New Paper Scrubs for Vulnerable Patients
For safety reasons, an especially vulnerable group of patients who need observation at all times will now be wearing burgundy-colored paper scrubs, instead of blue scrubs. The purpose of this change is to help all staff easily identify at-risk patients. These scrubs should be used only for this group of patients.
Our inpatient PCTs wear wine scrubs made of fabric, not paper. If you see an unattended patient in burgundy paper scrubs, please contact Security immediately at x2500.
