r Alex Poku Mensah, the Ashanti Regional Director for the National Service Secretariat, was caught on audio verbally harassing a nurse at the Manhyia Government Hospital in the Ashanti Region simply because she was standing up for her patients.
This incident happened when a house officer who was supposed to be on duty wasn’t at their post. In an effort to assist a sick client, the nurse requested the house officer to respond to the client’s demands with some prescribed drugs, which infuriated the house officer.
The regional director of the National Service Secretariat of the Ashanti Region and the father of the house officer, Alex Owusu Mensah, went to the hospital and began verbally harassing the nurse, calling her all kinds of names.
The nurse was insulted, called stupid, and other derogatory terms were used by the man in the recording, along with another foul language.
The assault of their colleague as a result of her standing up for her patient has caused outrage among nurses across the nation. The GRNMA, the mother association of nurses, has been contacted by nurses to take immediate action.
