As the subsisting strike by workers in the Federal Medical Centers, FMCs across the country continues to bite harder, the leadership of the workers in Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Asaba has raised the alarm over attempt by management to use quacks to attend to patients.

They alleged that management has employed and deployed unqualified

hands to render health services which they were not trained or licensed to do.

The representatives of the workers under the Joint Health Sector Union, JOHESU, raised the alarm in a statement after an emergency meeting to appraise the strike, yesterday in Asaba.

In the statement endorsed by the Chairman of JOHESU, Comrade Tony Asiodu, and made available to Nigerian Pilot, the workers advised the public being lured to patronize the hospital on the guise that personnel were on duty to be careful and not to play with their health.

“The management has thrown away tenets of professionalism/ethics of

professional conducts in a bid to create a posture that the hospital is providing services when in actual sense, they are rendering unhealthy and quack services which poses a great threat to Delta State citizens and members of the public at large, because all the qualified professionals whose job they are trying to mimic to do are on strike”, he state.

According to the statement, a situation where non-qualified and non-licensed casual staff were employed to carry out laboratory and nursing services is unacceptable and condemnable, urging the people to be wary of management antics.

Nigerian Nurses lighting up the world one candle at a time.
