Nationwide Doctors’ Strike Shut Down Activities in HospitalsFeatured, Latest News, News Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014
The industrial action embarked upon by medical doctors has paralyzed activities in the federal and state-owned hospitals across the country, leaving on the line the lives of the helpless patients.
In some hospitals, out of frustration and pity for the patients, medical directors, nurses and pharmacists were forced to take over the consulting rooms and wards in a bid to ensure that patients who desperately needed medical attention are attended to, yet, the support services by them could not actively take care of the pathetic situation.
The situation at Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) Idi Araba, Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Ebutte-Metta; Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja and others in the Lagos Metropolis was the same – total shut down of services due to strike by medical doctors called by the Nigerian Medical Association, (NMA).
African Examiner sources indicated that it is the same story in the government hospitals across the country.
