Why do frontline Doctors and Nurses wear Scrub Caps?

Scrub Caps

In this digital era, we associate everything with a visual – a logo, trademark, or brand. Similarly, while scrub suits are becoming synonyms with healthcare professionals; the likes of Grey’s Anatomy and The Good Doctor are also introducing us to other medical terms like code blues and infection control. And how can we talk about infection control without mentioning ‘scrub caps.’

Now, as the head is not washed every day, causing dirt, oil, and grease to accumulate along with other contaminants, surgical caps help in keeping the area sterile and not allowing hair from the surgeons’ cap to fall into the operating field. Surgical caps help both the patient and doctor or nurse stave off infection by covering and holding back their hair. These scrub caps are also necessary to prevent sweat to roll onto the face and possibly contaminate the surgical operating area.

And let’s be honest, sometimes working in a hospital can be challenging - with all the blood, pus, and fluids that surround you; making you very grateful for the surgical cap when you try to accidentally scratch your head!
