Create nursing posts

Dear Editor,
“The anguish of the state’s nurses” has indeed shown the true condition of the state’s nurses. The nurse patient ratio has not been maintained in even a single hospital in the state.
The govt have not heard the pleads of the nurses.
Supporting in establishment of APNC (Arunachal Pradesh Nursing Council) was only the appreciable initiatives by the govt. Other than that, there has been none.
If we go to any hospital, you will find more contractual nursing officers than regular ones. These are those Nursing officers, who are not getting their salary regularly and tired of waiting for regularization.
If we see the INC norms every teaching hospital should have nursing superintendent, deputy nursing superintendent and ward incharge, whereas these figures are not there in affiliated hospital attached to the nursing school.
We the nurses are appealing to the govt since 2015, but there is no affect.
The everyday tiff between the nurses and patients are mostly due to the inadequate number of health care providers especially nurses. Every year the govt. is recruiting nurses on contractual basis.
At least they can create the exact number regular posts as that of contractual. We have high hope from the new cabinet of the state, that they will understand that nursing is a core in health care facilities.
Our only appeal to the present govt is that kindly create regular nursing officer posts as soon as possible for the benefits of the community, society and the state.
