Mjbaba & navyboy,

I dnt disagree with u. His friends and family are just very upset. What else would you want them to say?

I think the moral of the story here is how do we improve the state of healthcare and welfare of healthworkers in this country so that when things like this happen again, the healthcarers can be held fully accountable.

You are spot on about them not moving him elsewhere, though.

Mjbaba, i concur with u. Since he wasnt given da needed treatment, why wasnt he moved by his loved ones? Guess they av questions to answer too.

There is no evidence to jump to this conclusion. Logically, with the calibre of friends, wellwishers and associates who were around him, if they felt he wasnt getting the best attention he could get, they would have arranged for his transfer to another hospital.

Let us not start another baseless arguement here

Im only paraphrasing what Seyi Law said on the news.

As for the autopsy report, a Dr

(name witheld ) on the ward he was admitted to, gave that as his 'provisional' conclusion. At the time he gave it, no autopsy had been carried out, he just drew that conclusion from what he knew.

He's not a pathologist so dont take it too seriously.

But its obvious this man died from respiratory failure; either from cerebral trauma and raised intracranial pressure , intra-thoracic bleeding or just plain exsanguination. (loss of blood volume), either way he didnt have to die. 

Let's wait for the medical examiner's conclusion, if it ever sees the light of day.

Maybe you may want to speak to Dagrin's manager and family, should they decide to sue.

FROM MY OWN EXPERIENCE WHILE AT LUTH/CMUL, LUTH WILL NOT MAKE ANY OFFICIAL STAEMENT UNLESS FORCED TO.

So dont expect one.

I just heard Seyi Law on Stv news say ''he bled for several days'' without any definitive treatment.

If not for the protection of strike, those guys at luth should be in a world trouble.

Intracranial bleeding and chest fractures are easily controlled injuries. This man should have had emergency surgery immediately but was allowed to bleed slowly to death.

Provisional cause of death : Respiratory Failure secondary to intracranial injury and multiple trauma to the chest. An unecessary and avoidable death. . .sad.
