Student or Learner
could you please tell me what "scrub in" means in the following text? It is put in the quotation marks.
The employee shall "scrub in" to procedures in the lab on a daily basis
I found that "scrub in" is used when a surgeon washes his hands before an operation, but this is probably a metaphorical meaning. Maybe it should mean that the employee will take part in the procedures or supervise them.
Thank you very much.
Thanks for your reply, but I think this is not the correct meaning. It is one of the tasks of an account manager responsible for selling products, so I donīt think he is the one who carries out the procedures in the lab.
It's a peculiar use, but from what you say, it looks as if the account manager is being required to keep himself informed of what is being done in the laboratories in order to have any information that his clients might need.
