    I have to agree with the smartcarry. I have one that I use mostly around the house or when camping and not wearing a belt. It is a great system. When worn properly no one knows you have it and you can carry your gun and a spare mag. They are not expensive either.

    I carried a Glock 19 every day for over a year wearing scrubs. I just tucked it into the scrubs AND underwear for extra support then tighten the drawstring. NOBODY knew I carried. I don't know why everyone thinks it so freakin hard to carry while wearing scrubs. :dunno:

    Wow. You're right that it's easy to conceal in scrubs. Not so much about carrying without a holster.

    Nearly every option of carry has been discussed. I would go with Darkangel1846’s recommendation. Don’t ask anyone; carefully look through their policy book for employees and your state statutes. Two reasons for not asking others: (1) you don’t necessarily want others to know (2) they may tell you what they “think” is right, not necessarily what “is” right.

    When looking at the statutes, not only look for prohibited places, also look for restrictions applicable to mental health facilities and find out if the hospital you are working at has any on premises (check definitions carefully).

    Good luck! I hope the end result is that you can indeed carry.

    yeah misty I definately will be cautious about who I speak too, I hadn't thought about the mental health facility being located on the same campus. That may indeed throw a wrench into the equation.

    Same campus and same building may have different applications depending on how your statutes read and if you ever have to work in the same building.

    Of course, if forbidden in the employee handbook you may run the risk of getting fired regardless of what the law actually is. That would be a decision that only you can make after you weigh in all the possible repercussions. I, for one, won’t risk losing my job thus I won’t carry at work. However, if the conditions changed (example: someone I believe is unstable gets fired and they make threats on their way out) I would have to reconsider. It doesn’t mean that I will carry then, just that I would need to reevaluate the potential of getting caught versus possible harm.
