* News / Nurse who was attacked by Patient Sues Hospital for Ignoring her Warning by katty: February 22, 2018, 12:07:27 PM
A former nurse at New Hampshire Hospital is suing the psychiatric facility and the state Department of Health and Human Services, claiming her warnings about a dangerous patient who later assaulted her were ignored, leading to serious injury.

Harriet Redmond of Laconia and her husband are seeking unspecified damages through a jury trial. Lawyers for both sides were in Merrimack County Superior Court on Wednesday for a hearing on the state’s motion to dismiss, which the judge took under advisement.

The state argues that Redmond was covered by workers compensation, is now receiving payments and is ineligible to sue under workers compensation law.

The lawsuit, filed in October, comes as the Executive Council is expressing concern about the large number of compensation cases it has had to approve in recent months for employees injured at New Hampshire Hospital or the Sununu Youth Services Center.

Redmond had been employed at the hospital since 2011 at the time of the attack in 2014. The lawsuit claims that she warned her supervisor, Dr. David G. Folks, then chief medical officer at NHH, that a patient in her care was a danger to himself and others, and should be transferred to the Secure Psychiatric Unit (SPU) at the state prison.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the Redmonds by Concord attorney Jim Bianco, makes disturbing allegations about the criteria used to transfer patients from the state hospital to the state prison.

“Based upon the signs that (the patient) was dangerous and losing control, Ms. Redmond recommended to Dr. Folks that NHH transfer the patient to the SPU before he hurts himself or somebody else,” according to the lawsuit, which goes on to allege that Dr. Folks told Redmond, “the patient would not be removed from NHH or transferred to the SPU until after he hurts somebody.”

The lawsuit claims that NHH has failed to establish a policy or plan regarding the transfer of involuntarily admitted patients with mental illness from the state hospital to the prison unit.

“NHH and the SPU have an unwritten policy that patient transfers to or from either location are sometimes effectuated by way of a swap,” according to the lawsuit, “meaning that if NHH wishes to transfer a dangerous patient to the SPU, NHH would have to receive a patient from the SPU in exchange.”

Punched in the face

In May 2014, Redmond was in a hospital room with the patient and two other staff members, when the patient stood up and violently punched her in the face.

Citing information corroborated by the other witnesses and police reports, the lawsuit says the punch was so hard that Redmond’s head became misshapen.

The patient is described as a 6-foot, 40-year-old male weightlifter, who attacked Redmond, a 5-foot, 69-year-old woman weighing 145 pounds.

The punch caused her head to strike the concrete wall behind her. One of the staff members in the room feared that she’d been killed, as she let out a brief scream, followed by silence.

“The floor of the room was covered in blood from Ms. Redmond’s injuries,” according to the lawsuit.

The emergency diagnosis at Concord Hospital included facial lacerations, nasal bone fracture, mild concussion, and a right orbital fracture. Redmond remains under medical care with multiple physical and psychological conditions, and is in danger of losing her vision altogether.

“The brutal assault has stripped Ms. Redmond of her full sense of self, her personal identity and her sense of purpose,” according to her attorneys.

The patient was found incompetent to stand trial in a 2015 hearing and was civilly committed to the SPU.

Assistant Attorney General Lynmarie Cusack, defending the state agencies, says New Hampshire law bars an employee from bringing a lawsuit against an employer for personal injuries sustained on the job when worker’s compensation coverage is in effect.

“That the necessary workers’ compensation insurance was in place is indisputable,” according to Cusack, “since the plaintiff has actual

* News / JOHESU Strike Grounds Services At Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital by katty: February 22, 2018, 09:56:56 AM
Activities at the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital in Enugu have been grounded following an industrial action by the Joint Health Sector Unions in the health facility.

A Correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria who monitored the development on Wednesday, reports that but for the few doctors and nurses on duty, the hospital was deserted, as the strike entered day 13.

NAN observed that most patients at the hospital were withdrawn, except those that have nobody to take them home.

The Chairman of Medical and Health Workers Union at the hospital, Mathew Eze, said that the industrial action was necessitated by the arrears of salaries and allowances owed them.

He also said that the industrial action was also to protest the percentage salary and other illegal deductions on their salaries by the management of the institution.

Eze said that the facility which was the only neuropsychiatric hospital in the South East had become a ghost of its former self due to poor management.
The union leader said that they had issued the management of the hospital a 21 day ultimatum to address their grievances to avert the strike.

He said: “In that letter, we stated that any attempt to owe salaries of workers beyond December 2017 will be totally unacceptable to us.

“Sadly, by the time we received December 2017 salaries, we still noticed unwarranted withholding of part of our salaries.

“It is well known that the labour unions have fully exhausted all forms of peaceful negotiations with the management and other relevant offices.’’

Eze said that members of the union were subjected to harsh working environment while workers in other sister establishments were not suffering similar fate.

The labour leader said it was sad that the facility had been allowed to crumble for lack of care and insensitivity to welfare of workers.

He said that the management of the institution had taken advantage of their non-inclusion in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System to punish them.

Eze said that part of the conditions to call off the strike was to pay all the illegal deductions made on their salaries from February 2017 and arrears of allowances from 2013.

He said: “We also call for the immediate enrollment of our hospital into the IPPIS.’’

Also, the Secretary of National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives in the hospital, Eric Ugwu, said that the success of the strike was due to the level of decay in the facility.

Ugwu said that a situation where nurses and midwives work with torchlight at night in a psychiatric hospital was most demeaning.

He said: “The level of decay in this hospital is the reason no one is coming to work due to the strike. The hospital has been without public source of power supply since 2014.

“Medical doctors no longer come to work at nights while nurses work with torchlight due to the prevailing circumstance.’’

Reacting, the Director of Administration in the hospital, Ndidi Igwenagu, confirmed that medical workers had been on strike.

Igwenagu, however, said that they do not grant interviews, as applications for interview should be made to the Chief Medical Director, Dr Jojo Onwukwe, who was not on seat.

Efforts to reach Onwukwe through his phone number proved abortive as he neither answered calls nor respond to text message sent to him.

* News / NZNO Submits 15,000 signatures supporting a better deal for nurses by katty: February 21, 2018, 09:37:15 PM
New Zealand: NZNO delegates today handed over to district health board multi-employer collective agreement (MECA) lead advocate, Kevin McFadgen 15000 signatures to an open letter supporting a better deal for nurses.

In December, when the NZNO members rejected the first negotiated offer from the DHBs, NZNO launched an online petition in support of its members at www.together.org.nz/iheartnurses

Dear District Health Board Chief Executives

‘Nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants are the heart of our public healthcare services. Their skills, hard work and compassion keep all New Zealanders happy, safe, and healthy. I support better pay and healthy workplaces in our public healthcare services for our precious nursing and midwifery teams. Please keep our local health services safe and sustainable by delivering our nurses a better deal.’

NZNO Industrial Adviser Lesley Harry says nurses want to achieve pay rates and conditions that provide for a sustainable workforce and healthy workplaces.

“DHBs will soon confirm a reconstructed offer for members meetings in March. Any new offer needs to deliver improvements on our key issues if it is to be accepted by members,” she said.

Presenting the letter NZNO delegates Sarah Gilbertson and Karen Durham said:

“The pay and conditions for health care workers must improve in order to sustain a quality healthcare service for all New Zealanders.”

“This issue is also about how we recognise and reward our predominately female workforce.”

“The outcome of these negotiations is a reflection on our society and the value we place on health. Well supported health teams improve the health of all New Zealanders.”
