Patients Groan As Doctors’ Strike Enters Second Day




The many patients at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital on Friday groaned as they were abandoned by striking resident doctors in the hospital, a report by The PUNCH has shown.

A check showed that patients in critical conditions had to resort to alternative helps.

Mr Charles Benjamin, son to one of the patients at the Accident and Emergency Unit, lamented the adversity the industrial action unleashed on the health of his father.

Benjamin, who explained that his father was billed to undergo two surgical operations on Friday, noted that the old man was groaning due to severe pain the operation would have addressed.

He said he might have to take his father to a private hospital if the pain persisted to save his life.

He urged the Federal Government to address the yearnings of the striking doctors in the interest of the public.

A member of staff of the hospital, who preferred anonymity, said that many patients had been discharged since Wednesday before the strike commenced.

She said only patients with serious conditions were been skeletally attended to by consultants in the hospital.

Many relatives of patients at the hospital were seen in groups lamenting the situation brought forth by the indefinite strike of the Association of Resident Doctors.

Dr Ifeanyin Ofuani, the President of the ARDs, UBTH branch, said patients were not being attended to because the strike was total.

He stated that no resident doctor would attend to any patient either emergency or not, but noted, however, that consultants were on the ground to attend to an emergency.

When reminded that the Federal Government said it had reached an agreement with the association, Ofuani refuted the claim.

“We have not reached any agreement with the Federal Government. They gave us another Memorandum of Understanding or action, whatever they call it, to sign and we are tired of that.

“We have been signing that since 2014 and up till today, they have not honoured any of the understandings.

“So we want action; we don’t want memorandum anymore,” he said.
