Resident Doctors Issue 14-day Ultimatum To Enugu Govt To Employ More Doctors by DamnnNiggarr: 12:53pm On Nov 19, 2023
The Association of Resident Doctors of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology Teaching Hospital (ESUTH) has issued a 14-day ultimatum to Enugu State Government to employ more doctors and ensure security.

This is contained in a communique issued on Saturday after the end of the Emergency General Meeting of the association in ESUT Teaching Hospital, Parklane, Enugu held on Friday, Nov. 17, 2023.

The communique was jointly signed by the President of ARD-ESUT, Dr Chukwunonso Ofonere and its Secretary General, Dr Ikemefuna Nnamani.

The statement called on the management of ESUTHTeaching and the Enugu State Government to declare state of emergency on the employment of Doctors in the hospital.

According to the statement, the EGM observed that it is now 120 days since the government through the Secretary to the State Government promised the ARD of employment of Medical Officers and Resident Doctors, and we are yet to see an advert to this effect.

It said that the EGM was intimated of the Management’s proposed plan to ensure the safety of Doctors and other health workers in the hospital.

The statement noted that the EGM had resolved to extend the initial 14 days ultimatum by another 14 days ultimatum which shall end on Dec. 1.

“First, the management should declare state of emergency on the employment of doctors in the hospital. There should be an urgent approval for the recruitment of medical officers, resident doctors and House Officers in the hospital.

“This recruitment should be focused especially at the Accident and Emergency Department, Surgery Department, Internal Medicine Department, Paediatrics Department, Obstetrics and Gynaecology Departments,”.

It noted that resident doctors that had left the institution in the past four years were never replaced.

“Secondly, management should ensure implementation of safety policies to protect her workers against physical attacks and kidnap within one week as promised by the Chief Medical Director (CMD).

“Thirdly, the immediate implementation of the 2023 Medical Residency Training Fund (MRTF) as our counterpart in other states; even as attached to this communique is the list of the eligible doctors and the financial implications,” it said.

The statement noted that the EGM resolved that after 14 days and the above demands were not met, industrial harmony could not be guaranteed.

Government should take this ultimatum seriously and recognize the potential consequences of inadequate staffing, such as increased workloads and compromised patient care.

Also prompt action is necessary to address the underlying concerns and work towards a viable solution.

There should be another way the people can force the government to pay salaries and fulfill their financial obligations without going on strike.
These officials hardly fear strike anymore because it is still the masses that will suffer the consequences.

Maybe when the aggrieved workers start kidnapping the family and loved ones of these stupid politicians, to only be released after they have paid the salaries up to date, they'll start taking things seriously

The whole country needs millions of doctors. That's a fact. The sad part is many of them are leaving to other countries that treat them better.

Oga read my comments very well.
Yes Enugu ard say they don't have enough doctors.
They are only echoing what is happening in all the other states if the federation.

My bringing in abuja doesn't negate the premise of the thread.

It infacts, makes the points more frightening

No cause for alarm as long as it's not an APC controlled state. Developers don't have any problem in their developed backward states.
