The issue of medical negligence in Ghana has been causing harm to many people as it keeps lingering unchecked.
Famed broadcaster with Angel Broadcasting Network, Nana Yaa Brefo has shared a harrow experience with negligent health personnel who attended to her while giving birth to her second child.
A few days ago, the Greater Accra Regional Hospital also known as the Ridge Hospital was hit with a scandal when a lecturer lost his wife due to the wrong prescription of a drug. This triggered the conversation with patients who have a similar experience to share on Angel FM hosted by Captain Smart.
Nana Yaa Brefo who could not hold back her tear had no option but share her story.
“I have been crying since because I have a similar situation as i sit here, it’s quite emotional for me when i talk about it” she told Captain Smart.
Not having a womb, according to Nana Yaa Brefo, makes her similar to a male because having a womb is the only evidence that proves otherwise. She added that she had not had a womb for thirteen years.
“You don’t have what?” A shocked Captain Smart asked repeatedly to confirm what he had just heard.
“I don’t have a womb,” the radio personality stressed. Throwing light onto the development she said the doctors told her a previous surgery left holes in her womb so they had to take it out to save her life.
