High work load

No wonder it is impossible to satisfy the women's need for quality care which they deserve.Delivering over 12,000 deliveries annually is the true story of Bwaila hospital. Being a public hospital, obstetric complications e.g ruptured uterus , postpartum haemorrhage, and obstructed labour are the talk of every day life.I salute the midwives , clinical officers and doctors for the wonderful job that they do depite all the challenges e.g, shortage of staff and equipment. They usually stretch themselves to deliver what they can.A midwife usually delivers more than 7 babies or more per shift but she also has to take care of other women with different problems.No wonder the midwives are so exhausted , their morale is down and sometimes loose their temper.Talking of night duty , Herregud! 4.30pm-7.30am, how can such a midwife deliver quality care?? It is just too much for the midwives!!!the work load is too much.
