By Benjamin Flowers: The Nurses Association of Belize (NAB) has taken umbrage with radio talk show host Joe Bradley for insulting remarks made against graduates from the University of Belize’s nursing program.
Bradley, who is no stranger to being flagged for offensive speech, described the graduates as being “dumb as a doornail” while live on wave Radio and Wave TV’s morning talk show.
“The comment made by Mr. Joe Bradley on Wave TV and Radio’s live Morning Show on Thursday, August 11, 2022 is exceedingly disrespectful to the incredible sacrifice that our nurses have made, and continue to make, on a daily basis,” the NAB said.
The association came to UB’s defense noting that, since 2000, the majority of nurses in Belize have been Ub graduates, and that the university provides the avenue for nurses of this country to attain higher education and provides them with the education and skills to meet the health needs of the country.
The association also took the time to remind the public that there are established complaint procedures to report dissatisfaction with the care provided by nurses, and also encouraged the country’s nurses to remain steadfast in their profession.
“Nurses, do not be discouraged, and may you all be as solid as the nail that is needed to secure a door, in securing and maintaining quality health care services for our population,” the NAB added.
