I have always put it down to "Do As I Say, Not As I Do" syndrome.

It's probably not so bad as long as they change footwear. frown

Mind you, in some places I have been (overseas), the biomeds have been the most prolific "offenders" (mea culpa).

But the nice thing about wearing theatre clothes all day (week) is that you can simply bung them into the hospital laundry and draw out a fresh set. You know it makes sense. duck

An added plus:- no ties in the theatres.

If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
