Sickly garments

By Susan Olasky

Next time you see a doctor or nurse walking around town in scrubs or lab coat, keep your distance. Betsy McCaughey, chairman of the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths (RID), says those outfits are crawling with germs, particularly Clostridium difficile (C. diff), a deadly bacteria that sickens nearly half a million people a year in the United States. The statistics she cites are frightening: “65 percent of medical personnel confess they change their lab coat less than once a week, though they know it’s contaminated. Fifteen percent admit they change it less than once a month. Superbugs such as staph can live on these polyester coats for up to 56 days.”

The concerns of McCaughey, a former lieutenant governor of New York, should be taken seriously. She writes that when scrub-suited people eat in a restaurant, they transfer the germs to the chairs and table. “You could easily pick it up on your hands and then swallow it with your sandwich,” she writes. McCaughey’s group advocates that hospitals provide laundered scrubs to all employees and forbid them from wearing the scrubs outside the hospital, citing the experience of hospitals like St. Mary’s Health Center in St. Louis and Monroe Hospital in Indiana as examples.   (Article from http://www.worldmag.com/2009/02/art_for_sale)
