The availability of well being care providers is a vital proviso in each society and the nation at massive. It’s in opposition to this background that each authorities in an try and safeguard the lifetime of its citizenry ensures that well being care companies are available. What would turn out to be of a society or nation with a inhabitants of ailing well being? What turns into of the productive manpower?
There are dire penalties for a nation that relegates healthcare supply to the background. Productiveness just isn’t solely affected however such a society or nation stands a better chance of extinction since mortality price will enhance astronomically.
The folks of Afram Plains [an agrarian community] haven’t been ignored of the share of this nationwide cake-health care providers. There are hospitals, clinics and CHPS compounds in nearly each main city on this a part of the countryside.
However what has turn into of the tradition of healthcare supply by healthcare professionals in these hospitals, clinics and CHPS compounds in Afram Plains? I’ve been propelled to write down this text after I visited the Presbyterian well being centre at Tease, the district capital of Afram Plains south constituency.
The very fact is incontrovertible and I can’t mince with words-the healthcare supply system at Tease Presbyterian Well being Centre is subsequent to nothing, and nothing good to jot down residence about. This can be a well being centre the place human dignity has been rendered as absolute trash. Disrespect for shoppers has climbed onto a legendary standing. I don’t intend to, by this text point out any names however need to clearly state my place on the actions and inactions of healthcare professionals at this healthcare centre.
Oh however let me first ask “is healthcare supply a proper or privilege” Properly your guess could also be nearly as good as mine. Do not these healthcare staff know that “a sound thoughts lives in a wholesome physique”?
Let me rapidly provide you with a routine concerning the wack well being supply system right here. It is a true account of what I witnessed after I visited the healthcare centre.
“A mum or dad brings in her sick youngster at about 10:06 am, pulse and temperature is checked inside a matter of 5 minutes. The sick youngster is then taken to the lab for check. The laboratory technician after choosing the blood pattern leaves his submit/room [with the lab office opened] solely to return after an hour and thirty minutes to take care of a now queuing purchasers who’ve gone by way of the preliminary phases of pulse and temperature checks. [ Had the microscope been stolen after his return what would be his story to tell?] He then arms the lab report back to the mother or father of the sick youngster thirty minutes after his return. This sick youngster is then taken to the consulting room to see the one and solely supposed Physician who reported to work at about 10:30 am. They spend about 10 minutes within the consulting room after which medicine have been prescribed to be taken on the dispensary for a payment. On the dispensary once more, one other drama unfolds. The dispensary attendants are on break having fun with their meals to the complete glare of purchasers. They subsequently ask the father or mother of the sick youngster to attend patiently whereas they do justice to their meals. And so they spent nicely over 40 minutes on their meal.”
All these dramatic scenes are showcased at this well being centre with none one to oversee what goes out and in of this well being centre. Oh maybe it is for the federal government and everyone knows what authorities employees do at their locations of labor. I wager you’ll be able to’t faux you knoweth not.
Clearly give a picturesque view of the incident. Now assuming with out admitting that this sick baby is in an emergency and desires pressing medical therapy what would have grow to be of the state of affairs? For the kid to die and cry foul afterwards. In truth, the welfare of shoppers will not be on the coronary heart of those so known as well being professionals. One other thoughts boggling drama I witnessed was how these officers had been transferring from side to side from one workplace to the opposite and discussing points greatest identified to them while purchasers have been struggling in lengthy queues in wait of remedy.
Whereas I would not wish to be seen as overly essential, it’s equally vital that a few of these healthcare staff are cautioned with instant impact to desist from their “I do not care” angle displayed at their workplace. The insatiable urge for food by well being care staff to humiliate and embarrass purchasers is one thing means out of well being care apply.
It beats my wildest creativeness why individuals wearing white, inexperienced and white, brown and so on. mandated to supplied well being care supply to the individuals deal with shoppers as if they’re doing them a fantastic service. Aren’t they paid for providers they render?
The sooner an effortful try is geared in direction of redeeming the picture of this healthcare centre, the higher it will be for all of us. It has attracted a nasty identify for itself for much too lengthy.
