Welsh Heath Chiefs ban Crocs
Crocs have become the "shoe of choice" for many UK hospital staff because they are comfortable and easy to clean. Now Welsh health chiefs have issued an alert banning the footwear on the pretext it does not offer protection from sharp objects. Hospital authorities around the world, including in the US, Canada, Sweden and Austria, have introduced bans on staff wearing Croc-style shoes because of safety concerns.
