Rumor has it that the hospital I'm in school at is going back to white uniforms, for just that reason. But they are still trying to determine what to use for caps, since their are male nurses nowadays. Apparently the anything-goes in scrubs
fashions has reached the epitome of casual, plus made it too difficult to see at a glance who is whom. We students and out instructors are more professionally turned out in appearance than the floor nurses, and the new administration decided to do something about that.
Edited: LOL! Student nurses were nasty even back then, hehe! And gosh, that truck is so OLD! ;-)
It may seem "old" today, but the ambulance and truck were state of the art for the 1970's. Read some of the comments. *LOL*
As for the snarky nurse am going to have to see if the entire episode is available somewhere to find out what her problem was. *LOL* More likely than not she had a thing or maybe a fling (or wanted to) with the EMT and it didn't go as planned.
Forget going after doctors, then as today many ER nurses dated and or married law enforcement, EMT's, firemen and so forth. Those men were/are often at the ER for various professional reasons and when things are slow (yeah I know, *LOL*) allot can happen over a cup of coffee or bottle of water.
As for the uniforms, it really is a shame so many suppliers have either gone out of business and or mainly switched to producing scrubs. There used to be so many wonderful or cute white uniform dresses, skirts and tops, and finally pant-suits in nice quality cotton or cotton/poly blend. The later wasn't the cheap stuff you find today that turns grey after just several washes either.
