No patient died at UITH during warning strike — CMD
Management of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), Ilorin, Kwara State has said that no patient died during a recent warning strike in the hospital.
It would be recalled that a private television station had reported that the recent strike in the teaching hospital led to the death of a patient who was on ventilator.
Speaking with journalists in Ilorin, the UITH Deputy Chief Medical Advisory Committee (D-CMAC) Clinical Services, Dr. Louis Odegha, said the patient in question absconded from the hospital without settling his medical bills.
Besides, Odegha said: “UITH as a tertiary health institution would never embark on total strike without granting waivers to critical areas like emergency, Neo-natal, Oxygen plant and many others.”
