Trauma Hospital allegedly dumps accident victim in bush over unpaid bills

A shocking incident has come to light in the Central Region, where an accident victim, a woman in her sixties, was allegedly dumped in a bush at Gomoa Ojobi by officials of the Trauma and Specialist Hospital in Winneba.

According to eyewitnesses, the victim was left in the bush along the highway after an ambulance from the hospital dropped her off.

 

The victim, who was unable to pay her medical bills, was discharged prematurely and later died a few hours later.

Residents are outraged and surprised that a facility like the Trauma and Specialist Hospital, considered one of the best in the region, could take such action.

Management of the hospital has been holding meetings with the Central Regional Health Directorate, but an official communication is yet to be released on the matter.

Metro News has learned that the hospital administration took the decision to dump the patient due to the Social Welfare Department’s failure to respond to their calls to cater for the patient.
