Poor Maternal Health Care Blamed On Medics Negligence
The District Health officer Kyankwanzi district, Dr. Serebe John Bosco attributes the poor health services to the pregnant mothers to the attitude by the health workers, midwives in particular.
Serene notes that though there challenges that limit the good service delivery to the mothers, the mid wives too need to check the care they give the women who go to hospitals in need for delivery services.
He says though most of these midwives have skills, they have continued to act desperately when attending to mothers hence in the process, some lose their lives.
In her response, Mary Adong, a mid-wife with Mulago hospital the Kawempe branch laments the big workload these have that at times see them lose the composure in the face of the patients hence called upon government to recruit reasonable number of mid wives to help in the noble cause of saving lives of mothers.
