“He did not die at the hospital, but at the UCH”- Commissioner react to alleged clams of Fresh FM presenter’s death
Oyo state commissioner for Health Azeez Adeduntan has reacted to blames many residents of the state and fans of Fresh FM presenter who died on the new year for the inability of Adeoyo hospital to admit for treatment when he was brought to the hospital.
Mr. Adeduntan, on Tuesday, said the death Femi Oluwajobi, should not be blamed on the inability of Adeoyo State Hospital to admit him for treatment when he was brought to the hospital.
It could be recalled that Oluwajobi died after he was hit by a driver on the night of December 31, 2017.
He was taken to the Adeoyo hospital before he was transferred to the University College Hospital, Ibadan, where he was confirmed dead. Since his death, the public has castigated the state government for not funding the hospital.
The commissioner, however, said the criticism was unfair on the government and the management of the hospital, noting that Oluwajobi was brought in with no chance of survival, having been taken elsewhere before.
According to him,“ We did our best in the hospital. This man came to the hospital with Glasgow Coma Scale, which shows that the man has a chance to live or die; he had five over 15.
“He came in brain dead. Instead of blaming the driver that knocked him down around 12 midnight on New Year ’ s Eve, you are now blaming the caregivers that did their best.
“He did not die at the hospital, but at the UCH. There is no perfect world, even in the US.”
