* News / Jealous Ghanaian Nurse Chews Lip of Suspected Rival in Takoradi by katty: Today at 12:56:41 PM
A jealous newly trained nurse  in Takoradi has completely bitten off the lower lip of another lady she suspected of having an affair with her boyfriend.

The newly trained nurse who did not understand why her boyfriend gave a lift to the 23-year-old hairdressing apprentice, pursued the victim to her house and in a cannibalistic manner, bit off her entire lower lip.



The lady, Beatrice Eric Agyapong was immediately rushed to the Kwesimintsim Government Hospital but doctors on duty said the cells in the bitten off part had died, hence could not stitch it to the mouth.

Beatrice who has been on admission since Friday when the incident happened, told Takoradi-based Connect Sunday that the matter has been reported to the Police but the perpetrator is yet to be arrested.

She said she has been groaning in pain

What happened?


According to the victim, she was recently treated for an ulcer and was thus advised by doctors to adopt the habit of eating early to avoid complications.

On Friday at about 8:00 am, she decided to go to Kwesimintsim to find food to buy and just when she stepped out of her house, she saw a private car passing so she flagged it to stop.

Beatrice said she pleaded with the driver of the car, who turned out to be the boyfriend of the suspect, to give her lift to Kwesimintsim which he obliged.

“I saw the private car passing and pleaded with the driver to alight me at Kwesimintsim so I could find some food to buy,” she recounted.

She explained that just when she got back home and about to eat her food, the nurse whose name has only been given as Mummy, suddenly showed up and confronted her [Agyapong] about why she boarded the boyfriend’s car.

“She grabbed my lip and started chewing it as I struggled to defend myself but to no avail,” she told Connect FM.

The victim said people intervened and rushed her to hospital and doctors on duty sent for the bitten off flesh but the time it was brought, they said all the cells in it had died so could not be stitched.

Asked whether she had any issues with the suspect, Beatrice responded in the negative, adding she had not even spoken with her before though she knows the nurse as a tenant in her (victim’s) uncle’s house.

A report has since been made to the Kwesimintsim police who are waiting for the victim to feel a little better to take a statement from her.

* News / Uganda: Solar Energy Easing Midwives' Work in Arua by katty: Today at 12:17:04 PM
It is what I was trained to do. Whatever the circumstances, I have to do everything possible to save lives," Baku says.

Nurses and midwives are usually the first point of contact with patients. It is no different for Mary Baku, a midwife at Riki Health Centre III in Arua District. About 25 kilometres away from Arua town, Baku's daily work is well cut-out to save the lives of mothers and babies. Her desire to fulfil the dictates of her calling, beams in a wide smile when she recounts the hundreds of mothers she has helped deliver in her career that spans over 10 years.

"There are mothers who come back and say thank you. This makes me happy," Baku says.

Challenges

But like a horse which has four legs, yet it often falls, Baku's desire to save lives many times is tested to the point of frustration. Riki Health Centre, like many other small health facilities across the country, does not have electricity.

Ministry of Energy statistics show that only 21 of Ugandans have access to electricity. The ministry, however, plans to increase coverage to 26 per cent in the next three years.

At night, other than the flicker of a kerosene lamp that emits both necessary light and dangerous soot, there is no light to enable Baku see when helping mothers to deliver. At 135 deaths per 1,000 live births, Uganda ranks as one of the unsafe countries in the world to deliver from. An estimated 28 per cent of maternal deaths in the country occur among women and girls under 24 years. Some of the leading factors; include teenage pregnancies, not attending antenatal care, negligence of health workers and lack of essential commodities in health facilities.

"There is no infection control because in the darkness, things can become messy very quickly. We were really worried of infecting ourselves and infecting other patients," Baku says.

The World Health Organisation, lists norovirus, influenza, methicillin, tuberculosis, among others are diseases that spread highest in hospitals.

The facility delivers between 35 and 40 mothers each month. Services such as prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, family planning and general diagnosis and treatment are also a given. There are two midwives at the facility and one in-charge.

Solar energy

A month ago, however, Riki Health Centre graduated from darkness to solar lighting donated by World Wide Fund, a conservation organisation with funding from the European Union under the Scaling-up Rural Electrification programme.

The lighting system comes as a relief to not only patients but health workers here, where roads to Arua town with better healthcare can be accessed are bumpy.

"When delivering a mother and she is pushing the baby, you need to talk to her. But how would you talk to the mother when you have a touch in your mouth? It was very difficult," Baku adds.

Beneficiaries

Lundia Asekuru, who said in an interview that she has suffered from asthma since 2003, was one of the first beneficiaries of a lit-up facility. "Sometimes I get an attack at night and they have to use a touch to take me to the centre. Even at the centre, I find them using a touch," Asekeru, a resident of Turupa village, Oluko Sub-county in Arua says.

"If this health centre was not around, I would be dead. It is easy to get treatment here since it is near. Government should provide electricity or provide solar systems to all health facilities, especially in rural areas," she adds.

Her request, State Minister of Health for General Duties, Sarah Opendi, said is something government is aware of and doing everything possible to extend power to all corners of Uganda. Opendi says with the abundance of the sun, which can be used to generate power, a bright future lies ahead.

The country also has the potential to generate 1,650MW from biomass, 800MW from peat, 200MW from mini hydropower sites and 2,000MW from large hydropower sites.

"It is still a challenge to have power in all health centres but overtime, we have connected a number of them to solar. It is efficient and we are working with the ministry of Energy to see that all centres have power," Opendi says. "Cabinet approved more money to rural electrification programme and these health centres will benefit," she adds.

In the meantime, however, minister Opendi cautions health workers to at all times wear protective gear before attending to patients.

"Because the ministry sends this protective gear to all centres, there should be no worries of infections even in darkness," she says. David Binega, the in-charge of Riki Health Centre, says without electricity, keeping medicine which requires low temperatures was a challenge. He adds that now, it is easy to keep vaccines and light the premises.

Binega adds that lighting is also providing security to the centre as patients and caregivers are able to see who is coming in and leaving unlike in the past when the facility was in darkness.

"As a result of the installation of solar energy, we are now able to respond to emergency cases in the night and administer vaccines to new born babies in time, which was not possible before," he adds.

Need for manpower

David Binega, the in-charge of Riki Health Centre, says there is need to recruit more staff to beef up the current manpower at the facility. The health sector is one that suffer from under-staffing. Although the World Health Organisation recommends doctor-patient ratios of 1:1000 and 1: 600 by 2020, the ministry of Health estimates that the ratio currently stands at 1:24,000.

The 2015/2016 annual Health Sector performance review shows that Uganda has a staffing shortage of anesthetic officers, which stands at 73 per cent, pharmacists at 60 per cent, nurses at 51 per cent and midwives at 25 per cent.

The 2016/2017 Annual Health Sector Performance Report also indicates the overall staffing gap of health workers in Uganda stands at 27 per cent.

Fortunately, government recently announced that they will recruit at least 15,000 O-Level leavers as community health extension workers to provide basic healthcare in villages in the next three years. The move is in line with the ministry's initiative to promote its new healthcare delivery model that focuses more on disease prevention to decongest public hospitals and health facilities in rural areas

* News / Protesting Hong Kong nurses demand action over manpower shortages by katty: January 20, 2019, 08:54:51 PM
-More than 100 members of Association of Hong Kong Nursing Staff gather outside government headquarters to voice their discontent

Hong Kong authorities must hire more nurses to tackle an ongoing manpower crisis at public hospitals, according to the city’s largest nursing guild.



More than 100 members of the Association of Hong Kong Nursing Staff, which represents 60 per cent of the city’s 50,000 nurses, gathered outside the government headquarters on Sunday to voice their discontent at the shortage.

The nurses, as well as some doctors and former patients, brought with them black balloons to symbolise their unhappiness and stress.

Secretary for Food and Health Professor Sophia Chan Siu-chee, who headed the University of Hong Kong’s school of nursing before joining the government in 2012, showed up at the rally to speak to protesters.

Chan pledged to ask the Hospital Authority to look into the problem. She also told the protesting nurses that starting from the end of the month, the authority’s pay for frontline medical staff working on extra shifts would be increased by 10 per cent.

But she was booed by protesters, who said public hospitals needed more staff, not money.

A nurse, surnamed Chan, said: “Each nurse has to take care of up to 20 patients at the same time. The service quality could be affected and it could be easier for us to make mistakes.”

Another nurse, surnamed Chow, said: “Many patients need to wait even though they are asking for minor stuff such as the changing of diapers, or a cup of water.”

Nurses also said there was too much clerical or administrative work at public hospitals.

The outcry comes as the city grapples with the deadly winter flu season. Some 46 people have died since Hong Kong entered the peak flu season at the start of the month, of which 40 were older than 65. A total of 121 serious flu cases have been identified.

According to the authority, bed occupancy rates at all medical wards of public hospitals reached 105 per cent on Saturday, meaning temporary beds had to be laid along corridors or in between fixed ones.

Sophia Chan said she noticed the authority had set aside hundreds of million of dollars to deal with the ongoing winter flu season.

“They could have done better in terms of policy implementation and communication … It’s most important for us to listen to nurses’ suggestions on what are the key areas of concern and what measures would be helpful,” she said.

The association’s chairman, lawmaker Joseph Lee Kok-long, countered that from past experience, extra payment for nurses was ineffective in solving the problem.

After the rally, the nurses marched to Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor’s office nearby. But since there was no one there to receive their petition, they tied their black balloons on fences outside the office and ended their protest.

In a statement, the authority responded that it was fully aware of the tremendous workload faced by frontline staff and was committed to supporting them by every possible means.

In 2018-19, the authority added 574 beds and allocated HK$520 million (US$66.7 million) for public hospitals to prepare for the increase in workload.

Although 1,400 nurses were leaving the authority, it would recruit 2,230 nurses in the 2018-19 year, resulting in a net increase of 830. Public hospitals have also hired about 800 part-time and temporary nurses to alleviate the workload of frontline staff during the winter surge, it added.

* News / South Africa: No places for 10 000 nursing students in KwaZulu-Natal by katty: January 20, 2019, 08:48:59 PM
Thousands of prospective students in KwaZulu-Natal entered this year with the hope of pursuing their studies in nursing despite clear indications that the field was saturated and that jobs would be hard to get.

Health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo recently estimated there were at least 10 000 unemployed nurses in the province and the situation was unlikely to change in the near future.



Despite this, the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) received 14 668 applications for nursing degrees this year.

UKZN’s acting executive director for corporate relations Normah Zondo said most of the hopefuls had been turned away.

“The university can only accommodate 80 students in nursing,” she said.

In the past, Dhlomo criticised the 28 private nursing colleges in KZN saying they trained students at an exorbitant cost without considering whether there were enough posts in the public and private health-care sectors to accommodate them.

“It is sad when you look at the numbers of unemployed people who’ve been trained, largely by the private nursing colleges in the province, going over 10 000.

“When we engaged these private nursing colleges, I asked them, ‘What plan do you have? Why do you keep on training people when there’s no plan to get them into the system?’”

He said the province had even arranged to have unemployed nurses taken to other provinces for job interviews.

“Here and there they’ve been successful but by and large we still remain with over 10 000 nurses who are unemployed,” said Dhlomo.

Londeka Khuzwayo, a student who attempted to register for nursing at a private college in Durban this year, was unsuccessful, being told that “the college will not take any first year nursing students until the year 2020”.

Khuzwayo said the college also informed her that most private nursing institutions in the province were not accepting new nurses this year.

Netcare’s director of nursing and nursing education Shannon Nell said its institutions made provision for nurses to specialise and this minimised the number of students who were unemployed.

“Nursing professionals have the opportunity to become highly specialised in one of the many disciplines of modern medicine.”

She said some of the options after qualifying as a registered nurse included specialisations in paediatrics, neonatal, transplant, trauma and emergency, infection prevention, oncology and renal nursing.

“Considering the dynamic nature of the medical fraternity, there is also more scope for advancement into top administrative and management positions. Anyone considering a career in nursing should gain as much knowledge and experience as they possibly can,” she said.

In the past, the UK and the Middle East were highly sought-after destinations for South African nurses who wanted to improve their employment options and earn in foreign currencies.

Recently, the UK again made a call for nurses from Africa and Asia to fill their 400 000 vacancies.

* News / Nursing Students Save Mans Life After He Collapsed In The Gym by katty: January 20, 2019, 07:19:56 PM
A nursing student walked into her gym at just the right time Friday morning after a 67-year-old man had collapsed and wasn't breathing. Megan Crawley, 23, was met with panicked shouts as soon as she opened the doors of the North Little Rock Athletic Club, and the first year nursing student immediately rushed over to help Charles Rainey, who was quickly turning blue.
 
“I just kept thinking, ‘please don’t die,'" Crawley told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “When I felt he had a pulse and his color came back, I was like, ‘thank you, Jesus.'"
 
Crawley was assisted by her University of Arkansas at Little Rock nursing classmate, Ryan Ruff, who works at the front desk of the gym and is also a medic in the National Guard. Crawley performed CPR while Ruff charged an automated external defibrillator because Crawley had found no pulse.
 
The students jolted Rainey back to life with dozens of chest compressions and a single defibrillator shock. He was alert and talking before paramedics arrived.
 
Rainey, a retiree who decided to run less than a mile to the gym that morning, had suffered cardiac arrest. Crawley visited him at Baptist Health Medical Center on Sunday. He had three stents put in over the weekend and was released from the hospital Tuesday morning.
 
"I was dead when I hit the floor," Rainey said, recalling his collapse. He praised Crawley as a "sweet girl" who saved his life.
 
Crawley told Fox News she could not have done it alone without "Ryan's amazing teamwork and skills." She also credits her faith and UA Little Rock nursing instructor Joanna Rostad-Hall for preparing her for Friday’s emergency. “She was the one who taught my CPR class,” Crawley told the university newspaper. “If it wasn’t for Mrs. Rostad-Hall and God, I don’t know what I would’ve done.”
 
The university praised the students for going above and beyond to save Rainey's life.
 
“It still gives me goosebumps,” Rostad-Hall said. “The fact that they’re first-year students, and they did what they did…we could not be more proud of them.”

* News / Lauren Underwood 32-year-old nurse becomes Youngest Black Woman in USA Congress by katty: January 19, 2019, 10:15:42 PM
When the 116th Congress was sworn into office on Thursday, the class made history as the most diverse group ever with a record 127 women.

Among those women was 32-year-old Democrat Lauren Underwood, who etched her name in the history book as the youngest black woman to be elected to Congress.



Underwood, who graduated from the University of Michigan and Johns Hopkins University, is a registered nurse who now represents Illinois’ 14th Congressional District. Her transition into politics began in 2010, when she joined the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

According to her website, she played a crucial role in implementing the Affordable Care Act. In 2014, she was appointed by the Obama administration to help with public health emergencies and disasters across the nation, including the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

Born in Ohio but raised in Chicago-suburb Naperville, Illinois, Underwood says her inspiration to work in healthcare came from the doctors and nurses who helped her fight a heart condition she was diagnosed with at age 8. As someone with a pre-existing health condition, she says she knows first-hand how important it is to enact laws and policies that preserve and expand healthcare for Illinois families.

“I have a two-year opportunity to make a real difference and represent the people of the 14th, and they have placed their faith in me,” The Chicago Tribune reports Underwood saying at a recent Congressional Black Caucus event. “They’ve given us a chance. I have to prove myself, and we will, beginning on day one, where I’m leading an effort to reform this government.”

In addition to Underwood, several other Congressional newcomers are making history, including Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first Muslim women in Congress; Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland, the first Native American women in Congress; Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman in Congress; and Jahana Hayes, Connecticut’s first black woman in Congress.

When asked by a reporter if she was excited to make history, Underwood said she was excited to be part of “a moment in history.” She explained at a CBC event that this new class of Congress “is what [she] always hoped the United States Congress could always look like.”

“Diversity of thought, geographic diversity, age, race, gender, life experience are all great things that we each bring to this Congress of the United States,” The Chicago Tribune reports her saying. “I’m really proud to be part of a caucus where I’m not ‘the only.’”

* News / Kwara Health Workers to Begin Indefinite Strike by katty: January 18, 2019, 06:38:28 PM
The Joint Council of Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) and the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), Kwara State council will on Monday begin an indefinite strike across all the 16 local government areas in the state.

This was contained in a statement jointly signed by the NANNM Chairmen, Joshua Adekanye and Muritala Olayinka Saheed, in Ilorin.

According to the statement, “All the state health facilities/hospitals, including the ministry of environment and agriculture, should also join the strike as from Monday 21st January 2019 to press home the implementation of approved 10 per cent consolidated health salary structure for the workers at the councils.

“This is as a result of the state government’s implementation of the approved 10 per cent CONHESS for state health workers since July 2018 and refusal to implement same for health workers at the local government level in the state.”

The statement urged to health programmes members in family planning, immunisation, and HIV/AIDS to suspend their work during the industrial action.
