MOH Admits Communication Error


The Chief Medical officer of Liberia, Dr. Francis S. Keteh, has admitted that the Ministry of Health was in communication error for the removal of the surgery machine at the Jackson F. Doe memorial hospital in Tappita, Nimba County.

He made the disclosure via mobile phone and said, that Ministry of Health has agreed that they were in error for not communicating with citizens of Nimba County.

Liberia’s Chief Medical Officer disclosed that final meeting will be held today at 3pm base on the outcome, the surgery machine will be brought to Monrovia.

Over the weekend, citizens of Nimba County, specifically Tappita; converged at the Jackson F. Doe Memorial Referral Hospital to resist the government of Liberia from taking their surgery machine used to diagnose all human parts.

According to the report, early Friday morning, a talk show was being hosted by a local radio station in Tappita, when a citizen of Nimba county who resides in Monrovia called in and informed citizens that health authorities were on their way in the county for the Micro Machine which is used for surgery.

The report said after the called was made, citizens and concern citizens movement of Nimba County including local authorities too placed calls on the local radio informing Dr. Edward Vamyama, the Chief Administrator of the hospital to wait and should not give the machine to anyone. But the government had already dispatched a helicopter to transfer the machine to JFK for some free surgery that are expected to be carried out by surgeons from Canada.

The citizens therefore converged at the hospital conference room with an emergency meeting where Dr. Vamyama explained to the citizens about the phase two of the surgery.

Phase one of the surgery early this year was done at the Jackson F. Doe referral hospital and the surgery was focused on people involved in accident, people with water in their neck, spinal cord and back bone among others and phase two is expected to take place at the JFK hospital.

He told the citizens that due to the bad road network, the machine will be moved to Monrovia and after the surgery, the machine will be returned to the Tappita Hospital, but the citizens resisted the transportation of the machine to Monrovia. They argued that the same helicopter could be used to bring those doctors to perform the surgery since according to the government, the road is bad.

Citizens staged a peaceful demonstration demanding that their machine should not be removed from the hospital, while local authorities also mandated the hospital administrator not to allow the machine to be removed from the hospital until proper communication is written to them.

At the same time over the weekend, the Superintendent of Nimba County, David D. Cooper who is the broad chair of the hospital paid a visit at the hospital and held a meeting along with the concern citizens movement of Nimba and administration of the Jackson F. Doe hospital.

Superintendent Cooper said, during meeting that the local authorities and citizens in the county should have been informed before the machine is removed.

Also speaking during the meeting, the concern citizens movement of Nimba County co-chair, Steve Demie, listed several counts against the hospital administration, including the big Chinese light bulb that was taken away from the hospital to Monrovia for the inauguration of President Weah and did not return.

Mr. Demie disclosed that a cap motor was also given to them by their partner, Japan. It cannot be seen, including television set which cannot also be seen.

He expressed that a CT. scan was taken to an unknown direction, 150 bag of rice given to the hospital, including materials from the Ebola Treatment Unit among others were all taken away without it been accounted for.

The co-chair for the concern citizens movement stated that protest was not only against the surgery machine removal but rather all other things that have been taken away without returning at the hospital, and he is calling on the Nimba county administration to speedily intervene in the matter before the hospital remains an empty structure.
