No extramarital affairs

Luke Rawalai

FIJI Nursing Services director Silina Ledua is discouraging extramarital affairs among nurses saying it was a form of indiscipline.

Mrs Ledua said they would only interfere in cases where extramarital affairs had affected and compromised the care of patients.

"Many nurses have their own interpretations of the discipline cases where nurses have been terminated because of extramarital affairs," said Mrs Ledua.

"We have only terminated nurses because we have monitored their work and found that they have compromised the care of patients for the affairs they were involved in."

"This does not mean however that we are encouraging nurses to have extramarital affairs, we discourage these practices," she said.

Mrs Ledua said extramarital affairs were closely associated with incompetency and she advised nurses to refrain from such activities.
