Kano Government shuts down hospital over death cases


The Kano State Government has shut down a private health facility in the state over cases of two deaths recorded in the hospital within the last six months.

According to Daily Trust, the health facility, Green-Olives Hospital, situated at Sabon Titi, Tal’udu Gadon Kaya in Gwale Local Government Area was shut down by the Private Health Institutions Management Agency (PHIMA) over a report received from a committee of citizens over the death of two patients at the facility.

The Executive Secretary of PHIMA, Dr Usman Tijjani Aliyu, who announced the closure of the facility in a statement, said the agency investigated the cases thoroughly which revealed a lot of misconduct and mismanagement in terms of services rendered to patients in the facility.

According to the statement, “The surgeon serves as the Anaesthetic nurse, perioperative nurse and assistant surgeon as well, hence he alone does the four jobs during surgery, and this is grossly unethical by all standards.
