The Wa Regional Hospital in the Upper West Regional Capital has been hit with a massive shortage of beds, particularly in the Children’s ward.
The situation has culminated in children having to receive treatment on the bare floor for some time now.
This website is reliably informed that the situation has persisted for some time now with officials of the Ghana Health Service looking on unperturbed.
Investigations by BestNewsGH.com indicate that the issue has been reported to the Management of the biggest hospital in the region who themselves look helpless as the situation worsens by the day.
A senior nursing officer who spoke to this website on strict condition of anonymity said the situation has been reported to the regional health authorities who have assured steps will be taken to address the matter, but to no avail.
‘’We have done our part by reporting the sorry state of the children’s ward to the appropriate quarters but they have done nothing about it. It is promises every day and yet the situation deteriorates on each passing day. Nobody has even come here to see things for themselves’’ the source opined.
Parents who take their wards to the hospital for treatment have been forced to send along their own mattresses and mats from home.
