160 new nurses start work


Around 160 nurses, recruited on directions of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in connection with looking after dengue patients, took charge of their duties at Services Hospital on Monday. Around 223 nurses were recruited for Services Hospital. Services Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Muhammad Javed informed the newly-recruited nurses about their special responsibilities and purpose of their induction in the hospital. Javed stressed upon nurses to perform their duties with a spirit of dedication and passion to serve ailing humanity. He said that nurses were the real face of any hospital and their role for recovery of patients was very vital. Javed said that the role of nurses for treatment of dengue patients got more importance, as they not only looked after them but also conveyed precautionary measures against dengue.
Javed also directed Nursing Superintendent Malika Shaheen to watch and monitor the performance of newly-conducted nurses. She was also directed to observe discipline in a strict manner. He asked the nursing superintendent to verify the educational documents and nursing diplomas of the new comers immediately and said that action would be taken against those nurses whose documents would prove bogus.
