Tragic Loss of University of Ghana Law Student Raises Questions About Medical Mishap at Ewim Polyclinic

Tragedy struck the University of Ghana as a second-year Law student, identified as Nana Obeng Owusu, lost his life due to a medical mishap at the Ewim Polyclinic in the Cape Coast metropolis of the Central Region of Ghana. The unfortunate incident occurred when Nana Obeng Owusu, who suffered from asthma, sought medical assistance at the clinic.

On that fateful day, Nana Obeng Owusu felt unwell and was swiftly taken to the Ewim Polyclinic. However, it was reported that the staff at the clinic appeared unapproachable and raised their voices towards the young student, leaving him distressed. According to his mother, Nana Obeng Owusu was not satisfied with the treatment provided by a nurse named Micheal at the Ewim Polyclinic.

Despite the apparent discomfort and dissatisfaction with the service received, Nana Obeng Owusu was given a prescription to be filled at a nearby pharmacy. His mother promptly went to procure the prescribed medication, but upon her return, she was met with the devastating news of her son’s passing.

In a state of shock and despair, she questioned Micheal, the nurse who had administered the injection to her son. Micheal appeared visibly nervous and admitted to having injected Nana Obeng Owusu. Desperate for assistance, the grieving mother sought help, but no one was available to offer support during this harrowing moment.

Adding to the distress, Nana Obeng Owusu’s mother expressed deep concern as her son’s body was reportedly embalmed and deposited at the Cape Coast hospital without her consent. She found this to be deeply troubling, as it had been done without her knowledge or agreement.

It is worth noting that attempts to investigate the matter were met with resistance, as the clinic’s Administrator and a staff member declined to cooperate with the Ghana News Agency. The mother of the deceased is now calling upon the government and relevant security agencies to thoroughly examine the circumstances surrounding her son’s tragic death. She believes there may be underlying issues or negligence on the part of the polyclinic that contributed to her son’s demise.

The loss of Nana Obeng Owusu is a somber and distressing event, especially for the Law School at the University of Ghana. Further details regarding the arrangements in the wake of his untimely passing will be communicated to the general public. This incident highlights the importance of patient safety and calls for a thorough and impartial investigation to ascertain the facts surrounding this unfortunate incident.
