3.0 out of 5 stars NOT for a Scrub nurse or tech....., November 6, 2011
This review is from: Prestige Medical Nurse Cyber Gel Watch - Pink (Health and Beauty)
Speaking as an RN for most of my adult life, I think the NAME of this watch is very very misleading. In order to "scrub" for surgery or any sterile procedure, whether in the Operating Room or elsewhere, the RN, LPN or tech MUST remove all rings and watches. They are not considered able to to be cleaned by the usual scrub techniques. (Hands and arms are NOT sterilized in a proper scrub, merely cleaned very well. Sterile gloves are then applied in a special way, to keep the hand clean, and the outer gloves sterile.)

This watch which is called a "Nurse/Nursing Cyber Scrub Gel Watch" could lead some people, looking for a gift for a student or new RN or scrub technician, to think the person could wear this while "scrubbed in" as the phrase goes.

I never found my own regular Timex watch to be a problem with normal hand WASHING in between patients or in between task. But it would be removed, along with my ring, if I had to actually use sterile technique and "scrub" in surgery or elsewhere.

I just wanted to clear up any misconception.
