Christian nurse takes crucifix row to tribunal


I have worked in Healthcare for many years and have been in hospital as a patient. I am a Health and Safety Manager, I am not religious and Frankly I would not notice (or care) whether my carer or nurse was wearing a cross as long as the standards of care are not affected. As for the infection control argument it is unlikely that a cross on a chain is likely to come into contact with me or any other patient, the carer is unlikely to get that close. The size of the chain associated with a cross is unlikely to cause any damage to the wearer if it is snatched off, so there goes the 'elf 'n safety argument as well.
