The Real Heroes Of Nipah: Kerala Nurse Writes Moving Post On How They Helped Patients

Ruby Sajna, a nurse at Kozhikode Medical College Hospital, shared an emotional post about the recovery of a Nipah-affected patient. The death of Lini, a nurse who worked at Perambra hospital in Kerala, after contracting the Nipah Virus from a patient she attended to, had pushed the medical fraternity into a pall of gloom.
Now, a nurse working at Institute of Chest Disease at the Government Medical College Hospital in Kozhikode, where several Nipah Virus patients are being treated, has shared a heart-warming post that talks about how selflessly the medical staff have been attending to patients.
In a Facebook post, Ruby Sajna, a nurse at KMCH wrote ecstatically about the recovery of a 19-year-old nursing student, who had recently tested positive for Nipah Virus.
Stating that Ajanya, the nursing student is in the path of recovery from the deadly disease, nurse Ruby narrates how this recovery has come as a source of immense happiness for the team.
“She was brought in at the same time nurse Lini was brought to the hospital for treatment. Her (Ajanya) recovery gives us unparalleled happiness,” Ruby wrote in Malayalam.
Ajanya, she writes, was admitted in a critical state – having been affected by myocarditis, and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, she also showed signs of encephalitis.
Ruby recalled, “She came into our hands in a state of semi-consciousness. This was perhaps the first time that a Nipah affected patient recovered from such a fatal state. This was one instance when I understood what it means to be proud and inexplicably happy.
She also wrote that even as the media widely discussed the Nipah Virus and the government’s handling of the crisis, there were numerous nurses who worked tirelessly, away from the limelight.
“Both audio and visual media in Kerala and society have been discussing the Nipah Virus and government interventions continuously. Wrapped in polythene covers, wearing N-95 masks, which makes it tough for us to breathe freely and with three layers of hand gloves it is the nursing community that attends to Nipah-affected patients in hot and humid rooms, but that is often not spoken about. More than the recognition that we get through such discussions, we are more gratified when someone like Ajanya comes back,” she wrote.
Ruby added, “It was when I witnessed how the bodies of Nipah victims were being taken away from the hospital, that I began to think what the value of humans in this world is. Even when their own families stood away from the bodies, the staff did their duty without any issues.”
Nurse Ruby said that the recovery of the nursing student was the collective victory of the medical staff.
“Even when our small mistakes get amplified and reported in the media, the media should also understand the brave and in a way, scary situation we are now dealing with. Even as the nursing student’s recovery has given us happiness, our duty is not over; we now move on to other patients who need our care,” she wrote.
Speaking about the nursing student’s condition, a doctor who did not wished to be named, told The Times of India:
“She was in a very serious condition and there were episodes of seizures and we had to give her ventilator support initially. But she responded very well to treatment using Ribavirin tablets. She has now been shifted from ICU to an observation ward. With tests repeatedly turning negative, we can say that she has recovered.”
Ruby’s post has resonated with scores of people from Kerala, who have lauded the selfless service carried out by the nursing staff. The post, which was uploaded on June 2, has received more than 18,000 shares so far.

Dr Isabelle Skinner: The New CEO of The International Council of Nurses

From outback to Geneva: Mount Isa nurse to lead 20 million at the International Council of Nursing
Other than prime ministers or presidents, few people can empathise with the pressure of acting on the behalf of 20 million people. But that is what Dr Isabelle Skinner has been elevated to do in her appointment as the chief executive officer of the International Council of Nursing (ICN).
As a federation of more than 130 national nursing associations, including the Australian College of Nursing, Dr Skinner will soon represent more than 20 million nurses worldwide.
“[The ICN] is a mechanism for nurses to influence policy, and that’s at a global level,” Dr Skinner said. “The job is based in Geneva in Switzerland, it’s a long way from Mount Isa.”
The ICN began in 1899 and strives to give nurses a voice in creating the best practices globally — something Dr Skinner said is not always an easy thing.
“Most nurses work for health departments so it’s actually quite difficult for an individual nurse to have a strong voice on policy issues,” she said.
“So all of the council of national nursing organisations get together every couple of years and think about what it is and that we want to really focus on … for the next two years.
“Then we’ll be working with the World Health Organisation or the United Nations to try and address some of the issues that are really important to nurses.”
Nursing in the early days
Dr Skinner, currently a senior research fellow for James Cook University’s Mount Isa Centre for Rural and Remote Health, became at nurse at age 17 and has worked in numerous roles.
After completing training in the Royal Brisbane Hospital her first job was at Cloncurry Hospital.

“I’ve worked as a remote area nurse. I’ve been and midwife in neonatal intensive care. I’ve been a public health nurse. I’ve been a nurse manager and DON. And I’ve been a nurse researcher and a teacher,” she said.
Dr Skinner not only moved roles, but also locations — the Northern Territory and Katherine region in the mid-1980s, then through the nineties in WA’s Kimberley on the Dampier Peninsula.
It was in Broome she worked for the Kutjungka Health Service, and most recently she was back up in the Northern Territory out in Arnhem Land.
While her love for the profession has not wavered since she was a teenager, the practice of nursing has gone through major changes.
“When I first started, nurses were still trained in hospitals and so that was a very big change for nursing to move to the university sector,” Dr Skinner said.
“We’ve also moved to evidence-based practice. Certainly, when I started, you were told what to do by a nurse-in-charge. You just followed what they said.”
The benefit of remote nursing
While there is a widespread perception that some of the best career opportunities in healthcare come from metropolitan centres that are fitted with the latest technologies, Dr Skinner said she believed remote Australia was just an advantageous.
“You only get what you seek, and so if you seek to stay and in one place then that’s what you’ll get,” she said.
“But if you really want something different you can do that from anywhere. It doesn’t matter where you are.
“In fact, the chief nurse for the World Health Organisation comes from the Cook Islands, so it really doesn’t matter how remote you are. You can achieve, whatever it is you use seek.”
Dr Skinner will begin her role with the International Council of Nursing in Geneva in August.

With 32 years of experience as a nurse, including progressive leadership, consulting and board experience, Dr Skinner has run her own research and consultancy business for the last four years, for which she was a finalist in the Telstra Business Woman of the Year for the Northern Territory. Dr Skinner was the State Commissioner for the Northern Territory and has extensive experience on the Boards of not-for-profit member organisations such as Girl Guides Australia and CRANAplus. She is a Fellow of CRANAplus, the Australian national health professional organisation for remote health practitioners and is an Aurora Award recipient for her leadership and advocacy for remote health.

“I look forward to working with the ICN Board and all of our National Nursing Organisations to advance the standing of nurses and nursing globally. “ Dr Skinner said, “Nurses are the health systems’ biggest resource and are there in communities around the world preventing illness, monitoring, treating and caring for people across the lifespan. This is an exciting time for nurses to use our collective voice to lead in transforming our health systems and improving the health of our global community.”

Dr Skinner takes up the position currently being held by Interim CEO, Professor Thomas Kearns, who has led the organisation for the past nine months, continuing the transformation and structural changes needed to ensure that ICN continues as the global voice of nursing.

Chhattisgarh Nurses Forced to Call off Strike in Return for ‘Assurances’

Nurses working at government hospitals across Chhattisgarh called off their strike on Saturday night after getting an ‘assurance’ from the state government. More than 3,000 nurses had resorted to the strike on May 18 under the banner of Chhattisgarh Paricharika Karmachari Kalyan Sangh (CPKKS), raising a series of demands, including pay scale revision and promotions. After several round of negotiations, the protesting nurses were assured that a committee would take a decision within 45 days on the demands.

The six demands are: giving the staff nurses the grade 2 category and seventh pay commission on Rs. 4,600 pay grade, equal pay for equal work, increase in nursing allowance and other incentives, ensuring that nursing quarters are close to the hospital, and bridging the shortfall in nursing staff.

CPKKS pointed out that in other states, staff nurses get the pay grade of Rs. 4,600 while in Chhattisgarh, they get the pay grade of Rs 2,800. CPKKS has been raising these demands for the past three years. When the state government did not fulfil the promises it made in this regard, the nurses went on strike.

In response, the BJP government on May 29 invoked the Essential Services Maintenance Act, 1979 (ESMA), terming the strike unconstitutional, and asked the nurses to resume work. However, the nurses refused to back down even as talks between the Directorate of Health Services and the union failed.

On June 1, as many as 607 nurses were arrested as they had continued the strike after the invocation of ESMA. 227 of the arrested nurses, including some who were pregnant, were lodged in the Raipur jail. CPKKS termed this an attempt by the government to suppress the peaceful protest using the police.

“Some of the nurses who were arrested today are pregnant and yet, they have not been released,” said a CPKKS member while talking to media.

“They were arrested in the morning but no food was provided to them till the evening. In the jail, 10 nurses went on a hunger strike. One of the nurses fainted. After being released, the nurses complained that they were harassed inside the jail and the women were not allowed to feed their children. The nurses protesting outside continued to do so despite the rain. In the jail, there was no arrangement for toilets,” JSA Chhattisgarh noted, pointing out the rights violations which had occurred.

“The nurses were even told to drink the water that was being used in the toilets. Moreover, they reported that the jail guards misbehaved,” the JSA briefing added.

Meanwhile, the DHS Ranu Sahu said that “the nurses would be released if they agree to come back on work”.

However, the CPKKS said that they had been mentally harassed and forced to call off the strike. They added that they were under a lot of political pressure due to which they called off their strike despite none of their demands being met.

Kwara Nurses Suspend Strike Because a Nurse Was Made Commissioner for Health

The National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) Kwara State chapter, has suspended its strike, which commenced on April 26.

Joseph Adekanye, the state chairman of the association, stated this on Monday, during a Press Conference at the Nurses House Secretariat in Ilorin.

Mr Adekanye disclosed that the nurses decided to suspend the strike “to honour a Nurse, Rifun Kolo, who was appointed Commissioner for Health, by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara.

According to him, the association has decided to allow one of their own, a nurse, appointed as commissioner, to help the government to resolve some of the challenges in the health sector.

He said: “The commissioner came on board while we are on strike, but we have decided to give him the benefit of the doubt, between now and six months.

“If the government is serious, a space of six month`s is enough to address the issues that has been brought to the attention of the government.

Mr Adekanye listed some of the challenges the Kwara nurses were facing to include, request for 100 percent implementation of Consolidated Health Salary Structure (CONHESS).

He said it was long overdue and that the nurses agreed to 10 per cent increase over the current 50 per cent CONHESS.

The chairman appealed to the state government to work hard to ensure the implementation of the CONHESS, to reduce the mass exodus of nurses and midwives from public service for greener pastures.
