The human body is a major source of bacterial contamination in the surgical environment. Surgical site infections have been traced to bacteria from the hair and scalp of surgical personnel. The purpose of head covering use while in semi-restricted and restricted areas of the surgical suite is to protect both the patient and staff by maintaining a limited microbial spread. In order to maintain a clean environment and adhere to OSHA regulations, a head covering that completely covers head and facial hair must be worn as part of the surgical attire.
