Medical Scrubs: A protective garment designed to be worn by doctors, nurses, and others in the operating room. These scrubs include the shirt and pants worn by those who scrub in for surgery.
The wearing of scrubs extends outside surgery in some hospitals and clinics. It is a fashion statement to wear scrubs outside, as to shop in a supermarket. Wearing scrubs has become a badge of the profession, like wearing a white coat.
This is complete medical wear easy to launder, and cheap to replace if damaged or stained irreparably. Colors are Sky blue and pink.
