This new study funded by the Center for Disease Control is a real wake-up call. Researchers collected samples twice a day in the ICU at Duke University Hospital. They found disease-causing germs.

This gram-negative bacteria almost always infects patients after a visit to the hospital, as it seems to be particularly at home on medical equipment in patient treatment areas. Infection by this bacteria can result in a number of serious ailments, including an infection of the bloodstream, infection of any open wounds or surgical sites, or the.

  • hi, I find your tutorial really helpful. It’s my first time to try and sew scrubs with my wife. We’re both “trying hard” DIYers and we have not really worked with patterns much. Do I need to add allowance all around every piece of the pattern? I am just starting to put together the front and the back facing. I added allowance all around each and it doesn’t look the same as what you have? Any advice you can tell me before I waste a lot more of fabrics?;)
    Cheers…

  • great video! love the sleeves, only the pattern i download is all one piece for sleeves and front/back. is there somewhere i can find the ste in sleeves. thanks a million

  • What about stethoscopes? Many nurses drag their stethoscopes all over the place (including the cafeteria) and leave them on tables, furniture, etc. without cleaning them.

  • Is it okay if I use jersey fabric? I’m about to sew scrubs for a friend and she doesn’t like the kind of fabric that is usually used to make one.

  • Excellent tutorial, I have been sewing professionally for over 50 years and was interested to see how scrubs are done having cut out and made up 14 sets this week.I did like the tutors attitude to getting the job done too as she is right they are needed quickly. I thought the sewing machine was quite awful though, tinny, and appeared to wobble and make the tutors work quite difficult.

  • It wasn’t mentioned whether that neck piece is sewn all the way around however it looks like you’ve overlocked it so I’m not sure whether I need to attach the facings together and then sew round or not?

  • Love your tutorial, my friend is working in allied health and wears normal clothes but she wants something to wear over the top. I am a patchworker and don’t sew clothes but watching this think I could give it a go. From Melbourne Australia ���� stay safe everyone

  • Perfect Once again really clear and easy to follow. A BIG thank you. I love your video s. Considering I hate sewing garments your guidance has helped me overcome my dislike of garment making.

  • Thank you for the beginners guide, I was worried about starting these and getting stuck, but you have given me confidence. Would always rather have stuff over-explained!

  • I’m really impressed that as a beginner I can follow this. Thank you. I’m 10 mins in and have a question…
    HELP I don’t have an overlocker so am using a zig zag stitch.  
    Does it matter if it’s a single stitch for each needle movement or if it pierces the material 3 times every zig zag?
    I can’t find a way to use the single zig zag without the machine ‘eating’ the material edge. please advise polite suggestions always welcome…

  • Yes. Yes. It would be awesome if you can show us different types of neckline and pocket and hem, please. Your demonstration is very clear and easy to understand. Thank you for sharing.

  • Hi Tree,

    You make it all look so easy but I think I can’t do this because of the sleeves. Surely it would be easy to have a grown on sleeve? Also would you need to cut the sleeves on the bias? I’m a beginner quilter so it’s all alien to me including the 1cm seam allowance! Oh well, many thanks and love your dress.

  • Hi Tree. Another fab tutorial thank you. I’m making my first set but am struggling with marking the sleeve notches as there are no markings on the pattern. Can you explain how you find where to botch please.

  • I live with my parents and my dad high risk! I work at a grocery store but I’m planning return to work. How can I pervert bring home germs and i work carts ��

  • I think this is the best sewing video I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much. I’m not a novice but wanted to find the best way of sewing scrubs; I’m making a set for my niece. I love the way you inserted the sleeves too, think I’ll always be doing that from now on. And the pocket tip was very good, will make them so neat. I’ll be back for the trousers video �� I have subscribed.

  • Thank you so much for this great video! I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough sewing knowledge to make scrubs, but found your instructions clear and straightforward so far, so good! I’m not sure how much space to leave between the Vee neck and the top-stitching, though, is there any set distance, please? Thanks again for making this freely available ����

  • This is brilliant Tree. We’re using a pattern with sleeves already attached so it’s much easier. Thank you, you explained this so well ❤️

  • If you use a pattern with grown in sleeves, how do you clip into the overlocked side edges under the arm to ease the curve? Thanks for such a good tutorial. ��

  • Hi Tee, just a quick question. I used iron on interfacing on neckline. After the 3cm topstitch that pattern advises there is still facing with the interfacing that is not enclosed. Will this wash ok or am I meant to trim it back to the 3cm stitch line?

  • I am looking to buy a new sewing machine as mine is 40 years old and noisy! I already have an over locker. Can you tell me what your Janome model is? I can’t quite see the number. Great tutorial!! Having made nearly 500 bags. I’m now going on to scrubs!! Your tutorial is very easy to follow. I made one set of scrubs on Friday but nearly gave up because of the neck facing! I will follow your instructions on the next set!!! Many thanks ������

  • Great advice. Love your channel by way. I didn’t know where to post this but here we go. Any recommendations on online nursing school? How about WGU pre licensure? Reason I ask is because my three kids are 3 and under so putting them in day care is costly
