And Introducing the Non-Sterile NSVNHS©

Tuesday, May 3, 2016
This morning we noted the rather steep decline in the reputation (such as it is) of the British healthcare scheme. It now appears that there may be at least one reason that's thus far flown under the radar:

"Muslim nurses in the UK have now been granted the option of participating in medical operations without washing their hands."

This isn't the first time that the NSVNHS© has bowed to pressure from its Muslim providers:

"Muslim doctors and nurses are to be allowed for religious reasons to opt out of strict NHS dress codes introduced to prevent the spread of deadly hospital superbugs."

It's not exactly breaking news that clean hands and garb are key to stopping the spread of virii and the like. But it's interesting [ed: don't you mean frightening?] that the Brits are letting Political Correctness supersede basic medical safety.

On the other hand, dead patients don't complain, or continue to drain the already overburdened "system."
