Clothing worn by healthcare providers can become contaminated with bacteria, however having nurses wear scrubs with antimicrobial properties did not prevent this bacterial contamination from occurring, according to a study published online in Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America.
UniverAs part of the Antimicrobial Scrub Contamination and Transmission (ASCOT) Trial, researchers from Duke sity Hospital, followed 40 nurses who wore three different types of scrubs over three consecutive 12-hour shifts, taking a series of cultures from each nurses’ clothing, patients, and the environment before and after each shift.
