Life-Saving Surgery for a UK Patient After Assault was Canceled After She Objected to Trans Nurse

Things keep getting worse…

On Wednesday, a Christian nurse practitioner from Michigan was dismissed from her hospital position of 17 years because she refused to comply with gender-reassignment practices that were part of her required diversity training because they were against her religion. This led to an action against the hospital being filed.

The current story is worse.

A London, U.K., hospital denied treatment to an assault victim who specifically sought all-female medical care and was shocked when a biological male that “identifies” as “female,” wearing a blonde wig and makeup, was brought in for a pre-op examination that involved intimate procedures, as reported by The Daily Mail. After the request was made, Princess Grace Hospital told the woman that it was required to “protect staff from unacceptable distress” and canceled the procedure. 

The patient is a feminist and former lawyer, who was only referred to by the name of “Emma.” She had been scheduled for a complex colorectal procedure on the 10th of October. She had filled out a form prior to admission describing her needs, which included the single-sex accommodation, and had stated that she was not going to “use pronouns or engage with such manifestations of gender ideology.” Emma said to the Daily Mail:

I was not going to agree to fill in reams of hospital paperwork about my non-existent “gender identity” or give my pronouns to anyone.

The incident is being investigation by HCA, the parent company of Princess Grace Hospital. Emma stated that she was in urgent need of an all-female nursing team after the terrifying encounter with her biological nurse:

I began to wonder if it was just a coincidence that this member of staff with a ‘gender identity’ had made their presence felt to me in such an inappropriate way during my first visit. I began to suspect that I had been targeted because my patient records showed that I refused to use pronouns and wanted single-sex facilities, although I have no evidence of this.

Emma, after beginning to “panic,” she said:

Then I began to panic that men would be attending to my intimate care at the hospital while I was immobilized for an entire week following major surgery. It was a slow, dawning realization. I felt sick. Alarm bells were ringing in my head. I cannot describe the fear that I felt. I cannot rationalize it.

Also, she wrote HCA to emphasize that she believes that mixed-sex hospital facilities can be dangerous for women.

I do feel that the hospital should follow a protocol of offering ALL women patients single-sex nursing care. Please do not make life difficult for women when they are at their most vulnerable by forcing them into uncomfortable and embarrassing situations. I cannot believe that I am the first patient to have raised this with you.

The response from HCA was as reprehensible as one would expect given the facts up to this point. Princess Grace Hospital's CEO Maxine Estop Green wrote Emma back and informed her that the surgery was canceled, despite the fact that Emma requested the hospital continue with the surgery and suggested that they might have not understood her legal demands.

The hospital was willing to grant Emma an individual room, but it wouldn't grant her request for nurses who are female-only after her operation, insisting that they should ensure that the staff are protected (not the patients) from “discrimination and harassment.”

Emma's view of the entire incident could not be more precise:

I am still in a state of shock at this punitive and discriminatory reaction by the CEO of this hospital which specializes in women’s procedures. Everything that has happened is so off the wall and irrational. They will punish anyone who tells the truth. Women’s safety, dignity, and privacy continue to be sacrificed on the altar of this quasi-religion.

The former lawyer claimed that the actions were solely concerned with “appeasing men who claim a gender identity,” noting that she could not believe that this was taking place in the UK.
