Lagos State Government Shuts Down Private Hospital In Ago-Okota

 

A private hospital located in Ago-Okota, Oshodi-Isolo Local Government of Lagos state, has been closed by the Lagos state government because the hospital was obtaining and administering unscreened and unlabelled blood to unsuspecting patients.

Executive Secretary, Lagos State Blood Transfusion Service (LSBTS), Dr. Bodunrin Osikomaiya, made this known yesterday in a statement signed by the director, Public Affairs, Ministry of Health.

Osikomaiya said the LSBTS in collaboration with the state Health Facilities Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA) sealed off the facility following a tip-off from a concerned citizen.

She added that the facility was shut for contravening the blood transfusion service law and for unethical and unprofessional medical practice as well as putting the lives of unsuspecting citizens at risk.
