One of the great perks of the ICU was having your scrubs provided, rather like the OR. We used to have green surgical scrubs available--no laundry necessary, just dump them in the clothes hamper. But now our hospital is adopting an institution-wide dress code, and the surgical scrubs are out. We are providing our own and washing them.
I went to the local outlet a couple days ago and purchased some scrubs off the men's rack. They were 3x as I'm a large fellow. They looked odd to me, but the scrubs available locally are cheap, so who knows? But when I got to work that night and went to clip my name badge onto the V-neck, I discovered that the right side of the collar crossed over the top of the left side. Women's scrubs!! I'd been had!
Most of the staff I talked to didn't even realize there was a left-over-right vs right-over-left gender difference in clothes. If the collar, button-holes, or pants fly crosses left over right, the clothes are men's or unisex. If they cross right over left, they are women's. This is a universal rule of clothing manufacture and, kept in mind, can prevent a typical bachelor from purchasing a women's blouse to wear with his suit.
Further invesitgation shows that my scrubs, made by "White Cross", are supposed to have a right-over-left design. Someone forgot to these "designers" about the rules. My name tag popped off while it was clipped to the wrong side.
