Female Muslim medics 'disobey hygiene rules'
Telegraph.co.uk ^ | Feb 3 08 | Julie Henry and Laura Donnelly

Posted on 02/02/2008 7:56:22 PM PST by camerakid400

Muslim medical students are refusing to obey hygiene rules brought in to stop the spread of deadly superbugs, because they say it is against their religion.

Women 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.

Good enough reason to kick them out of the country... unless they promise, on pain of death, to limit their practice of “medicine” to their own ilk!

Simple....muzzie doctors treat muzzie patients....no hand washing for you....no alcohol based disinfectants.....and lots of head and arm coverings to spread germs. I guess the mortality rate will go up a bit ....but those raisins are sooooo enticing.

"Exposed arms can pick up germs and there is a lot of evidence to suggest skin is safer to the patient if covered. One idea might be to produce long, sterile, disposable gloves which go up to the elbows."

Great I can see it now muslim doctors trying to shinny into a modest half body condom.

Some one has to draw a line these poeple will be spreading disease like its the 7th century all over again........oh wait thats the century they like.

There's a simple solution: Let them practice their religious sensitivities and their medicine in a Muslim country.

It they don’t like living in the civilized world, they are free to leave. They can go practice what they call medicine in their own filthy third world hellholes and let the rest of the world progress.

Of course, it’s not unheard of for modesty to take priority over human lives for them. If they value it so little, why the heck to they want to become doctors?.

All this is is another testing of the waters. Every once in a while they test just to see how far they can push us. Every time we cave, it shows them that they are just that much closer to takeover; the time is almost ripe.

Muslims give reasons they emigrated to the West to learn Western medicine, but don’t choose to practice it. More signs that the pretext for emigrating is just a front.

You know, in Egypt, they really do still have belly dancing; this is so much the opposite.

I know an Egyptian and when FIT TV has that show Shimmy about belly dancing, I thought, oh, they still don’t do that over there but indeed, he told me they still do.

It’s the exact opposite of this other story.

“CONTROLLING dangerous infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile is a top priority for NHS workers.”
Feb 2 2008 by Andrew Baldwin, Huddersfield Daily Examiner

COMMENT SNIPPET: “But irrespective of where the blame lies, the battle is on to curb the bugs.

Everyone has a part to play, visitors as well as hospital staff.

We all must observe hospital hygiene regulations as closely as possible.

Using antibacterial hand gel before entering a ward should become compulsory.”

I wouldn’t have a problem with an Islamic Medical Assn. if they followed federal health codes and didn’t seek to modify western medicine to adapt to Islamic law.

They won’t wash their hands properly in a hospital, but they insist on washing their feet in airport sinks.

Medical students and doctors scrub hands, finger nails, wrists and arms to elbows to lessen the skin bacteria we all have. Then they glove up to mid forearm, double glove even as they don’t want to get aids from a patient from a glove nick during surgery. This is basic for present sanitary standards. If Muslim women doctors are too modest to wash in front of males, they might ask to wash first or last when the males are not in the wash area. No wash, no working on patients.

I still don't get the "washing the feet after they fart" thing. I've seen several sources for it. It makes no damn sense!
