A visit to the Out-Patient-Department (OPD) at the Trust Hospital in Osu saw several patients both feeble and weak waiting for between 2 to 3 solid hours just to have the results of the laboratory test.

All means to seeks answers over this issue at the hospital turned futile as checks by YEN indicates that reasons behind these delays could be linked to aggrieved nurses who may be working out of rage or the breakdown of facilities at the Laboratory.

“My wife is seriously ill, she can barely walk. The doctor told us to go for a malaria test and I was shocked when the lab technician told us to wait for between 2 to 3 hours or even come the next day for her lab results. I mean, how?” An angry patient complained to YEN.

Meanwhile, random checks at various health institutions including the Korle-Bu teaching hospital reveal that basic tests like that of malaria and Full Blood Count (FBC) could take less than 30 minutes before results could be released.
