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.
