Pregnant Woman losses life due to negligence of Doctor - at Kanayo Specialist Hospital Onitsha Anambra State
It was a case of an awful comic adventure in the early hours of the day at Kanayo Specialist Hospital Onitsha Anambra State on March 9 2020.
At the hospital, the hands they could get unprofessionally resulted in the loss of a beautiful woman, wife, mother, sister and invaluable colleague.
Her name was Mrs Nneka Obidinnu (Nee Ezike-Nwarie)
A staff of Fidelity Bank PLC from Azia Town in Ihiala LGA. Anambra State
The hospital is the Bank's staff hospital.
It was an uncomplicated pregnancy that she carried to term. She has previously had 3 Children successfully through normal delivery in another specialist hospital.
She has been attending ante natal services there and was not a candidate of emergency management.
On the day of delivery, she was mismanaged by the medical personnel which resulted in the need for an Emergency Ceasarean Section.
Unfortunately, no qualified doctor was present. Even, their theatre is not equipped with the appropriate medical equipment and personnel to manage emergency situations.
The Medical Officer that carried out the CS operation was utterly unqualified to engage in such escapade.
This resulted in the loss of the baby as well as the beloved mother.
The family wept.
The family wept bitterly that it sought Justice from the Good Lord God.
Currently, the State Ministry of Health and the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) investigated the incidence and Kanayo Specialist Hospital was indicted for unwholesome and unscrupulous practice. These health regulatory bodies swung into action by sealing down the hospital till further notice.
It is well.
