- Management of 37 Military Hospital will be shutting down its emergency unit
- This is to give way to a fumigation excersice
- The Ridge, Korlek-Bu and Police Hospitals are existing alternatives for health care
Management of the 37 Military Hospital in Accra will be shutting down the emergency unit of the hospital between May 21st to 28th so as to embark on a fumigation exercise.
The fumigation exercise is done by the hospital so as to rid the emergency unit of the spread and contraction of disease in the said place.
What this means is that all persons with emergency cases would have to seek medical care from the other two main government hospitals being the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and the Ridge Hospital.
In the midst of this announcement, there are concerns about the quality of healthcare in the country.
Joy FM had recently reported of how patients seeking emergency care are being attended to in plastic chairs with drips all over them for the shortage of beds.
Healthcare in Ghana remains one of the direst adventures to debate on as government is currently battling to revive the already weak National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) which is currently riddled with massive debts.
