About 6 years ago,I worked in a small hospital. With change in administration,the DON and the powers that be decided that all nurses except the male nurses had to wear caps. 95% of the nurses did not want to wear them, a petition was signed in support of not wearing caps. The result, The DON "cried" and we had to wear them. I worked in L&D, wore scrubs, this was not pratical and looked ridiculous. When I quit, they were still wearing caps, I don't know what they do now.
