Langdon v British Nursing Association  ET/1401946/99 (0 other reports)
It was not unlawful to refuse a male nurse work caring for a terminally ill elderly woman because there were circumstances in which the patient might have reasonably objected to a male carer in order to preserve her own decency and privacy, rules a Bristol employment tribunal (Chair: C G Toomer) in Langdon v British Nursing Association.
Mr Langdon is a qualified registered mental nurse and a registered general nurse.
