Washing those scrubs? - Page 7Register Today!
- Jul 16, '12 by turnforthenurseRNWash after each wear. Wearing the scrubs you wore yesterday is really gross! I was them in HOT water with only other scrubs, never with other clothes!
- Jul 16, '12 by Sweet_Wild_RoseNever. Not allowed to wash my own scrubs (that I don't actually own). When I did buy scrubs, they were washed every time I wore them, and I went with the Walmart $10 special.
- Jul 16, '12 by tothepointeLVNI love their scrub pants they are the only ones that seem to have that extra little bit of crotch length to cover my derriere.
- Jul 17, '12 by adoRNo2b2015Don't mean to offend anyone, but I'm wondering why is this even a question. Scrubs need to be washed after very use.
- Jul 17, '12 by tothepointeLVNBecause such a question leads to insight and debauchery. A besides some of us need something to feel good about.

- Jul 17, '12 by StephalumpQuote from Hay, RN12?I own so many scrubs it is shameful. I do laundry about once a month and I work full time (3 days/week). So you can imagine how many scrub sets I have.
I'm not even a nurse...I wear scrubs to school and pretend to do dirty work on manikins and I STILL wash after every wear. Not immediately, but as soon as my kids start complaining that they can't find any clean underwear.

Funny how obvious it is that these garments are gross and must be washed after every wear, buuuuuut not necessarily before we go out galavanting with the general public...you know....getting stamps at the post office...meeting buddies for a snack...pickin up some milk at the store.

I totally agree, Leo!
I work on the geri unit in a psych facility... it's like a mini nursing home.
Uniforms are not required, however, due to the fact that we have daily contact with stool, urine, c-diff, MRSA, VRE, spit, blood and whatever the heck else, we (the geri staff) typically wear scrubs.
We wear what we can toss in hot water and bleach!
So much for psych being a "clean" and "easy" job...
But... here's what's gross...
Some staff wear their street clothes (yuck) and some staff just don't seem to grasp the concept of microorganisms!
What I'm getting at is that I'm sure-- or rather, I know-- some of these non-scrub wearin', c-diff dipped, MRSA-mucked and pee polished people are sitting in a Chili's somewhere after work.
You just don't know what they've been into because they are not wearing scrubs!
