After a protracted strike by nurses in the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi Araba which resulted to the discharge of all patients in the tertiary hospital, the nurses on Monday announced the suspension of the strike.
To this end, full services would be resumed at the hospital from Tuesday, raising the hope that patients who had abandoned the facility since June would begin to access care again from the hospital.
The strike, which led to all patients deserting the tertiary hospital, began since June 10.
Vice President of the Nigerian Association of Nigerian Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), LUTH Branch, Stephen Olutola, said the strike was suspended after a meeting between the leadership of the nurses and the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) during which the ministry pledged to address the demands of the nurses.
