What happened to Dr. Baker's ties?

 

Dr. Baker used to wear a long white consulting coat, a tie, and long sleeves to maintain a professional appearance in the office and in the hospital.

 

Recent studies suggest, however, that the long sleeves and tie may be a carrier for germs in the hospital.  The risk is so great that the British National Health Service will mandate a dress code for physicians in January of 2008 that includes no white coats, short sleeves, and no tie.

 

Over the course of the next few months you will notice the Dr. Baker will roll up his sleeves and wear no tie.  For some patients, this may require getting used to.  For some, it will appear too informal.  With the emergence of new multi-resistant bacteria, however, Dr. Baker will continue to take every precaution.
