    LUTH at 60: Physiotherapist tasks health workers on good posture

    Rotimi Kareem, a doctor of Physical Medicine at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH),  on Wednesday urged health workers to always maintain good postures to enhance their health.

    Kareem delivered a lecture titled, “Postural Challenges: Barrier to Productive and Active Service Life’’ , organised by LUTH.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the lecture is the first in the series of lectures  to celebrate LUTH at 60. The therapist noted that the complications and consequences of poor postures were detrimental to the wellbeing of health personnel.

    He identified some of them as: low back pain, increased disability among workers, spinal joint dysfunction, degenerative joint diseases and pot belly among others.

    He said: “Our active life today is public service, our body must align or respond well to the force of gravity.

    “We must imbibe the culture of repositioning ourselves well, when we are not well positioned and when we  carry out our various duties.

    “Posture is everything about our life as humans whether we are sitting, standing or sleeping because they all reflect different postures.

    “The benefits of good posture helps to reduce risk of joint pain, stress reduction, it enhances confidence among others.

    “It is important that as we care for others, we should also care for ourselves, so that we will not fall victim of the same sickness our patients are going through,” he said.

    Prof. Chris Bode, the Chief Medical Director of LUTH, said the lecture was very paramount to the wellbeing of staff members.

    Bode, represented by Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee, Prof. Wasiu Adeyemo, said it was very vital for health workers to be fit to carry out their duties effectively.

    “If you are not fit, you cannot take care of your patients, we care about our staff, that is why we came up with this first lecture which has to do with our health,” he said.

    “More lectures that will be of help to our personnel will come up in the course of the LUTH@60 celebration,” he said.

    LUTH @60: we have many reasons to celebrate our modest achievements- CMD

    Prof. Chris Bode, Chief Medical Director (CMD), Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, says the institution has several reasons to celebrate its modest achievements on its 60th anniversary.

    Bode made this known on Monday in Lagos at the opening ceremony marking LUTH’s 60th anniversary.

    He said that the institution had, over the years, remained one of the best hospital in Nigeria.

    “A major breakthrough of the successful conception and delivery of the first authentic test tube (In-Vitro-Fertilisation) baby was performed by the duo of Prof Frank Giwa-Osagie and Prof Oladapo Ashiru.

    “LUTH has the highest concentration of skilled medical and paramedical staff in different areas of medicine.

    “LUTH also boasts of a comprehensive Diagnostic Centre and VIP Clinic, state of the art Laboratories, Radiotherapy and Renal Dialysis facilities.

    “From a humble beginning of 330 beds, LUTH today, is the largest Teaching Hospital in Nigeria with over 1000 beds and with the College of Medicine of the University of Lagos,” he said.

    The CMD said that LUTH had trained hundreds of medical, dental, pharmacy and other allied health science students and produced thousands of nurses, laboratory scientists among others.

    He said that LUTH was a unique institution in not only having such a large catchment population but also having a large concentration of highly specialised manpower.

    He said the manpower enabled it to respond to a variety of health conditions and training since 1962, contributing in no small way in the training of medical and paramedical personnel.

    Bode said that LUTH was the only federal teaching hospital with its independent power project that generated its own electricity.

    He said that a new complex, comprising five buildings of four floors each to house 256 consultation rooms, 16 waiting areas, 16 nursing stations, eight meeting rooms and many other facilities, was presently under construction.

    According to him, LUTH has grown from a 500-bedded hospital to 760-bedded facility, and then to more than 1000-bedded hospital serving more than 25 million people in Lagos and its neighbouring states.

    “Recently LUTH played a very significant role in stemming the tide of COVID-19 pandemic.

    As we look to the future, we must reflect on the past 60 years and imagine what LUTH shall be at its centennial in another 40 years.

    “There will always be challenges, let us focus on the celebration, life is full of challenges, but we are here to rise to surmount the challenges,” he said.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that LUTH @60 logo was also unveiled immediately after the opening ceremony.

    NAN also reports that there will be series of events spread over three months in celebration of LUTH @60.

    NCDC, LUTH to deepen collaboration in fight against COVID-19

    Prof Chris Bode, Chief Medical Director (CMD) Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), said institution would streghten its collaboration with Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) to fight COVID-19.

     

    Bode spoke with the News Agency of  Nigeria on the sideline of the NCDC visitation to LUTH in Lagos on Saturday.

     

    He said since Dr Ifedayo Adetifa came on board as the D-G of NCDC, he had brought his vast skills on vaccine impact and monitoring to bear.

     

    He said he had expanded the frontiers of managing not only the COVID-19 pandemic but also a number of other prevailing diseases.

     

    Bode said that Adetifa had his residency training at LUTH and the visit was a homecoming.

     

    He expressed confidence that the visit would provide an opportunity to further cement the cooperation between LUTH and NCDC.

     

    He recalled the “wonderful working relationship and collaboration with LUTH”, especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.

     

    “Many institutions closed up and shut down in the raging days of the pandemic.

     

    “We do not blame them, the fear was high as apocalyptic predictions were made for African landscape.

     

    “We in LUTH, however, stepped up to the plate and did our own heavy lifting in contribution to the national efforts to contain the disease,” he said.

     

    The CMD said LUTH laboratories first diagnosed the disease.

     

    He said the hospital Department of Community Medicine was closely involved in contact tracing and was part of the policy making at the emergency operation centre.

     

    He said its clinicians admitted and treated over 1000 cases, most with multiple co-morbidities requiring multi-disciplinary management.

     

    He said LUTH psychiatrist established the emotional and psychosocial support group that was later adopted by Lagos State to render invaluable psychosocial support for patients and relations of COVID-19.

     

    Bode said that LUTH trained other hospitals and squares from other states on how to set up their own effective COVID-19 isolation centres.

     

    He said its researched efforts on the pandemic were top class and the hospital was proud of all it had achieved in collaboration with the NCDC.
