Self-reported awareness of recommendations by the Society of Healthcare Epidemiology of America on white coat laundering remains low (21%) among physicians from the internal medicine department. Factors such as modifying the laundry schedule of the hospital and personalization of white coats can be considered by hospitals to increase adherence to such recommendations to decrease the risk of health care-associated infection and may also improve professional appearance.
