The hospital has a Manual of Employment. Working hours have remained 8 hours a day for Medical Officers, Nurses, Midwives, and Allied Health Professionals. They all had 12 hour night shifts on the basis of rotations. The support staffs worked six hours a day with the exception of Security personnel; who had 12-hour night shifts on rotational arrangements. There is still no Human Resource Officer, a post doubled by the Hospital Administrator. The need for a Human Resource Development Plan exists. The basis for fixing the present hospital Establishment has been affordability to pay the attached salaries and benefits.
Staff facilities and incentives have been planned and implemented. Salaries have been harmonized to the Government rates and Lunch allowances promptly paid. Other duty and responsibility related allowances were accordingly awarded. Free accommodation existed for residents housed in hospital premises. Compensation for rent to those housed in private and personal premises were paid.
A career development policy existed and opportunities were given to cadres in critical areas of need. Refresher courses through workshops and seminars held within and outside the district were attended. Some of the staff went for specific trainings in some programmes like TB control, HIV/AIDS, EMOC and clinical pastoral care for the sick.
