To the Editor:
While I have the utmost regard for my many friends and colleagues at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, I must point out that on the cover of the November 2015 issue of Anesthesiology, there appear to be several dozen of them wearing their scrubs outside the operating room, in violation of the regulations of both The Joint Commission and, I am sure, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. I will give all involved the benefit of the doubt and assume that they changed into new scrubs before returning to the operating room.
