Christian nurse takes crucifix row to tribunal


Hello Kathleen, I know my value judgements are showing, but never in front of a patient. I am not bothered by tattoos, I work in a Naval area so they are very common and do not compromise patient safety. I was concerned about all of the chunky jewellery, especially the bracelets which could compromise patient safety. I too trained two sets behind Florence so standards and values and professionalism were drummed into us. The person in question I was referring to was not a qualified nurse but an agency 'Carer' dressed up to look like a Nurse in a Navy Blue tunic, that was what I was concerned about, the misrepresentation. I agree about the lanyards. My badge is clipped to my pocket and is covered up if I do anything clinical by a plastic apron.
