What is your vote? Should a male nurse wearing a scrub top and has chest hair be required to wear a T shirt underneath in order to cover up the chest hair?... Read More

    Maybe it is a military thing but I think that t-shirts project a more professional image. I think that women should wear them also because when some of them bend over there are no surprises left at all. I admit to peeking without trying. I think that although the view is nice and makes a dull day less boring it is still not professional.

    men have hairy arms too. i sure hope no one would require long-sleeves.
    men aren't the only ones with hairy arms not to mention facial hair. if anyone knows any sikhs, they do not cut their hair or shave their face at all. some may consider their facial/head hair to be unruly and unkempt, but that's their religious right.

    what about people who don't shave their armpits or legs???

    Tweety, what the hell is a "manuscape" ? please.

    Actually I know it as "manscaping". Comes from the word "landscaping" Same idea behind it.

    cute eh?

    I voted for "required", but I think more along the lines of "a suggested uniform accessory" for the medical staff with a high chest hair line, or those well endowed.

    Although I DO think that printed underclothes should be outlawed when wearing white scrubs! :chuckle (Please do not wear your white scrub pants if you want to wear your heart print panties on Valentine's Day!) lol

    Lets just outlaw white scrub pants.

    Unless we're wearing shorts and tanktops, it really shouldn't pose a problem.

    (Until deodorant is forgotten.)

    Which seems to be pretty common as well...whole other thread though:uhoh21:

    The only kind of scrubs I'm STONGLY opposed to are those capri scrubs in any medical setting

    What few I have! :chuckle

    This thread has evolved to include hair on other parts of the body. No one, as far as I can read, has mentioned ear hair! Should ear hair be shaved off??? There's some people with some pretty long strands of ear hair growing from either within the ear or from the earlobes themselves. And, many times, those ear hairs are gray!!!

    And then there's nose hair!!! They can get long too! (A mustache, by the way, can "hide" long nose hair as they both grow and mingle together!)

    Hair! Got to love it!




    P. S. Oh yea. I voted that the tee-shirt need not be required. Honestly? I think it looks dorky when either a man or woman wears a tee-shirt underneath their scrub top. Just my 2 cents worth!

    No tee shirt because some of the rooms are HOT. Add the extras for an isolation room and it gets to be unbearable. So it is a choice about which you would rather not see: chest hair or sweat.
