More Muslim Women Medics in U.K. Refusing to Follow Hygiene Rules
Fox News ^ | 02-03-08 | Fox News

Posted on 02/03/2008 7:26:33 PM PST by NoKoolAidforMe

Muslim women working at U.K. medical facilities are increasingly refusing to comply with the basic hygiene standard of rolling up their sleeves when their washing hands, it was reported. According to the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph, female workers are ignoring Britain's Department of Health rules requiring medics to be "bare below the elbow" because they consider showing any skin — outside the hands and face — immodest. The guidelines were put into place to stave off the spread of infectious killer bugs like MRSA and Clostridium difficile, which have been implicated in the deaths of hundreds of hospital patients, according to the paper. Hygiene experts said the standard should hold for all workers— even if it goes against their religion. "I don't think it would be right to make an exemption for people on any grounds. The policy of bare below the elbows has to be applied universally," Dr. Mark Enright, professor of microbiology at Imperial College London told the Telegraph. Some fear the enforcing the rules will open the door to lawsuits charging discrimination against female Muslims working within the medical professions. The Islamic Medical Association, for one, has issued a statement that "no practicing Muslim woman — doctor, medical student, nurse or patient — should be forced to bare her arms below the elbow," according to paper.

And these are the same people who claim Islam has given so much to science.

If they can’t follow aseptic technique then they cannot be considered incompetent health care professionals and should lose their licenses.

Why are these women allowed to work in this job? If it is a condition of employment, they can either follow the rules or go out the door. No firing is necessary, just tell them that if they cannot comply with basic sanitation rules, they will not be allowed in the workplace.

They’re offended when asked to roll up their sleeves and wash, think how offended they will be when people refuse to be treated by them.

It’s the UK. They can’t fire them. They have to make them citizens if they’re not already. Then they grant them a special sharia-compliant exemption to not scrub thoroughly. If the patient gets an infection, they must have brought it into the hospital themselves.

Sounds like the patients have no rights (e.g. to not be infected by the help) in the UK.

End of story concerning socialized medicine.

"More Muslim Women Medics in U.K. Refusing to Follow Hygiene Rules"

Then they should find another vocation. There is absolutely no reason that they should be allowed to endanger the health of patients.

The solution is simple - muzzie medics for muzzie patients. Maybe they could cut drug costs, too, by using tradional treatments of snot, spit, dung and whatever else is holy to the lunatics.

“think how offended they will be when people refuse to be treated by them.”

Do you really think that will happen? This is Britain. This socialized medicine. A refusal to be treated by a Muslim could get you 5 to 10, probably.

An ancient, proud civilization, being destroyed by it's own stupidity and infestation by a primal, backward culture. God help me, I'm actually beginning to elevate the French over the Brits in the torch-bearing panthenon of Judeo-Christian society.

This is the UK. The medical establishment will bend over and take it. Of course, their religion will compel them to keep the concessions coming—this is only the beginning.

“And these are the same people who claim Islam has given so much to science.”

Well, they have. Sorta.

They did manage to translate all the discoveries and inventions of every culture obliterated by their aggressive imperial expansion and assign them to religiously acceptable muslim inventors.

If not for that, think of how many ancient languages would have had to be learned to get access to all those old goodies?

Islam has given NOTHING to science - any “contributions” were from violently conquered peoples living as slaves.

Read The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam for more details.

Islam doesn’t allow science or philosophy. The former is not allowed because discovering any universal rules like pi requires “chaining Allah”, which is blasphemy. And of course, philosophy is not allowed because the Koran is the only philosophy needed.

Just always remember to carry a slab of bacon with you if your ever in England. That way if you wind up in a hospital, the muslim medic won’t touch you.

Yes, but now they are open about their takeover of the west. They want to kill the infidels any way they can. Hi-jacked airplanes, beheading, suicide bombers, anthrax, MRSA infections, refusing to take off their headscarves for driver license photos, etc.
