What is your vote? Should a male nurse wearing a scrub top and has chest hair be required to wear a T shirt underneath in order to cover up the chest hair?... Read More

    No tee shirt because some of the rooms are HOT. Add the extras for an isolation room and it gets to be unbearable. So it is a choice about which you would rather not see: chest hair or sweat.
    Shoot, you beat me too it, because I sho'nuf sweat like piggy. Add another layer of clothes on me and I'll be all the more likely to have sweat spots on the pits and back. Now someone tell me they'd rather see me standing over them holding a syringe with sweaty clothes on than a patch o' hair. I thought so.

    What few I have!
    Thanks for the mental image, Ted.


    No one, as far as I can read, has mentioned ear hair! Should ear hair be shaved off??? There's some people with some pretty long strands of ear hair growing from either within the ear or from the earlobes themselves. And, many times, those ear hairs are gray!!!

    And then there's nose hair!!! They can get long too! (A mustache, by the way, can "hide" long nose hair as they both grow and mingle together!)

    YES!! Ear hair should be banned!! So i won't have to look at the specks of wax dancing on it. lol

    My chest is so hairy, another dip and I would have been a gorilla!
    My woman loves me for the hairy beast I am (clean shaven face though) and
    I truly cannot believe that this has become such an emotive topic!
    I'd love to be smooth skinned and super sexy after a light application of oil
    but the truth is I am a hairy man and if I was to wax i would have to increase my protein intake by gazillions to make up for the hair regrowth which would be sapping my other necessary bodily functions.
    I work with a hairy legged lesbian. Do I complain about it................No! I accept her for what and who she is and focus on our professional relationship, not whether I find her legs "attractive" or not!
    Let's get onto a topic that really means something!
    Her woman might like to stoke her legs.
    MY woman loves to stroke my chest.
    Anyone who thinks a show of chest hair from a man (that is not controlled by his work uniform) needs to get a grip on what's important in life!
    If you have read the thread does anyone really think that chest hair is like displaying ample cleavage?
    In the old days of hospital training of nurses in Oz, the nurses had to wear pantyhose so that their pubic hairs didn't fall onto the workplace floor (causing an infection risk)and their shoes mustn't be glossed in case a man looked at their shoes and saw a reflection of their knickers!
    Llookout or I will post a phot of my chest and strike fear into those that hate humanity!

    Farkinott, Must you be so graphic!? I really don't care about what your chest hair looks like or if your woman finds it attractive. Or if you work with a lesbian as though you must say that when describing a woman's hairy legs at work, or what her mate thinks about her legs. As far as the conversation of the subject, must every subject be so serious or can the people on this board relax with a silly topic like chest hair?

    Then why even point out she's a lesbian, then?


    I'm outta here.

    pardon the pun, but did this topic turn hairy, or are we still poking fun (i thought we were)?

    I don't think anyone that posted here (me for sure) really lies awake at night thinking deeply about the issue of chest hair. I know I may have stated that it bugs me in a way that would lead one to think that...but mainly it was an exaggeration. It bugs me mildly but not THAT bad. It' s meant to be more of a humourous light topic...no one is putting it up there with issues that plague the nursing profession today or anything (I don't think we are anyway). I personally think this is a very funny thread and we need to keep it that way. We don't laugh enough in the world today.

    as long as the guy is wearing a regular scrub top--not one with a "cutesy" print--that's a bit jarring!!!

    and as long as the man is NOT wearing a gold medallion...we used to have a Dr. that did that and he also insisted that all the nurses call him "Nick" (his first name) and he used to call me "angel" (ewww...full body shiver). I guess when I think of male chest hair and scrub tops I think of that icky Dr. We used to call him "Dr. Feelgood" (behind his back of course)...he totally reminded me of a character out of a cheesy 70's adult movie. Ewwww.....So chest hair is not to bad....but please not in combo with thick gold chains with medalions and/or fanny packs (unless you work in a place fanny packs are convenient) This Dr. really didn't need one. (And no he wasn't a diabetic or had any life threating allergy that warrented a fanny pack)

    I am sorry ladies and gentlemen but I think that a t-shirt should be worn by men if they have excessive chest hair that will show thru a v-neck scrub top. I also think that women should wear a t-shirt if they are full busted as to not flash everyone they encounter...lol Towanna

    I tend not to notice either one, now have a golf club in your hand and I will certainly notice that.

    Ok I lied I have seen a few femme nurses flash their mammaries and yes I noticed.

    Still like golf clubs better though

    Lied again

    I may be old, Im not dead hahahahaha
