On Tuesday, it was reported that a doctor (daughter of the Ashanti Regional NSS director) who is doing her housemanship at the Manhyia District Hospital had prescribed a valium medicine for a child in the children's ward.
According to reports, the medication caused confusion between the nurse and the doctor, who notified her father, Alex Opoku-Mensah, the Ashanti Regional NSS Director, who besieged the Manhyia Hospital on Sunday and verbally attacked the nurse.
As per him, the doctor did not administer valium to any of the children because she works in the surgical ward rather than the children's ward.
“The doctor didn’t prescribe a valium to any child as speculated on social media because she doesn’t work at the children’s ward, she works at the surgical ward.”
Detailing what exactly brought about the rift, Dr Kamarudeen Korku Hussein narrated that;
“A doctor (Daughter of Ashanti Regional NSS director) prescribed a drip for a patient and left for her office.
The nurse who was on duty went to a pharmacy but could not get that drip therefore she informed the doctor to come back and change the drip….
Another doctor who was on duty tried to make the change but he could not use the in-system code (ID) to effect the changes….. So the nurse decided to call the doctor who made the prescription to come back and make the changes because she (the doctor) was still at the facility; she needed the simplest way to correct the situation.
So she (the nurse) called the doctor on phone and asked her to come and make a change to the drip. The doctor responded she isn’t on duty so the other doctor on duty should make the change.
So according to the doctor, as she was talking, the nurse dropped the call because she (the nurse) had an emergency.
The doctor returned to change the drip but whatever transpired between the two, I can’t tell. I spoke to them and both of them told me, they spoke to each other politely.” Dr Kamarudeen Korku Hussein stated.
