    Bad judging, at least it's a solid color. The psychedelic patterns some people wear beat those hands down!

    I worked at an outpatient facility a few years ago and we had a nursing assistant who was fond of yellow low-rider scrubs with a black thong. Nice. Also she frequently wore white pants with multi-colored polka-dot panties. She was a quality individual!

    Plain white ... very thin fabric that you can kind'a see through ... revealing too much of the person's underclothes, body hair, and body -- not a pretty sight.
    You're bringing me back to my nursing school days. I can't tell you how many of my classmates would wear patterned underwear (or no underwear) under their thin white uniform pants. So inappropriate!

    A long, long time ago, our hospital decided that all RNs would wear the same scrub design chosen by the hospital. They supplied the scrubs, and we changed when we got to work. First, we wore ceil blue scrubs, which were OK,
    Then we wore matching light maroon scrubs. THEN the hospital changed its mind again. (Or maybe it lost it, or went color-blind).
    The new scrub tops were an ugly shade of pucky yellow, with "Autumn shades" of leaves scatterd all around them. The scrub pants were a mustard yellow. One year, one of the nurses drew brown branches all over a pair of scrub pants, and went to a Halloween party as a tree.
    Finally, the hospital came to its senses. We are a pediatirc hospital, and each nurse may wear her own scrubs, whatever color she wants, as long as it conforms to our "Standards of Professionalism" and our Dress Code. Solid colored pants with matching printed scrub tops. We can even wear T-shirts, tucked in, as long as they were obtained at the hospital and has our "Official" logo on them.
    The nightmare nurse you described would have had 2 verbal warnings, followed by a written reprimand in her permanent record. Continued abuse of the hospital policy re: scrubs could have resluted in her termination.

    BTW, what bright person decided on all WHITE scrubs? They show every stain, spot, blood drop, etc. Yuks.

    Oh, and now with the advent of thong panties, we have a "thong patrol". If someone sees a staff member bending over to where her thong is exposed, she reminds her to pull it on up. (Her pants).

    Saw another standout set in the cafeteria the other day. Peds is the only department in my hospital where personnel aren't color coded, and this young lady had some real winners on: VERY low-cut white, kelly green and fuchsia geometric print shirt, forest green and mustard yellow swirl print low-rider pants. Combine that with her exposed "muffin top" and... won't someone please think of the children?!?

    I worked with a CNA who was wearing white pants with NO underwear on...black pubic hair out there for all to see, ewwwww; I had to have her go to the "mall" in our facility to find some unclaimed white underwear to wear for the rest of the shift.
    Another time a CNA was wearing underwear with Garfield the cat imprinted on front, very visible under her white pants but at least this was better than pubic hair hanging out, LOL!

    I myself have seen too many transparent scrub pants.

    I didn't know they made printed scrub pants.

    At the facility where I work we gave the staff an option of colors to wear since 4,500 pt's. petitioned that nurses should wear a different color of scrubs from housekeeping. The RN's decided on black with a white stripe going from the shoulders to the end of the sleeves...they love the black because it makes them look slimmer , the LPN's decided to go with Turquoise with the same stripe, the CNA's,NA's & MA's wear brown, the other techs wear dark wine color, and housekeeping still wears Gray. BTW we gave each employee 5 new scrubs to begin with. All scrubs are solid in color, the pt.'s love it. Moreover, when the nurses want to put heir own style to the scrubs during holidays the use pins and everyone is happy

    Years ago, at a LTC facility I worked at, they got the bright idea for ALL staff, to wear the same outfit...it wasn't even scrubs...we had to wear khaki colored pants and maroon polo tops with the company name over the breast...it was hideous and we had no pockets!! All the cna's, nurses, housekeepers, and dietary had to wear this. It didn't last too long, thank goodness!

    I think I would have quit over that uniform.
