Widower “Dr Emmanuel Kobina Okuto” seeks Legal Consent about the sudden Demise of his wife at The Ridge Hospital (Accra)



Director of Ghana Institute of Languages (GIL) Dr Emmanuel Kobina Kuto recounts heartbreaking medical negligence @ Ridge Hospital πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

Folks, last night I lost my wife at Ridge Hospital.

My wife checked in at the hospital Sunday evening. She had been due for surgery Monday morning.

We agreed that I would return to the hospital in the afternoon when she would have returned from the theater.

That’s how it happened. I returned to her. She narrated the experience to me. I stayed with her till 8pm when the orderly came to ask me to leave.

When I returned the next morning, my wife had taken a turn for the worst. She was sweating profusely and was in severe pain. The change was really dramatic.

I asked her if the doctor had seen her. She said no but the nurse had given her medication earlier on. She asked me to take her to the washroom. By this time she was screaming in pain.

I managed to sit her on the WC. But as she attempted to relieve herself she suddenly went limp and crumbled onto the floor. She was unconscious.

I rushed out to seek help. A couple of nurses came in to help. She regained consciousness but she was in a terrible shape.

The next one hour was hell as there was no doctor immediately available.
After about an hour the doctor arrived. He examined my wife and asked the nurse what medication had been administered. The nurse mentioned something I don’t remember. The doctor asked if she was sure and she said yes.

The doctor then went through my wife’s folder and then got on a phone with one of the doctors who attended to her saying "You've repeated this mistake again"… I got so cold after hearing this from the doctor and seeing the nurses available laughing about the situation.

My problem is, he says "The medical report they took from me without giving me permission to take a shot of it , I feel they treated my wife as if she was nothing worth living".
