Except the director didn't do that, there were two actor in the foreground of the sickbay shot laying face up, with their insignia exposed.
Or it wasn't about the uniforms at all but about obscuring the fact that all the Defiant crew that we see is being represented by a handful of extras.
Especially considering how visible the arrow is here

Now, admittedly, the arrowhead emblem is visible there, although that is an HD screengrab.
No SD capture of that part of the shot at Trekcore (the selection of captures is limited compared to the HD counterparts)*

Point is tho is that they weren't trying to hide the patch; it is right up there as a foreground element, just like the other arrows in the other shot posted earlier.
