Growing concerns about hospital infections and the growth of bacteria resistant to drugs, the clothing of doctors, nurses and other health professionals - worn both inside and outside the hospital - focuses more attention and arousing concern.
In 2008 The New York Times published article about the study taken in 2004 by New York Hospital Medical Centre of Queens. Scientists have compared the ties of 40 doctors and medical students with those of 10 security guards. It found that about half the ties worn by medical personnel were a reservoir for germs, compared with just 1 in 10 of the ties worn by security staff.
In another study in Connecticut, hospital sought to assess what role is played by clothing in the spread of MRSA. Studies have shown, that if the doctor entered the room where the patient had MRSA, the probability that bacteria will get on the doctor clothes is 70 percent, even if a person has never touched a patient. “… We know it can live for long periods of time on fabrics.” said Marcia Patrick, an infection control expert in Tacoma, Wash., and co-author of the Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology guidelines for eliminating MRSA in hospitals.
Millions of operations are done in China every year, and a certain percentage of these operation are failed due to infection after operation. Among those failures, about 25% of them are caused by bacteria and germs of the doctor’s clothes and equipments due to insufficient disinfection and sterilization.
