Scrubs originally came from the surgeons. Surgeons wore their own clothing during procedures using no personal protective equipment. Eventually, their was a epidemic of people getting sick and the surgeons needed a way of protecting themselves while taking care of patients. Surgeons began wearing cotton masks and white attire in the operating room . The surgical green scrubs became popular in the 70's and today it is worn by healthcare staff in a hospital setting.
