Welcome to University Teaching Hospital

Is this the way to welcome patients?

To appreciate the extent of decline at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH), you need to be admitted there or have a loved one in that institution.

The condition are pathetic. Patients lie on the floor to wait for their turn to be attended.

The filter section is worse. Health staff are few compared to the volume of patients. Nurses are heard complaining of not having basic protective clothing to enable them attend to patients.

Yet, this is the biggest referral hospital in the country.
