Till nowadays, the nurses in the UK have been wearing the popular Crocs rubber shoes during the work. However, there has been a research proving the shoes to be dangerous.
Convenient and practical footwear is not able to protect the foot from sharp objects such as scalpels, needles, and scissors. Still, the nurses are dissatisfied with the ban since they have been wearing these shoes for many years.
Rubber shoes are banned in the USA, Canada, Sweden and Austria. Nurses wear fully enclosed shoes there. The officials insist that footwear is part of the medical uniform, so the issue of security is of primary importance.
