2 1 A U G U S T 2 0 1 4 | O U T P AT I E N T S U R G E R Y M A G A Z I N E O N L I N E S crubs have a habit of walking out of a facility. To keep from having to continually buy replacements, our hos- pital has outfitted the nurses and techs in the surgical depart- ment with 4 scrub shirts, 4 scrub pants and 1 warm-up jacket, and each garment has the staff member's first name embroi- dered on it. We're all responsible for our scrubs, for dropping them off into the designated linen service hamper at the end of every day and picking them up from the delivery to keep in our lockers. They're black scrubs, so they're easily distinguished from the traditional green ones our surgeons and anesthesia providers wear, and the names on them make sure that our surgical staffers don't get them mixed up and always have an available set to wear.
