In the recent past, health care provision in government hospitals in LDCs has turned into something akin of a sham. Myriad problems abound ranging from low morale among health care service providers, lack of equipments, poor working environment and inappropriate policies among others. Considerable interest has been expressed globally in the quality of work done in various professions including nursing. The study observed organizational policies and administrative practices, professional status and qualifications of the nurses, conditions and schemes of service, physical facilities and lastly work relationships with other health care workers using ‘snapshot’ of responses with regard to job satisfaction. Majority of the nurses were not satisfied with terms and conditions, environmental facilities and working relationship with other health care workers. Whereas there was a significant difference in satisfaction across the hospital with regard to organization policies, administrative practice of the job, environmental facilities and working relationship, no significant difference in job satisfaction was seen across nurses’ qualifications.
