A Nigerian mother has accused a doctor at the Ikorodu General Hospital of neglecting her 9 months old son who needed urgent medical attention.
According to @guccioyin who took to her Twitter handle to narrate the incident, the said doctor left her son and other patients to go pray and as they waited she realised her son couldn’t breathe properly. Her son died hours later after she was told they couldn’t admit him as there was no bed at the hospital.
The nurse, however, offered the sick child oxygen to resuscitate and keep him stable till a doctor becomes available.
Around 5am, when the doctor eventually showed up, @Guccyoyin, claimed that he showed no sign of empathy and did not put his best foot forward while he was attending to her son.
The broken mum said she eventually lost her son around 10am on the same day he was rushed to the hospital, and even at that time, the doctor still did not show any signs of remorse for his actions.
@Guccioyin is now demanding justice and has promised to file a petition againist the doctor for ”incompetency”. Continue to read her thread.
