August 1st, 2017 – 2 Ghanaian Nurses Caught Using Facebook Live On Duty Sacked
Two Ghanaian nurses identified only as Tracy Ewurama Marcel and Ramatu have lost their jobs for ignoring patients to go live on Facebook while at work.
The viral video of nurses on Facebook live was shared by Ghanaian news publication, Adom FM, on their Facebook page.
Reacting to the viral video, the management of the Royal MMR Hospital, where the two nurses worked, said they were shocked and appalled by the fact the two nurses “choose to do Facebook Live while at work and responded to comments at the expense of patients waiting to seek health care”
A doctor with the hospital, Dr. Mohammed Donkor, however, confirmed to Adom News that the two had been fired by the management of the hospital as their conduct was in breach of company regulations.
Trudy and Ramatu were reportedly employed as health assistants at the health facility and had no knowledge that their conduct was against hospital rules.
