I also work in healthcare. I don’t wear my rings to work. I need to be able to wash my hands a billion times a shift and glove up/off as well without things in the way.

I’m a teacher, so yeh, I don’t ever have to take mine off at work. But if I were you, I would maybe pin it on the inside of my scrubs like.. inside the pocket. So if it would happen to come unpinned, it would just land in your pocket instead of just plain falling off.

@syrupNhoney:  

                 It all depends on place of employement and their policies. I usually just wear my ring on a chain around my neck but if there is a no jewellry policy, than I would either not wear them or do as other have said and safety pinned it in an area I could reach it so I knew it was safe.  I would rather leave my rings at home than leave em in a locker at work.

@Peffy:  Pinning it inside the scrubs is a good way to lose it someday.

You get in a hurry, or someone pages you or calls you at just the wrong minute and you toss your scrubs in the hamper and go on your way.  Do not attach a ring to scrubs, attach it to you…either on a chain around your neck, or pin it on your underclothing.

I am a NICU nurse and only wear a plain band to work.  On the off chance I have my diamond rings on, I put them on my necklace, which seems to be the most popular option.  I’ve never had a problem with scratching.  There are specific types of ring holder necklaces available on Etsy and through a website called EmilyC.com.  They range in price from $30 on up and hold the rings so they are less likely to scratch.  I have seen people tie their rings to their scrub pants or safety pin them and I don’t think it’s as safe as the necklace option because I would know if my necklace came undone.

@fascinated:  Ha, see! I don’t know anything about it. I was playing off of what someone else said about pinning it to the scrubs.

I’m a nurse. I work in 2 departments. In one unit I wear my ring. The other is an operating room, where you cant wear rings. I leave my ring at home in the box those days when I’m in the OR. I don’t trust putting it on a chain, plus it would have to be a platinum chain.

@syrupNhoney:  I dont wear it to work…I work in direct patient care, so I dont chance it….I wear a plain silver band on my ring finger and put my ring on as soon as I get home….I dont want to loose it, damage it, have it rip my gloves so i get exposed to something gross on my hands, give a patient a skin tear or anything like that….so to avoid a problem i wear a plain berricle band that i dont care if it gets lost or i forget to put it back on….and its gone forever….I would never risk that with my e-ring!

I’m a nurse and I NEVER take my ring off. We bought smaller to accommodate that,but I know that they design necklaces that hold your rings..it’s got like a clip part

I never wear my ring to work.  I’d hate to think of all the bacteria that would grow in there. :/
