North Western Province Permanent Secretary Augustine Seyuba says he is saddened with the situation prevailing at Kucheka Rural Health Center where male and female patients wards are in the same ward.
Mr. Seyuba said the idea of combining female and male patients in the same ward is not healthy and that it was not morally acceptable.
The PS was speaking when he toured Kucheka Rural Health Center yesterday.
Mr. Seyuba told management at the clinic to find means of separating male and female patients from sharing a ward.
And Kucheka Rural Health Center Nurse in – Charge Rodgers Muvumbo said lack of wards at the centre led to the combining of both expectant mothers and male patients in the same ward.
He said management at the clinic have since separated the male and female patients from sharing the same ward.
