The facility where I work went over to all black scrubs
for nurses in March of 2011. We were all shocked! Patients even asked if we were in mourning for the first few months.
I had a procedure at another facility this week and the nurses were all wearing black. Said they started wearing all black scrubs Nov 1st of this year.
Yesterday, I had an eye exam and the opthamalic technicians were wearing all black scrubs and said they had been for about 6 months.
Apparently black is the new white for nurses? I don't get it. Black is depressing, patients don't like the black. Administration says black is professional. Don't get me wrong, I would never want to go back to all white but....black?
Anyone else wearing black?
