KAMPALA – Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng has on Saturday, May 2, commended the nusre who wheeled a patient to hospital for her selflessness.
On April 9, 2020, Doris Oku’dinia, an enrolled nurse at Ediofe Health Centre III wheeled a patient on a wheel chair for over 2kms, after an ambulance they had requested for failed to show up.
This was after President Museveni had announced a new set of measures like ban on public transport as mitigation measures to contain spread of Coronavirus in Uganda.
Aceng said Okudunia lived to the expectations by taking a patient in a wheelchair for 3kms.
“You will get an award for being an exemplary health worker, ” she said.
Acenge further commended all health workers for the work they’re doing in the health sector.
“To all our health workers, you are beyond amazing. Without you, there is no life or health. I salute and respect you everyday,” she said.
