A sick man had to use a standing fan for his survival after the oxygen in a hospital in Benue state got finished.
The staff of Benue State Teaching Service Board identified as Terda Shiejir, was placed on admission in the Accident And Emergency (A&E) ward of the Benue State University Teaching Hospital.
The man had to improvise after the hospital officials reportedly revealed that they ran out of oxygen yesterday as they said that they were awaiting for new supplies from Abuja.
Read the report shared by Ukan Kurugh:
“This is Terdoo Shiejir a staff of Benue State Teaching Service Board on admission in the Accident And Emergency (A&E) ward of the Benue State University Teaching Hospital.
“He is badly in need of oxygen right now but since yesterday the one he was on (oxygen) finished, the hospital authority said they have ran out of oxygen and their supplier in Abuja has not brought in new supplies.
“The family asked where they can get oxygen to buy for him,but they were rather told its from Abuja only and can’t be gotten in town here.
“As you can see from the pictures, there is a fan blowing him. These are the type of services we get in Nigeria hospitals but funny enough nobody will be held or queried even.
“Why can’t we have an oxygen bank in a state like Benue? We need to do more to save lives in our hospitals else more people will die from simple solutions.”
