Doctor Assaults Senior Nurse In FMC, Owerri by TriliOne: 10:58am On Jan 28, 2020
The incident happened on the 4th January which was on a Saturday, the house officer was said to be using the digital sphygmomanometer which belonged to the A.C. N.O in question to check himself. The A.C.N.O however asked him to stop using the sphyg as it belonged to her because he had a previous history of assault against her which she didn’t report. He ignored her & continued using it. This surprising disobedience and force for use of her personal item prompted her to disconnect the cuff on his arm from the machine and carried it (the machine) waiting so he can give her the cuff, however the describable aggressive House Officer unexpectedly, removed the cuff and used it to flog the Assistant Chief Nursing Officer on her neck up to her cheek, enough that she sustained injury on her neck.

The doctor in his aggressive suit also attempted to beat the second Nurse around who the scene tried to intervene upon sighting the scene of embarrassment. This happened at the A&E (Casualty) unit of the hospital on that fateful Saturday.

When I spoke with the affected Chief, she said she has written to the MD and Head of Clinical Services (H.C.S) through the H.O.D of Nursing Services Department. The best the H.C.S could do was to ask the House Officer in training- Nnanna Njemanze to apologize to the Nurse. I also asked her about the issue of a previous assault on her by the same h.o. She told me that towards the end of December, 2019, Nnanna Njemanze came to catheterize a female patient at the Casualty but the patient refused the procedure, hence she encouraged him to document patient’s refusal but he told her in exactly remembered sentence: “shut up! who are you to tell me what to do?”.

When they came aside, she went ahead to talk to him personally on the importance of his documentation to help exonerate himself from any negative implication and went ahead to wash her hands in the sink. While she was doing so, he gave her a slap on her ear from behind which affected her left ear and eye.

Everyone present were surprised and she merely spoke to him not to try it again as it was wrong. Only for him to take a step further barely 2 weeks from his first crime! If Nnanna Njemanze, a house officer could behave this way, it therefore means by the time he becomes a consultant, Nurses would have to run away from him and don’t forget, he may be in any hospital in any part of Nigeria for that matter. He didn’t even consider the age of the woman in question! Check how many years in service it would have taken her to climb to the level of an A.C.N.O (at least 12-13 years or more) definitely before Nnanna Njemanze entered the University to study Medicine.

Most annoyingly was another House Officer I personally approached at F.M.C about this issue and he told me precisely “forget that matter, e don die, dem don kill am. Nothing dey happen”. Really?, could that be true? Simply because he’s a doctor, the MD a doctor, the HCS also a doctor? Is that the reason for the high level of clear injustice?? But if that Nurse had retaliated, they would have known that Civil Service rule applies and the Nurse would have been going from one disciplinary panel and committee to another until they terminate her job.

Now, nobody has arisen to take strict action on this because he’s really not worth it. Such a person is a threat to other health workers, does not exhibit any knowledge of work place ethics and cannot relate healthily with other health workers. If you’re interested in this matter, you’re highly welcome to investigate this yourself.

Some people are just heartless sha. Keep professionalism aside. How can you raise your hand or an object to strike someone who's old enough to be your mom? What justification can you possibly provide?
If i be that Nurse pikin eh the doctor for collect.
I'm sure the hospital will kill this case because the victim is a nurse and a woman.

The medical director of the hospital is a doctor. The head of clinical services is a doctor. They will likely sweep this under the carpet to cover up for their colleague.

Not necessarily. Even if everybody there are doctors , he will still get served.

The nurse should sue for assault. Shikena.





That aside, I need a receiver that has POS offline 6 digits that accept manual or physical card. Huge money to be cashed out. No dulling.

They are just trying to creat something out of nothing.

But the nurse should have allowed the doctor use the equipment & take it home after. There was even no need dragging it with the doctor. It doesn't also tell well about her character.

Damnnnnn niggarrr
Although there are three sides to a story
1) the complainant own story
2) the accused own story
3)and the true story

Buy i must say our doctors for Nigeria own too much
Na here for Nigeria doctors dey behave anyhow

Go developed nations

Nurses earn more than doctors
Nurses are paid well more than doctors in developed countries


Na here our doctors for dey do gra gra
Them nor even know anything

That is why most of our consultants doctors dey fear to go developed countries because if them reach there
They are to start all over again by undergoing lots of exams

The mod that brought this to front page to defame the doctor, have you heard the doctor' s side of the story?

A write-up that was written by a nurse, and you expect him or her not to be biased in judgement.


MODIFIED: The doctor has been contacted and he was about writing a rebuttal to this article but ARD FMC Owerri asked him to hold on for the association official release tomorrow.

And the OP that posted this defamatory article, Are you aware that the said nurse slapped the doctor on 20th of December, 2019?.

Are you aware that this case has been settled by the hospital management?

Are you aware that the nurse in question has denied granting any interview or asked anybody to post such write-up on her behalf ?

The Nairaland mod that pushed this to front page without verification should do justice to push rebuttal statement once it is released.

Is this Nnanna Njemanze - UNN mcb. I hope this is not character assassination. The Nnanna I know and remember is quite smallish in stature and very jovial. He has no atom of disrespect in him. If possible, it is even easy to bully him sef.

It's the nurse property, not the hospital property. The doctor has no right using it without that woman's permission
