RIDGE HOSPITAL SUSPENDS TWO STAFF FOR ADMINISTRATIVE MALPRACTICE

The Greater Accra Regional Hospital, Ridge has suspended two of its staff for engaging in administrative malpractices which has the tendencies of tarnishing the image of the hospital.

These officers were caught by BBC investigative team “Africa Eye” selling Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) belonging to a private individual within the premises of the Hospital.

Even though these items do not belong to the hospital and do not also constitute the hospital’s COVID-19 stock, either donated or procured, their action constitutes a breach of the Ghana Health Service Code of Conduct.

As a hospital, we do not encourage these behaviours since it may adversely affect their output and also be misconstrued by the public as items of the facility. The suspended officers are; Thomas Osei, Medicine Counter Assistant and Divine Kumordzi of the Sewing Unit of the Hospital. Thomas Osei is serving a two-week suspension without salary for the inappropriate and unauthorized sale of PPEs on the hospital premises.

Whilst, Mr Divine Kumordzi would refund all monies realized with regards to the unauthorized and inappropriate sale of face masks on the hospital premises. He is also serving a two weeks suspension without salary.

Management stopped the practice immediately it came to its attention and ordered auditing of the stock of PPEs before arriving at its conclusion.

The prescribed sanction is in line with the provisions of the Ghana health service Code of Conducts and Disciplinary Procedures.

We want to use this opportunity to assure our stakeholders that all donations and items procured which are routed through the Hospital’s Main Stores managed by a Senior Supply Manager and Head of Stores and supervised by Head of Administration are all intact.

Management would like to use this medium to send a strong warning to staff who will violate rules and regulations governing the hospital.

Let’s all abide by the rules of engagement for the benefit of the patient and the country as a whole.

Thank you.

EC Boss Reveals How Some Names Got Omitted From The Voters’ Register

Published

on


Electoral Commission chair, Mrs Jean Mensah has explained how some names were omitted from the current voters register.

Addressing the press Monday, September 28, 2020, Mrs Jean Mensah said a process to export the information of registered voters onto secured storage is to blame for the missing names in the register.

“Registration of voters is done using Biometric Registration Devices at the Polling Stations. Thereafter, the data is then transmitted to the data centre where it undergoes the process of de-duplication by the Automatic Biometric Identification System (ABIS).

“In other words, the data is exported for secure storage and further analysis. The provisional register is then produced. In a few instances, the process of exportation of data from the USB sticks to the central server was faulty leading to shortfalls of data in some areas

“It is important to highlight that although the registration process is IT-driven, there is still a significant amount of human involvement that may result in errors in every step of the process from registration to exhibition. In short, due to unintentional human and administrative errors, the process of exportation of data from the BVD kits to the USB sticks and then to the Central Database was in a few instances faulty leading to shortfalls in some areas. In a nutshell, our technology performed optimally as expected, however, in some areas, the human element of ours fell short leading to some of the gaps in the data we experienced,” she explained

Campaign For Us Or Be Expelled – John Boadu Warns Losing NPP Aspirants Wanting To Go Independent

Published

on


The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has said that the party will not tolerate independent candidates in this year’s elections.

The party will revoke the membership of such candidates who decide to go against the party rules to go solo in the 2020 general elections according to him.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Show, Mr. Boadu added that the party will also disown them should they even make it to Parliament.

He further appealed to disgruntled candidates to resort to the party’s constitution and other methods akin to the party’s constitution than to go independent which does not help in the development of a party that is seeking re-election.
