Dr slumps on duty in Kogi Hospital


A doctor with the Paediatric Unit of Kogi State Specialist Hospital, Lokoja, Dr. Amos Ojo on Thursday slumped while on duty at the hospital.

The doctor was said to be on ward round at noon when he suddenly collapsed due to exhaustion from too much workload and was rushed to the Accident and Emergency Ward of the hospital for resuscitation.

This is just as another doctor from the Paediatric Unit is equally said to be down and currently being attended to in his house.

Daily Trust learnt from health workers that pressure of work had been much on doctors following the mass exit of physicians from the hospital, as about 27 doctors were said to have left the hospital in recent time on alleged account of poor welfare.
