The National Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives, Kaduna State Council said the accusation of its members removing oxygen from a Two-day old baby at the Barau Dikko Hospital kaduna during the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) strike is unfounded and misleading.
This was contained in a statement by the Chairman of the Council, Ishaku Yakubu.
The statement stated that
investigations carried out by the union revealed how the nurse on duty helped to plead with the generator plant technician to allow the light in the hospital as a patient was on oxygen and to allow for the transfer of the same patient in the morning as the strike was to start midnight of 15th May 2021.
Contrary to the allegations and false statements, the statement emphasised, the nurse went extra miles to ensure the safety of the child and other patients.
