“Women [Muslims] training in several hospitals in England have raised objections to removing their arm coverings in theatre and to rolling up their sleeves when washing their hands, because it is regarded as immodest in Islam.”
Waiiiiiiit a minute here, are we to understand that personal Muslim beliefs outweigh proven medical hygiene practices? Are we to understand that they are willing to place peoples lives in danger due to their own religious sensabilities? How great is that?
“There is NO place in Medicine for people like these whatever their so-called “faith” dictates. Their willful violation of the basic hygiene required to perform one’s duties as a physician-in-training EXCLUDES them from the profession—PERIOD.”
When will this madness ever end? More here. *L* KGS
