Management of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital, also known as Ridge says it is probing the circumstances under which a patient died on the evening of June 25, 2020, while receiving treatment at the facility.
The patient in question is a 48-year-old woman said to have been wrongly medicated.
Her husband, Emmanuel Kuto, the Director of the Ghana Institute of Languages, who broke the news on social media described some staff of the Hospital as callous.
He had taken to Facebook to express what he said was the “impunity” and “total disregard for accountability” displayed by some staff of the hospital.
But the hospital authorities say they are taking appropriate steps to expeditiously bring finality to the matter.
“Management will like to assure the public that, with a matter of urgency, an investigation has been instituted into this unfortunate incident in order to establish events leading to the sad situation.
‘The findings of the investigations would be shared with all stakeholders”, the hospital’s Medical Supretenidnt, Dr. Emmanuel K. Srofenyoh noted in a statement.
While commiserating with the widower and the bereaved family, the hospital says it will continue to prioritize the health and safety of its clients.
“We will like to assure you that we will continue to provide quality health care to the people of this country and beyond. Mahameneht would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the husband and family.”
