Manhyia Hospital nurses’ strike is badly affecting pregnant patients.
The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association has declared a strike that will start on Friday, December 2.
Following a crucial meeting on December 1st, the region’s chairman Jones Afriyie Antoh spoke with television station 3.
If the troubled National Service Scheme (NSS) regional director is still on suspension rather than being fired by Tuesday, the Association has threatened to extend it to all health facilities in the Ashanti, according to TV3’s William Evans-Nkum.
This occurs despite the fact that Alex Opoku-Mensah, the NSS’s suspended Ashanti Region Director, was scheduled to testify before a committee formed to look into assault claims made against him.
Following an urgent meeting on November 30, the committee was established by the Scheme’s administration.
This follows charges that Mr. Opoku-Mensah verbally abused a nurse at the Manhyia District Hospital while speaking to her on the phone.
On a leaked recording of their heated exchange, Mr. Opoku-Nensah can be heard cursing at the hospital nurse who cares for his daughter.
According to reports, the health worker asked Mr Opoku-daughter, Mensah’s a medical student, to check her prescription to a patient.
The NSS Director for the Ashanti Region has subsequently apologized, saying that his behavior is not typical of him.
“This has never been my style, but I’m doing it for a sincere reason—to resolve a lingering conflict between my daughter, a doctor, and a nurse colleague who I also consider to be my daughter.
I sincerely sorry for any inconvenience and guarantee everyone that there won’t be another one. I look forward to keeping a friendly relationship with anyone who is impacted.
However, a committee made up of officials from the Ministry of Education, the Public Services Commission, and the NSS has been established to look into the matter and provide a report within a month.
