Nigerian nurses/ nursing students need serious “reformation” especially midwifery students.
FOREIGN NURSES VS NIGERIAN NURSES: If you witness where a woman is giving birth abroad, even as a man you will feel like getting pregnant. Abroad, for only one woman in labour, you will see an Obstetrician, A Gynecologist, A General Surgeon, A Specialist Surgeon, An Anesthetist, A Registered Nurse /Midwife/ plus Social Welfare Officer and so on–and they will pamper the woman in labour… that is why it is called “DELIVERY ROOM” over there”.
But in Nigeria it is called “LABOUR ROOM” and if you see what women pass through, hmmm!! You will agree with me that it should also be called “Confession and Trial Room”; Nigerian nurses make pregnancy look like a criminal offence. And the worse thing is that they are everywhere both in private and government hospitals. For Instance, when a woman who is in labour is brought to the hospital, they will throw her into the labour room and lock her up like a criminal awaiting for trial and they will go to the reception room and be gossiping or go into the Dr’s office and be chatting until the woman will start bleating like goat “kpaa-kpaa-kpaa.” And when the nurse(s) enters the labour room to meet her, is not help her but to insult her: “You will be hearing things like “Na me do you?” “Even the man wey do u no dey here!” “Madam push oo!” “Abeg open your legs joor!” “Abi you wan kill your pikin?” “You better push now or I go leave you here oo!”
