From Maduabuchi Nmeribeh, Kano
The Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has launched a 100-bed female Isolation Centre in the state.
This is part of efforts to create conducive environment for quick recovery of patients.
Speaking while inspecting the Daula Female Isolation Centre in Nassarawa Local Government Area of the state, the governor expressed delight that, “everything is ready here. All staff who supposed to work here have already been posted.
“We don’t want to hear any complaints from any patient here please. You need to understand the psychology of your patients. Provide them with the necessary items they may seek.
“As you may be aware that, there are complaints from some Isolation Centres in some states, it is therefore absolutely necessary to find solution to such agitations.”
Ganduje further advised the health workers to, “contact your patients from time to time and tell them the situation they are at the moment.
“Tell them what is expected of them and what they should expect. I think that can help in forming a good patient-health worker relationship.”
He added that, “as a place where patients are idle, with feeling of inconveniences because they are not with their families and/or parents, they need to be engaged so that they can have hope. That it is just a matter of time that they would be discharged.
“They should be aware of the procedures.”
Ganduje, however, assured that, “we assure our public that we are really prepared to bring this pandemic down by the Special Will of Allah. And I believe we will soon start observing that, especially when we are having many negative cases.”
The Daula Female Isolation Centre is 100-bed capacity facility, designed for mild cases.
