UK National Health Service exempts Muslims from superbug prevention standards

UK Muslim doctors and nurses are to be allowed for religious reasons to opt out of strict NHS dress codes introduced to prevent the spread of deadly hospital superbugs while a Christian nurse has been banned from wearing a crucifix for ‘health and safety’ reasons.

The Department of Health has announced that female Muslim staff will be permitted to cover their arms on hospital wards to preserve their modesty.

This is despite earlier guidance that all staff should be ‘bare below the elbow’ after long sleeves were blamed for spreading bacteria, leading to superbug deaths.

The Department has also relaxed its ‘no jewellery’ rule by making it clear that Sikhs can wear bangles, as long as they can be pushed up the arm during direct patient care.

The move contrasts with the case of nurse Shirley Chaplin, who last week lost her discrimination battle against Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Trust, which said the cross she has worn since she was 16 was a ‘hazard’ because it could scratch patients.

Mrs Chaplin, 55, had worn the silver cross on a necklace since her confirmation. But the employment tribunal told her that wearing a cross was not a ‘mandatory requirement’ of her faith, even though Muslim doctors are allowed to wear hijabs or headscarves. Read more: UK DAILY MAIL H/T GC

  1. “…long sleeves were blamed for spreading bacteria, leading to superbug deaths.”

    Because anti-human rights UK ruling elite freedom-haters LOVE imperialist, totalitarian Islam, Muslims are allowed to spread disease, destruction and death to hated infidels with their KILLER Muslim nurse uniforms.

    Where are the Human Rights organizations to speak up for human rights for non-Muslims?

  2. Bonnie, I’m so glad you did this article on the Killer Muslim nurse outfit. With it’s dangerous, excessively long sleeves that cover half the hand, it is a KILLER. If tested for BACTERIA, the tests would reveal that inches of the ends of the sleeves are absolutely saturated with bacteria. Some of the bacteria would be very dangerous and very deadly.

    Devout Muslims wage many different forms of jihads against hated infidels.
    Rape jihad. Legal jihad. Stealth jihad, etc.

    This is BACTERIA JIHAD.

  3. The woman/man ? in the green radioactive suit would look better off at the Japanese nuclear power station ,NO OFFENSE TO THE JAPANESE, iF I have to go into hospital I will refuse all contact with these people under the and safety act. how can you see whether they are smiling at you for comfort or grinning at you in spite .

    • My comment is somewhat after the fact by a few months, but TEDJUSANT has hit the nail right on the head, as they say.When one is not just sick; but hospitalized; you’re going to be anxiously listening to often rapid fire explanations,eager to read body language & facial expressions, & naturally more sensitive to the attitudes of those entrusted with your care.In innumerable situations; especially with children & the elderly; it can be terrifying. I’ve worked in the field of health care for the better part of the past 35 years, in major Canadian hospitals & have never seen such outrageous ‘OR greens’.
