I have just learnt the hard way that what people say about our attitudes and behaviour at state hospitals is true.
I am a nurse and I have been mistreated and neglected by people I work with. They totally ignored my condition after I was diagnosed with corneal ulcer. Luckily I have medical aid and was rushed to a private doctor who helped me promptly. The question is, what about those who canít afford private medical services? Iím still shocked and scared. I am in severe pain but afraid of even going to the hospital in Katima. Iíll only set my foot there for work when I heal, God willing.
I donít think I will continue to be a nurse. I am so disappointed. I loved this work. If Iím hired by a private hospital then Iíll continue. Please letís change.
