A Nigerian healthcare worker in the UK has been fired from her job and deported after she was seen praying for an elderly dying patient.
In a post shared on ‘X’ popular Nigerian doctor, @drolufunmilayo, said it is unethical in the UK for nurses to bring in religion while discharging their duties.
Olufunmilayo added that he shared the story to warn potential Nigerian medical practitioners relocating to the UK from praying for patients.

I just read the sad story of a Nigerian who came to uk employed by an agency to work as a carer 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.
