I'm not sure but I think they should its clean,crisp and neat.In hospitals today they all look dirty and sloppy its sad that todays nurse seem to have no pride its just another job all about the money.

I don't know but I hate it. My dad is in the hospital and I can't tell an RN from an LPN from an aide from the floor washer. They all wear the same type of scrubs and their badges are turned inward, so I can't read their name or position.It's very frustrating, at a trying time.

Agree with everything in this thread. Most nurses work hard and have a difficult job; they earn their money and then some. But, the pajama like "smocks" and pants that they wear are indeed often dirty and completely indistinguishable between the custodian and the healthcare professional. Utica's hospitals are among the worst I've seen on this front. Uniform standards seem more pristine at local McDonalds and Burger King outlets than in our most precious healthcare settings. Unacceptable.

Blue scrubs would be appropriate for nurses on the floor.

i asked a few because as who the hell is who posted you can't tell a nurse from a floor washer. most do not know and some say at least it is cheaper and saves time on laundry. one nurse got a bit ornery when i asked and said it was because many felt a nurse's uniform was subservient. i liked it when they wore the nurse's uniforms and hats. i felt better just seeing a nurse walk by. i respected nurses more then. from what i have seen scrubs may have bit th nurses in the butt. you now see an rn changing sheets and bed pans which was something the lpns or aides were called to do before.

If I got to wear those scrubs to work every day, I might be daring and go with no unders every now and then ;-)

Knock it off!
Enough with the nurses!
We have to keep our focus on the drug bust later!
Are you wearing your jacket rookie?

Not everyone is who they seem to be.
Not Nurses, Nurses Aides, or Cops.
We're all undercover for a reason.

Just so you know LPN's are nurses as well..they are licensed and RN's are registered its a difference as to what they can perform document wise and certain procedures...just so you know

for the most I do not see LPN's or RN's chnaging bedpans and sheets...even if they do its nice to know that they work as a team to help eachother as they are often short satffed and that would be why they are doing an "aides" job...the job is taking taking care of the patient no matter what yuor title..unless you title is idiot
