Geez, I volunteer @ a hospital where I have seem more than my share of ugly scrubs! Interested to know what's the ugliest you have seen out there. I have 2 that come to mind: (1) NASCAR race cars .. everywhere, ugh! (2) A... Read More

    I vote for a pair of lime green scrub pants that were so tight they could have billed for performing a colonoscopy, exposed thong, and a neon orange shirt. Did kind of feel sorry for the "sleeping off the drunk-n-disorderly patient she cared for; they were really very bright scrubs.

    The worst (?) weirdest scrub combo I have ever seen is this -- there is this pharmacy tech where I work. He is obviously a pre-surgery transexual (he is growing his hair out, has been growing boobs, he wore a fairy outfit on Halloween) -- and he wears the most gosh-awful stuff. There is nothing that looks worse than pink scrub bottoms and a tweety bird top on a dude.

    When I worked in the nursery/NICU several years ago, the NURSES voted on a pinkish-orangish scrub combo that make almost everyone look like they were overheated and fixin' ta puke.

    I don't know if it counts for worst scrubs but a lot of women at my LTC facility like to wear their pants as capri's. For some reason I find this very unprofessional. Also, I really wish I could find a pair of scissors for all of those that bend over and share their thongs with us. Ugh!!!

    LTC's can be hot as heck in the summer months, considering that on the most humid 100 degree day, the heat will be still cranked up for all those "cold" grandmas!
    I don't blame the staff who are sweating like pigs, literally running running running!
    As long as the capris are clean, conservative and in good condition, I'd give them a break... otherwise they're rolling up the pants over the knees... which looks worse.

    And I'm with you on the thong... I'm keeping the scissors ready.

    Funny thread

    BUT.....

    These are the reasons some of us approve of color coding. We all know people like this.....

    I'm all for color coding - but I don't think ANYONE should have to wear white. 'course where I work, everyone wears whatever they want - so we have to work hard to look better than housekeeping. Seriously.

    A nurse at my facility wears shorts every single shift. Even in the wintertime.

    I recently saw a scrub top that failed at being either pink, lavender or mauve and existed only in the Unwanted region of the color wheel. It tried to redeem itself by being covered in a multi-colored print that can only be described as a tic-tac-toe box drawn by someone on an acid trip.

    Crayola-red pants completed the outfit.

    Four patients coded that day. Seriously.

    At the childrens' hospital...saw a staff person in the elevator wearing a printed top that said, "SEXY!" all over it. Really? Inappropriate!

    There is a tie in my book- I saw a set that looked like 'denim' and a scrub top that was camouflage....
