Scrubs should definitely be provided! What are they thinking? Maybe you
should invite them to a procedure. j

	I was wondering if I could get some feedback from anyone as to what
your hospital policies are concerning appropriate protective attire when
assisting with autopsy procedures. Our hospital currently does not feel the
pathology department should be issued hospital scrubs but should instead
wear impermeable gowns or lab coats over the employee's clothing.  I
disagree. I feel that with the potential for exposure to various infectious
diseases, we should not have to wear anything that we would have to take
home and launder. I am curious as to what other institutions are doing.
Thank you.
