Abstract:
As medical care professionals, we have found that numerous approaches have been taken to reduce the cost of both goods and services related to providing care. However, not enough approach has been geared to protecting and providing healthcare workers with better and more secure uniforms. This motivated us to modify the current medical unisex scrub shirts and pants to have an inner lining which provides warmth, durability, and decreases the transparency of the garments.
