He did with apologies. He had been an Army Ranger and was in a new career path and just grabbed what he thought was plain camo.
Still..........for the snake-o-phobe in my family......he should have gotten dressed in more light.He apologised every day for the entire hospital stay.
- 0Apr 6, '12 by StaragateI prefer a design for my scrub top. I have 2 that get extra remarks...a brown one with butterflies and a white one with a small, busy design of black petals and little red flowers. For some reason, the Alzheimers patients just LOVE that white one. That's the only reason I wear it, for me... it's just okay. Maybe the design makes their brain whir a little faster, but they give me the most compliments on that one.
When I go in as a patient, I like the more interesting designs. It opens up opportunities for conversation. Like when pts ask about the brown scrub? I tell them it's from Walmart and they smile and say "Well, at least they have SOMETHING that is nice."

I HATE head to toe white, not at all practical IMO and it was what was required of us in nursing school. Head to toe anything is pretty boring, but I know lots of facilities are going down that path.
I think "well-fitting" scrubs of any design trump ill-fitting scrubs everytime. Shirts riding up, pants sliding down and what is exposed in the middle is not professional in ANY setting...

- 2Apr 6, '12 by newtressI have only one amazing scrub top, the rest are solid and generic flowery print types. But this one was hand made by a woman who has an online site that allows you to choose your fabric/print and she sews your scrubs per your specs (longer/shorter, extra pockets, dropped neckline etc) The top is entirely all muted black, white and gray large African lions, cheetas and leopards. Sounds loud but it's not. I only wear it when I do public health flu shot clinics and people are just mesmerized by it, and made my whole clinical set up not seem so scary, especially for the children. I'd love to put the website here for yall to look at if it is allowed.
