Date Posted: 28/Oct/2015   Deadline: 28/Oct/2015


Two female nurses and two security guards at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital have been recommended for sack over the controversial death of a female student of the University of Port Harcourt.



The four workers were on duty when the 200-level student of the Department of Theater and Film Studies was rushed to the UPTH but was denied bed space. She later died due to lack of medical attention.



The two nurses and the two security guards were indicted by a panel that was set up by the Management of the UPTH to investigate the death of the student, which sparked violent protest by UNIPORT students, leading to the disruption of activities at the UPTH.



Chief Medical Director of the UPTH, Professor Aaron Ojule announced the findings of the panel while briefing newsmen.



Professor Ojule said the affected members of staff flouted established rules and protocol of the hospital, adding that they would be placed on three months suspension without pay, pending a final decision by the Federal Ministry of Health.



After thorough consideration of the Panel’s Report, the Management of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital has called for the termination of the appointment of the two nurses”, he said.



The UPTH Management also called on the Management of University of Port Harcourt to also investigate and punish those involved in the protest over the death of the female student.



The Chief Medical Director alleged that UPTH properties were destroyed and stolen during the demonstration.
