The Lagos State House of Assembly, through its Committee on Health Services, Tuesday ordered the closure of the blood bank section of Gbagada General Hospital after discovering some unethical procedures during an inspection exercise of the hospital.

Chairman of the Committee, Segun Olulade, who lamented the unhealthy situation at the blood bank unit, ordered that it be sealed off immediately. The committee was accompanied by the Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFEMAA).

The HEFEMAA team leader and Executive Secretary, Dr. Mabel Adjekughele observed that the blood bank was in a bad state, with screened and unscreened blood not separated.

The committee also visited the Cardiac and Renal Centre also located in Gbagada General Hospital. Director of the Centre, Prof. Babatunde Olabode Green told the committee that some of the acquired world-class medical equipments at the centre are not functioning, either due to improper installations or poor quality of installation materials. Prof. Green also blamed power supply for the failure to run the facility to its full capacity.

In his response, Olulade stated that the committee will summon the contractors that handled the Cardiac and Renal Centre project; Ministry of Health officials, Public-Private Partnership, PPP, and all necessary Agencies to investigate the poor state of the Centre.
