I went to the gym today and saw a male nurse lifting in his scrubs. I was a little bothered by it because I would think it would be unsanitary for someone to be working out in their hospital uniform, so I approached him and this... Read More

    if somebody came to work in their undies, again it would not be my business unless I'm there boss or something.

    What???
    I wear my scrubs because they are cheap, often stain resistant and easy to move in. Great for a grocery store run or going to the dog park.

    Gym clothes? Tight spandex is just not my idea of a fun time.

    But that's just me. I'd rather work out in scrubs (clean ones)!

    So if someone could find gym or workout clothes as comfortable and cheap as my scrubs, ill change to suit their desire for me not to wear scrubs publicly.

    I do like yoga pants though! But I end up wearing it with a scrub top anyway. Haha

    i didnt know people casually wear their scrubs out in public. couldnt you just wear sweat pants/shorts and a t shirt if you want comfort? i guess some people just want to show off that they're a nurse.

    Or a hair stylist? Just an example of another profession that wears scrubs to work. Maybe we should be afraid of them contaminating the equipment with dandruff-flakes and scalp conditions from a previous customer?

    What's more interesting is the amount of dog and cat hair on the "clean scrubs" that are worn into the hospital to take care of the patients. Anyone worried about that, or are we just worried about the gym equipment?

    Sweats don't breathe as well. I live in Florida and we only have hot, hotter and summer. (Save for the few "cold" fronts here and there)

    I don't want to show off I'm a nurse. There are plenty of medical assistants who work in doctors offices who do errands in their scrubs.

    Hair stylist, medical assistants, dental hygienists, veterinary techs, doctors, nurses, residents, ophthalmic aides, people working out in the gym, grocery shopping.

    Pretty much anyone who has walked into a Walmart has probably seen they have a massive scrubs section open to the general public!

    If you're really that worried about contamination, you should probably be more concerned about someone's hands and arms than their scrubs.

    And where do you think all those MRSA cases were before they presented to the ER for whatever reason? Out in the community, of course.

    I'd blow you off if you confronted me, too... how politely would depend on our relative physiques.
