    ZANZIBAR nurses have said they were facing serious challenges in carrying out their duties, as the ratio of a nurse to patients stands at 1:50. In their message during the occasion to mark World’s Nurses Day, they expressed the need for the government to consider employing more nurses in health facilities for them, to be able to provide standard services.

    “In addition, we have not been provided with uniform for more than 15 years now, the salary is very low, no overtime and motivation during epidemic outbreaks such as cholera and we are also in short of working tools,” they said in their message at Bwawani Hotel.

    Chief Nursing Officer, Othman Mussa Juma and a nurse Asha Abdallah Said, who read the message on behalf of other nurses, further cited limited chances for further studies and long working hours, as extra problems besetting the health providers. “We are really working under difficult conditions.

    For example, only two nurses care for about 60 patients in the maternity ward. We have been raising these concerns for a long period and we again kindly ask the government to do something urgently,” Mr Mussa said.

    The minister for Health and Social Welfare, Mr Sultani Mohamed Mugheiry and Ministry’s Principal Secretary (PS), Dr Mohamed Saleh Jidawi, said they were aware of a myriad of challenges facing the nursing professions in Zanzibar, but asked the nurses to be patient, while the government was working on their problems.

    “The government is working on nurses problems and hopefully nurses will get good news on new salary structure and other remunerations next financial year that begins in July. Let us be committed to our work, while the government is working on your concerns,” Dr Jidawi said.

    Mr Mugheiry further implored the nurses to be ethical, refrain from corruption, laziness, stigmatization of patients and other vices. On her part, First Lady Mrs Shadya Karume who graced the occasion, asked nurses and other Zanzibaris acquiring higher education abroad, to return home and serve the people instead of sticking to foreign lands.

    Meanwhile, MARY GWERA reports that Tanzania Nurses and Midwives Council (TNMC), yesterday launched a project that seeks to reinforce ethics among nurses in the country.
    Speaking during the launching ceremony held at the Karimjee grounds in Dar es Salaam, the Minister of State, President’s Office Public Service Management, Mrs Hawa Ghasia, said the move will help improve health services provision to patients.

    “Let me take this opportunity to applaud TNMC for such an idea, as the move will enable nurses in the country to further learn ethics and responsibilities, to be followed when offering health services to the public and reduce complaints raised by some patients,” Ghasia said.

    She said the project has come at the right time when the government was implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in line with the improvement of health services provision. The Chief Government Medical Officer, Dr Deo Mtasiwa, said ethic trainings will be offered to nurses at their working places, as well as in nursing colleges
