For about a year now, nurses in Bujan CHPS Compound are unable to attend to patients at night, no matter the condition of clients due to the community’s failure to provide security for the facility. This also was reported during the 2017 annual health review of the Ghana Health Service by the in charge of Nabugubelle Sub-District Mr. Robert Juah.
Nevertheless, it was a decision taken by the authorities to protect nurses during the night after the community could no longer pay a security person to continue protecting life and property in the facility. In a follow up by RadfordFM News today, the situation is said to be still the same Mr. Robert confirms and laments it is a worry to health care delivery even though the decision taken by the Ghana Health service is to safeguard nurses against threats.
Meanwhile, if anyone feels sick in Bujan at night they have to travel to Nabugubelle if their condition is either minor or major. A concept which accompanies the CHPS policy says each beneficiary community must provide security for the facility, but the community failed to do so he explained.
The Assembly Member of the area Samuel Grumo in an interview with RadfordFM News on the issue revealed that each section of the community was supposed to contribute Ghc50 to pay the security, but some of the sections in the community failed and this resulted in the inability to keep the security. He said paying off the security and recruiting another person is a challenge. He nevertheless said that several meetings have been held to resolve the situation even though it’s not yielding any faster results.
