Some people can't distinguish the gowns and scrubs and don't understand their functions. So what are the main differences between surgical gowns and scrubs?
(1) The clothes with long sleeves, long robes, and small turtle necks, with the opening at the back, are worn with the help of nurses. These are called surgical gowns. The color is mostly light blue. The area inside the operating gowns that contacts the doctor's body is regarded as a clean area, and the area outside that contacts blood, body fluids, and patients is regarded as a polluted area.
(2) Surgical gowns must be completely isolated from a polluted and clean environment, so they are tightly wrapped. The scrubs are mostly V-neck and short-sleeved, which are the work clothes used by the staff in the clean environment of the operating room, which can be worn by surgeons, nurses, or anesthesiologists. Once you enter the operating room, you must be asked to wear these scrubs. The short sleeve is designed for operating staff to facilitate the cleaning of the hands, forearms, and the first third of the upper arm.
(3) After the operators wash their hands, the nurses will help them put on the surgical gowns. Some hospitals like to use color to distinguish different staff. For example, in Japan, anesthesiologists usually wear dark red scrubs. Clothes are all green in Chinese hospitals.
