A Nigerian caterer identified as Omolade Adebisi Abiara took to her Instagram page to recount a sad experience she had at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LASUTH.

According to her, the hospital, irrespective of the severity of a patient's case, usually schedules months before the patient could book an appointment with a doctor.

She also gave the illustration of a woman who needed emergency attention as she suffers from a serious ailment she has been battling with for years. But it was quite appalling as the medical personnel over there asked her to come back in November to see a doctor.

Read her narration:

So I was at Lagos University teaching hospital Ikeja #lasuth yesterday after being referred from Isolo general hospital for medical attention on my daughter's ear, I got to the hsp few minutes past 6am and I was called exactly 11.30am,only for the admin to write on my referral letter that my appointment to see the doctors is November!!!! 6months from now

I was very SURPRISED I was practically begging them that at least I need to see the doctor for first aid, all I was told after my talk talk and long lamentation is that ..Its their protocol and there is nothing they can do about it..

My own case is very mild Compare to one young lady I met there, she narrated all she has been through since 10yrs and it's been from one hospital to the other, what I saw dripping from her ear is thicker than Mucus,she said aunty it is chronic..

These pple were not interested in knowing how urgent anyone's case is.. THEY ALSO GAVE HER NOVEMBER APPOINTMENT...she had to give them money for them to change the appointment to next month according to her...

Where are we going in Nigeria, What's the way forward pls? the menance in goverment hospital is now out of the world, the health care staffs in Nigeria are to safe us but they don't care anymore, in as much it doesn't involve their family member, I had my 3kids at the government hsp and I know their way, is it from insult or their carefree attitude?

Most times I calm other patients down to be gentle with them cos they are human like us and they get tired too.... But the height of it is risking our lives.... How can you tell me to go back home and come back November without seeing a doctor at all, I think it's the duty of a doctor to tell me when to come back after seeing the situation if it's mild or needs urgent care.. This is a child I had in this same hsp...

After I told few friends, they advised I go to some specialist hsp like redington, lagoon and it's likes... Hmmmmmm.. We all know what's involve,

why do I have to suffer being a citizen.. Goverment pls help us....

That LASUTH is becoming a nuisance. A friend experienced same thing recently. He was told to come back after 3 months to see a Doctor. The ailment wasn't life threatening so he waited, but guess what LASUTH did after 3 months of waiting? My friend was referred to a private clinic without any consultation.

The level of corruption and the nonchalant I-don't-care-whether-you-die attitude in government owned hospitals is just too much.
Never willing to do their job and always eager to threaten everyone with strike.

Issues like this are reasons I won't stop anyone from seeking miracles from credible faith-based institutions or agbo-jedi sellers. Although some of these men have ruined lives, it still can't be compared to the number of lives the government has ruined through the destructive healthcare delivery systems.

LASUTH is overstetched. Everybody wants to go to General hospital, sometimes I pity the doctors working there.

NB: If you can't afford private ENT clinics, get hmo and register to be seen in a private facility.Other government facilities include Military hospital yaba, Navy hospital Ojo, general hospital Lagos, General hospital Orile agege.

Blame NOT LASUTH...blame the system please. Most Nigerians do not care about decayed structure even when they read about it or when few others involved are protesting... However, by the time they are now the victim, they will be shouting injustice. We that are concerned are already aware of these collapsed structures in Naija. But if we call for protest, people like you will not come out because your prophet or alfa had told you that God is about to give you billions soon.

Re: Appointments With Doctor In LASUTH Takes Months: Lady Recounts Graphic Experienc by ifyalways(f): 11:09am On Jun 07, 2018
Get HMO that covers private hospitals.

Most if not all of those doctors,especially consultants have and run their private clinics. winkThis is the sad situation.

Your president goes to London for ear infection,so go figure.

Lolz. Sartorius? Why did you decide to go by this name?

wink

@Topic, the doctor-patient ratio in our nation is terribly poor. This is no excuse, though.

Please if you can afford it (I pray you can), go get a good consult in a private ENT clinic.

Wish your daughter - and others - quick recovery.

Half of Nigerian Doctors are now in Canada, Austrialia and Europe working for the govt that knows their worth.

The ones left behind in Nigeria are fighting with JOESHU.

There are not enough doctors to take care of all of us. Sorry madam, we are all in it together cry

many Nigerians are the most hopeless people on this planet. Expecting logic defying miracles all the time.

There are probably around 2000 doctors employed by lagos State, to serve a population of over 20 million people. That a ratio of 1 doctor to more than 10000 people. The average doctor in a Govt hospital allegedly sees 50+ patients daily.

Given these stats, how the heck do you expect to get an immediate appointment to see the overworked, overwhelmed doctor?

Nigerians don't like hard work. Tackle your Governments. Make healthcare a MASSIVE issue during elections so that politicians know they'd better focus on it. But they will not. It is easier, afterall, to praise Governors for tarring roads and then blame the doctors that are struggling under the load.

My cousin served in one of the South South States as a Medical doctor. He was there when the Governor declared free medical care for rural women and children without making any efforts to hire more doctors. Overnight, the number of patients quadrupled and guess who suffered for it?

In Nigeria, if you cannot afford private care, you owe it to yourself to be vocal in demanding for better public healthcare.

well, i guess we re all to be blamed.
health workers should be more courteous in their approach to patients, just calmly explain to them.
nut u cant really blame them, they re stretched too thin, because of the patient load, and they are understaffed.
thats why, unless its an emergency, a farther appointment date will be given to you, the clinic is booked already .
kindly go to a private hospital and get attended to on time.
we can advocate for more health workers to be employed, and adequately renumerated, cos the rate at which they re leaving Nigeria, we might just wake up one day, and discover our hospitals are virtually emptied
