A nurse is facing disciplinary action for simply offering to pray for the recovery of an elderly patient. While the patient did not object, Caroline Petrie, 45, is facing sanctions or even termination. Petrie is a serial prayer. She was suspended previously for breaching the “code of conduct on equality and diversity.” She has now been suspended again.
England is pretty rigid on displays of religiosity. In Heathrow check-in worker Nadia Eweida, was banned from wearing a cross around her neck at work.
Petrie was praying for May Phippen, 79, in December, at the end of a home visit. When Phippen mentioned the offer to another nurse the next day, the nurse turned prayer narc and turned in Petrie — even though Phippen did not object to the prayer offer.
