Nurse Who Was Insulted By Ashanti Region NSS Boss Removed Over “Mental Safety” Issues

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate story that the association for all registered nurses and midwives in Ghana has disclosed that the nurse who was insulted by a doctor's father in a viral audio has been removed from the hospital where the incident occurred.

The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) said the young female nurse has been transferred from the Manhyia District Hospital to ensure her mental safety following the incident.

The nurse was verbally abused by the father of the doctor, the house master at the health facility in the Ashanti Region, for not being polite in addressing his daughter.

Reports say Mr Opoku-Mensah lashed out at the nurse because he did not like the way the nurse spoke to his daughter during a phone conversation.

Opoku-Mensah subsequently apologised for his actions in a short statement posted on social media.
