Hospital etiquette; names

Hey all. Having trouble finding out something this specific:
Would it be reasonable to assume that a staffer in a hospital (university, psychiatric ward if it matters), would on their nametag have only their first name? Or would it be first and last? I've been in the hospital, but I can't remember this. I know doctors had their surnames, but I don't remember this regarding nurses/orderlies.
