COVID-19: Ganduje inaugurates female-only isolation centre
Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has inaugurated a female-only Daula Isolation Centre in Kano State.
He said the 100-bed capacity facility at Nassarawa local government is ready for operation.
This was just as he disclosed that “everything is ready here. All staff who are supposed to work here have already been posted.”
He made the observation during the inspection of the facility, adding that: “We don’t want to hear any complaints from any patient here, please. You need to understand the psychology of your patients. Provide them with the necessary items they may seek.”
A statement signed and issued by Comrade Abba Anwar, Chief Press Secretary to the governor said the female-only Daula isolation centre is for mild and moderate cases.
Ganduje said: “As you may be aware that, there are complaints from some isolation centres in some states, it is therefore absolutely necessary to find a solution to such agitations.
“Contact your patients from time to time and tell them the situation they are at the moment. Tell them what is expected of them and what they should expect. I think that can help in forming a good patient-health worker relationship.”
While noting that patients in isolation are mostly idle with the feeling of inconveniences because they are not with their families and/or parents, he urged the healthcare workers to always engage the patients.
“They need to be engaged so that they can have hope. That it is just a matter of time that they would be discharged.
“They should be aware of the procedures. That if they test negative for the first time, then they should know that there is hope. And when they test negative for the second time, then they are due for discharge,” he urged.
