Sarah Kuteh is a Mother-of-three and a nurse in the U.K with 15 years experience. She was recently sacked by the management of Darent Valley hospital in Dartford, Kent, for  holding “unwanted discussions” with patients.

Sarah was accused of speaking about Jesus to patients and this upset some of them they reported. A patient complained that she was given a Bible that she didn’t want.

With the complaints  levelled against her, the Hospital claimed they gave her multiple warnings but she continued, this lead to her dismissal.

“We have a duty to our patients that when they are at their most vulnerable they are not exposed to unsolicited beliefs and/or views, religious or otherwise. We feel we have acted appropriately in this case,” the Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust said.

Kuteh who is contesting the decision explained her side of the story in the video below

“My job was to go through questionnaires with patients and an aspect of this is religion.

There is an aspect in each of these questionnaires where I have to deal with religion and a patient would have to state their religion – or not. This would always bring about the most discussions.

I discussed my religion with a patient and how I have found Jesus Christ and how much peace I have. Especially when patients have come to me really really devastated sometimes and I have had to reassure them based on the joy and peace I really have found with the Lord.

I want to challenge the decision as I believe it’s a punitive action, and I’ve had 15 years exemplary nursing. How could telling anyone about Jesus Christ really be harmful to any patient?”
