Describe the Ugliest Scrubs You Have Seen!

  1. 0
    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 black and white top from afar upon closer inspection reveals it's a skull and crossbones design .. OK it was around Halloween but seriously? As a patient I would get creeped ...

    Personally, I wish the RNs would wear scrubs that identify them apart from LPNs, CNAs or techs. They ALL look the same! Gotta freaking look for a badge that is not always prominently displayed .. but I digress ...

    I used to work with a male nurse who wore a "Betty Boop" scrub top!

    I can't stand seeing nurses who wear the low-rise, hip-huggers paired with the top that is way too short; especially when they bend over or are in other circumstances. (Not to mention with a visible thong). Yuk!

    That is just too funny

    A scrub top with large stallions on it-was horrible

    My hospital system has coordinated colors depending on what job you do. Nurses are white or royal blue, cnas/techs are hunter green, lab is maroon, and RT is black. I used to have alot of nice looking scrubs, and then they went to mandantory colors

    The hospital in our health system has gone to mandatory colors. My facility (LTC & Rehab) hasn't yet, but I think it's in the works. Yesterday I went to the outpt. lab to practice drawing blood, and I forgot about the color thing. I wore my new navy blue scrubs, and I matched everyone else in the lab! I was kinda glad--if I'd worn another color, it would've given me away as a trainee.

    Ever seen the three wolves howling at the moon Tshirt? Yah had a guy make scrub tops of it and wear them in the ER. Even a gunshot victim laughed once. I personally opted for black BDU pants and a hospital themed shirt. Wore that with my waterproof combat boot/sneakers. Very comfy wash off easy and kept the various ickies from leaking onto my socks.

    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.

    Pink, gray, black and white camo scrubs.........looked like a cat that had been hosed down with Pepto-Bismol. Or a box of Good and Plenty candies.
