I mean, are you forgetting to take them off or don’t take them off because you don’t care? Or are you thinking that they make you look cool?
I see people people wearing these in Walmart and gas stations and it always makes me wonder.
EDIT: Many people sharing that they have gone out in scrubs. I’m okay with scrubs. Sometimes you just need to run quick errands before going back home. The shoe covers and OR caps are what I find weird.
EDIT: So I don’t see any clear negative responses and this has given me the courage to share some more thoughts. I personally don’t even like seeing people wearing that shit in the hospital cafeteria. If someone is wearing them back and forth from OR, they’re simply defeating its purpose! People don’t realize how easy it is to infect sterile area. Like the other day, the infection control team noted a nurse with cat hair all over her in the OR! If it was up to me, I would’ve benched her for 2 weeks and take nursing classes on sterile techniques all over again.
