4 UNIPORT Teaching Hospital Nurses Die In Six Months, Staff Blame Workload by nairafamedotcom: 11:54am On Dec 22, 2019
National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH) has raised concern that it lost four Chief Nursing Officers within six months due to stress from work overload.

Chairman of the Association in UPTH, MacDonald Uchendu, said the affected Nursing Officers were within the ages of 48 and 56 years.

She complained that they were understaffed and urged the management to look into the matter of recruitment of more nurses.

Investigation revealed that due to a recent directive by the management to all heads of department that ad-hoc staff who were initially engaged and were being paid through the Internally Generated Revenue of the hospital should stop work, the regular staff have been over burdened with work load.

A senior doctor who wants to remain anonymous lamented that by next year, 2020, the planned disengagement of Ad-hoc Staff would immensely add to the overbearing workloads on the doctors and nurses.

He said that the UPTH management had engaged the ad-hoc staff to relieve the staff of workloads because of the increasing number of patients who daily seek medicare in the hospital.

It was learnt that the management was acting on directives from Federal Ministry of Health to ensure financial prudence in Federal Teaching Hospitals.

Unfortunately, stress is something that most Nigerians don't talk about, talkless of treat.

A lot of the nurses I know are lazy and careless. Something else is responsible for their deaths certainly not the workload. Workload and most truck-pushers I know are still alive?

Scheduling routine weekend exercise sessions plus yoga classes every last Saturday of the month will both improve the workers' lives and enrich gym instructors. Sadly, who suggestion help? The staff themselves will kick against such a policy, calling it unnecessary stress.

Stress kills. But many people do not understand the threat pose by stress. Stress is not a normal life.
