OR uniform/scrubs

I am putting together my packing list and I need to bring scrubs, or will they be provided?  Do I wash them?  Do I need to bring an OR jacket? (ORs tend to be cold).

Thank you!

  • There is no need to pack scrubs.  These are provided on board and they are washed by the hospital laundry.  However, many people bring their own personalised scrubs - these you will need to wash yourself. With the air conditioning, the OR can get a little chilly so an OR jacket is a good idea.  There are not too many of these available on board so if you tend to get cold, it would be good to bring one along.

    Hi Jennifer

    Joan is correct above.

    But we also have FUNKY FRIDAYS! The OR team traditionally dress in crazy scrubs on Fridays, so if you have anything to contribute, bring it along!

    If I can find a picture, I'll post one for you.
