Fiji’s Ministry of Health will discipline doctors or nurses found to be ill-treating patients.

Speaking to FijiLive health spokesman Peni Namotu said complaints about patients' ill-treatment from doctors and nurses have been ongoing and supervisors have been told to look out for those who are doing this.

“Any patient who wants to complain can contact their nearest health facility or come and see me directly at the Ministry of Health office,” said Namotu.

He also said all health officials in hospitals should treat all patients equally with respect despite their age and avoid any ill-treatment.
