Netherlands: Nurses Union says Muslims might not be suitable for nursing

If Muslim nurses have objections to washing the buttocks of male patients, they should ask themselves whether they're suitable for the job, says the Dutch Nurses' Association (V&VN). The organization recently wrote guidelines for conscientious Objections.

Francis Bolle of V&VN says that in general there are relatively few nurses of Muslim background working in hospitals. Bolle says that the reason might be that Muslims, and in practice it's mostly Muslim women, have difficulty with physical contact with patients, for example, during washing.
