Lagos Hospital Removes Woman's Womb, Husband Upset!

Chinedu Rockson is accusing the management of Ilogbo Central Hospital, Ajangbadi, of removing his wife, Chinansa's womb, damaging her bladder during childbirth and detaining her over the payment of N50,000, adding that efforts to clear the bill had been frustrated by the hospital.

Chinansa, 42, had reportedly been referred to the hospital on August 26, 2016, after she could not be delivered of the baby at the hospital where she had her antenatal care. The hospital reportedly commenced a caesarean section on the mother-of-4, after her husband signed some documents to perfect the terms.

Chinedu explained that some hours into the operation, he was called into the theatre to sign another document, adding that nobody told him it was for the removal of his wife’s womb.

He said: “After some time, they brought out my wife from the theatre with a pipe attached to her bladder. Few days afterwards, they didn’t remove the pipe. I paid the balance of N50,000, but they said they would keep her for the two weeks that the cheque would be ready to be cashed.”

A sister-in-law, who visited the hospital, asked the management why the pipe had yet to be removed. The hospital was said to have opened up that Chinansa’s womb had been removed and her bladder damaged, and she cannot control her urine without the pipe.

Chinedu lamented that his wife’s medical condition had worsened, adding that he could neither afford the hospital bill nor take her back home in her present condition. Lawyer to the family, Chris Ogbedeneto, in a petition to the state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, called for an investigation into the case.

A director at the hospital, Dr Femi Obileyi, however, said: "Chinansa had been mismanaged ab initio. She burst her womb in the first hospital where she registered. They pressed her womb to force the baby out and that action ruptured the womb. We can’t imagine that after saving her life, the family will turn around to fight us."
