It has been reported that a nurse attached to a Primary Healthcare Centre at Mayne Avenue, Calabar, Cross River State, has been suspended alongside some other staff over alleged gross misconduct and negligence.
Their suspension was as a result of how they treated a pregnant lady who rushed to the facility on Friday evening. .
It was gathered that rather than attending to her, they demanded for N20,000 and later pushed her out because she couldn’t afford the fee, despite her labor pains.
The nurse, identified as Eme Bassey, also allegedly used mop stick to beat the lady, claiming that she bit her hand. .
Left with no other choice, the lady eventually went to the grass in front of the facility, where she struggled on her own to deliver the baby. .
Some aggrieved youth of the community later went into the PHC to drag the nurse out and it was then she reluctantly came out to help the woman deliver her placenta and finally let her into the facility.
When the case was reported to the Director General of Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Betta Edu, she suspended all the staff involved and said they would all face tough sanctions.
