A STATESMAN has urged health workers to treat patients well despite a lack of equipment and a shortage of manpower in clinics or hospitals.
Former Morobe administrator Benson Nablu said good attitudes attracted and kept people while bad attitudes chased people away.
“People don’t just need clinical help, but psychological help as well,” he said.
“You can be busy due to the shortage of staff, but it does not stop you from smiling to a patient.”
Nablu said services must be provided fairly to everyone despite their status in the community.
“Whether they are a chairman, minister, or doctor, services must be fair to everyone,” he said.
Nablu, a former Angau Memorial Provincial Hospital chairman, said health workers must not smoke and chew during work.
He acknowledged the health workers for faithfully serving the people despite difficult circumstances in their line of work.
