Fake Nursing School Uncovered In Ikorodu, Lagos

The National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) says it has uncovered a health training institution operating illegally in Ikorodu area of Lagos State.  

Its Chairman in Lagos Chapter, Mr Olurotimi Awojide, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) when an investigation team visited the institution, Imperial School of Health Technology.  

NAN reports that the health training school is situated in an uncompleted building at Ita-Oluwo in Ikorodu, a Lagos suburb. Awojide said that the unaccredited institution, Imperial, would “only succeed in producing quacks”.  

He said nursing as a profession could not afford to have quacks in a system dealing with human lives. According to him, this informed the prompt investigation visit to the illegally operated institution.  

“Prompt action has to be taken when the school’s advertisement was seen on the Facebook, claiming to be a health institution offering courses such as Nursing, Midwifery and Health Inspector without accreditation.  

“The association has a list of accredited nursing schools and health institutions in Lagos State; so, it is a surprise when the school paraded itself as a health training institution to the innocent public.  

“Illegal institutions such as this one contribute to the problem of maternal mortality by producing half-baked health workers into the society,” Awojide said. He said after the investigative visit which confirm truly that the school is in existence and functioning, the next step is to close it down.  

“Now that we have confirmed that the school is functioning, the next step is to close down the school. “Then, we can go ahead to prosecute the owner so that it will serve as a deterrent to others that are planning similar thing,” Awojide said. He, however, admonished the students patronising such a school to ensure they enroll in an accredited institution.  

Awojide said that the students needed to know that they have to be registered with NANNM and get licenced to be gainfully employed with good organisations. “Do not waste your time and your parents’ money in this type of institution, if you do not have the necessary prerequisites to be a nurse.  

“It is better to go and study other courses, and not for you to go for this illegal programmes. ”With required five credits and intelligence, because intelligence is needed to know how the human body works, a serious and passionate student will get admission into the state School of Nursing,” he said.  

Reacting,Provost of the School, Mr Simeon Oye-Daniel, who spoke with NAN on telephone, denied operating an illegal health training institution.   Oye-Daniel said that the school was only training health assistants and not nurses. He said that after the two years course, the students would be issued Diploma certificate in Health Assistance.  

The provost said the school had been in existence since 2016, adding that accreditation for its Diploma Certificate was still being processed. A student, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed that the school was offering Nursing, Midwifery and Health Inspector courses.  

“I entered for the two years Diploma course, and we are in our second semester. “l was told that the school is in affiliation with a university in Abeokuta, and I intend to get a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing here. “We also go for Industrial Training (IT) in some private hospitals,” she said.(NAN)

Ghana Nursing and Midwifery Council Warns Public On Fake Facebook Account

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (N&MC) of Ghana on Tuesday warned the public against a fraudulent Facebook page which used its official logo and operated with the name “Nurses and Midwifery Council”.

According to the Council, in an attempt to secure unlawful gain on behalf of the Council the fraudsters have circulated several false correspondences targeted at innocent citizens.

Some of these circulations requested its trainees and practitioners to call some unidentified telephone numbers to transact business on behalf of the Council.

A statement issued in Accra, by the statutory mandated N&MC and copied to the Ghana News Agency, therefore, urged its members and the general public to be careful of the fraudulent Facebook page created in its name.

The statement signed by the Registrar of the Council said the N&MC is working with the appropriate state security agencies to arrest the operators of the fake account and called for cooperation from the public.

“The Registrar and Management of the Council wish to state categorically that the Facebook page operating with our logo and the name Nurses and Midwifery Council is not the official Facebook page of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Ghana.”

The statement Council cautioned the general public especially nursing and midwifery trainees and practitioners that any information displayed on the Nurses and Midwifery Council Facebook page was not from them, and any person who transacted business with the managers of the page did so at their own risk.

They further cautioned its members and the general public that all announcements and information from the Council would be published on its official website.

Other official social media handles were; Twitter; (NMCGH_Official), Instagram (nmcgh_official), Skype (nmcghana2016) and Emails to; for all information about the Council.

Ghana Bans Nurses, Doctors From WhatsApping, Facebooking And Selfie At Work

Ghana Health Service (GHS) as part of measures to instill discipline amongst health care providers in the country has reinforced the ban on the use of social media during working hours by health workers, a regulation which has been in force for more than a year now.

The regulation, however, gives exceptions to conditions where medical officers and practitioners may use the mobile phone gadgets to access information from the Internet that would rather expedite their services.

The ban is also extended to photography and selfie taking at the hospital especially by female workers with all sort of image filters on Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram, Snap chat among others.

The Deputy Chief Health Service Administrator of the Nkawie-Toase Government Hospital, Mr. Eric Frimpong, who made the confirmation on Otec FM’s ‘Nyansapo’ morning show on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, said the GHS instituted the regulation due to the changing trend of technology use by the medical practitioners, adding, doctors, pharmacists, nurses and security officers are not excluded from the regulation.

The ban on photo taking amongst health personnel, according to Mr. Eric Frimpong, was necessitated after photos of the late musician Ebony Reigns went viral on the social media suspected to have been taken by a mortuary attendant.

Mr. Eric Frimpong’s comments was in response to phone in segment by the public and victims of maltreatment in the hands of health professionals after a family has reported the death of their son due to the negligence and lack of beds at the Manhyia Government Hospital in Kumasi.

He intimated that ”the regulation has been in force for more than a year now and it is to sanitize the system. Those found culpable can be dismissed or charged with professional negligence. Every health practitioner is aware of the new regulations because it is a directive from the Director General of Ghana Health Service.”

However, he insisted that health professionals have the right to use their mobile phones to access information from the internet for information that would support their health care deliveries and for other emergency calls.

The Deputy Chief Health Service Administrator implored Ghanaians especially patients to volunteer information of misconduct among health care professionals to managers of health facilities to institute punitive measures rather than rushing to the media with the same complaints.

“There are senior nurse officers, health administrators, securities and senior officers at the hospitals who can attend to you whenever there is misconduct or disrespectfulness from a nurse. Don’t hesitate to take report medical officers who would be taking selfies or fidgeting with their phones especially when you need their services,” he explained.

Most Ghanaians who access healthcare deliveries in most hospitals in the country always complain of poor healthcare services and more patients have lost their lives in the process, a situation Ghanaians want to see action from the appropriate government institutions.

Shortage of Nurses Hit Philippines, Country Plans To Stop Sending Nurses Abroad

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) is planning to decrease the deployment of nurses to other countries, Secretary Silvestre Bello said on Wednesday.

Bello said they are looking at the possibility of lessening the number of medical professionals, including nurses, being sent overseas.

“We slowed down the deployment of construction workers earlier. Now, we want to include our nurses,” he said in an interview during the 2019 Kalayaan Job Fair in Manila.

“There could be a slowdown in the deployment of nurses because we also need our nurses, especially senior citizens,” he added.

Bello noted that he is contemplating on the plan after a dialogue with the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA), who sought his assistance to address the shortage of nurses in the country.

“All the while, I thought there is an oversupply of nurses. But I just learned that those graduating with nursing degrees and have passed the Board only train for two years and will go (abroad),” he added.

Bello said the government should do something by increasing the salaries of nurses for them to stay in the country.

“In order for them to not want to work abroad and just stay here, we should also consider increasing their salaries. And the President appears amenable to giving them that,” he said.

The DOLE chief said the salary increase for nurses would be discussed with the Department of Budget and Management.

Filipino nurses are in demand in countries in Europe, the Middle East, among others.

Early this year, the government has implemented a slowdown in sending construction workers to other countries, by as much as 90 percent due to the reported manpower shortage in the local construction industry stemming from the “Build, Build, Build” program in 75 projects.

Under the BBB program, the government is set to construct roads, bridges, airport, railways among others, covering 2017 to 2022, with a total budget of PHP8 trillion. (PNA)
