British nurse reinstated

A British nurse who was suspended for offering to pray for an elderly patient's recovery from illness has been reinstated by the North Somerset Primary Care Trust. In a statement issued on February 5, the North Somerset Primary Care Trust said that they recognized that Caroline Petrie had been acting in the “best interests of her patients” and that nurses did not have to “set aside their faith” in the workplace, and could “continue to offer high quality care for patients while remaining committed to their beliefs”. The Trust also said that for some people, prayer is recognized as an “integral part of health care and the healing process.”

We are, of course, pleased by this development and wish Mrs. Petrie God's blessing as she continues her service for Him.
