Nurses are not allowed to wear jewellery other than a wedding band and stud earrings it's part of the Uniform Policy.I thought they weren't allowed to even wear wedding rings? Maybe that policy has changed though, and quite rightly too, but I still can't understand why a cross worn under their uniform should be banned. What harm can that possibly cause to anyone?
At least Edinburgh's Royal Infirmary has a large notice on the main door requesting that people who have an infection of any kind shouldn't enter the building, although just how many visitors pay attention to it is another story. Also I doubt it'll stop out-patients from keeping their appointments, particularly, as I know myself, trying to get another one any time soon is a near impossibility - urgent cases probably being an exception.
