Junior Doctors’ Association, Ghana has jumped to the defence of the Manhyia District Hospital doctor, whose dad allegedly insulted a nurse at the facility.
The junior doctors maintain that the doctor did nothing wrong.
“While we do not condone the actions of the father, it is imperative to set the records straight on the falsehood being peddled to bring the professional competence of the doctor into disrepute,” a statement issued on Tuesday said.
The statement which was jointly signed by the President of the Junior Doctors’ Association, Ghana Dr Louisa A. Nkrumah and Secretary Dr Norbert Kipo, said the information put out there about the doctor and her alleged wrong prescription “is untrue, according to the hospital management and records available”.
“We, therefore, entreat all media houses to pull down their broadcast concerning the alleged wrong prescription of medication and entreat the general public to disregard such allegations against the doctor.”
“We will continue to work as a team to provide quality healthcare to our cherished clients and the people of Ghana at large”.
