    I’m a nurse and I’m concerned about the overall image of healthcare professionals. We wore white to distinguish ourselves, and it was bleachable! C-diff, MERSA, CRE and many others cannot be killed in a regular home wash cycle. Scrubs are usually colorful and have prints that don’t allow chlorine bleaching. For these two reasons, a return to white uniforms is slowly making progress. The Cleveland Clinic requires professionals to wear white. Helps with patient satisfaction surveys too! Patients and families are not familiar with the color-coded systems that many hospitals follow. White equates to professional, that’s why doctors prefer white lab coats.
