Every single one has one way or the other visited the emergency clinic before. Contingent upon your health condition, you’re obligated of visiting a hospital for medication. But, have you constantly been treated well by some of these health workers? Indeed, this is one of the serious issues affecting the growth of numerous health centres around the world, especially in most parts of Africa.
Sadly, some health facilities have an odd mindset towards patients, as if they are doing the patient a favour, subsequently put on their most exceedingly terrible conduct of ‘clothing’.
Numerous people have complained about the poor services offered by medical attendants, with some of them showing impudence and negligence. These horrendous frames of mind towards patients are progressively going on without risk of punishment, yet nobody appears to care.
Indeed, not all health centres can be connected to the abovementioned, however a large group of them have been found wanting regarding this matter. On specific events, health workers are seen hectically squirming and flipping their mobile phones exactly when their services are required most.
In unusual cases, you bump into some health workers eating and having a fabulous time just when there is an emergency on hand. And when they are approached for some assistance to a patient, they tell you in the face:
“hang on and if you think it’s a problem for you, visit another emergency clinic”.
It’s awful but this is what is happening in most hospitals. This calls for answers if for sure these health laborers do qualify or are very much prepared to fulfill the human asset guidelines of a hospital. Most public hospitals are normally the ones with those horrendous mentalities towards patients.
Perhaps, the issue is the doctor-to-nurse ratio to patients, which is the reason patients are seriously treated that way. In many parts of the world, health attendants and patient proportion is way over the doctors or nurses.
Consequently, the proportion is around 80-20. Thus, services will in general be poor. On this issue, other health workers also complain that besides the lack of resources to coordinate the patient proportion, some of the patients don’t comply with the principles and guidelines of the emergency clinics. Considerably, in the wake of making them mindful of it, they disregard those warnings.
On this equivalent issue, some experts don’t agree with what the health workers are stating. They additionally have an assertion that, medical problems are entirely different from other institutions since it’s about the life of individuals. Irrespective of the disposition of a patient, care should initially be given before anything else.
After all, the services are not for free. There have been cases where patients have lost their lives, have been severed, have lost their newly born babies, have been wrongly diagnosed, have been given wrong prescription and have been left to experience pains all because they owe an insignificant parity of cash.
Meanwhile, the private medical clinics are fairly extraordinary. Regardless of all conditions, the greater part of them treat their patients with most extreme regard. Consequently, the private health clinics do everything they can to save patients from all health problems brought before them.
In some cases, some doctors of these private clinics go the extent of even paying the bills of many patients if need be. The private clinics are progressively concerned about the lives of the individuals so they put in more efforts and resources to save patients.
Perhaps, the vast majority don’t patronize the services of the private ones due to the high cost involved, but their services are usually excellent. Saying this doesn’t imply that the public medical clinics don’t help in saving patients from numerous problems but most of them increasingly need massive training on human relations regardless of anything.
Consequently, if a medical doctor vent his/her spleen on a patient for no evident explanation, then that surmounts to unprofessionalism. Truth be told, some doctors and their surbodinates are so impolite to their patients for reasons known to themselves. However, others are also exceptionally ‘clean’ and always earn extraordinary love from their patients.
It’s time health workers cease from being mean to patients with no exceptional explanation. During ‘hard’ times, the patient becomes defenseless and powerless, therefore adding salt to their sore is way too much for them.
And to the patients, command respect and behave yourselves whenever you visit the hospital. But, in the event that you request it with abnormal demeanor, you will be given same by the medical caretakers. Try not to go instructing medical attendants to do what they’re have no commitment to do.
In conclusion, medical practitioners ought to similarly be pleasant with patients Irrespective of any circumstance or absence of resources. The little resources hospitals have, ought to be used well to help patients. Without patients, there wouldn’t be the presence of emergency clinics, the same applies to the medical attendants. Subsequently the two gatherings should regard each other for one objective – Good Health!
