Asaba FMC Denies Use of Fake, Unqualified Nurses by Idowu Olabode : December 14, 2014, 12:58:51 PM
The Management of Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Asaba, Delta State, has dismissed as falsehood the allegation that it has engaged the services of fake or unqualified nurses from outside to run the hospital while the nationwide strike by health workers lasted.

The Joint Health Staff Union (JOHESU), FMC Asaba branch, had, in a statement by its chairman, Philip Asiodu, accused the management of bringing in fake nurses and other unqualified health workers to keep the hospital going.

But Leo Erhunwuse, the Centre's Chief Medical Director (CMD), stated in Asaba on Thursday, saying doctors at the facility were merely rendering skeletal services by keeping the clinics, saying only two wards open for effective supervision.

He said though the hospital was running the skeletal service at a huge loss, contract staff such as drivers, mortuary attendants and security men were still carrying out their duties.

The medical director said specimen of patients were taken to private diagnostic centres for result, adding that no fake or unqualified nurses were engaged from outside, making it clear that doctors were not on strike and that it was their responsibilities to save lives.

He cited an emergency case on Wednesday where accident victims were brought in and doctors were at hand to attend to them.
