Government has implored medical staff countywide to stop enticing patients into aphrodisiac relations because it dents the good image of the medical profession.
Luapula Province Deputy Permanent Secretary Joyce Nsamba implored the medical staff at Mansa General Hospital during the combined graduation ceremony for St. Pauls and Mansa Schools of Nursing and Midwifery.
She disclosed that there has been some reports of some medical staff enticing patients into such engagements and the practice must come to an end.
The Deputy Permanent Secretary called on the graduating students to accept postings even in hard to reach and survive districts like the water logged Lunga where their services are critically required.
In moving a vote of thanks, one of the graduants Pius Kunda promised to uphold the nursing code of conduct in the discharge of their duties.
He said the graduants are ready to serve anywhere in Zambia where their services will be required.
