The Krachi East Municipality in the Oti Region’s Asukawkaw clinic has insufficient facilities, thus the administration has been forced to use one room as a labor ward as well as male and female wards.
In addition to impairing the quality of healthcare service, the situation affects the privacy of patients who have been admitted to the ward, according to an Adom News visit to the region.
Although the facility’s nursing staff declined to comment on the incident, it was clear that it had an impact on local healthcare services.
Speaking with the local Assemblyman, Mark Oduro, he lamented the facility’s patient overcrowding and expressed concern about the issue.
He claims that the facility is overcrowded due to the local population, thus the government should think about renovating the clinic instead of making people through the unpleasant torture of having to drive several kilometers to the Worawora government hospital in order to receive medical care.
Mr. Oduro requested assistance from the government and the Ghana Health Service.
Nana Odami Gyamfi, the supreme chief of Akroso, bemoaned the facility’s failure to meet the population’s fundamental medical requirements owing to a shortage of beds and medical supplies.
However, he urged the Krach East assembly to address the issue quickly in order to lessen the suffering of the populace’s inability to get healthcare.
In an interview with Adom News, some patients at the institution voiced concern about the situation and pleaded with the public, non-governmental organizations, and private citizens to lend a hand with the facility’s expansion.
