Muslim patient and prayer : LUSENET : Transcultural Nursing : One Thread

If Muslim patient wants to get up and prey at 4:00 in the morning is that possible to fit it in the daily plan of the word or hospital? Do we have to provide a special prey room?

Response to Muslim patient

A special room is not needed however you should be aware of the orientation of the room to Mecca and the need for the patient for privacy from those who would stare. If the patient is able to pray kneeling a rug or carpet of some sort should be provided.
