A surgery theater at the Effia-Nkwanta regional hospital in Takoradi in Ghana has caved in during a live surgical operation. The development caused a temporary hold up on the ongoing operation. Medical officers who were operating on the patient were left distraught by the unfortunate accident.
Meanwhile, the 31-year-old pregnant woman died due to the unavailability of blood transfusion equipment or ‘giving set’ at the hospital. The giving set is a typical administration set, including tubing, burette, drip chamber and roller clamp installed in hospitals for blood transfusions. She reportedly died while being transported to a different facility, upon referral.
