Six nurses at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, Ogun State are under intense criticism from the family members of a 40-year-old woman, Mrs. Ajarat Muritala, who went missing on October 12 while on admission at the hospital.
Punch reports that about six nurses were with the woman and other patients in the ward before she was discovered missing.
It said Mrs. Ajarat, a mother of four was receiving treatment on a heart related disease at the OOUTH, and had gone into a coma on October 11.
The report says that the patient whose husband has multiple wives later went missing after regaining consciousness.
“I went into the ward around 12pm to check her but she was not on her sick bed. There were about six nurses in that ward. They told me to check her in the toilet.
“My relatives outside joined me and we searched everywhere but we couldn’t find her. We rushed to the gate to inform the security men and they said they didn’t see any patient. Meanwhile, the nurses didn’t help us to search for her until they handed over to their colleagues on afternoon duty,” the missing woman’s husband told the paper.
