Prison nurse suspended in 'exorcism' investigation

  1. An investigation is under way into claims that a nurse at a Northumberland young offenders' institution performed an exorcism on an inmate.
    The Prison Service confirmed that a nurse at HMP Castington in Morpeth had been suspended following the allegations.
    The Sun newspaper reported that the nurse performed the exorcism on a 17-year-old who feared he was possessed by the devil after hearing voices and having disturbing visions.
    After carrying out the exorcism, the nurse told prison bosses what she had done, the newspaper said.

    Hope this doesn't start a trend. If I have to preform exorcisms at work its gonna cut into my pt. care time I think

    Quick, who's crazier: the dude who thinks he's possessed, or the nurse who went so far as to "perform" an exorcism?!?

    I'm gonna have to be paid way more to to beat the devil (literally) out of my patients!!

    Yep when that's a requirement I will do any exorcisms on my yacht - provided by the hospital of course, and how do I get to my yacht you ask? Well of course the private plane I was given by the hospital and how did I get to the airport you ask......

    Had to scoot around the 'net a bit to find out what State this was in; had to admit to a small sigh of relief to see it wasn't in the US, but rather, the UK <grin>!!

    maybe the nurse thought she was helping in some bizarre twisted way. this dude thinks he's possessed...maybe he was acting crazy and stuff. so this nurse "exorcises" the demon thinking that if he thinks its gone, he'll get back to "normal".

    uhhhh.....puhlease.
