A hospital was shut down in Oyo state after a nurse was caught conducting an operation on a patient. The nurse was caught in a private hospital in Iseyin town – by the Task force on Private Health facilities set up by Oyo State government.
While briefing journalists, the team declared that they got to the Agbejemate Hospital and Maternity Centre in Iseyin at about 1:00p.m and met the male nurse in theatre carrying out a hernia surgery on a patient on Wednesday.
It however noted that the hospital has been closed since then.
It was learnt that the nurse, who is also the owner of the hospital, was a retired theatre nurse. He was subsequently served a notice to report at the Oyo State Ministry of Health.
The task force, which visited other five health facilities in the town, also closed four other hospitals for offences ranging from non-registration of the premises, unhygienic hospital environment and failure to have qualified medical staff on ground.
