NARD president Decrys spate of attacks on medical professionals

National President , Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors Emeka Orji has said that the Chief Medical Director or Medical Director of any hospital in the country where a doctor or health worker is attacked by patients’ relatives in the line of duty should be queried.

Decrying the spate of attacks on medical professionals in recent times, NARD said it was the responsibility of the CMDs and the medical directors of hospitals to provide security to their staff.

Orji who is a Senior Registrar at the Department of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery, Federal Medical Centre Umuahia, Abia State lamented that hospitals in the country are not secure.

He said issuing a query would serve as deterrent to the CMDs and the medical directors who are neglecting the security of their staff.

Two medical workers at the hospital had earlier been assaulted by relatives of dead patients.The assault happened last month which led to the prosecution of the perpetrators — a father and his son. PUNCH
