Nurse deny admitted child drugs for two days to punish mother over personal disagreements

Nkhotakota district hospital bi-annual report on safe motherhood indicates 51 newborn babies’ deaths from July – December 2014; the problem has been attributed to negligence of medical personnel although the tendency is failing to die at the hospital.

Kwataine: Unacceptable

Kwataine: Unacceptable

Despite the increased infant death, a nurse (Name withheld) on duty in pediatric ward on Thursday March 19 -20, 2015, left a 6 year old boy unattended medically for two days to punish the child’s mother over disagreements.

The child’s mother, Magret Phiri of Malunda village in the area of traditional authority (T/A) Mphonde in Nkhotakota district, disagreed with a nurse after she was found eating Nsima with friends in the ward contrary to the rules.

The nurse confronted Magret Phiri and vowed not to give her child medicine until she apologizes to her.

Regardless Phiri’s apology to the nurse, that day ended without her child getting medicine while the rest in the ward were given medicine as prescribed by doctors.

Confirming the incident Phiri said, “This is not my first time to come here. Some few weeks ago my child was again admitted here. He got treatment without any problem.

“Imagine, all my friends here get medicine but only my child is skipped, she wants him to die. She even said she doesn’t care even if my child collapses. That’s total inhumane from a mother like her.”

The child’s medicine rights violation was revealed in the second day when a journalist from Nkhotakota community radio Edward Kuwacha with other stakeholders were conducting a general cleaning exercise at the hospital.

When the nurse skipped a third time to give drugs to a child, Phiri confronted the nurse to be referred to any nearby hospital for assistance. The nurse, who again refused, banged the door and left.

Edward Kuwacha who at the time was cleaning the windows at the ward, saw all the ordeal and went to hear what went wrong between the two.

After hearing Phiri’s side he followed the nurse to negotiate on the issue but amazingly he also became a victim as the nurse shouted at him and was told mercilessly to have exaggerated the punishment to the child as she won’t assist the soonest as planned following his intervention.

“She shouted at me like a child. I later advised the mother to neither meet the District Hospital Officer (DHO) or the matron but unfortunately both were not around,” narrated Kuwacha.

When hospital’s public relations officer Samson Mfuyeni listened to the recorded voice of a child’s guardian, he initiated an investigation to which the responsible nurse agreed of the disagreement but refuted the allegation that the child was not given drugs.

Although the nurse contradicted the responsible doctor, who wondered why the child was not administered as prescribed. To him this was violation of the order of prescription.

According to the public relation officer, the nurse has been just given a strong warning on the conduct since she is the first offender.

Commenting on the matter, Malawi Health Equity Network (MHEN) Chairperson Martha Kwataine described the situation as unacceptable and unethical which need to be discouraged at all cost.

She went on to ask the victim’s mother and the journalist to lodge a complaint to the Malawi Nurses and Midwifery council so that the nurse should be summoned and disciplined if found guilty.

Kwataine said, “Nurses shouldn’t take advantage of the less privileged people. The child has the right to seek appropriate medical attention at all times from government hospitals. A child should not suffer because of the sins of the mother.

“Please, lodge a complaint with the   Malawi Nurses and Midwifery council, it should not end at hospital management level, this is a serious case.”

The biannual report which was represented last week indicates a total of 51 newborn babies died at Nkhotakota district hospital between the months of July to December of last year. Due to the problem in September last year, angered mothers petitioned the District Commissioner (DC).

    No!only health workers with low IQs do this,thus y you will never see a well trained medical doctor doing this crap of hurting patients,its mostly clinical officers and nurses,thus why it is very important to enroll intelligence students in health schools,most intelligent people have some wisdom,koma inu mwati ayi tizitengela quota system,this is the result mumatenga asatana enieni kuti azikapha anthu

  6. Ndikapsyere Zina says:

    The nurse would have forgiven the guardian for all wrong doing. Ifenso ma clients timawonjeza mwano, anene ichi ayi kuzolowera mwano wa kunyumba kenaka nkumati ma health care workers ndi woyipa. Aliyense pa ntchito yake.

    On the other hand chonde a nurse, forget about the guardian for the sake of the patient

    It is indeed pathetic to hear how some of these nurses behave. I lost my mum when a nurse at Chilomoni clinic refused to administer a drip on her. I lodged a complaint to DHO & Nurses board, but till today, not even an acknowledgement. This incident happened last year, 2014 July!! So these nurses need to be taught a lesson, otherwise we will keep on losing lives to curable diseases!

  14. It’s not first time for me to hear that story some ,Nkhotakota nurses do ill treat and kill new born baby upon having disagreement with the mother of the babies. why ? Govt has to do something

    A Kwataine anapanga comment nkhani yabodza osafufuza! Kkkkkkkk koma some pple are just mouth full of empty words! Kkkkkkkkk! Koma what is her profession? Koma reporter akutchulidwayi anapita ku school? There are personal interests I see to the nurse! Tifufuza bwino!

  17. my name is... says:

    I accept there was some negligence which should be discouraged. but how would a professional journalist get a story through the window?.. there are channels to be followed. By the way, did anyone complain to the hospital’s ombudsman? What did the hospital and advisory committee say? gentlemen……….

  18. Mangwanani says:

    But the fact is the pt received the medications, and the mtolankhani exaggerated the matter coz was shouted!
    The 51 figure of newborn babies deaths is not true, go to KK DHO to verify the two! I challenge kwa ofuna chilungano go or contact the relevant authorities at KK DHO! Osamangopanga comment zinthu zopanda umboni!
    Journalism is no there to punish your opposers! Tisamangopana makani ndi zinthu zoti sitizidziwa! How can a nurse work for over 48hrs continous? Ine nde ndizoseketsa! Nde amene amasinthana nawowo samaperekanso?

    1. Paris says:

      U are very right, ndizosathekadi nurse kugwira 48hrs continuos, ndi zabodza. Anthu ena amangokhala ndi negative mind ndi ma health workers

  19. mapwiya says:

    nurse ameneyu azafa imfa yowawa ndipo wandiphyesa mtima pantumbopako

  20. Health workers work in shifts,the journalist is ignorant.The child received the drug according to the presctiption contrary to all that noise from this bogus journalist.His arguments about NND are base less,most of the contribuying factors are community based,hence this journalist needs education to avoid misleading the nation.His story is not recent and not objective free.More over the nurse was innocently enforcin g infection prevention stancdards contrary to the bogus journalist saying it over personal disagreements with childs’ mother.It is proven the journalist wanted to tarnish the good image of NKk DHO hence the management has a right to sue this irresponsible and bogus journalist.Tikakumana ku court.Zikomo.

  21. Pena pake mukunama kuti mwanayo anatha two days without drugs . Amakhala yekha day and night those two days ?

    Kodi nurse anthu inu mumangofuna kumunyoza bwanji ? Simungayamike kuti nurses are doing great job in our hospitals ?

    Nurses have rights too . Patient akuyeneranso kulemekeza ma rights a nurse.

    Vuto ndilotinso ku nurses council kunachuluka anthu osaganiza bwino coz amangomva nkhani ku mbali imodzi Ya patient basi .

    1. Kanthu Ako! says:

      eating in a ward has nothing to do with a nurses rights. it is a patients right to eat when they are hungry.

      You call denying medicine to a child because she quarreled with his mother a good job? You must be out of your mind.

      Supposed the child had died? what would you be saying “Inali thawi yache”

      If you are a nurse you are an idiot, and have no business being a nurse.

      1. Paris says:

        A kanthu mkako ma nurse amasinthana pa duty, there is no way nurse angagwile yekha 48hrs continuos, nkhaniyi ndi yabodza

    The mtolankhani had no authority to talk to the nurse thus why was shouted! Sanawawuze a Nurse In Charge a wardyo bwa?
    Anapepmha chilolezo chopanga record kwa ndani? Amayiwo sanapite kwa In charge bwa?

  32. Happy Manda says:

    This story is some how not true. I am not a nurse but if a nurse is making a comment against his or her fellow nurse should think twice and not use an abusive language. Look at the matter seriously and ask these questions:

    1 Is the child dead? If not which medication was held and which drug cured the child? If not cured what followed next to failure of the child to be cured. What is a child’s problem because she comes to the hospital often for treatment and the mother is said not to be new at the hospital and always gets treatment. If the child is well then this story is vague and useless and uncalled for to be published on any media. The drug was skipped third time how was this drug administered with a short time 3 times. I want to be schooled here please.

    2 Professionally is this journalist competent enough to take a voice record? Why did he come with a recorder that a charitable work? Did she or he ask a permission from the authorities before taking any record? It is said in this story that he saw the confrontation through the window, professionally did he interviewed the nurse also as a tie breaker in the story? May I get professionalism story from the any association body of journalists.

    3 The woman, a mother to the child, comes to the hospital often and knows the rules that it is not to use the ward as a dinning room, was she not rude to upset on the nurse. I not careful we may misjudge the nurse and send the message that the hospital is a place for eating and enjoying and call our friends to use it as a restaurant.

    4 Getting the story well, what was all in the tape record, and what is the story of the nurse? I am only hearing that the nurse has denied the issue, how did she narrate it?

    5 Kwataine did she get the whole narration from the nurse, the journalist or nurses council offices? Sometimes we are good at commenting destroying the reputation of a certain cadre without proper and professionally manner and become unprofessional ourselves. Why are you not telling us the story of the nurse?

    6 Nurses Council is the body that looks at affairs of nurses why is it quite in the story? The story has no comment from the Ministry of Health also which can be concluded that it is fake or exaggerated.

    7 From July to December 51 children died meaning 8 children monthly 2 children a week and almost 1 child in 4 days and you are saying nurses are witches and wizards that is very wrong. Think of a ratio of 1 nurse to 60 patients in a day as per population of Malawi. How many patients has this nurse attended in her entire nursing service that we curse her for a child who is still living. Calculate, using the ratio and see if she has worked 100 days meaning 6000 patients do we need to harm the nurse with bad comments? Let us not do so please to those that care for our life.

    8 On death of children did we considered factors that lead to deaths such as delays to come to a hospital? luck of blood in hospitals due to denial of community to participate in blood donation? Ignorance at high level? Compliance to medication? so many factors. Of those who die how many are due to negligence? What about lack of drugs itself at government?

    9 Nurses work in harmony with the population professionally and ethically although sometimes it is good to protect your profession if someone tries to destroy it. I can see that this nurse was protecting the rights of other patients because all patients received medication but this mother in the story had special consideration and indeed had some issues from home or with the journalist, may be was sent to upset the nurse so that a tape could be made for business purposes. HOW WAS THE MANNER OF EATING THAT SHE COULD EVEN APOLOGISE TO THE NURSE THAT SHE WAS WRONG? I could see that she was dirty and even other patients were affected with her eating manner. It is said in the story that she even called friend to dine in the ward, SURE!!!

    10 The hospital spokes person listened to a recorded voice, can this not be translated that may be the voice was put in the mother’s mouth? Is it not good to get it face to face? What about the voice of eye witnesses apart from the journalist himself please?

    More and more Questions and Questions!!! ALL IN ALL AM NOT CLEAR IN THE MATTER or REMOVE THIS USELESS AND UNCENSORED STORY PLEASE!!!

  35. Mswachi says:

    Ma Nurse ambiri amatero! I have been in similar situation where the nurses attitude towards my son who was admitted at a hospital left a lot to be desired despite that the nurse knew I’m a Civil Servant working in the same Council. Ma nurse ena amaonjeza! I have met Nurses who are very passionate about their job! To those its Bravo; I cherish you service..

  37. Where was the father of the child,he suppose to be there and manhandle this useless wicked selfish coldhearted good for nothing nurse.ndanyasidwa kwambiri.

  38. man says:

    Where did he get that bi-annual report? Please verify with relevant pipo u calling urself bush journalist! Its not that reported by KK!its toally different! Shame!

  39. Such, unfortunately, is the breed of nurses the current Malawi and the world at large is producing; medical personel who care less about the origins and sanctity of human life. Through the nasty gymmicks/influence of the anti-human life West, they are instead agents of death; in the name of population control/safe motherhood/family planning/”safe abortion” programmes etc.

  40. man says:

    Anthu amene munaphunzira amene kwanu ndi ku KK, pliz bwelerani kwanu mudzakhale ma DC, DEM, DADO, DPD, DHO, OC ,and all other positions pliz!!!!!!!!

  41. man says:

    Koma ma journalist a pa KK, munaphunzira kuti ntchito? Munamva kwa ndani kuti nurse amagwira ntchito 48hrs day and night so that mwanayo asalandire mankhwala nthawi yonseyi? This just means he (journalist) is swimming in a pool of ignorance! Shame! Do a thorough investigation please!

  42. chimangenI says:

    Obanda,I think u r the first stupid,do you have a child or ur just saying this only to protect ur fellow?a life is lost because of foolishness like urs.whether its one skip or two or whatever it doest matter,she was dealing with one’s life(ves) this hole scene the nurse has a madder case to answer or in other way “negligence likely to case death” if u do know.its possible for a nurse to have a continuous shift because:1 it is a rural area and the hospital is known of shortage of nurses 2 the nurse might have a house around 3 being a retaliation move she can prolong her shift!!!think u bastard be for u say anything otherwise if u r also a nurse u better resign!!!!!!!!

    1. He he says:

      Ma comment enawa ndi ombwabwana

  43. Bandawe says:

    I agree with obanda. I am also a nurse but this scenario sounds very unpractical in our professional setup. Some truth is missing here. Why do people find pleasure in amplifying our simple mistakes and diminishing our achievements? This is very un Malawian.

  44. Makina says:

    My poor Malawi, for how long shall we tolerate this nonsense? A stiffer punishment to the nurse would be relevant here. Train more nurse to rid the system of these undesirable nurses. Ndi afiti awa.

  45. Think Tank says:

    Are you commenting on the above story or something else? What truths are you talking about? We know that no hospital has edequate nurses or medical personnel,but read the story above and get into the picture

  46. Kas says:

    Rumphi DHO again there z one woman, plz council come and do ur patrol plz

  47. obanda says:

    The story has very little truth in it and all these eight comments above are due to ignorance on how nurses work. was the nurse 48hrs on duty non stop? they had to be some handovers in between did the other nurse also followed the same decision. dear friends you don’t know what nurses pass through in the ward especially with guardians who feel they have a voice in the society. journalist you are forefront writing evils of nurses this world is round. if that the nurse did that on behalf of her sorry Malawians but first lets dig the root of the story

  48. TrueFact says:

    This nurse MUST be traced and disciplined appropriately. We don’t play around with people’s life, more so a child’s. For sure, the nurse is not befitting this profession. I hope Madame Kaliati (because this has to do with a child) and the Minister of Health and whatever, and the hospital administration, and human rights activists will follow up on this story and do the needful. If it was in somewhere this nurse could have been forced to resign, but in Malawi it’s different. Mr/Madame nurse, think about this: if it was your child being denied drugs how would you feel!

    I’m disappointed!

  49. Friends of MALAWI says:

    Dismiss her

  50. Zabwino says:

    Martha Kwataine u dont need the poor mother to lodge the complaint here take action as a mother yourself and as head of the org you represent. There are many nurses whose behaviour is unspeakable like this one and patients suffer silently because they dont have the capacity to be heard. You know very well the level of education that our mothers and sisters have attained here in Malawi and who can voice their concerns even to there immediate authorities within our communities. The journalist is proof enough of the inhuman and barbaric conduct this heartless nurse did. Yes nursing is a calling from God so is any other profession, but acting like a headless chicken that this nurse did is unacceptable, not after 50years of independence and we stil act like this. Your org works for both and in all fairness this nurse doesnt have a place in the country but to be given a RED CARD, PERIOD!!

  51. Malawianmom says:

    Kwataine,
    THIS WOMAN NEED NOT TO BE ON MALAWI REGISTRY OF NURSES. SHE NEED TO PARK AND GO NOW. SHE NEED TO BE FARMING. SHE WILL BE GREAT AT WEED CONTROL.

    We have heard enough of this kind of nurses in our nation.

    Please kwataine, clean them all out. 51 death is too much. We are loosing out our future generation, why? This is 2015.

  52. mbuyuni says:

    Nurses are not supposed to work like Alshababs or Boko haram, whose main aim is to kill. It is a privilege to be work as a nurse.The hospital is meant for the sick and the people privileged to look after them are supposed to regard them in that way.Such behaviors need strong interventions. The government is trying to improve services so that we all move towards modern medicine and move away from some unproven concoctions.

  53. TNM Boss says:

    Other pipo are being used with Satanists, she may now recall or now have come back to her senses. But people like her need to be prayed for. My advice is that after the warning find some people or the matron should be monitoring her very close, by asking patients who have been attended with her. May you change in Jesus Name

  54. NKhutukumve says:

    Para naona nurse!!! kodi kusakwatiwaku eti, nkwiyo ukuthela pa ma patient chifukwa chosowa amuna eti?!

    but how come she was skipped for 2days, i thot nurses work on shift, does it mean the whole ward nurses were involved or this particular nurse worked for 48hrs non stop- probe more pliz

  56. guta says:

  57. MSANA WA PETURO says:

    Satana weniweni. Mulungu adzakulanga.

  58. Angozo says:

    The nurse must be fired at once.

  59. THIS SHOULD NOT SOUND AS IF IT IS AN ISOLATED CASE GOOD MALAWIANS. THERE IS HORROR TAKING PLACE IN MANY HOSPITALS AND CLINICS.

    IT IS THE MALAWI NURSES AND MIDWIFELY COUNCIL THAT NEEDS TO TAKE BIGGER BLAME FOR ITS APPARENT LAISSEZ FAIRE APPROACH TO ISSUES OF THIS NATURE.

    IT IS AWARE THAT SOME NURSES ARE DIRTY AND EVIL IN ATTITUDES ALL OVER BUT IT CANNOT ENHANCE ITS MONITORING AND SUPERVISORY ROLES AT ALL.

    SHAME!

  62. chaiwone wawo says:

    Do issues of a child’s medical attention really have to be swept under the carpet simply because the nurse was a first offender? Can this not be equated to attempted murder? Do we really want this to go unpunished? Why become a nurse if you are so heartless?

  63. Greencardless Malawian says:

    While im not surprised with the behaviour of this government hospital employee im still extremely angered at her actions. But this is thebtendancy of nurses and doctors who work in government hospitals…they are used to seeing people die and they become killers themselves through negligenceband sometimes just lack of compassion. No matter how sick i may get, id never go to a gvt clinic or hospital unless its my only choice. My nephew died at the hands of those killers at KCH some years ago and they managed to conceal all evidence to protect their coleague who had made a foolish mistake but Praise God He fought our battle. My prayer is that this particular nurse gets punishment equal to her evil deed to an innocent soul so she can repent and never repeat such an act

  64. Mwaona says:

    This is just a tip of the iceburg. There are miriads of unreported cases like those, and the unfortunate part is that they happen to people who do not know where to report to when such incidences occur (usually who do not know their rights). Government lets be serious with peoples lives (health). Chikhalidwe ichi chachuluka kwambiri and zikuonetsa kuti amene ali responsible kupanga handle ma issues ngati amenewa amangozipondeleza osatenganso action pa munthuyo beacause either they know one another or chifukwa cha ndalama (bribes)

    Was the nurse working 24/7? Does this mean everyone on duty was instructed by the ‘evil’ nurse not to give medicine to the little boy or she is the only one who gives medicine? Just curious

Shame and devilish

  73. collina says:

    she is so cruel & mean,how could she do such a thing?

  74. Chinthumwananga says:

    Looks like female nurses have some serious attitude problems.

    Can Government encourage training of more male nurses who traditionally have been preferred by womenfolk in hospitals. I am pretty sure this would reduce recurrence of such petty disagreements.

    This lady is a witch and she is not supposed to be a Nurse at any hospital in Malawi.The Malawi Nurses and Midwifery Council should act now even without official complaint from the lady.Munthu oyipa mtima ngati uyu nakhalanso mzimayi eeeee wandiwopsa zedi ndipo mwamuna wake aziwiretu kuti ali pampeni,kungosiyana maganizo pang’ono azamupha kutulo.
