A protracted power cut at the Police Hospital in Accra has resulted in the turning away of emergency cases.
The facility is also transferring planned surgeries and complicated cases to other hospitals in Accra. The hospital has been without power since Friday morning and power plants are reportedly dysfunctional.
So far, scores of worried patients are seen wondering at the premises while those already on admission are being frustrated by heat. The police hospital is documented to be one of the most attended public hospitals in Ghana considering the improvement of health facilities there.
