Do student nurse uniforms increase infection risk?
What do you think? Do you have enough uniforms to ensure they are clean every shift?
Last week at #SNTtwitchat you told us how few uniforms you are issued with and how difficult this makes it to have a clean one every shift. We were surprised to hear that many of you have the same set of uniforms throughout your training, unless you pay for replacements out of your own pocket.
- How many uniforms are you issued with? Is this enough?
- Are you able to wear a clean uniform every shift?
- Should it be up to students, universities or placements to ensure student nurse uniforms are suitable?
- What benefits would there be to wearing scrubs rather than uniforms?
