Municipal Chief Executive of New Juaben South Municipal Assembly, Hon. Isaac
Appaw-Gyasi has advised health professionals to desist and refrain from all bad
working ethics which is washing away the good image of the profession and rather
establish a good nurse - patient relationship which is one of the key means of
healing a patient.
He urged them to always keep in mind the principles of Florence Nightingale and emulate her good works.
He made this suggestion when he joined other distinguished personalities at the launch of the New Juaben Chapter of Ghana Registered Nurses' and Midwifery Association Week Celebration at St. Joseph hospital, Koforidua.
According to him, Health workers for that matter nurses have the responsibility to advocate for good health care for all people in the Municipality and the country as a whole.
He pointed out; achieving a Universal Health Care requires a robust nursing and midwifery to lead Primary Health Care System. This implies the production of adequate number of nurses and midwives to do a diligent work to solve the health needs of the people.
Hon. Gyasi reiterated nurses are great assets of the nation so government is ready to provide all the tools and equipment needed to deliver a good health care.
He mentioned, a good nurse or midwife is the one uses his or her vast knowledge, skills and tools available to him or her to uniquely bring relief to patients who visit their facilities with their problems.
