Generally, Why do the doctors in operation room wear blue scrubs? Why not any color?
Aside from the fact that blue is a very relaxing color, what could probably be the other reason?

matt d
bad question thats just a holly wood thing they were diffrent things at diffrent places

I guess because pink and any other color would look tacky and white would get dirty really quick.

Taylor C
it shows equality

I think the color has to do with the hospital.

liverpool fan MAN U SUCKS
the had to choose one and scrubs are like a uniform you cannot have different colours just one specific one, and maybe the flipped a coin.

Red Nose Melbourne Boi
I think they colour coded them so people will know who is the doctor, who is the nurse etc.

Patrick B
Depends on the hospital. Different hospitals use different suppliers which have different colour scrubs.

Probably because blue is a more soothing color. But a light pink would be the best. Scientist tested on some elementary school kids and it turned out that red made them fight and all kind of bad things. A light pink made them al calm and quiet. A light blue like they wear is not distracting also. So yeah..

like in sports it identifies the players

they use green and Royal blue because they are anti red colors and they can see batter and they can watch movement of there hands.

Because that's a eye friendly color...and it gives smoothness to eyes...

Sudeep King of Scorn
Stains wash out easily from blue or don't show much on blue. So even the patients robes are blue in colour.

it depends on where you live sometimes its a gang color you cant ware or sometimes its a home team in a certain city. it can be any color and there is a reason for every color doctors ware at hospitals

thats the only reason
blue is the easiest color for the eye to adjust to

Ratty Fan
oh, good question!
I dunno really, maybe b/c you can see red blood on the blue much more clearly than some other colors...but it wouldn't explain why not white or green...

Rachel *
i think it just depends on what the manufactuer decides. that's an interesting question by the way.

Good question. It might have something to do with distinguishing their specialty, just as nurses used to wear white, but honestly, I'm clueless.

Eugenia S
The blue is a symbol of purity

my hospital wears pink and white lol beats me

Actually they wear green. They wear it because it is the opposite of red( the inside of patients which they have to look at for a long period of time) when they look up at the green it helps their eyes so that they can see better.

Originally, OR attire was white to emphasize cleanliness. However, the combination of bright operating lights and an all-white environment led to eyestrain for the surgeon and staff. By the 1950s and 1960s, most hospitals had abandoned white OR apparel in favor of various shades of green, which provided a high-contrast environment, reduced eye fatigue, and made bright red blood splashes less conspicuous.

Green Scrubs being worn by operating staff in an ORBy the 1970s, surgical attire had largely reached its modern state: a short-sleeve V-necked shirt and drawstring pants or a short-sleeve calf-length dress, made of green cotton or cotton/polyester blend. Over this was worn a tie-back or bouffant-style cloth cap, a gauze or synthetic textile mask, a cloth or synthetic surgical gown, latex gloves and supportive closed-toe shoes. This uniform was originally known as "surgical greens" because of its color, but came to be called "scrubs" because it was worn in a "scrubbed" environment.

[edit] Modern scrubs
Today, any medical uniform consisting of a short-sleeve shirt and pants are known as "scrubs". Scrubs may also include a waist-length long-sleeved jacket with no lapels and stockinette cuffs, known as a "warm-up jacket". Nearly all patient care personnel in Canada and the United States wear some form of scrubs while on duty, as do some staffers in doctor and dental offices. Support staff such as custodians and unit clerks also wear scrubs in some facilities.

because blood washes out of blue better than any other color, because blood is actually purple, which is a kind of blue.
