The meaning of green: Why do doctors wear green scrubs?
Doctors, nurses, and any healthcare professionals will wear different colour scrubs depending on a lot of factors. This may be the type of hospital, the location or private vs public hospitals.
The colour green
Green may be a popular scrub colour due to its connotations. When we think of the colour green, we often think of nature, peace, and tranquility.
When we want to relax or refresh, we are likely to go outside for a walk. As we associate the colour green with nature; this refreshing and calming feeling we get from being outside is translated into our brains when we see this colour.
The green psychology
According to the American Psychological Association, the colour green could positively influence our relationships, our physical health, and our thinking.
This is why the colour green is often used in campaigns for better change, such as the environment, recycling, and health campaigns.
Why dark green scrubs?
Dark green scrubs are a popular choice among healthcare professionals, as they look smart, flatter many skin tones, and can disguise any stains better than lighter colours!
