Oyo Hospitals Shut for Training Auxiliary Nurses

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel » Thu Mar 15, 2018 3:31 pm

The Oyo State Government on Wednesday said it had closed eight health facilities in the state found guilty of quackery and training of auxiliary nurses.
The state government said the move was to express its commitment to eradication of quackery in the health sector, warning that the training of auxiliary nurses in private facilities would not be tolerated in the state.
The State Commissioner for Health, Dr Azeez Adeduntan, while leading the task force of the Ministry of Health on a routine monitoring exercise and inspection of private health care facilities within Ibadan metropolis, urged anyone who had interest in becoming a nurse to enrol in a medical school recognised by the state government.

Adeduntan, who spoke through the Director of Secondary Health Care and Training, Dr Ayoola Adebisi, pointed out that eight out of the 11 health facilities visited were closed for illegal operations, use of unqualified medical personnel and failure to maintain the minimum standard practice.

“The monitoring exercise is not to victimise anybody or private health care facilities in the state, but to sanitise the system and ensure that rules and regulations guiding the operations of private health care facilities are followed.”

Among the areas visited by the task force were Apete, Awotan, Ijokodo, Arometa, Sango, and Mokola in Ibadan.
