Iran: Hijab laws become stricter in hospitals
The head of the Majlis Health Commission said on July 23, 2017, that hospital rules regarding the hijab of nurses have to become stricter, according to the state-run Fanous news agency.
“Unfortunately when entering some hospitals we see nurses and other personnel who have mistaken the medical environment with a fashion hall or salon,” Bashir Khaleghi said.
“Of course the hijab does not only apply to women and men should also be careful of the hijab of their eyes. If women receive notices about their hijab and chastity in hospitals and medical centers, the attire of male personnel should also not be against the norms of the society.”
