Scrub Suit and Locker Access
In the Department of Surgery at Health Science Centre (HSC), OR Scrubs Suits are obtained through a secured vending machine (PYXIS ScrubStation).  Users needing to access scrubs will have to be set up in the Scrubstation’s system before using the machines which are based on a credit system. You are provided a bank of 3 credits (1 credit = 1-top and 1-bottom).  All 3 credits can be taken at once or one at a time.  Soiled scrub suits are not to be placed in any soiled linen receptacles, they must be returned to the PYXIS machine or you will be charged.

All residents, medical students must complete an application form to acquire access to this machine. Forms are to be completed and faxed to the Surgery Education Office- 787-4837 for authorization.  Please keep in mind, access to obtain a Scrub Suit  through this system takes approximately 48 hours.
