Bibles could be removed from hospital bedsides in Nottingham


www.thisisnottingham.co.uk

Bosses at the Queen's Medical Centre and City Hospital say the Gideon Bibles are hard to clean and it wants bedside areas and patients' lockers to be tidy and "clutter-free".

The aim of the move is to reduce rates of superbugs such as Clostridium difficile and MRSA.

But church officials say Bibles only pose a "minimal risk" of infection.

Should they do this in every hospital?
I do think this is a very interesting subject, but is it going a little to far? surely if this is the case, they will have to get rid of every book, maybe they could laminate each page to make them easier to clean, just kidding.

I wonder how many superbugs can be found in a "multi-faith" prayer room?

The sooner the Stalinistic NHS is abolished the better

Strange i've never noticed a bible in the bedsides and i've been there too many time. If some one wants to read a bible or anybook i'm sure they can request it from a book room where a group of books are easy to manage and clean.

Also if this is what we are doing to help improve notthinghams hygiene i think they need some better ideas, because i hardly think its going to make alot of difference. Go back re-think of some better ideas please.

on the whole i think its more removing the bible from the area than hygiene ....

I disagree, the NHS is not Stalinistic, it is a founding principle of a healthy and fair society.

In other news...

The sooner they get rid of Bibles from hospitals, the better. I suggest they place them in the hospital toilets as emergency rations...

I can also understand that mental hygiene is part of the decision. Doesn't seem wise to confuse possibly unstable persons with a load of dogmas and gruesome stories from a fairytale.

I couldn't agree more. However it is standard practice for religions to target people in vulnerable situations such as being in hospital...

If you doubt people's ability to chose then that's your problem. How many people honestly convert because there is a bible in there?

MRSA can't really survive outside the human body too well. It needs human fluids. When my school had an outbreak of it, books were not touched.

Bibles are there. Live with it. It's no different than an ad on the door. It's advertising their faith.

No, they don't convert because a bible is present - they convert because of the neuro-linguistics practising soul-thieves that carry them. Why should ANY faith be present in a hospital? It should be a place for universal love, care and positive thinking. Not dogma, irrationality and sillines.

No, I wont live with it. I regularly take bibles away from hospitals (when I'm there) and give them back to churches. I'm not allowed to advertise for free in my local hospital, why should Christianity be allowed to? Grossly unfair. Typically Christian.

Finally, seems they try to put Bibles everywhere, to shove it down our throats.

So no bibles, but I have to constantly be surrounded by woman in full burkas? What country am I living in? It resembles America less and less by the day.

What part of America do you live in? You seem to know everything about America. But you forget to mention there's religious freedom here and that this nation was built by immigrants.

I'm not sure what to say to this. I think there's a word that sums up my feelings on your post...

"PWNED!"

Nice one.

No we wouldn't, freedom of expression means the right to have freedom FROM religion, why would we want any public place filled with religios books when there are people who want to be free.

If you want to read your bible, read it, don't store it in public places, no other book has the right unless it is helpful, like a medical reference book.

Im not a big bible/God man myself, but i know some people are very big on there belief's, i just think they could be tackling other problem which the NHS has, such as minor mistakes. eg
SHODDY NHS equipment failures have caused FORTY deaths or near-fatal dramas in the past year.
Healthy lung removed by mistake (more on this) Lung Mistake
Thats just a few things, Patients’ lives are being put at risk because of poor practice in basic patient observations.
so the bible is the biggest thing they can do? come on!

They could be, and that's the distraction religion causes.

Lets pray to "GOD" for change, instead of getting up of your knees and making a change, demanding change.
