Aggrieved nurses at the Ankaful Psychiatric hospital have expressed disappointment in the conduct of the Director of the facility, Dr. Eugene Dordoye for giving out the hospital vehicle to his wife to be supplying bread to her costumers, which is her private business.
According to them, they have consistently complained about this among other teething challenges to authorities but nothing seems to have been done about the matter further emboldening him to take decisions which are not in the interest of the facility.
The nurses further alleged that the hospital’s only generator which is supposed to be used in the night in case lights are off, is used in the day time for reasons best known to Dr. Eugene Dordoye who is allegedly running the place like an extension of his home.
As a result, they want him removed from the facility as his continuous stay is inimical to its development considering the number of wrong decisions he has taken and therefore appealed to the Minister of Health, Mr. Kwaku Manu Agyemang to as matter of urgency to expedite action.
The nurses who hit the streets in protest of his continuous stay in office on Wednesday, threatened to lay off their tools if their demands are not met by November 17, 2017.
Addressing the media shortly after the demonstration, the Public Relation Officer of the group, Mr. Emmanuel Kojo Ofori expressed sadness that nurses who take care of people with mental and psychological problems do not even have sound mind to work and take care of their patients and clients.
According to him, the staff of the institution especially the nurses are going through hell in the hands of the hospital director; disclosing that several petitions have been sent to Minister of health and Mental Health Authority regarding the conduct of Dr. Dordoye
The Chairman of the group, Mr. Daniel Danso Sarpong who decried the behaviour of Dr. Dordoye said he has refused to allow the Psychiatric Nurses Group to function in the hospital when the same group in other psychiatric hospitals is functioning peacefully and helping their facilities to develop.
According to the PRO, the director embarrasses and uses derogatory remarks on staff especially nurses.
