Woman's womb is removed and bladder damaged as she goes to deliver in a private hospital

A pastor has been dealt a very bad blood on the Private health system in the country. He got a biter sweet news.

Punch gathered that not only did the hospital help his 42 year old wife deliver  a baby,they also removed her womb and damaged her bladder. Chinedu Rockson a pastor with a Pentecostal ministry accused the management of Ilogbo Central Hospital in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos State of removing his wife’s womb and damaging her bladder during childbirth.

 He accused the hospital of detaining his wife pending the payment of N50,000, adding that efforts to clear the bill had been frustrated by the hospital.

It was gathered that  Chinedu’s wife, Chinansa, was referred to the hospital on August 26, 2016, after she could not be delivered of the baby at the hospital where she had her antenatal care.

The hospital reportedly commenced a caesarean section on the 42-year-old after her husband signed some documents. Unfortunately some hours into the operation, complications set in so he was called into the theatre to sign another document, adding that nobody told him it was for the removal of his wife’s womb. 

According to him N200, 000 was charged for the operation and they negotiated N150,000 of which the pastor paid a deposit of N30,000 and they started the operation.

After some time, they brought out his wife from the theatre with a pipe attached to her bladder.After initial worrying of why the pipe had not been removed, they were called to clear the balance of the bill

After payment,PUNCH Metro gathered that a sister-in-law, who visited the victim at the hospital, asked the management why the pipe had yet to be removed.The hospital eventually opened up and confessed to emoving Chinansa’s womb and that her bladder was damaged in the process. 

And that  she cannot control her urine without the pipe.

The pastor lamented that  his wife’s medical condition had worsened, adding that he could neither afford the hospital bill nor take her back home in her present condition.

It was learnt that the couple, who are indigenes of Anambra State, married in 2002 and had four children, including the newborn baby.
Lawyer to the Rockson family, Chris Ogbedeneto, in a petition to the state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, called for an investigation into the case.

 The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said she would get back to Punch  correspondent on the case, but no word from her yet.
