrub pants give you a lot more protection against an inadvertent wardrobe malfunction. While our dress code does not specifically prohibit it, none of my female staff wear dresses or skirts to work.

    The place I'm at requires you to wear scrubs. Even if they didn't, I definitely would not want to wear skirts. If the inmates made the rules, the answer would probably be yes LOL

    I worked with a nurse for religious reasons she wore scrub skirts, they were pass her knees and she wore tights or leggings under them with no problem.

    I've never heard of them not being allowed depending on color, however none of my coworkers do. We all wear scrub pants.

    It's a beautiful day to save lives.

    If you are working in a housing unit with tiers, you wouldnt want to wear a skirt regardless of the length of it. If wearing a skirt is something a person always does for religious or personal reasons, they may want to consider a minimum security prison; though do not know if the state will allow anything but pants.

    I work at a level 5 male correctional center. There is no way I would wear a skirt. It is important to remember the environment you are working in.
