The director at that time stated that AORN recommendation was that cloth hats were not a good idea. Even though AORN would not come right out and state this was forbidden my director changed the department policy so she got her way. I keep my hair very short and the bouffant slides all over the place. I was willing to even wear the bouffant over my cloth but was told no.
