Dr. Nanayaa Owusu-Prempeh, an advocate for Ghanaians in the Diaspora to come and settle home has shared a terrifying story of how Ghana’s health service poorly handled her cousin–leading to his death.
In a video she recorded, she states that such actions of health professionals contribute to why Ghanaians abroad do not want to come and settle home irrespective of how hard people like her try.
Dr Nanayaa Owusu-Prempeh states that a few days ago her cousin, 27 years old, fell down in the bathroom. They then called the Ghana Ambulance Service and apart from the absurd questions they were asked on the phone, they waited for about 30 minutes and the ambulance never showed up.
When they managed to get her cousin to the hospital, the staff did not care–and without checking anything to establish the state of her cousin, they were asked to take him to the morgue on the back of an unfounded claim that he was dead.
It’s a sad story but that’s the state of affairs in Ghana.
