Nurses and Midwifery Council of Malawi (NMCM) has suspended nine nurses across the country due to negligence.
The verdict follows reports of some nurses being negligent leading to loss of lives of Malawians who at that time needed utmost care.
NMCM board chairperson Bertha Chikuse said the decision followed analysis and consultation with their lawyers.
A case reports include a nurse and a medical assistant delayed, an ambulance from a health centre to Mangochi District Hospital which led to the death of a 15-year-old pregnant woman who was bleeding.
The two stopped the ambulance because one of the health workers wanted to check clothes at a tailoring shop.
A few kilometres later, the nurse stopped the ambulance as she wanted to buy baobab fruits locally known as â€˜Malambeâ€™ for her juice business.
The pregnant woman died before the ambulance reached the hospital.
