An Abuja-based Hospital has been accused of refusing to treat a Nigerian man because his family could not produce a police report.
A nephew of the deceased, Michael Ikyaator, who took to his twitter page to share the story, said the deceased slumped and was rushed to the hospital but the hospital staff allegedly refused to attend to him because they had no police report.
His tweet reads ;
My uncle slumped yesterday in Abuja and was rushed to the Asokoro District Hospital, the hospital refused to treat him and insisted on a police report, he died in the car he was brought in, he wasn’t shot or stabbed. What have we done to the Nigerian healthcare system?
Not too long after we lost Moradeun Balogun to the same careless system, another innocent Nigerian has to die over a senseless and heartless policy. Who invented the police report policy and why do they still insist on it?
He wasnt in any form of violence, passed out, why did we need to bring a police report??? All of the hospital staff at Asokoro District Hospital refused to treat until he died in car he was brought in. I am lost for words here.
