Gogo Chatinkha Maternity Care (Chamaca) Support chairperson Frank Taulo has called on nurses and other hospital staff to respect and take care of patients.
He made the call on Wednesday when he presented on behalf of United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) uniforms and other hospital materials valued at about K5 million to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital’s (QECH) Gogo Chatinkha Maternity Wing.
“UNFPA has done a tremendous job. Our staff will not look the same anymore and that will also boost their morale.
“We call on our nurses and other hospital staff to give patients the respect they need and always remember that as we wear this uniform, we are representing UNFPA, Ministry of Health and QECH. Rudeness will bring shame to the department as well as all these other players,” said Taulo.
He also expressed gratitude to UNFPA for the uniforms which he said are made of expensive materials.
The uniforms are for nurses, doctors and theatre staff. The donation also includes drapes, gowns and theatre scrubs.
QECH chief nursing officer Lucy Chigwenembe said the uniforms will motivate the hospital staff to work hard. n
