Retiring Nurses in Ogun State Beg Governor Amosu to Employ More Nurses by Idowu Olabode : November 22, 2017, 02:06:40 PM
Some retiring nurses in Ogun State public hospitals have appealed to the state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, to employ more nurses so as to take over from them as they retire from the service.

The nurses, who spoke with our correspondent on condition of anonymity, during a send-off organised for them at the Nurses’ House in Abeokuta,  said the state government  had failed to replace those who retired from service over the years, thus making the job stressful for them.

One of the retiring nurses explained that the employment of more nurses would improve service delivery to the patients.

She said, “I want the government to employ more nurses. In a case where you need the attention of nurses and they are supposed to be four or five to do the job, but you have only one or two persons, some lives may be lost.”

Another one said, “As we are leaving now, there is no replacement. This has been the trend for many years. I want to advise the government to try and employ more nurses. “

However, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Babatunde Ipaye, described the current economic recession as one of the reasons why retired nurses were not being replaced by new ones.
