The hospital spoke against the backdrop of the allegation levelled against it by the president of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN), Prof Cyril Usifo, that the DRF scheme in the hospital is in shambles.

The hospital insisted that the procurement of drugs in the hospital followed guidelines as recommended in the National Drug Policy.

It stated that the DRF committee of the hospital was responsible for all the processes involved in the procurement of drugs.

A statement from the hospital reads in part: “Despite the attempted distractions, the management of the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, Lagos, is committed to the provision of top-class and affordable healthcare services to Nigerians.”
