Ghanaians were saddened to hear about the sudden death of a 12-year old boy because of lack of hospital infrastructure. According to Sam Nartey George, MP for Ningo Prampram he tried all he could to get the boy taken care of but all his efforts didn’t materialize as the boy passed out and couldn’t be resuscitated. This death raised concerns about the government’s commitment to health infrastructure.
Sam George joined Bernard Avle on ‘The point of View’ to discuss the real reasons for the death of the boy. According to Sam George, it was appalling to see such a thing happen. He bemoaned why it had to take himself and Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa to seek for hospital bed for the deceased. He maintained that there should be a central system for emergencies.
He explained that when a call comes to the center for emergency, there should be someone who could look on the central system and tell which hospital had beds or infrastructure to cater for the patient. He added that the matter will be tabled before Parliament when it reconvenes on Tuesday.
“Parliament is on recess and will reconvene on Tuesday. Certain action will be taken next week. I have talked to the Speaker of Parliament and we expect something to be done. The problem we are facing is political. Things have been left abandoned. Things are going to happen on Tuesday. There should be hospital management systems in place. Those responsible must be held accountable” Sam George said.
Bernard Avle who wasn’t convinced requested Sam George to promise that some action will be taken. “I am given you a pledge that I have the Speaker’s assurances and he is committed to assuring that when Parliament reconvenes some action will be taken” Sam George said
