UCH Ibadan Responds To Alleged Expired Vaccine Administration by antagonist: 7:14am On Jul 18, 2018
One Mr. Ore Afolayan has accused the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Oyo State, of administering an expired and fake vaccine to his son on July 11, 2018.

Tweeting @TheOreAfolayan, he said, “I got to the clinic late. I was the last in the queue and I held my son down for a shot of Penta vaccine. When I looked at the bottle, I wanted to ask the nurse why the vaccine was so small, but I guessed that, since they had used it for other kids, it was the right dosage for them. But I realised that the expiry date on the bottle had since passed (June 18).

“I was shocked. When I asked why, the nurses said it was what they had been using. I showed her where the expiry date was boldly written because she kept saying it was the date of production.”

The UCH authorities later responded to Afolayan’s tweet via the hospital’s official Twitter handle, describing his allegation as false. UCH said, “The allegation of administration of expired Penta vaccine is false and a detail surrounding this matter is being investigated by all stakeholders.”

It would be recalled that one Omolade Adebisi Abiara, also took her grouse with the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital to Instagram on June 14, 2018 narrating how her eight-year-old daughter, whom she took to see an ENT specialist, was given a six-month appointment without a first aid or allowing her to see a doctor.

She wrote on her Instagram page that she reached LASUTH at 6am on Wednesday, 6th of June, but her daughter’s name was only called at 11.30 am and then it was only for them to be told by the “Admin” that they would have to come back in six months’ time.

She added that the “admin” told her that it was “standard practice” in the tertiary hospital to give patients appointments without seeing a doctor.

“I got a referral from Isolo General Hospital because they said they don’t have an ENT specialist there. The admin woman insulted me, saying that was their protocol at LASUTH, she didn’t even care about the ailment of my daughter.

“It was after I created a scene that she now changed it to next month. I have everything on my referral note, they cancelled it to change it to next month. Other people with critical cases were also told to come back in six months time. My issue with them was that I should at least see the doctor who should be in the best position to tell me when to come back after administering first aid.

“You can’t expect my daughter’s dripping hear to be like that for the next six months,” she said.

Another patient, also with a serious ear infection, who simply gave her name as Temitope, said she suffered a similar fate at LASUTH the same day Mrs. Abiara took her daughter to the hospital.

Temitope claimed that she was also given an appointment without seeing a doctor.

In his reaction, the Chief Medical Director, LASUTH, Prof. Adewale Oke, frowned at patients taking to the social media to express their grievances about how they were treated at the hospital.

“The social media will always blow issues out of proportion, my numbers are on notice boards across the hospitals, patients can always reach me for their complaints,” he said.

Oke said the matter was under investigation and he promised to let the public know the outcome when it is concluded. All efforts to, however, to get an update on the incidence proved abortive as at press time.

It's because what they really want is sympathy and popularity, not solutions, so they'll always go to the social media instead of following the proper channels for complaints.

With your thinking you also have no business been on nairaland
Why should an administrator be worried more about use of social media to vent and not the substance of the allegation

Person wey hear u nw go think say u jump down from heavenly Jerusalem. "Channel of communication huh?"...I lost hope in Nigeria long time ago seeing new levels of hypocrisy and wickedness we practice.

How many times have you call commissioner of police and he picks or it goes through? Have you go to servicom and lay complain b4? Have you ever petition a governor or a commissioner b4. If u hv done any of these, you will not open your mouth and be talking gibberish.


I went to hospital wen I was still in school, shivering...met one young doctor for diagnosis. D idiot told me dt it was only malaria, that I should should stop shivering as if I was abt passing out. He regretted his foolishness dt day. D annoying part was dt he had not done d diagnosis...jst assumed it was malaria

There is nothing wrong coming to the social media rather it will even help so that the rot and abnormalities will be exposed and further treated by the appropriate authority. Believe you me, if this mam had gone to report to the hospital admin, nothing will happen. Also bringing it also to social media will help enlighten the public to be conscious of their healthcare , ask questions, its your health and your life, dont be shy to speak up.
What the hosp.admin should focused first is if the allegation is true and how curb, prevent reoccurence and punish the offenders. Nigeria is not yet a developed country where reporting to hosp.admin will make any difference, we have SERVICOM in these hospitals but they are not effective as expected. Even when youlay a complain the protocols will even demoralise you. This is why social media is very important and can be the last hope of a common man

My aunt had cancer. The consultant in UCH who was attending to her sold her expired chemotherapy.

She wasn't aware. Luckily one of my cousins, a pharmacist asked her to snap the packet of the chemo to see which type she was being given.

It was from the picture that the pharmacist realized that the chemo was already expired.

#sigh.

Nigeria is a dead country.

How many people will call the Medical Director in a day? Then, it means those numbers are not being answered by the CMD but by those staff.

Early 2017, a friend advised me to consult the hospital for optical issue to compare diagnosis with my private hospitals. I was there 7 am at GOPD after spending hours, I met one of the GOPD doctors who now directed me to Optical section. Around 3 pm, it was not my turn. I withdrew my paper & left. The following day I came back to the optical dept. I met the first doctor who sent me to lab for a test within optical unit. I was almost got blinded. There were so many nurses there, the one that attended to me was very unprofessional. The event created a scene. Two doctors & some nurses calmed me down. I collected from my paper from the nurse in charge of registration & threatened to report to Medical Director.

On my way to the Medical Director office, somebody told me I am just wasting my time. I just tore the LASUTH registration card & vow never to return again.
