Nigerian UK-based nurse reportedly sacked for Obvious Reason


A Nigerian nurse in the United Kingdom has been reportedly sacked by the hospital management after she was found praying for elderly patient.

The self-acclaimed online doctor, Harvey Olufunmilayo, disclosed this via his X handle, @drolufunmilayo, on Thursday.

This was disclosed to health workers, especially Nigerians who may be moving to the United Kingdom (UK) not to pray for patients.

It was gathered that it is very unethical for health workers in the UK to bring religion to their place of work.

The X user added that it is not customary for nurses to pray for patients, but they can ask for a cleric to carry out any religious service on patients, regardless of whether they want them (the nurses) to do so.

The statement reads

“I just read the sad story of a Nigerian who came to the UK and was employed by an agency to work as a caregiver for elderly people. She was assigned to care for an elderly patient who was dying, and she was reported for ‘praying for the client to get better’. Yeah. She got sacked and deported.

“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.”
