Health workers tasked on morals

Fisayo Akinduro,  Osogbo


Health workers in Nigeria have been urged to uphold the morals and civil regulations that guide their profession rather than seeing patients as inferior to them.
Owalare of Ilare-Ijesa, Oba Adejoro Otebolaku gave the advice at the annual general meeting and scientific conference of the Association of Resident Doctors, LAUTECH Teaching Hospital in Osogbo.
While charging health workers to be more careful with the lives of their patients, he maintained that life is a gift from God.
The monarch charged medical doctors to deal with people with the fear and spirit of God, who does all things.
According to the Monarch, doctors must be able to maintain practicable interaction and good relationship with their patients.
“In your discharge of duties, I urge you to uphold the moral and civil regulations that guide your profession, respect the dignity of your patients and do not see them as inferior human beings in your interaction with them” Oba Otebolaku stated.
He also charged them to revive the hope of existence in people rather than denigrating them in the line of their duties.
“Maintain good doctor-and-patient relationship, counsel them and let them see hope in their existence even in their sickness.”
He appreciated Governor Gboyega Oyetola for establishing Osun Health Insurance Scheme (OHIS) for civil servants and the general public in Osun State.
“It is a good initiative to improve health care delivery in the state, but my advice for government is to be more careful in the accreditation of hospitals that are used for the scheme, only hospitals with good facilities and personnel should be approved for the scheme.
“Above all, I commend the State Governor for the introduction of the scheme and I call on people to make use of the opportunity”, the monarch added.
