- A Nigerian journalist is currently mourning the loss of his friend due a hospital's inadequacy
- According to him, the hospital could not provide oxygen to save a life
- He took to Facebook to share the sad news
Infrastructures like hospitals in Nigeria have been known to provide poor services, most of which are due to lack of good facilities and equipment. This is the main reason most people travel out to get medical aid.
While some people are lucky to afford these treatments, others are not. A Nigerian journalist identified as Sam Omatseye has taken to social media to narrate how he lost someone dear to him due to lack of medical aid.
In his words, "A deep, dear loss - In Touch, The Nation newspaper, 14/05/2018 I lost someone dear recently and it happened because the hospital nearby did not have oxygen. This is a missionary hospital. When the fellow was rushed there in a state of emergency, he was told they could do nothing and they should take him to the General hospital. Before his folks took him through the messy traffic of Lagos from Akowonjo area, he was designated BID – brought in dead.
I thought how sad. How could any hospital be allowed to operate that did not have the basic life-saving facility? Of course, if someone in the well-heeled class had such emergency, he would be flown to London or Germany or Israel on a plane outfitted with oxygen equipment. The story of this fellow who died is the story between Lazarus and the rich man. The Lazarus always loose "

This would not be the first time lives are being lost due to lack of immediate medical treatments, most of which are basic requirements that should be present in hospitals.
It is sad to see yet another unfortunate person loosing his life due to this rot that has eaten deep and has become a norm in the country today.
