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.
The same doctor assaulted her two weeks earlier without apology. Assuming we believe the nurse's version to be true.

Obviously the nurse was already upset with him and rightly so. The sphyg is private property of the nurse.
The doctor's behavior is disappointing. He should be far more cultured than that. Alienating nurses is unhelpful. He should have learnt that as a student already.

U won't understand me because u are selfish
Ask yourself why the Whites are better than us?
Ask yourself why everyone is rushing to Canada & USA? Because they are considerate.
Health workers are supposed to show more compassion, but with a Blackman the case is different. She knows the purpose the doctor was using it for was for health reasons, that is more than enough reason any considerate human being should have waited for the doctor to finish using it. The doctor over reacted & was very wrong of him, but u see the nurse in question, she is not a good person.
You are being emotional so objectivity is suffering...

Selflessness should cut across board and not expected from the downtrodden....

BTW, you are not adding up. In advance societies the doctor could be facing the crime of conversion for expropriating another person's property without permission.

Leadership is influence.

Let doctors lead with service and humility.

No doctor in US or Canada wears pride and empty pomposity on their sleeves...

joyandfaith:

both of them were wrong. how could nurse be trepessing her professional boundaries? if she has problem with house officer, she reports him officially to his consultant. if doctor wants anything in ward or clinic, he should ask nurse in charge. we must learn do things professionally to avoid unnecessary friction
You will keep missing till you cotton on to the fact that nurses are also major stakeholders in the health service delivery sector.

The snobbery is totally uncalled for ...

I understand it is an African thing : Most Africans only find fulfilment when others are debased/humiliated.

I will not take this article seriously because I can see clearly that it was posted to defame the doctor.

Notice how only his name was written in full. The assaults were also described in detail with exaggerated anatomy lingo.

The writer of this article and the moderator who pushed this to the front page should be very ashamed of themselves.
This is the most fair comment on this post so far......
The writer is 99% likely to be a nurse. This is a cheap way of getting public sympathy. Bringing a personal sphygmomanometer to the ward is the least likely of event. The ACNO in question might have wanted using her position to stop the guy from using the sphygmomanometer or the guy may think it’s the Hospital’s property. The cuff of a sphygmomanometer is the last thing u will use if really one wants to inflict trauma on someone...... So it’s likely a lie.
There is likely a misunderstanding btw them and the dr might have overreacted. This, the writer exaggerated in his post.

This is not the way to go. You can be sued as an accomplice in character assassination. For a case that has not been established by any disciplinary body or court of competent jurisdiction and you are littering internet with the doctor's picture.

Don't think your identity here is anonymous, that will be your greatest undoing because it will only take few clicks on computer to get your identity.

Please pull this pictures down until this is verified from the hospital management.

And you are already jumping to conclusions based on a half baked story?

The said Doctor,have you heard his part of the story?

I can tell you for one that the Sphygnomannometer the woman was dragging like an illiterate probably never belonged to her but to the hospital..

Learn to read between the lines and hear the two sides of a story before judging a case.

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.

Njemanze is a Royal family in Owerri capital of IMO state, they are highly Educated and Royal. They are the untouchables of IMO state.
Re: Doctor Assaults Senior Nurse In FMC, Owerri by mandax: 8:47pm On Jan 28, 2020
I am a doctor, you are a common nurse - that was all on Njemanze's silly mind.
The nurse should have reported the first assault to the police. What's the point for in-house investigation when a crime of assault occassioning harm was committed? In-house investigators are not permitted by law to investigate a criminal offense like that.

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.

The BOLDED reveals your bias, or should I say exhibited your hatred towards medical doctors.

I am not in support of any assault at work place or elsewhere, irrespective of field, age, profession or years of experience.

You're showing your dislike for those doctors. Could it be you are a nurse or other health professional?

I think the name Njemanze is popular, and I don't know if they have political influence. That might play a role in the decision, and not necessarily his profession. If he did what you said, it is totally wrong, and no profession or colleague can condole a glaring assault.

But why are you making it not only a thing of profession, but gender issue?

Does that story sound coherent to u? Or have u just refused to think?

U r now taking ur stand based on the account of the defendant with no recourse to that of the accused? OK.. Oshey justice Okon abang.

Let me also tell u that this is no case. The tail part of the story is actually the aim of the concocted story, to play the victim. The hospital MD is a Dr, the HCS is a Dr... So cos they are Drs, they should kill younger colleagues for JOHESU to feel happy and have gained justice? Is a lie.

FYI, that HO didn't touch that woman.. Is all a make up. U don't know how health workers treat house officers that's why u will sit on NL page and judge.

There's no Dr that will have words with a nurse and after such ve left, he will follow her and slap her from the back.. Haba!
How on earth is this possible. And the same Dr will hit d same nurse with sphig tubing next 2week.

Sorry bro, I know these people. They are called the accusers of brethren. That's what they are.

JOHESU should leave house officers alone they aren't the one holding the so called entitlement.
Some of them have gone to read medicine and have come out to see them as below in the system. Is just like that globally. They should stop hating and making mountain from a molehill

This is how all of them came together to play the victim and the HCS and the other stupid woman wrapa Drs gave my colleague extension just to please them some years back.
They are here again. Evil JOHESU.

You are the only sensible person on this front page. Without hearing from the other party, I can swear with My Life, that this NEVER happened this way, I Can Swear with everything in me, that it NEVER happened.
The way people come online to write nonsense and discredit people is terrible, why are we like this?

I work in a hospital, and I particularly know how this nurses (especially the older ones) could be so mean, arrogant, insolent and violent with doctors (especially the junior ones) perhaps the believe that this one na small pikin, and they treat them with utmost disrespect.
This NEVER happened! A house officer, will never assault an ACNO, despite what this doctors face, I have never seen a case where any of them went physical. In most cases, those older nurses know many people in high powers, so the younger doctors stand no chance.
It just pains me so much what was written here, it's really hurtful. I understand the whole scenario and it's not alright when people distort a story against other people.

The story of slapping her for asking to document for not catheterizing a patient is even stupid, follow a HO outside to tell him how documentation is important, that will NEVER happen with those nurses. If them no use mouth finish u for patient front.

Please stop all this nonsense of tarnishing people's name, please, it's unfair.

God will bless u exceedingly.

Leave useless and senseless nairalanders to be opening their dirty mouth.

Working as a doctor in Nigeria is hell.
Your greatest problem more than lack of genuine drugs is CHALLENGES FROM SUBORDINATES.
Even if you are a consultant, many of them who are old enough to be your parent and are overdue for retirement will look down on you.
The nurses also use their great numbers and
b- powers to get to the oga on top and wind you down.
The health organisation is such that even a house officer on GL10 is team head over the DNS on GL 16. but it downy work that way in Nigeria and that is main reason the government health sector will always fail.

slow post by a slow person. Very easy to spot someone who wanted to study medicine, but wasn't smart enough to get it. Where in the world does nurses earn more than doctors??

Canadian doctors still protested last year on behalf of other health workers due to the difference between what they and other health workers earn. They protested that other health workers salary should be upgraded.

Back to the topic, I can bet my left testicle the H.O would be punished (employment terminated) provided the claim by OP is true except the guy is a son on a very influential person. The medical profession has zero tolerance for indiscipline especially from a junior cadre.

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.
This is not necessarily true. The fact that they are doctors does not mean they have to tolerate trash from someone like this Nnena of a guy. If that is allowed there, it is as a result of personal flaws on the part of their MD. The unions must rise up against this nonsense. That guy must not be allowed to finish his house job there and that must be an albatross he carries for the rest of his career life. He is foolish, arrogant and undisciplined. The woman in question should sue him and the hospital in event that attempts are made to cover this up or handle it trivially.

Judging from most of the comments here actually, it shows that most Nigerians are envious of most doctors and would show their envy at the slightest opportunity.

number 1, this story is not even 5% true and everyone who believed is a fool. if it ever happened, it could be the other way round.

I'm an House Officer currently in one of the Nigerian hospitals and I know how annoying these CNOs acts especially to house officers. There is no way an House Officer would slap an ACNO and heaven wouldn't have come down. You can't even slap a student Nurse without their matrons coming for your head.
