Mr. Valentine Anekwe, the husband of the Chisom, the woman who died while giving birth to her third child at the Magodo Specialist Hospital has refuted claims made by the hospital that they were not responsible for his wife’s death.
In a statement sent to Linda Ikeji’s Blog, the hospital management said that Chisom developed hypertension and complications during her pregnancy, which led to her death.
The hospital explained that at the course of Chisom’s pregnancy, she was offered admission to the hospital, but she declined and left for home, only to return days later due to a headache and the inability to sleep.
The hospital also said she stopped taking her drugs against medical advice.
In a report sent to LIB, Mr. Valentine Anekwe debunked the hospital’s statement of the incidence.
According to Mr. Valentine, his wife didn’t reject hospital admission. He also refuted claims that his wife stopped taking her drugs.
Hi LIB, I just want to clarify some things regarding the statement from Magodo Specialist Hospital, my wife did not decline admission on Wednesday night. She was asked to deposit 60,000naira before she can be admitted and she told them she’s not with any money or her card at that moment but the hospital insisted she has to make that deposit that was why she came back to the house that Wednesday night.
Less than 7mins Dr. Olamijulo confirmed that my baby is no more, a CS form was given to me to sign that he wants to do CS to get my dead baby out and I signed immediately. I was told to deposit 300,000 for CS but before then I wanted to move my wife to another hospital which Dr. Olamijulo convinced me not to that I will have logistics problem there because of the early hour just because of the 300,000 he wanted to collect from me.
We took my wife to theater for CS, Dr. Olamijulo told me to go to lab downstairs and donate blood that my wife will need the blood immediately after the CS but by the time I came back from lab my wife was not in the theater she was in labor room Dr. Olamijulo had to induce her without any consent from me, then I rushed to his office and asked him why didn’t he do the CS?
He said to me, Mr. Anekwe he realized that CS will cost me more that he’s not like other doctors who’s after money ( when I was told to deposit 300,000 I didn’t say a word like the money is big or something) that if my wife was in England the treatment she’s getting here is what she will get in England.
He was able to convince me that my wife will be fine that I should stop disturbing myself. He never stops telling my wife about his experience in England that was why she trusted him so much.
I was in the hospital on Saturday night when drugs was giving to my wife and she took the drugs while the nurse was there and Dr. Olamijulo issued a medical report after three days and how come he didn’t mention that my wife didn’t take her drugs and I was in the hospital early hour on Sunday morning but he didn’t mention it at all.
They are just telling a lot of lies.
