But, who has the courage to ask how long they've been wearing that lab coat?

Hospital scrubs carry germs that can kill you. Read it here.

This was another thing that bothered me last week at the doctor's office. The doctor was wandering the halls in his lab coat, and the nurse shoved my hand up the side of her scrubs to take my blood pressure.

When was the last time you saw a doctor wash his hands in your presence in the exam room? They think gloves protect them and you.

The article says you'd need to scrub the scrubs and lab coats with bleach to kill some of these resistant germs. Lovely.
