Scores of Junior Doctors, House Officers and other medical practitioners at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital have presented a petition to management about recent happenings at the nation’s premier health facility with the latest being the death of a colleague on Sunday night.
The health practitioners who were singing dirges are also mourning with the family of Desmond Kabah, son of the Member of Parliament for Chiana Paga.
The President of the House Officers at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr.
Vincent Ganu, told Accra-based Joy FM
on Tuesday that part of their reason for presenting the petition was because management had failed to execute its promise of lighting up the area with enough street lights and must provide adequate security within the next 24 hours.
According to Dr.
Ganu, the fear of the doctors has heightened because they are unable to ascertain the cause of death of their colleague; whether it was an armed robbery attack or serial killing.
He said the mood of almost all the medical practitioners of the hospital “is that of anger, that of sadness and generally that of mourning.”
Ganu, however, added that they have not felt any safer, especially after the incident and have not been given any realistic assurance from management of the hospital apart from the verbal ones.
