The Bunkpurugu Health Center in the Bunkpurugu-Nakpanduri district of the North East region has been hit with a medicine scarcity.
Due to the scarcity, patients who visit the facility have been compelled to purchase their medications elsewhere.
Daily Guide’s Eric Kombat reported that, relatives of patients admitted to the facility had to travel from the hospital to town in search of required medications.
According to the information gathered, some patients travel as far as Nakpanduri and Nalerigu to purchase medicine.
Patients expressed their dissatisfaction with the situation and demanded that authorities intervene promptly.
“When we were admitted they asked us to buy infusion, injections, and some other medicines. I had to leave my son with somebody here and go to town to get those items for the nurses to use it on my son so you can imagine if I had to travel to Nakpanduri or Nalerigu to get it my son’s condition would have worsened.” resident Madam Konlan Minkal narrated.
She urged the Ghana Health Service and the government to send drugs to the hospital in order to improve health care delivery.
