Our lives are in danger – Ampia-Ajumako Nurses cries out

Nurses at Ampia-Ajumako, a Community in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District in the Central Region have called on the District Chief Executive for Ajumako Enyan Essiam District, Hon. Emmanuel Ransford Kwesi Nyarkoh and the Member of Parliament Hon. Ato Forson to come to their aid.

According to the nurses, their safety have been exposed due to the poor security at the Hospital. Lack of electricity at the hospital has been a major reason why they close around 3:00 PM each day considering their security. One of the nurses, Marian Acquah noted that they are facing numerous challenges, as they have no place to sleep and also walk a long distance before reaching the workplace.

The Community has constructed a structure for nurses’ quarters which has been abandoned in the last 2 years. A source revealed that due to the situation, the hospital can only boast of three female nurses currently putting their lives at risk.

Speaking to Kessben Fm/Tv Central Regional Correspondent Nana Tawiah, some Residents in the Ampia-Ajumako Community also expressed concerns about the poor state of their Hospital.

The residents bemoaned that they have to travel to Ajumako for treatment because the nurses at Ampia-Ajumako Community close early.

“Sometimes people die when going to the hospital due to the distance involved. The nurses don’t stay at the hospital so we have to always go to their homes and call them before attending to us which is not helping the community. We are therefore appealing to the government to come to our aid” Said a resident of the community.

The Assembly Man for Ampia-Ajumako, Hon. Francis Pobi also appealed to the government to support them with electricity extension to all the new sites in the community. He pleaded that their Clinic needs an electricity extension to help the nurses stay comfortably.
