Horror stories from the Ridge Hospital are becoming something of a norm which is really scary considering they are one of the biggest medical institutions in the country.
A few weeks ago a huge story about the Ridge Hospital went viral when a Ghanaian man revealed how his wife died at the hospital due to a misdiagnosis.
Fast forward a few weeks and a Ghanaian lady is now telling another story of medical malpractice occurring at the hospital.
According to the lady, Mary Mensah, she underwent a C-section at the Hospital and had a towel left within her body.
Speaking to Captain Smart on Angel Fm, the lady revealed that after the surgery, a towel was left in her body and for 9 months it stayed in her body.
She said after the surgery as the months went by, she started vomiting violently at different times with the vomit looking quite green.
She returned to the hospital a couple of times but they could not treat her.
It was at a different hospital that an x-ray showed a foreign object in her tummy and another surgery was needed to remove it.
It was then that it was detected that the object was a huge towel lying in her which had been leftover from her caesarean.
Her story mirrors that of an elderly lady who suffered something similar from a different hospital – she had a surgical knife left in her following an operation!
Listen to this lady narrate her sad story below…
