* Nursing Heroes / Meet Australia's "Nightingale" who is to be awarded the World's Highest Honour by Idowu Olabode: May 19, 2017, 10:58:03 AM
Highlights
*Sydney nurse Catherine Salmon to receive the world's highest nursing honour
*She is one of five Australian Red Cross nurses given Florence Nightingale Medal
*Medal is awarded for courage and devotion to victims of war or natural disaster
*Ms Salmon has taken bullets from patients' in war zones and treated refugees

Sydney nurse Catherine Salmon has taken bullets out of patients' chests in hostile war zones and treated refugees fleeing Syria, but says it's the people she helps, not her, who are amazing.

After working across Africa and the Middle East over 13 years, Ms Salmon is one of five Australian Red Cross nurses to be awarded the world's highest nursing honour, the Florence Nightingale Medal.

Named after the founder of modern nursing, the medal is awarded for exceptional courage and devotion to victims of war or natural disaster.

Ms Salmon finds it hard to understand why people say she does amazing things.

'It's really funny what people say that ... but there's just so many other people out there doing the same thing that I don't feel like I'm really any different,' Ms Salmon, now back in Sydney, told AAP.

Between 2003 and 2016, she worked across Sudan, Gaza, Afghanistan, Jordan, Yemen, South Sudan and Somalia as a surgical and head nurse providing critical care in some of the world's toughest armed conflicts.

Her first Red Cross posting was in Juba, in what is now South Sudan, where the only source of news came via a taxi driver who drove around announcing what he'd heard on the radio.

'The people in these places have lived under such hard conditions for so long that they're tough, they're resilient and amazing,' Ms Salmon said.

'If they get a new pair of crutches, they walk out and look like they've just won the lottery.

'If you're taking bullets out of their chest ... they're just so grateful and resilient.'


Other Australian recipients are Brisbane nurses Ruth Jebb, Barbara McMaster, and WA-based Catherine Fry and Anne Carey (Pictured caring for patients at a Red Cross Ebola treatment centre in Kenema)



Almost 40 women from 22 countries have received the Florence Nightingale Medal, including Anne Carey (Pictured at a Red Cross Ebola treatment centre in Kenema)



Ms Carey (pictured) helped in the Red Cross response to contain Ebola in Sierra Leone as well as working in a refugee camp on the Sudan/Kenya border.


Almost 40 women from 22 countries have received the Florence Nightingale Medal.

The other Australian recipients are Brisbane nurses Ruth Jebb, Barbara McMaster, and WA-based Catherine Fry and Anne Carey.

'From South Sudan to Afghanistan, Yemen to Sierra Leone, they have helped children survive horrific injuries caused by weapons, cared for patients suffering with Ebola and saved lives with education on hygiene and disease prevention,' said Peter Walton, Director, International at Australian Red Cross.

'They're colleagues or mentors to local health workers, often working under difficult and dangerous conditions.'

Along with Ms Salmon, Ms McMaster also provided critical surgical care in Afghanistan, Sudan and Yemen, while Ms Carey helped in the Red Cross response to contain Ebola in Sierra Leone as well as working in a refugee camp on the Sudan/Kenya border.

Ms Fry coordinated the delivery of health care for children and mothers in Sudan where Ms Jebb coordinated a feeding clinic for thousands of malnourished children as well as midwifery and intensive care in Cambodia and Chad.

* News / Malawi Government to Recruit 600 Nurses by Idowu Olabode: May 19, 2017, 08:50:47 AM
The Malawi Government has said it will recruit new nurses in order to increase the number of nurses in the country’s hospitals.

Spokesperson in the Ministry of Health Adrian Chikumbe said the ministry will soon recruit 600 nurses to achieve the nurse to patient ratio.

As government we are making strides to make sure that the doctor patient ratio is achieved and we will recruit 600 nurses to be in line with the number of patients,” said Chikumbe.

The International Council of Nurses recommended nurse-patient ratio is 1 nurse to six patients but in 2015 Malawi was said to have a patient-nurse ratio of 1 to 80.

Chikumbe admitted that achieving the recommended nurse to patient ratio is still a challenge but government will make sure that the number of nurses is increased.

* News / NANNM calls for more employment of midwives by Idowu Olabode: May 18, 2017, 09:58:43 PM
The National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) has called on the government at all tiers to take some precautions and safety measures to reduce childhood mortality and maternal death, which are still very high in the country, especially in the rural areas.

The association said childhood and maternal deaths can further be reduced if government employed trained midwives and provide equipment at the medical facilities with needed materials.



First National Vice President, NANNM, Co-ordination and Chairperson of Midwifery sector of NANNM, Mrs Margaret Akinsola and the National President, NANNM, Abdulrafiu Adeniji, who made the call were both speaking at a press conference to commemorate the 2017 International Day of the Midwives in Abuja.

According to Mrs Akinsola, “childhood and maternal mortality is higher in rural areas than in urban areas. These deaths can be further lessened and prevented if the government takes some precautions and safety measures by ensuring that midwives trained to carry out these duties are employed; facilities are equipped with needed materials and equipment to carry out these tasks.

“The era of using the less-skilled health workers should be erased as this has not helped to lessen the menace of maternal and infant mortality rates in the country.”

She pointed out that access to a skilled midwife can help reduce and prevent deaths of more than 287,000 women at child birth, and also reduce drastically those left with morbidities as a result of birth injuries.

Abdulrafiu in his remarks also denounced the poor state of infrastructures in the nation’s hospitals, adding that the development remains a great challenge to delivery of quality services by health professionals.

He also decried the shortage of skilled midwives across hospitals in the country and appealed to government at all levels to disengage unskilled midwives used by their predecessors.

According to him, such unskilled persons have not helped to achieve desired improvement in the health of mothers and children in the country.
