The apron is the dress code for doctors, while separate uniforms have been prescribed for nurses and other employees, according to sources. Dr RB Jain, senior professor at the Pt BD Sharma University of Health Sciences and president of the Haryana State Medical Teachers Association, said they were not against the dress code, but that instructing the 'UHS was an attack on its autonomy. Another doctor said: \u201cUHS authorities have yet to issue any directives in this regard.
