asthmatic patient’s death
The family of 31-year-old Ifeyinwa Chikezie has been thrown into mourning after she died at the Elem Hospital, Festac Town, Lagos, due to alleged wrong administration of injection. It was gathered that Ifeyinwa was an asthmatic patient, whose medical record was with the hospital. It was learnt that on November 10, 2018, the mother of two had gone to the hospital in company with her husband, Emeka Chikezie, because she was not responding well to the use of her inhaler. The doctor, who attended to her, allegedly administered the injection in a wrong way despite a plea by her husband for another doctor, who knew her medical history. Ifeyinwa was said to have collapsed and died within 15 minutes of being injected. Emeka said the death of his wife was as a result of the wrong administration of an injection by the doctor, who was not familiar with her medical history. He stated, “My wife worked with the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency in Surulere and Emel Hospital is her primary hospital. Her Health Maintenance Organisation covers everything. She was asthmatic and she often visited the hospital for treatment. We have been using this hospital for about five years
