Dear Elected Officials:

I work in healthcare. I spend a lot of time around doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals all of whom wear hospital scrubs both in designated patient care areas and outside. I feel that this is a public nuisance that not only presents a health risk to the the patients that they serve, but also to themselves. 

Every day when I am out walking/running/driving, I encounter healthcare professionals wearing scrubs outside designated patient care areas. I ride public transportation and there are healthcare professionals dressed in their hospital scrubs going to/coming from work.

Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals go out to lunch/return from lunch wearing their scrubs and return to healthcare areas to provide patient care. They are out in grocery stores, shopping malls and other public areas wearing hospital scrubs. 

I encounter healthcare professionals that have a duty to wash their hands before leaving the restroom but they come into the restroom facility, use it then leave without washing their hands or they turn on the water and do not use any soap then leave the restroom. None of these scenarios that I have presented above are consistent with acceptable infectious disease control healthcare practices.  

I applaud the millions of healthcare professionals for all of the hard work and dedication that you put forth to care for sick patients. But at the same time, these healthcare professionals contribute to the spread of diseases and infections.

Elected officials, I ask that you please create laws to protect not only themselves, but the patients to whom they provide medical attention to.  Healthcare professionals should ONLY wear hospital scrubs in designated health care areas and not in public areas. This will also reduce healthcare epidemics/pandemics.
