Pregnant Woman Dies Because Her Husband Could Deposit #20,000


A pregnant woman lost her life in Port-Harcourt last week after doctors refused to attend to her until her husband must have paid a deposit of N20,000.
PM News reports that on November 25th 2012, a 34 year old woman, Ijeoma Umumadumere, was rushed to the Garrison Clinic in Port Harcourt when she complained of a sudden stomach pain and headache, while cooking. She was five-months pregnant.....
At the hospital, doctors insisted her husband must pay N20,000 before she was treated. However, he had only N5,000 on him and used it to offset registration and other costs. But the doctors and nurses would not attend to his wife because he didn’t pay the N20,000 that was being demanded as a precondition for treatment. When he realised the doctors were not going to attend to his wife, he took her to another hospital but sadly, it was too late and she died.
  If you were the husband what will be your reaction?
