Minister of Health Jonas Chanda has said the primary roles of health care givers is to save life, help patients and do them no harm. Dr. Chanda said health workers have to be taken care of very well and motivated for the to carry out these roles diligently.
He said there was need for hospitals to have all essential equipment such as x-ray machines which are working at all time as a way of motivating workers.
“The number of self-diagnostic and home treatment have increased as a result, because patients are not receiving the much needed services,” he said
He further said that priorities have to be set out right to ensure all services that patients need are made available.
The minister said this when he toured Arthur Davison Children’s Hospital (ADCH) to appreciate the operations at the facility.
Meanwhile, Dr. Chanda has instructed Ndola District Health Director to fire nurses who are illegally charging patients at clinics.
And ADCH Senior Medical Superintendent Jonathan Mwansa told the minister that ADCH was facing various challenges with the x-ray machine being the major problem.
That’s true… Health workers deserve a lot of motivation
Health care givers are of Paramount importance in the delivery of quality health services to our people and as such they should be motivated enough to help them do their work deligently
Will X-Ray machine cost $17million? Do you have to give a contract to Honey Bee to buy a X-Ray machine?
Motivate the health worker enough
We also need to pray for them. As a born again I prayed for them at church this morning.
KIKIKKIKIKI Motor mouth thinks the congregation is going to vote for him :)) :))
I ended up taking my relative to a private clinic after we were told at a teaching hospital to go and get a scan from a private clinic.
After obtaining the scan at the private clinic, we took the results back to the teaching hospital where the results were interpreted for us.
All national public services are critically important; and the human resource in the respective departments must be appreciated and well looked after.
Tikki they already vote for us. So what is your point you evil pagan?
Give them more money
Your president keeps looting money and using it as his personal bank account. How in 2021 we fail to pay salaries to civil workers. How can they save lives when they cannot feed themselves and pay bills? Get rid of Edgar Chagwa Lungu the thief! $10 Million to pay an international company to do his campaigns so he can win elections? This dude is a joke! GET RID of HIM!
