* News / South African Nurse in Soup for Taking Pictures of Dying Zimbabwe Leader by katty: February 17, 2018, 10:30:23 AM
A hospital nurse suspected to have circulated a picture of late Zimbabwe’s opposition leader and MDC-T leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, on his hospital bed – has come under fire after outraged Zimbabweans wrote to the South African Nursing Council (SANC) demanding action.

The picture which was supposedly taken at Johannesburg’s Wits Gordon Hospital where Tsvangirai was hospitalized shows the MDC-T leader lying seemingly lifeless as a nurse appears to pose for the camera.

In a complaint to the SANC) one S Masawi, a registered nurse, demanded that the nurse be charged with misconduct.
"May I bring to your attention the attached image showing one of your Nurses posing for a picture with a patient who is clearly on his final days.

"The patient is a well know Zimbabwean politician Mr Morgan Tsvangirai who passed away today (Wednesday) 14 Feb 2018 at the well-known hospital in Africa WDGMC (Wits Gordon, South African Hospital)," Masawi said.

"I am a fellow registered nurse myself and, sadly, l find the actions of your staff member, a fellow professional colleague to be grossly inappropriate, unprofessional and in breach of the Nursing profession's code of conduct.

"I would like to assume a breach in the local hospital policies as well."

Masawi added that, it had become public knowledge that Tsvangirai was battling colon cancer in the past two years and his situation had taken a turn for the worst in the past few weeks, adding that action against the nurse is required "against such images for personal gratification and to uphold his right to personal dignity."

"I would be grateful if you could investigate this case of unprofessionalism and perhaps we can all learn from this.

"I would not want to assume such behaviours are acceptable under the SA Nursing council. The image is likely to go viral on social media over the coming few days so perhaps an earlier response may be called for.

"SA Nursing Council is well respected for its excellence in standards of training and conduct and so producing some pf the best nurses and healthcare practitioners out there."

Another concerned health care professional who signed of as Kathryn also expressed disgust at the picture in a letter to the SANC.

"I am a concerned African who also happens to be a proud health care professional. I am writing to bring to your attention a picture circulating on social media showing a clearly unwell possibly on death bed the late Morgan Tsvangirai with a lady wearing a nurse's uniform.

"Now I do not want to jump to the conclusion that this lady was the one who took or is circulating this very unprofessional picture. But it would make me have respect for both your organizations if an investigation was launched into this matter," Kathryn said.

"Am not sure what part of the world this would be acceptable let alone in Africa with our ‘ubunthu'. If indeed this lady is a qualified nurse privately employed or working for your hospital/clinic I would like to ask that you investigate this issue.

"Perhaps she needs direction and refresher lessons into professional conduct expected from this profession".

* News / Ghana MOH ask Mampong Nursing and Midwifery College Students to Refund Allowance by Idowu Olabode: February 17, 2018, 08:18:12 AM
The Ministry of Health (MoH) has asked over 200 past students of Mampong Midwifery and Nursing Training College to refund monies wrongfully paid to them as allowance covering two months in 2017.

Each student received an amount of GHS800 covering November and December 2017.

According to the MoH, these payments were made despite strict instructions to school authorities to exclude names of all immediate past students.

They have up until 28 February 2018 to refund the monies.

Speaking to Class News, Mr Robert Cudjoe, Public Relations Officer at the MoH explained that: “We had a particular year group of nursing training graduates who at the time were not in school and had completed and gone.

“When we were paying, we sent letters to all principals throughout Ghana asking them to take away those names. They had already received September October [allowance] because at that time, it covered them, but by the time we were paying November-December, they were not in school.

“All schools complied before they sent the certified validated list to us for payment. Later, it was found out that - I don’t know whether the letter we sent to them they did not read it well or it was an oversight - over 200 names were included in the validated list sent to us.

“So upon this revelation, a directive was given to write to the students to refund these two months allowance. When their colleagues in other schools got a hint that they had been paid, they also started agitating, so we made it clear to them that they were not included and that it was a mistake that’s why we are asking them to refund the monies.”

* News / India Nurses Stage Strike over ill treatment of a Nurse by a Doctor by katty: February 15, 2018, 12:13:07 PM
Over 200 nurses boycotted duties for the better part of the day on Wednesday to protest against the alleged ill-treatment of a nurse by a doctor at the state-run Gandhi Hospital. This protest affected patient services.

The incident took place late on Tuesday night at the Pulmonology ward, when a PG doctor allegedly verbally lashed out at duty nurse Renuka for not attending to her duties properly.

By Wednesday morning, a huge group of nurses launched a massive protest in front of the hospital's administrative building, demanding that the doctor apologise to them.

The boycott continued for four hours, delaying three scheduled surgeries. Many patients faced hardships due to the absence of nurses.

"Usually duty nurses administer injections to admitted patients. But today (Wednesday) many people had to wait for three hours for their injections and for having IV drips changed," said an insider.

"Every time there is an issue, doctors tend to blame contract nurses. We work very hard and even take on extra work, changing IVs apart from attending to patients. This kind of behaviour lowers the morale of nurses," said a nurse.

Hospital authorities later intervened and the doctor was summoned by superintendent Dr P Shravan Kumar to tender an apology. He apologised to the hospital superintendent and other senior authorities, before wrapping up his night shift on Wednesday morning.
However, agitating nurses wanted him to return and apologise at the protest site to the nurse he had abused, leading to a stalemate. "The issue was resolved amicably between both the parties," said Kumar.
