This begs the question, though... in a hospital setting, on a psych unit, is it acceptable for nurses to wear scrubs
, if they aren't white? Or strictly street clothes? I'm sure it differs from facility to facility but, in your opinion, would scrubs, albeit colored ones, trigger white coat syndrome in this population?
I'm trying to remember the hospitals where I've done clinical, and it seems like the psych personnel all wore street clothes (I remember commenting that the staff on one unit looked like middle school teachers).
Of course, our psych clinical is this semester, so I guess I'll see.
