Doctor suspended over negligence in Kano

The Executive Secretary of the Kano State Hospitals Management Board, Dr Mansur Nagoda has approved the immediate suspension of a medical officer at the Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Teaching Hospital over multiple complaints of negligence

Dr Nagoda alleged that the suspended doctor left the facility without informing any officer or the hospital management.

He explained that several calls were placed to the suspended medic, but she kept responding to be within premises without being in the doctors’ quarters and never showed up till the morning, thereby leaving a dialysis patient in a frightened state.

The Executive Secretary further highlighted that the oath taken by doctors to protect lives should be their first point of call in operating within the system and urged everyone to sit up.

He advised doctors to make proper shift arrangements with their colleagues if there is any need for them to be absent.

Nagoda added that the suspension will remain in effect pending the outcome of the investigation while reaffirming the board’s commitment to ensuring accountability and professionalism among healthcare workers.
