Dear Doctors, Be Kinder – Actress Biodun Stephen Tells Doctors Cold to Their Patients
Nigerian director and filmaker, Biodun Stephen has sent a message to hospitals and doctors in the country.
She begged them to be considerate and treat their patients better.
Her SOS call came following poor reviews by Nigerians concerning government and private hospitals, doctors and nurses.
In her words:
“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 added that most patients do not like coming to hospitals in Nigeria, the same way hospitals 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.”
