COVID-19: Some staff of Tema General Hospital threaten to leave post over Covid-19

Some staff of the Tema General Hospital are threatening to leave post as management conceals information on their colleagues who have tested positive to Corinvirus.

The Tema General Hospital is one of the designated national treatment centres for the COVID-19.

According to the workers, management of the hospital is endangering their lives because they are concealing information on their colleagues who had tested positive to Covid-19.

They indicated that they were not told by management of the incident but were rather instructed to go and take the coronavirus test without any explanations.

They disclosed that they heard that a doctor at the unit tested positive, but management failed to inform them even though they encouraged them to test, after which another person tested positive.

“Due to the nature of our work we had close contact, more than half of the nurses and doctors are currently under quarantine, ”they indicated.

According to the health workers, even though management was aware that they had been exposed to the virus, they did not inform them only for them to see the pediatric unit shut down.
The workers indicated that there was a lot of tension and anxiety at the hospital as they had been deprived of the needed information which they voiced out that it would aid them during contact tracing.

They questioned why the hospital did not have a designated place for quarantining staff with suspected cases of coronavirus as it is being done at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital but rather asking them to do so at home, a situation they said could risk the lives of families and friends at homes.

Meanwhile, the pediatric unit that was shut down was disinfected on Thursday.
