“Dear doctors, be kinder” Actress Biodun Stephen sends a PSA to Nigerian hospitals who are cold to their patients
Media personality Biodun Stephen has issued out a quick PSA to hospitals and doctors.
She preached on the importance of doctors becoming kinder to their patients, as she revealed the coldness that most Nigerian doctors exhibit.
In her words, she says,
“Dear doctors, I know this country does not give you the credit you deserve, but the patients need your warmth in consulting with them. You do not need to be friendly, though. I believe it’s a plus. But aloofness and coldness does not come with the medical practice. Do better. Be kinder.”
She further told hospitals in Nigeria that most patients do not like coming to them, the same way they don’t like seeing patients.
“ Dear hospital, the feeling is mutual. I do not like coming to you either, but sometimes life forces us to be in your presence. When I do come to you, tell your people not to treat me like a livestock. You are not doing me a favor. It is a paid service. Thank you.”
Now recall that back in October of 2023, Biodun Stephen had recounted how her mother was murdered by a drunk driver.
The award-winning film director revealed on Twitter that the driver had drove that she had driven past where her mother was killed, and much has changed.
While she admitted still feeling hurt, she expressed how grateful she was for the journey so far, since it happened about 23 years ago.
In 2023, Biodun Stephen had also taken to social media to share her ordeal with area boys who took advantage of her weakness to make money for themselves. She revealed that her bus had broken down on the road, and she had had to spend a total of 22,000 Naira on area boys before they could help her.
