Kano government sacks 3 hospital heads, suspends doctors, nurses over negligence

The sacking of the Chief Medical Directors of three government hospitals in Kano State has been announced.

The sacking was approved by the executive secretary of Kano State Hospitals Management Board, Dr. Mansur Nagoda.

The affected hospitals are Imam Wali General Hospital, Abubakar Imam Urology Centre and Nuhu Bamalli Maternity Hospital.

He also announced their replacements with immediate effect.

Nagoda also approved the suspension of all doctors and nurses that were on duty for the evening and night shifts on Sunday, July 30, 2023.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Board’s public relations officer, Samira Sulaiman, and made available to newsmen Monday night.

According to the executive secretary, the decision was taken as a matter of urgency due to the negligence of the affected staff in carrying out their duties by absconding from their duty posts and leaving patients in the hands of students.

He warned that the Board would not condone negligence, late-coming, absconding from duty posts from any medical worker, adding that anyone found wanting would face sanctions in accordance with the civil service rules and regulations.

Nagoda called on other hospitals to buckle up as all facilities would be monitored closely in order to revive the health sector of the state.

Neglect of duty posts and carefree attitude towards the plights of patients are some of the bad attributes of healthcare givers in Nigeria.
