Ohio hospi­tal drops panty­hose rule

Hospi­tal sys­tem also re­vises open-toe shoe rule

Cape Breton Post - - Classifieds/lifestyle -

An Ohio hospi­tal sys­tem has rewrit­ten its dress code to al­low women to skip the panty­hose while wear­ing dresses and skirts at work.

The Akron Bea­con-Jour­nal re­ports the Akron-based Summa Health sys­tem on Wed­nes­day no­ti­fied its 8,000 em­ploy­ees about changes to a dress code that had raised the ire of some women when it was im­ple­mented nearly two years ago by the pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The re­vised rules say fe­male em­ploy­ees can re­turn to wear­ing open-toe shoes.

A Summa Health vi­cepres­i­dent said in a memo that a fo­cus group of em­ploy­ees pro­vided feed­back about the changes.

Other re­vi­sions in­clude al­low­ing “pro­fes­sional” capri pants and small-stud­ded nose pierc­ings.

The hospi­tal also no longer re­quires that non-of­fen­sive tat­toos be cov­ered.
