Association offers support to arrested nurse in Samoa

From , 5:03 am on 13 August 2018

The head of the Samoa Nurses' Association says she will be visiting the nurse being held in custody to offer her legal and moral guidance as she faces charges relating to the death of two babies following immunisation last month.

Last week the police charged a nurse with obstructing the course of the investigations into the deaths and she is now in Tafaigata Prison.

President of the Nurses Association, Sonialofi Papalii, spoke to Jenny Meyer about how the organisation may be able to assist the nurse involved and the fallout in the nursing community in Samoa.
