What is the room where doctors prep and wash their hands before they operate called?

Like on Grey’s Anatomy where they wash their hands and put on gloves? What is that called?

Answer #1

Most hospitals don’t have a room like that - they wash their hands in the OR.

Answer #2

so they have a sink in there? but what is it called if they do have a room like that? sorry, I’m writing something, and it’s kind of important. thanks!

Answer #3

It would be part of the operating room - I don’t think it has a name…call it the prep room.
