    ABSTRACT
    Healthcare provision aims at ensuring that clients who visit a healthcare facility are provided with affordable and quality healthcare aimed at promoting the well-being of the people in the catchment areas of the healthcare facility. Considering the pivotal role played by nurses in helping deliver quality healthcare, one of the most pertinent issues has been the question of how nurses perceive motivation and how best to motivate them. The study aimed at empirically evaluating the current perception of nurses in the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital on motivation and job satisfaction and how to improve the motivation of nurses aimed at promoting quality healthcare. The study adopted a qualitative approach through in-depth interviews of a total of twenty (20) respondents including seven key informants purposely selected due to their role in the implementation of motivation policies in the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital Community. This study employed the case study design. The study found that mismanagement of the hospital’s resources was one of the challenges of motivation at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. Again, the study found that inability of nurses to express their worries and issues concerning their welfare affected motivation and job satisfaction largely. Furthermore, the study found that the hospital did not have any medical plan for nurses at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.  The study recommends that employees’ views must be sought when it comes to motivation to find out exactly what their needs are but not to impose anything on them in the name of motivating them. The study also recommends that nurses’ preferences for different benefits vary with their ages, marital status and so on. It is important for the hospital to “customise” their benefit packages and use them to their best advantage. It is important to mention that for motivation to be able to achieve its intended purpose, there is the need for the hospital to identify the individual needs in order to satisfy them accordingly to promote job satisfaction.

    ABSTRACT : The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) a pandemic. In January 2020, a previously unknown new virus was identified subsequently named the 2019 novel corona virus, and samples obtained from cases and analysis of the virus’ genetics indicated that this was the cause of the outbreak. Corona viruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Corona viruses are large pleomorphic spherical particles with bulbous surface projections. Isolation remains the most effective measure for containment of COVID-19. Moreover unnecessary administration of antibiotics should also be avoided. Critically ill patients require high flow oxygen, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), glucocorticoid therapy, and convalescent plasma. Therapeutically, aerosol administration of alpha-interferon (5 million units twice daily), chloroquine phosphate, and lopinavir/ritonavir have been suggested.
