YEN.com.gh has sighted a sad photo of the widow and son of the man who died because he could not be admitted to the hospital due to “no bed”.
Mr. Anthony Opoku-Acheampon, seventy years of age, was allegedly denied admission to the seven hospitals his wife and son had taken him to on the dawn of Sunday, June 10, 2018.
According to reports, the family had combed hospitals in Accra including C&J Medicare in Adabraka, Korle Bu Polyclinic, Ridge Hospital, Police Hospital, the Trust Hospital, the La Polyclinic, before finally arriving at the Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) Hospital, at Teshie, where he finally died.

The photo was sighted on the Facebook page of one Johnnie Beresford Hughes who had visited the family to mourn with them.
Johnnie himself was captured sitting in the midst of the widow and her son, Ishmael Opoku Acheampon, and they all look gloomy and wear sad faces.
According to Johnnie, the widow, Mrs. Acheampon, has been crying uncontrollably because her husband is no more.
Her tears were reportedly flowing like a river for she refused to be comforted because her “baobab tree” under which she lodges for protection and survival has been cut down.
The sad photo, and the circumstances under which Mr. Acheampon died has caused some pains to Ghanaians.

Ishmael had narrated how his father died painfully in his car because all the seven hospitals they had visited had turned them away because of “no bed”.
He revealed in an earlier interview that his father was not sick, but only complained of headache on the dawn of that Sunday, which led them to comb through Accra for medical assistance which was woefully denied them.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Health, Hon. Agyemang-Manu, speaking in an interview on GHOne TV and monitored by YEN.com.gh said the seven hospitals would be brought to book.
He stressed that such negligence is a crime which would not be condoned.
