She revealed that the condition worsened within a few days at the hospital but urgent attention was not paid to the baby and the baby was discharged on December 31, 2021, without the intended surgery performed nor treatment of the cannula infection which led to an abscess of the hand.

She went back to the hospital to complain about the worsening condition of the baby’s hand but management refused to hear her.

She further added that she mobilized her family members about nine of them and stormed the hospital to meet Management of the facility but the Administrator of St. Dominic Hospital, A Catholic Priest identified as Rev. Father Kenneth Abban yelled at the journalist to go out from the meeting of which the family didn’t agree but however, he rescued himself after some minutes standoff.

The meeting however ended inconclusively as management failed to admit medical negligence on their part as Rev. Fr Kenneth Abban, the administrator in Charge of St. Dominic Hospital said the injury of the baby was caused by a Juju man they sent the baby to.

According to Maafia, the condition of the boy occurred at the hospital and after a month of no treatment at the facility, invited a herbalist to assess the condition while at home after discharge.

She however said the herbalist refused to attend to the baby because he said it was beyond his capacity.

Madam Lydia Dagadu has therefore called on the Ghana Health Service, the Ministry of Health and government to intervene in her case to seek justice for her baby as she would find it difficult to explain what happened to her child in future.
