Warm scrubs?

  1. Our dress code was recently changed to allow only scrub jackets to be worn. I work night shift and a lot of us would typically wear zip up sweaters/jackets (not hoodies) because it gets so cold at night. We even turn the heat up to the 80s but it doesn't get warm enough til almost change of shift. Scrub jackets absolutely aren't an option for me bc they do nothing whatsoever. I already wear thermal tops under my scrubs. Are there any thick/heavy/warm scrub jackets?? I've been looking but unable to find any, so I'd appreciate some help!

    Under Armour works well too for underwear - keeps you warm.

    The dresscode also says no fleece jackets... BUT since this is a scrub/scrub company, I wonder if I could get away with that lol.

    Maybe double up on your undershirts? I always wear 2 undershirts because I'd freeze. I hate lab coats because they make me look like a box so I layer under my scrubs.

    Maybe suggest a unit specific sweater? Kinda like what a lot of ERs wear???? It matches, looks great, not random, and builds cohesion?!?!? Plus you can be warm!

    Great idea. I'm going to email my manager about it. Thanks!

    why is the unit that cold? Is the heat turned down, with the "local" thermastats disabled? do the patients complain?
