 UMUAHIA - The Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Umuahia, one of the leading healthcare institutions in Abia State, has come under scrutiny after it was revealed that the center has failed to pay the salary arrears of its intern nurses, medical laboratory technicians, dietitians, and physiotherapists for the past two months.


The alarming revelation has caused distress among the affected healthcare professionals, who have been working tirelessly to provide essential medical services amidst the ongoing lassa fever outbreak and economic hardship across the country. The delay in salary payment has not only impacted their financial well-being but has also created a sense of demotivation and frustration among the workforce.

Intern nurses, who are an integral part of the healthcare system, play a vital role in providing patient care, while medical laboratory technicians ensure accurate diagnosis through their laboratory tests. Dietitians play a crucial role in planning and monitoring the nutritional needs of patients, and physiotherapists provide rehabilitative care, helping patients regain their mobility and independence.

The affected professionals have voiced their concerns, expressing their disappointment in the management's failure to address the issue promptly. They argue that the delayed salary payment not only affects their personal lives but also raises questions about the hospital's financial management and commitment to its employees.

In response to these allegations, a staff of the management department of FMC Umuahia who pleaded anonymity has acknowledged the salary arrears and attributed the delay to financial constraints faced by the institution. They assured the affected staff that efforts are being made to resolve the issue as soon as possible. However, this explanation has done little to ease the concerns of the affected professionals, who argue that their dedication and hard work deserve timely and fair compensation.

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and other professional bodies should take note of the situation and are closely monitoring the developments and as such call on the management of FMC Umuahia to prioritize the welfare of its employees and ensure prompt payment of their salaries.

As the issue gains attention, it is hoped that the authorities will take swift action to address the salary arrears and restore the confidence of the healthcare professionals at FMC Umuahia. The dedication and commitment shown by these individuals, especially during the challenging times of the recent outbreak, deserve recognition and fair treatment.

The situation at FMC Umuahia highlights the need for improved financial management and effective communication between healthcare institutions and their employees. It serves as a reminder that the well-being of healthcare professionals should not be overlooked, as they play a crucial role in ensuring the delivery of quality healthcare services to the community.

The intern nurses, medical laboratory technicians, dietitians, and physiotherapists at FMC Umuahia remain hopeful that their salary arrears will be resolved promptly, allowing them to continue their essential work without the added burden of financial stress.
