Frustrated relatives some of whom have lost dear ones following the ongoing no-bed syndrome in some hospitals in the country, are saying the nation is doomed if its premier health facility Korle-bu Teaching Hospital is also mingling in the canker.
On our visit to the facility, patients were receiving medical care in chairs instead of beds.
This according to hospital authority is as a result of increased emergency and referral cases from other facilities in the country.
Some patients have overstayed the somewhat 48 hour period at the emergency unit.
A clear case was a man who was involved in a head on car coalition on Tuesday and was treated in a chair at the accident unit.
Public Relations Officer, Mustapha Salifu told the press the situation is under control as a unit is under preparation to absorb excessive cases. The very unit was inspected by the deputy Minister of Health, Hon. Tina Gifty Naa Ayeley Mensah on Tuesday including having herself acquainted with the issues on grounds. On the same day the hospital counted about fifty excess patients but the number was reduced by Wednesday noon.
