Kenya Govt. Stops Nurses From Acting as Translators for Imported Cuban Doctors by katty : July 17, 2018, 08:19:55 PM
-Kenya Minister of Health CS Sicily Kariuki said nurses should be respected as professionals

Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki has raised concern over Kenyan nurses who have become translators for Cuban doctors instead of working with them.



Speaking on Monday, July 16, in Embu County, the CS said the nurses are professional practitioners and should stick to their roles.

“Nurses are also professionals and they should not be in the same room with doctors only to translate,” said the CS as reported by Citizen TV.
The Cuban doctors prefer to diagnose patients on their own but the CS insisted that the nurses should take on their roles as before.

“The work of nurses should be respected and for the universal health care agenda to be achieved they must feel part of the process,” said Kariuki.

The CS said the Kenyan care providers needed to be assured they can practice their profession without any limitations.

The sentiments by Kariuki came after the Cuban medics who arrived in Kenya early June, 2018, were received in different counties for work.

Language barrier has proven to be a challenge for effective working by the Cuban medics leading to them seeking help from other care providers.

Before the Cuban medics landed into the country, their Kenyan colleagues opposed the move arguing the country had many unemployed but qualified doctors.
