A Nigerian healthcare worker in Uk on Thursday, 30 November, 2023 got sacked and evicted after she was reportedly seen praying for an elderly dying patient.
popular Nigerian doctor @drolufunmilayo on his ‘X’ stated that it is unethical in the UK for nurses to bring religion into their duties.
He said that “although it is not customary for nurses to pray for patients, it is expected of them to ask a cleric to perform any religious service on them, even if the patient requests that they do so.
Olufunmilayo said, the reason he narrated the incident was to warn Nigerian doctors coming to the United Kingdom not to pray for patients.
The doctor further said, “Praying for your patient is seen as an abuse of trust and misuse of your position. You are expected to simply do and focus on your job.”
