Mahama Speaks On 'No-Bed Syndrome'

Former President John Dramani Mahama has described as sad the situation where patients lose their lives over no beds in the various hospitals in the country.

The No bed syndrome has become one of the surging challenges in healthcare facilities in the country. A recent case involves a 70-year-old man, Anthony Opoku Acheampon, who lost his life at the LEKMA hospital after six other hospitals refused to admit him due to lack of beds.

The Speaker of Parliament speaking to the issue requested investigation to be conducted into the incident to discourage future similar occurrence

Commenting on this development in a tweet, Mr Mahama said: “Very sad development. There are some who said ‘we don’t eat roads! We don't eat hospitals...we must expand access to health facilities across the country.
