A nurse in Britain is fighting for her job after being canned late last year for offering to pray with patients before surgery, according to a report in Heat Street.
RN Sarah Kuteh lost her job last year following complaints from staffers, who claimed she talked more about religion than procedures and told some patients that praying might help them.
The Christian woman was fired “for gross misconduct” from Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent.
Kuteh has refuted the allegations and is now bringing her case to an employment tribunal, claiming she was unfairly dismissed. She has 15 years of nursing experience.
“A nurse without compassion would be unworthy of the name. On top of performing her immediate duties, a good nurse would try and find kind words to say to her patient,” her lawyer Pavel Stroilov said to the tribunal.
