MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - WVU Hospitals is considering replacing doctors' white coats and ties with scrubs.
Vice president Matt Loos says the proposed change in attire is an effort to control the spread of infections.
Loos says the neonatal intensive care unit has seen a dramatic decline in patient infection rates since a similar policy was implemented.
The Dominion Post reports that Loos discussed the proposed change during a WVU Hospitals Board of Directors meeting last week.
