In an earlier post I have criticized about the medical system in Kerala. However this post is not critisizing the uniform – just my observations. A long time ago (must be some years ago) I remember the nurses (ladies) in hospitals wearing white sarees. Though it looked good on them, I am sure it was not that practical. Over the years the nurses uniforms have changed. Now I see most hospitals letting them wear top (shirt like) and pants. But the color is still white. I am sure that they (hospitals) want the female nurses to look like angels but they should be more practical – white is not the best color to maintain. I feel some other colors should be used.
