What's your take on wearing your uniform while you are attending to personal business outside of work...say to Wal-Mart, the local steakhouse, whatever? I think it's gross to trek around in your uniform to the store after you've been taking care of sick patients because of all the nasty things you might have been exposed to on the job. I see a lot of that here. Maybe they think they look cute or something. We were out to dinner at the Olive Garden and right across from us sat a nurse in what looked to be a blood-stained scrub uniform! UGH
I know convenience is probably the biggest reason that I see so much of this. It's just icky!
