- Last week a video surfaced of the two nurses going live on Facebook while on duty at their place of work
- The management of the hospital has fired them for breach of hospital regulations
- One nurse has come out out to apologize to the public for their conduct
The two junior nurses that were fired from their jobs for uploading a Facebook Live video during their work hours are asking the management of the hospital and the general public to forgive them.
Trudy Ewurama Marcel and her colleague whose name is only given as Ramatu, went viral with a video of them at their work station.
The pair who were junior nurses at the Royal MMR Hospital in Dansoman, were sacked after the video reached the management of the hospital through the post on Adom FM’s Facebook page.
Speaking on NEAT FM on Monday, Trudy Marcel said: “We admit it was a mistake but it was after work and we decided to stay for a while and we did the Facebook live but I suspect someone is behind this because the video was shot in April.”
She said it was odd that a video which was uploaded in April somehow found its way to a news site to become popular enough to get her suspended from work.
Addressing the issue, the director of the Royal MMR Hospital, Dr. Mohammed Donkor disclosed that the pair have had their employment terminated by the hospital for their misconduct.
Dr. Donkor said the pair has tarnished the image of the hospital, and would not be rehired even if investigations cleared their name.
The nurse Trudy had earlier given indication that the news of her video and the subsequent decision by the hospital’s management did not concern her as much.
She took to her Facebook wall to say: “A Video Made Around April After Work, Surprisingly Gets Notice Just Yesterday! Even If I Lose Everything, I Still Have Life”
