The health care system is gradually falling apart in Kasoa as patients and health officials complain about dilapidated health structures.
In a news interview on Pink news, with one patient in the person of Rhodalyn Aryee, she narrated her ordeal saying that she rushed to a hospital at Nyanaano when she realized she was in labour, but was was later transferred to a different hospital at Liberia Camp where she encountered hostile attitudes and late medical care attention from health officials, precisely nurses.
Moreover she stressed that, she was transferred to a hospital in Winneba where she witnessed the dilapidated structure of the hospital. Rhodalyn Aryee says, ” I was in labour at the time but was told there were not enough beds, despite the fact that nurses were ready to take care of me.” She was again transferred to a hospital in the same town where she unfortunately lost the baby.
“One will ask why a country like Ghana after gaining 61 years of independence, still face challenges with health care issues especially lack of sufficient beds.
Government officials especially those responsible for handling health care issues are therefore called upon to seek to the proper facilitation of hospitals by stocking the place with beds and provide affordable health care systems for patients.
Furthermore, health officials assigned to various hospitals should desist from portraying hostile attitudes towards patients and perform their duties effectively and efficiently.
