Some of the patients patronising the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) are lamenting over pains they are going through as a result of the industrial action by the resident doctors at the hospital.
A patient referred to the hospital from Oyo state said he had to choose the option of a private hospital for his treatment when there was no one to attend to him. Mrs. Wasiu Amuda whose husband had an accident in Oyo state and was referred to UITH for further treatment said they became stranded before somebody directed them to a private hospital in Ilorin where her husband is currently receiving treatment.
“We came to UITH amidst tears with my husband who cannot walk as a result of the accident but unfortunately, we learnt they were on strike when we came but thank God we were referred to a private hospital where my husband is now receiving treatment,” she said.
Meanwhile, the President, Association of Resident Doctors of the hospital, Dr. Ade Faponle said during an interview that the strike was a resumption of a suspended strike after the management refused to respond to their demand.
Meanwhile, the management of the health institution has reiterated its commitment to quality health care delivery, saying the strike will soon be called off. In a statement by the Head of Information of the UITH, Mrs Olufunmilayo Omojasola, the hospital said most of the issues were not their fault and would be addressed properly.
