Nurse Caught Conducting Surgery on Patient in Oyo Hospital

A nurse has been caught in the act performing surgery on a patient in an Oyo State hospital, an act that has brought about some serious consequences.

The Oyo state’s Task Force on Private Health Facilities, on Wednesday, closed a hospital in Iseyin after the nurse was found on duty carrying out surgery on a patient.

This is coming after the state government resolved to sanitise the private health sector.

According to Tribune, the task force, which got to the Agbejemate Hospital and Maternity Centre in Iseyin at about 1:00p.m, met the male nurse in theatre carrying out a hernia surgery on a patient.

The nurse, who is also the owner of the hospital, is a retired theatre nurse. He was subsequently served a notice to report at the Oyo State Ministry of Health.

Chairman of the task force, Dr Ayoola, who said visitations had also been made to hospitals in Ibadan and Oyo town, declared that the ministry daily received reports on medical negligence and deaths arising from unqualified medical practitioners in the state.
