Kano Govt Closes Private Hospital Over Two Reported Mysterious Deaths

Most Read

The Kano State Government has shut down Green-Olives Hospital, a private healthcare service providing centre in the state after two patients reportedly died at the facility in the last six months.

Dr Usman Tijjani Aliyu, the Executive Secretary of Kano State Private Health Institutions Management Agency (PHIMA) stated this in a statement saying that the agency received a report from the committee of citizens of Gwale local government area of the state about how mismanagement and negligence from the authorities at the hospital lead the circumstantial two patients at the hospital.

Daily Trust reports that after a thorough investigation by PHIMA, it is evident that the hospital was found to be culpable of poor handling of the patients which lead to their separate deaths, hence its resolve to close the hospital.

According to the statement, “The surgeon serves as the Anaesthetic nurse, perioperative nurse and assistant surgeon as well, hence he alone does the four jobs during surgery, and this is grossly unethical by all standards.

“Consent forms were not signed before surgery, patients were not adequately prepared before surgery and no intraoperative monitoring of patients during surgery,” the statement added.

Dr Adamu appealed to residents to report such cases of malpractices wherever in Kano for prompt action.

He also assured that the culprit would be dealt with in accordance with the guidelines of the agency, adding that the agency would continue to collaborate with people of Kano State and other civil organisations to fight quackery and patients’ mismanagement in the private health sector across the state.
