Occupational Hazards: Nursing Practice

Occupational Hazards Associated With Nursing Practice at the Federal Teaching Hospital

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of Study

In recent years, it has become apparent that health care workers are exposed to a variety of occupational hazards that can result in serious acute and long-term ill health. In nursing, the situation is complicated because of high demand on quality nursing care ( Kom, 2007). However, many hospitals are built and managed without due concern for the health of the workers, often because of lack of experience in the area of occupational health and lack of government involvement in assessing hospitals and stipulating laws to guide opening of hospitals.

Nurses’ Shortage On Patient’s Care

“Living In The World Of Care” Exploration Of Impact Of Nurses’ Shortage On Patient’s Care At Federal Teaching Hospital

ABSTRACT

The nursing shortage in Federal Teaching Hospitals has undermined the hospital’s goal of rendering quality and excellent care. The purpose of this study therefore was to analyze the impact of nurses’ shortage from the views of its causes, impacts on patient care and nurses work life using all cadres of nurses working in the institution as study sample. A descriptive case study research design was adopted for the study and a sample of two hundred and sixty nurses were selected from the nurse’s population of 367. A validated questionnaire constructed by the researcher was used to collect data for the study. Data derived from the study were subjected to simple descriptive statistics. Major findings of the study revealed that the nurses are aware of the impact of nurses’ shortage in FETH (64.6%); findings also showed that negative factors in the work environment in FETH that affects recruitment and retention were responsible for the nursing shortage (mean response of 3. 71). Also impacts of the shortage on the patient care such as increase in medication errors and increase in mortality rate were revealed. The study also found out the effects of the shortage on nurses’ work life such as increase in job dissatisfaction and burnout. It is recommended that the factors in the work environment of FETH which affects recruitment and retention of nurses be addresses. Read More »

Biafra Agitation: Any Justification?

Biafra Agitation: Any Justification?

CHAPTER TWO

BIAFRA AGITATION AS LED BY CHIEF RALPH UWAZURIKE

Having explained about Uwazuruike and this New Biafra in the introductory part of this work, we are going straight to the causes of the agitation.

 2.1 The Causes of the Agitation

Uwazuruike’s reasons for the agitation as contained in the August 1999 communiqué, his various speeches, interviews etc, can be summarized as saying the following: The total exclusion of the Igbos from Nigeria’s important affairs especially in politics shows that they are not real citizens and therefore not wanted in Nigeria. Nigeria has not been able to reabsorb the Igbos since the end of the war. The promises of the Nigerian government after the war have not been matched with action and the Igbos have since then been largely marginalized, and there is a total infrastructural neglect in the East as a result. The abandoned property and the twenty pounds policy after the war were meant to destroy the Igbos economically. Read More »

Machiavellian Principle and Nigerian Society

A Comparative Analysis of Machiavellian Principle and Nigerian Society

ABSTRACT

Niccolo Machiavelli appears to have generated more controversy than any of his contemporaries. So much notoriety has gathered around his name that the charge of being a Machiavellian still remains a serious accusation in current political debate. Political thinkers from time immemorial had propounded one theory after another, all geared toward the betterment and upliftment of humanity. One salient feature of all these theories is that the propounders have the same objective mentally but their ideological and methodological approaches are what alienated one from the other.

In the case of Machiavelli, he posited a complex relationship between morality and politics, and associated the office of a ruler with the ability to know and act within the political world as it is and with the beastly abilities to dispense violence and practice deception. Besides, the hallmark of Machiavellianism lies in the fact that evil means can be used to achieve good end. Hence, when one has a good intention personal to him, what matters is not the process through which this goal is achieved but the emphasis lies on the fact of being able to attain the selfish interest. However, my concern is to x-ray philosophically the principle of Machiavelli and how its influences have held the contemporary Nigerian society to ransom. Read More »

Social Status in Plato’s Ideal State

Social Status in Plato’s Ideal State: Its Relevance to Nigerian Society

 

CHAPTER TWO

2:0    LITERATURE REVIEW

Man is naturally a social animal; that is why Aristotle said, “He who is unable to live in society or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself must be either a beast or a god”1. Because of the inevitability of human society, the study of different aspects of human society also became inevitable. Some thinkers who studied human society came to the conclusion that differences in social status of the individuals in any given society are inevitable and important. For this reason, many thinkers have tried to study different areas of social status and stratification, coming out with views and theories on status in the society. Here it will be good to x-ray how some thinkers tried to portray their idea of social status in practice and others in writings and teachings. Read More »

Man in a Sciento-Technological Era

The Fate of Man in a Sciento-Technological Era (A Philosophical Examination Of The Ideas Of Alexander Denis)

 

CHAPTER TWO

2.0 Mechanisms and Meaning

In the chapter two of his book ‘Beyond Science’, Alexander Denis alludes that science and its application can in no way say all about (man) human life and nature at large. The mechanistic claim of Galileo that the sun rotates round the earth was refuted when it was discovered that the reverse was the case. Alexander is well convinced that the application of science is mechanical and so is built under a shaky foundation. In other words, the application of science and technology cannot be equalled to the meaning derivable from human life and nature in its entirety. Science and technology cannot really say all about human life. Read More »

Justice In John Rawls: Nigerian Democracy

Justice In John Rawls Vis-À-Vis Nigerian Democracy

CHAPTER TWO

CONCEPTUAL ANALYSIS

2.1     GENERAL NOTION OF JUSTICE

It is obvious that the idea of justice lies at the heart of moral and political philosophy from time immemorial. Indeed, it is a cardinal virtue that regulates individuals in their relationship with others. Infect, it a principal virtue of social organisation. Traditionally, justice is defined by the Latin tag, suum cuique tribuere, which means “to allocate to each his own.”1 St. Thomas Aquinas, being a natural law theorist sees justice, as “the virtue which observes the right of all. Justice keeps its character as an individual virtue seeking the particular good of each man in relation with all others.”2 In line of these thoughts, Rawls defines justice as “the first virtue of social institutions, as truth is of systems of thought. For this reason justice denies that the loss of freedom for some is made right by a greater good shared by others.”3 Read More »
