Medical workers at LUTH tasked on team work
In a bid to ensure quality health care delivery and reduce mortality rate, healthcare providers have been urged to embrace team work. This is owing to the fact that the lives of the patient is of utmost importance.
Chief Executive Officer, Total Health Trust Limited, Dr. Ladi Awosika said this during the third Joint Graduation Ceremony and Presentation of Prizes of the institution, where over 300 students from eight schools in the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) were awarded Diploma certificates and prizes given to outstanding students.
These schools included School of Health Information Management, School of Medical Laboratory Science, School of Medical and Psychiatry Social Work, School of Nursing, School of Midwifery, School of Post Basic Nursing, School of Basic Dental Nursing and Community Health Officers Training Programme.
Awosika admitted that healthcare service delivery has deteriorated due to the dichotomy and politics that has permeated the profession.
“Every medical practitioner has a role to play in healthcare. There is need to work with that mindset in order to achieve upmost results in service delivery. More so, every second counts and any laxity in the care of the patient may result to death or worsen the situation,” he added.
Addressing the grandaunts, Guest speaker, Group Medical Director of Exxon Mobile, Dr. Bello Mohammed encouraged them to be dedicated to work by rendering selfless services.
Bello, added that empathy in the profession becomes necessary because patients care more about the level of professionalism.
He added that they find specialisations in different fields to enable them compete with their counterparts across the globe as well as contribute to the provision of quality health care delivery in the country.
“Graduation is not self sufficient unless you keep learning, you can’t make way to improve daily,” he said.
Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee, Dr. Olufemi Fasanmade, accounted for the achievements of the various schools in the institution, saying the management has continued to ensure excellence in training.
