Junior Doctors Fight Back Against Nurses

Spread the love

Junior Doctors’ Association, Ghana has backed the Manhyia District Hospital doctor, whose dad had a heated conversation on phone with a nurse at the facility.

The phone conversation, which has since been leaked, finds the doctor’s father, Alex Opoku-Mensah, who doubles as the Ashanti Region Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), apparently insulting the nurse.

The Ashanti Region branch of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) on Tuesday, November 29 issued a statement calling for the dismissal of Mr Opoku-Mensah, who has since apologised for the altercation.

“While we do not condone the actions of the father, it is imperative to set the records straight on the falsehood being peddled to bring the professional competence of the doctor into disrepute,” a statement issued on Tuesday said.

Jointly signed by President of the Junior Doctors’ Association, Ghana Dr Louisa A. Nkrumah and Secretary Dr Norbert Kipo, the statement said the information put out there about the doctor and her alleged wrong prescription “is untrue, according to the hospital management and records available”.

“We, therefore, entreat all media houses to pull down their broadcast concerning the alleged wrong prescription of medication and entreat the general public to disregard such allegations against the doctor.”

It insists doctors and nurses have had a cordial working relationship and “we will continue to work as a team to provide quality healthcare to our cherished clients and the people of Ghana at large”.
