Authorities of the Bamenda Regional hospital have handed over awards to meritorious staff of the hospital for 2017. The award ceremony that took place on Thursday December 14, 2017 chaired by North West Regional Governor Adolph Lele L’Afrique gave an opportunity for the hospital Director Dr Kingue Thompson Njie to appreciate the entire staff of the hospital for answering present at work particularly during the peak moments of the ongoing crisis.
According to the Director the 2017 end of year award ceremony like others “is to reward diligent and hardworking staff, who has qualified to serve as models for others at the Regional Hospital Bamenda.” Staff motivation Dr Kingue explained “is a matter of government policy and a strong recommendation from the Honourable Minister of Public Health H.E Andre Mama Fouda.”
The winners according to the Chaplain of the Hospital Rev Pastor Azia Samual who led the jury, the award winners were selected from the various departments and activities based on punctuality, sense of duty, competence, honesty appearance, work organization amongst others.
The awardees received praises for being outstanding as the hospital carried out over 65 000 consultations, 13000 admissions, close to 70 000 hospitalizations with a bed occupancy rate  of 80% and 795 deaths.
Responding to what went wrong with regards the number of deaths, the Director said “The very first reason we are able to identify is that many sick people come late to the hospital –at such point when the doctors and nurses are unable to do anything again.” While blaming this on the ignorance “of the tremendous treatment opportunities the government has put at the disposal of all Cameroonians… all public hospitals including the Regional Hospital Bamenda,” Dr Kingue highlighted the free treatment for children below five years suffering from uncomplicated malaria, free distribution of mosquitoes nets to pregnant mothers, the hemodialysis center currently attending to 75 patients with recently replaced eight generators and a new osmosis machine, the imagery center and settlement of hospital bills for all victims of the social unrest.
