Demanding, unethical practices

The dept of health just like all other government institutes have fancy protocols in place but fail to adhere to them.A lot of new staff have qualification but have to be trained and retrained continuously it really becomes a nightmare to managers.Excessive nepotism in the interview process .CEO rely on political power rather than work capability

Pros

Nothing for free

Cons

Qualification but no experience most employees

Unprofessional and descrimination

Department of Health use community health workers but not paying them enough money. Community health workers are like toys to the department, they are not getting enough money, no benefits, we are not even allowed to have a study leave, and always renew one year contract from 2019....the department of Health is not fair for community health workers 💔💔💔😭

Pros

Free uniforms to others

Cons

Little stipend

Competency assessments

Interviews should include both theory and practice that linked to the position that you are being interviewed for so as to identify gaps earlier in line with PDP's.

There is a lot to learn as we nurse different patients with different problems

I begin my day by handover, count babies, and the oxygen therapy they are on, mark staff register and see all the rooms are covered. Start with my medication round, order all the necessary medications from pharmacy. Attend doctors rounds and do orders. Help the EN with admission, start babies on iv fluids, and administer prescribed medication. Help new mothers with expressionng milk.
