    This is an american nurse, can british nurses wear something like that? if not-why have americans allowed this despite MRSA fears over there too.

    I know muslims are allowed to wear long sleeves, but are non muslims allowed? despite the same degree of risk in transfer of MRSA, muslim or not.

    As far as I'm aware, long sleeves are not recommended, but they must be rolled up whilst on the wards and during patient contact.

    The revised rules, issued on March 26, make clear that staff can wear uniforms with long sleeves as long as they roll them up securely above their elbows to wash and when they are on the wards.

    It would have to be above the elbow, I have never come across a nurse wearing a long sleeved fitted top under a tunic.

    Most hospitals operate a "Naked Below the Elbow" policy, so no

    I have never heard that muslims are allowed to wear long sleeves? My local hospital has a lot of muslim doctors and all the one's I've seen had their sleeves above their elbows, rolled up or short.
