COVID-19: Ridge Hosp. allowed us bath our infected dead relative
The family of a 49-year-old woman who died at the Ridge Hospital in Accra has accused the management of the facility of negligence after relatives were allowed access to the body of the deceased despite her COVID-19 status. According to the family of the late Adiza Mohammed, authorities at Ridge allowed them to take hold of the body and bathe it after she died without any knowledge of her COVID status. Family members who are challenging the causee of death of their relative say the hospital also failed to alert the COVID-19 taskforce to embark on contract tracing since no one in the family has been checked upon or tested for possible contraction of the virus from their late kinsman.
