Lagos Naija Nurses Connect

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel »

Nurses' Hangout was an implementation of a members request to create a program for nurses to unwind following our co creation workshop held on 11th November, 2021 at LUTH, Lagos. It is a fact that while Nurses are being religiously dedicated to our duties, our social lives are not really being care for....

Few Nurses usually take time out to let their hair down and catch fun away from the hustle and bustle of their practice... Nurses' Hangout can play a part in reinforcing this aspect of our normality.

This year we would be Connecting/Hangout at National Theater Iganmu Nigeria on the 18th December, 2021.

Who Cares for the Nurses Who Care for You?

The primary role of a nurse, is to care for individuals, families and Communities through health and illness. We are trained caregivers, but sometimes we forget the importance of self-care.
Many nurses put caring for others ahead of caring for themselves. Nurses owes the same duties to self as to others, including the responsibility to promote health and safety, preserve wholeness of character and integrity, maintain competence, and continue personal and professional growth.

A well trained professional nurse put all his/her attention on the patients with the purpose of allay on fears, reduce/remove pains, prevent illness, promote health among others. These definitely put nurses on their toes, yet it seems no one cares for the Nurses.

Who cares about the nurses assuming temporary roles of other medical and health personals when they are no where to be found?

Who cares about about the Nurse for been overworked, overnights duties, underpaid etc?
Who compensates the nurses for the frequent attacks, injuries, humiliation and the likes received from angry patients and significant orders?

Who appreciates the Nurse for being the first of contact in the hospital and for attending to patients at critical and emergency periods?

If no one care for us, Let us care for ourselves by giving ourselves a treat. You work hard, you deserve it! Believe it or not, the building will still stand if you take a day off. Remember if you don't give body a rest, your body will rest you.

COVID-19 came and with little support from the government and our employers in the private sector, we won and survived as nurses.

We faced so many challenges such as lack of PPEs, inadequate staffing, poor hazard allowance, poor means of transportation since most of us can't afford a car from the penny we receive in the private sector. Some of us never got a penny for the hazards we were exposed to during the pandemic till date. We didn't run away, we faced the monster COVID-19, trekked where there is no public transport means, some left their families to be taken care of by neighbors and had to stay in the hospitals to curtail the stress of walking long distances and reduce the risk for cross-contamination to friends and family and never got paid , yet no one sang our praises.



This is why we decided to have an end-of-year hang-out, and make a culture, we decided to put some tokens together, get a good natural leisure center or amusement park to dance, play games, eat, and network.
We are a social group supporting one another to function better, before depression takes a hold of us, (We can not come and kill ourselves)
