How to tell who's who in the Emergency Center

Emergency Center staff wear different colored scrubs. This isn’t a fashion statement. There’s actually a color code that tells you who’s who:

  • Navy blue scrubs or professional clothes – provider (physician, resident or physician assistant)
  • Royal blue scrubs – nurse or paramedic
  • Maroon scrubs – emergency room technician
  • Green scrubs – emergency department clerk
  • Beige scrubs – medical student
  • Professional clothes – financial counselor, case manager
  • Black uniform – security
  • Black or gray scrubs – housekeeping
  • Teal scrubs – personnel in surgical specialties
