A Nigerian registered nurse and midwife, Kendra, has shared her experience with a Chief Nursing Officer on her first day in a hospital ward.
Taking to the microblogging platform, she narrated that she was ordered to iron a scrub by the CNO.
According to her, the request was extremely confusing as it was outside her job description but the CNO did not seem to care.
“Today I was posted to a new ward. I came in, changed my clothes and sat down. A nurse came in and I greeted her. The next thing she told me “come and iron my scrubs” I was confused and she really asked me why I was shocked. Why should I iron your scrubs? Nah Nigeria is crazy.
And she was like I am the CNO. And so fucking what? Is it not the same license we have? Where was it written in my resumption letter that I am here to iron a CNO scrubs? It’s paining me that I ironed because I didn’t just want to cause wahala this new week,”
She really opened that her mouth to tell me that” why are you confused?, if you see the things as I need when I was a new nurse”. And in my mind I am like, how is that my business? People really need to do better Fr. The first time you are seeing me and you are telling me to iron her scrubs for her. God. Nigerians should learn how to treat their subordinate for real.”
