Six Die in UPTH as Resident Doctors Continue Strike
« on: February 13, 2008, 10:29:19 AM »
Six patients on admission at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital have so far died due to the ongoing industrial action by members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors in the hospital.

The strike, which entered its fifth day on Tuesday, was embarked upon by NARD to force the hospital authorities to pay an 11-month arrears of the Consolidated Teaching Hospital Salary Scale owed its members.

While calling members of the association out for the strike, the local chairman of NARD, Dr. C. Amadi, had accused the management of the hospital of being noncommittal to the demands of the doctors.

However, our correspondent, who visited the hospital, reported that activities had almost come to a standstill as relations of patients continued to move them to other health facilities in the state.

Thats the only means being used................
in fighting the government here.
It's only that the senior medical consultants in UPTH are not up to their task
When the NARD went on strike in LASUTH & OOUTH last week.............
the senior medical consultants took over the ward until the strike was suspended.
