Combat Facebook, cell phone addiction

The Vice President for Administration of the United Methodist University or UMU, the Rev. Dr. Isaac Chukpue Padmore, has called on health workers, mainly nurses and care providers as well as bankers and those whose vocations require them to serve the public daily to combat addiction to Facebook and mobile phone in order to adequately achieve their goals.

Speaking recently at the 70th capping, striping and candle lighting program of the Winfred J. Harley College of Health Sciences held at the Millier McAllister United Methodist Church in Ganta, Nimba County, he said some of those persons who find themselves serving people on a large scale daily lack basic services and care for their customers.

He specifically noted that nurses at every health facility or center are seen daily focusing on their phones rather than seeking the welfare of patients, who have been rushed at their facility.
The United Methodist prelate also accused Liberians generally for not cultivating and maintaining care and customer’s services for people who go at their facilities to access services, stressing the need to develop love and care for customers.

He said such quality could be achieved if Liberians changed their mines and attitudes, to move the country forward.  The Winfred J. College of Health Sciences honored 21 nursing students, who are expected to graduate shortly in Monrovia following a vigorous training program.

Meanwhile, Rv. Dr. Padmore has disclosed that for more than five years the United Methodist University has benefited subsidy form government, the assistance has been terminated without any official explanation.
