The colorful, character scrubs that nurses wear at Children’s Hospital are here to stay.

A union representative for nurses at the hospital tells 7 Eyewitness News that nurses will be able to keep wearing the colorful scrubs indefinitely.

Last month, the union said Kaleida Health was going to ban printed scrubs and make nurses wear only solid colors.

At the time, Kaleida Health told 7 Eyewitness News that wasn’t true, but said uniforms are negotiated during labor agreements, and the current contract isn’t up until late 2018.
