Woman died after Muslim nurse refused to help as he was praying from the Telegraph

'An elderly woman was left on the floor at a care home for up to ten minutes because a nurse was praying, an inquest heard.

Alzheimer's sufferer Dorothy Griffiths, 87, was found sitting down after staff heard a bang and a carer went to the office for help to lift her.

But agency nurse Abdul Bhutto, who was in charge, said they would have to wait.

Carer Zoe Shaw told the Sheffield hearing: "It took between five and ten minutes because he was praying upstairs in the office on his prayer mat. A staff member told me we had to wait for him to finish."'

Is this a case of a nurse who'd rather pray than help the sick or a carer who was too in thrall to political correctness to interrupt a Muslim at prayer? Either way, it stinks.
