Scrub Tops

Definition : Scrub tops are usually short-sleeved shirts made of light-weight woven (reusable) or nonwoven (disposable) materials and are designed to be worn by personnel and visitors in hospitals or other healthcare facilities. Scrub tops are mainly intended to provide a clean barrier in sterile and other clinical treatment environments such as emergency rooms, labor and delivery areas, and intensive care units. To prevent people from carrying infectious materials on their clothing into these environments, medical and facilities personnel, as well as visitors, are often required to change into clean scrub apparel before entering the area. Some healthcare facilities also require the wearer to change out of the used scrub apparel before leaving certain areas of the facility to help prevent the spread of infectious materials out of those areas. Reusable scrub tops can be laundered and re-worn multiple times while disposable scrub tops are typically worn for one procedure and then discarded.
