Continuous Gunshots at Pantang Hospital, nurses flee for their lives

Hardly a day passes without gunshots being heard around the

Pantang Hospital area. This is forcing the nurses to run for their dear lives.

The Eastern wing of the hospital housing the nurses is where

the problem is, our reporters gather.

An eye witness says land guards terrorizing the residents have extended

their unsanctioned behavior to the hospital and vented

their spleen on staff and everyone around.

On Monday, June 28, the nurses and other staff of the hospital boycotted

their duties for fear of a second wave of attack by the land guards.

A resident at Pantang [name withheld] said last week land guards

chased another potential landlord who sought refuge at the hospital.

He had visited the area to check up on his workers who were

working on his plot of land at the time.

Confirming the incident to 3FM, a Senior Physician Assistant and

representative of the Ghana Physician Association at Pantang Hospital

and one of the leaders of the Pantang Nurses Association,

Nicholas Annor, said: “We are fleeing for our lives. We are fleeing

from danger. There have been incidents of gunshots and a series of

that at the OPD. Had this hit anybody we would have recorded

a death case. We came here to work not to get into this mess.

This is a danger to our nurses.”

He continued: “Sometimes the guys come on motor bikes.

There are nurses who come in the afternoon and when they close

and they are going home they come across guys who ask them

to surrender their phones and bags. Some have knife wounds and

the two nurses training colleges have their rooms bugled.”

A number of petitions have been sent to the Chief of Staff and the

Ministry of Interior but no action has been taken yet.
