GHS investigates alleged dumping of patient in the bush in Ojobi

Earlier reports claimed that the patient was conveyed in the hospital ambulance to Ojobi, which she claimed was her home town, was left there in a wheelchair and was eventually found dead

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has launched an investigation into reports that a patient on admission at the Winneba Trauma Hospital was allegedly dumped in the bush in Gomoa Ojobi in the Central Region.

Early media reports alleged that the patient, who was on admission to the Trauma and Specialist Hospital in Winneba, was conveyed in the hospital ambulance to Ojobi, which she claimed was her home town, after her relatives failed to show up, and that she was left there in a wheelchair. The patient was later found dead.

However, in a statement issued on Friday (14 June), the Ghana Health Service (GHS) said, “The Service, upon receiving this disturbing news, has initiated investigations into the matter to establish the authenticity or otherwise of the story in line with the existing practices in the public service to enable it to take appropriate action(s).”

The GHS, therefore, has urged members of the public to be patient and assured Ghanaians that anyone found to be connected with this unfortunate incident will be dealt with severely, in accordance with provisions of the Ghana Health Service code of conduct.
