The Emory Practice Council (EPC) voted to standardize scrubs for RNs across all settings within Emory Healthcare. The EPC consists of the Chairs/Co-Chairs from the individual hospital Clinical Practice Councils and have voted to move to navy blue scrubs.
The Chair for our operating unit at EDH, EHH and ELAC is Caitlin Flewellen, RN. The Co-Chair is Martin Renaud, RN.
Although, most RNs already wear navy blue in most of the settings at EDH, EHH, and ELTAC, there may be some areas where RNs are not wearing navy blue. The only exception to the navy blue for RNs will be settings in which surgical scrubs are worn.
If you have questions, please talk with your immediate nursing leader or Sharon Mawby, MSN, RN, NEA-BC -VP Patient Care Services & CNO.
