Nigeria: Doctor assaults nurse at Abaji General Hospital by katty : November 15, 2016, 09:02:53 AM
Medical services were disrupted at the Abaji General Hospital after a medical doctor allegedly assaulted a nurse of the hospital recently.

A source, who preferred anonymity, confided in our reporter yesterday that the nurse, Habiba Gana, complained to the doctor about the manner he handled a woman in labour.

He said the doctor did not take the criticism lightly, as he started beating up the nurse.

“The nurse asked the doctor to be more cautious in handling the woman who was in labour pains for hours but the doctor got angry and pounced on the nurse,” he said.

The development which started at around 5a.m. before the arrival of some personnel at the hospital crippled the day’s activities leading to confusion, the source said.

Our reporter also learnt that after the fracas, the FCT chairperson of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM),  Deborah Yusuf, who led some executives of the association to the hospital ordered its members to down tools till justice is done to their member.

The source said the association would not tolerate ill treatment of any of its members on line of duty.

It was further gathered that  the Federal Capital Territory Health Secretariat has since visited the hospital and assured the nurses that it would look into the matter.

Our reporter reliably gathered that the said doctor has been asked to report at the FCT health secretariat in Abuja daily, for six weeks pending the conclusion of investigation into the incident.

When our reporter contacted the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the hospital, Dr. I. Kibiya, he said he was busy and promised to call back, which he is yet to do.

He however replied to a text message. He said he had written his report as regards the incident to the FCT health secretariat, adding that he was not permitted to speak to the press or grant any interview, except with permission from the FCT Health and Human Services Secretariat.
