Family drags UGMC to court over death of relative

It is just unfortunate that some patients die at the hands of these doctors and nurses who are trained to heal these patients . Sometimes you question the type of medical training that these doctors have. Many patients die because of the mistakes made by doctors and nurses yet they will not own up to their mistakes. They feel so arrogant that a patient or a relative of a patient cannot ask them simple questions about their medical conditions . They see it as a challenge to their authority. In advanced countries patients have bill of rights which empowers them to certain rights with regards to their medical conditions and so can solicit answers from their medical providers and which cannot be ignored by their providers . Some patients or their relatives seek legal actions against their providers when they have a cause to do so . Many providers end up losing their licenses to practice or even go to jail with some patients being compensated financially by the institutions that employ these providers. It is time Ghana implements similar measures to protect these patients from the negligence of these doctors and nurses who think they are gods and so cannot be questioned. Measures should be put in place to review some patients charts to verify the level of care that patients receive. Once Ghana implements these measures, the death rate in the hospitals will drop drastically. People are dying unnecessarily in our hospitals all because of the mistakes of these doctors and nurses .
