LASUTH reacts to medical report impersonating doctor in patient’s fund scam
Chief Medical Director of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Adetokunbo Fabamwo has reacted to a funding scam involving the hospital’s pediatrician (name withheld) and a patient, Agboola Feranmi.
According to CMD, their attention was drawn to what he describes as a “dubious” medical report by some unscrupulous individuals, soliciting for funds to carry out surgery on the above named patient who was said to be 20 years old.
He lamented, “It is invidious falsehood that the mentioned specialist in the report attended to the patient. Similarly, no medical report in respect of the alleged patient, neither request for funding emanated from our hospital. It is neither our practice nor the practice of any practitioner in LASUTH to append signatures on appeal for funds on behalf of a patient. We wish to call the attention of the general public to such publication and many others, that the management of this institution will never issue such an unprofessional document, stating the health conditions of a patient in details to solicit for funds from the public. This confusing and fake document did not emanate from us and the doctor mentioned is unaware of the purported document.”
He implored Nigerians to endeavour to crosscheck and ensure the validity of medical reports via firstname.lastname@example.org
