When you are a private duty nurse, sometimes you have the option of wearing scrubs or your own clothing. You may think that going to work in your casual clothes will be fun and more comfortable, but there are a few things you may want to consider before changing over to full casual attire.
Exposure to bodily fluids is a huge source of stains. These stains may never come out, even with the ‘peri-wash stain treatment’. Peri-wash is known to help remove feces and urine stains, some brands will even remove ink. But, do you really want to wear a favorite comfortable shirt or pair of pants to work, only to have body fluid stains end up on them? Most nurses do not.
