Ondo Warns Private Hospitals

The Ondo State Government, has warned private hospitals in the state to stop training nurses and midwives, as they had no legal right to do so.

Dr Taiye Oni, the Permanent Secretary, Ondo State Ministry of Health, gave this warning while monitoring the entrance examination into the Ondo State School of Nursing and Midwifery for the 2017/2018 session in Akure.

Oni noted that such training by the private hospitals was contributing to some sharp practices by some actors in the state health sector.

He said the State Government would not allow the trend to continue but nip it in the bud so as to ensure quality health service delivery in line with the agenda of the present administration.

The Permanent Secretary said that with the new policy of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, most Schools of Nursing and Midwifery would now award Higher National Diploma and degree certificates.

He disclosed that the state School of Nursing and Midwifery would soon be upgraded to a degree awarding institution.
