Woman Dies In Magodo Specialist Hospital After Birthing Dead Baby Due To Docs Negligence

Oh Jesus!!.....The story just broke me and annoyed me...The Hospital needs to respond to this ASAP....



''Hi Stella, my name is Ganiyu Fashola Vice President Administration, LEAP Africa Alumni Association. Sometime in April one of our members was murdered in the hands of a doctor, We are seeking justice... This is her story below.. Kindly partner with us in this move.


This is Chisom Anekwe (nee Okereke), a young, vivacious, graceful, kind-hearted and intelligent woman who had devoted her life to helping indigent kids and giving their lives a meaning. She’s an alumna of LEAP Africa.

Two weeks ago, precisely April 30th 2017, Chisom died under questionable circumstances at Magodo Specialist Hospital while trying to birth her third offspring. We believe strongly that the authorities need to ensure that lives are taken sacred in hospitals like Magodo Specialist Hospital where such avoidable deaths are recorded.

Chisom was admitted in the hospital four days before she got into labour. She already had two daughters birthed in the same hospital and was there to birth her third child, a son. While at the hospital, no one attended to her when she needed the help to be delivered of the long awaited baby. She was left for hours in labour. This happened until her husband created a scene, which eventually caused the doctors to go to her ward and on inspection they found out that the baby had struggled and died.

The husband at this point requested for a CS which he paid for and even signed the consent form presented by the hospital. He was then tricked out of the room to go prepare for blood transfusion and on getting back, he found out that the doctors had induced the wife and delivered the dead baby without operation not minding that the CS procedure had been paid for. This was also without his consent.

During the process of delivering the baby, the placenta got ruptured and the doctors left her like that, no further attendance still. Shortly after, the husband noticed she was swelling up in her stomach area and called the attention of the doctors who said they were getting ready for a surgery, a preparation that took longer than usual.

After waiting in vain for the surgical team, the frustrated husband went furiously to the reception to demand why they were wasting time only to discover the doctor had sneaked out of the hospital under funny pretences. At this point he got other hospital staff to wheel her out of the hospital and in that process Chisom died!

This is the story of most young women who die while giving birth as a result of the callousness, ignorance and carelessness of inexperienced doctors.
In this era, we shouldn't be talking about Child and Maternal Mortality especially when it can be avoided. This could have been avoided but it wasn't and now Chisom Jane Anekwe is a victim and has been added to the statistics.

We demand;

1. That Magodo Specialist Hospital, Shangisha, Lagos, be investigated for their actions and the subsequent death of Chisom.

2. That both the Nigerian Medical Association NMA and the Medical and Dentist Council of Nigeria, MDCN ensure that supposed Specialist Hospitals who claim to have a resident Gynecologist are verified.

3. That there be justice for Chisom!''

RIP beautiful one. Most doctors and nurses are very callous and unprofessional.
I had a baby in at about same time but lost him.
I never missed any ante natal appointment. None of the so called experienced professionals noticed something was amiss.
I complained each time I went to see the gynae,but they always dismissed my concerns.

This is very sad

R.I.P Chisom, I hope this case will not be swept under the carpet and the doctor will be lose his licence. Most Nigerian doctors are evil, they are so arrogant and careless, that is how one female doctor in uniben health centre goes about prescribing drugs to patients without checking to know if the patient reacts to the drugs, she has done it to two people I know, I only hope that she doesn't kill someone due to her nonchalant and negligent attitude.

She died and the baby died too?😫😫😫😫😫

Oh no!
No woman should die during delivery due to negligence😫

Her life was just cut short. Who's going to take care of her girls? She was beautiful. In nigeria, the doctors and nurses who are meant to be care givers are actually devils incarnate. They are so mean, may her soul rest in peace. The family should organise people and burn that hospital down, hunt the doctor and kill him.

See her angelic smile, I refuse to say RIP to you dear beautiful Chisom.

I can only say Return If Possible.!

Some medical personnel give room for devil to use them. That was how my niece almost lost her/baby life in one Mother and Child Hospital...
They abandoned her all the while in labor she was pleading with them to come and check her. The nurse was busy threatening her that if she is not careful na CS she go end up with. Who threatens a woman in labor if not a she-devil?
Seeing her baby have crowned, she (nurse) commanded her to walk to the delivery room unaided holding the drip attached to her.
As she was walking she was telling nurse that she is feeling something in between her legs (the baby head is out) a first timer).... the nurse totally ignored her
As she got to the delivery bed my niece managed to sit at the corner of the bed, trying to lift her leg up to lie down, the baby popped/jumped out .... she dropped the drip and swiftly caught the baby boy sharperly, shouting "nurse see my baby repeatedly" and the nurse was sluggishly wearing her hand glove. "Ndi oso ekwensu egbu" "aka ebi go ha na-ala"
The only thing she could voice out of guilt was "... .. Congrats" cause her/their plans failed woefully . . .what an experience that will last her for a life time. She always cry sharing her labour room experience. In her words "it was a horrow movie"

If not na sorry dem for dey tell dem enemy. . . . . . .

Hmmmm such a beautiful lady.
Please from my little experience how can one person labour for 4days, even the baby will become tired and distressed and finally die. They try and avoid that abroad because the baby's heart rate will start dropping.
Don't know how its done in Nigeria.
If you are labouring for more than 24/48hrs should the person not be either induced or a CS is done to bring out the baby ASAP.
I'm no doctor but this is so wrong. The dead baby may have even harmed the mother. They should have removed immediately.
I just wonder for these hospitals in this country.
RIP beautiful lady

I feel bad already..she is just too pretty to die(am not sorry to say this)..When will the common man stop crying for the basic amenities for a government to do that has taken Nigeria so many years?? Governments have come and gone and still sing the same lullaby to provide basic amenities which is a right for every citizen but no we prefer to hail and praise for something that they should do..Africa My Africa which way for the greedy leaders??

Please it is important they publish the doctors name so others do not fall for this and to put other doctors on notice.

bobims&hexiv said...

Not all Nigeria hospitals are bad, I also discovered my baby stopped kicking in me and went to the hospital I registered my antenatal with who asked me to go for a scan, d scan result showed the baby had died in me. The senior doctor asked the nurses to induce me to give birth immediately as delay is dangerous against my plea for CS, he said there is no way he can open d living to bring out d dead that it's wrong and he will advise I corporate with them. After so much pains and after 10hrs in labour with d nurses coming to check on me every now and then , I finally felt d baby's head but d nurses will not allow me to push because the head doctor had drop an instruction for him to be called when I'm in labour solely because of the placenta. When he finally came, he was very professional and handled the placenta with care because d placenta was so soft that it could have easily cut in 2, he cleansed me so well and said I can try again after 3 months. The reason I told this story is just to make u know we still have good hospitals here just that most are not well known hospitals.

This news came when I just received a bad news from my husband's friend, Mr Onyeka. The wife lost a 5 months set of twins pregnancy, after TTC for several years! But we thank God the wife is alive. BVS pls join me in prayers for this woman. It's a pity.

Anonymous said...

@Stella, let me tell you a few things I know as a medical doctor to help you:

When where is "Intrauterine death" (IUD), doctors do not do cesarean section; the evacuate by "whatsoever means"(induction, suction, decapitation, etc.); so this procedure was followed.
Whatever went wrong did so during the "4 days wait" at the hospital or even before admission. Usually women in labor do not come in four days to delivery, something must have been possibly wrong which only the doctors can tell us.

The doctors/nurses ought to have detected IUD earlier???

Probable cause of death; "toxic shock syndrome" -TSS (blood infection) following that induction. There are precautions taken prior to such "risky" induction which ??? if they were followed.

Solution: Expert autopsy in a trusted government hospital will give out a lot and legally it can be taken from there.

Why will anyone want to give birth in Nigeria?
Your leaders, ordinary ear ache and pimple, immediately they travel abroad.
You think they want to die? They know their hospitals are useless na.

You are only sacrificial meat for these hospitals o, some even use you as lab rat. Abeg if you can't travel far,like Canada and UK, try go South Africa or Ghana.

Those countries will do everything to save a life out of a sense of duty and also because they know that avoidable deaths are big blows to their brands. Naija don't care o, they sabi say that Nigerians no get sense. After they shout small, dey go go club, shake bum bum. Life goes on.

RIP

*NB My opinion is that most Nigerian nurses are from the deepest pit of hell. It is like the agony and screams in patients voices is sweeter than Davido's music in their ears. My prayer is that, that is how they will be screaming for eternity in Hell fire as well. Amen.

There is no theology like "there is no way i can cut open the living to bring out the dead". Its so not true. CS isnt a death sentence please and please. Infact one shouldnt induce a woman who has a dead baby, cos so many things could go wrong, and besides not all doctors as u can clearly see knows how to safely deliver d placenta. Please CS is a safety measure. Doctors shld please learn well cos they deal with human lives and will be accountable to God. Thank u

Chisom's story not only broke my heart, it made my blood boil. How is it that those who swear to protect lives have the least regards for it. Hospitals and Dr(s) need to understanding that they are providing a SERVICE to people and all these negligence needs to stop 'yesterday'! As moms, we have to make it our business to πŸ‘€ out for one another. If you've had a terrible experience with any service, please send us your experience so we'd share it with others. I can't but think, if only Chisom knew of a previous mom's experience at Magodo Specialist Hospital, may be she wouldn't have gone there. #TheWorldLostanAngel #Justice4Chisom #RIP #AfricanLivesMatter #AfricanMommy

young FOREVER said...

Ur last statement?????? You won't give birth in a hospital?????

young FOREVER said...

He might not be the one.maybe one of his employee. But I have to say this.most doctors employ people in their establishment but don't go on daily basis for ward round (even when they didn't travel).
We had an experience where a long lost family friend daughter was in pain and went to a reputable Hosp(cos of the owner), the doctor there was treating typhoid and hung different infusion for the poor girl. No improvement for two days till the father called my husband that he learnt we now reside in that state whether he is in town to help check her daughter (the girl is in the uni where we reside). My hubby upon asking the girl few qstns knew right there that she requires immediate surgery. Ruptured appendix and he had to give them some excuse and moved the girl straight to perform a scan and boom! It was as he suspected. The surgery was done on the girl till the parent came in the next day.

Pls all private owners of hospitals shouldn't entrust their establishment to their employees, check them,don't feel too big to go for a daily ward round and put things in order

Do you know I am so tired if all this? We don't even know who to believe again. How can we verify the story??? It seems to bad ti be possible. The doctor snuck bout and left the patient?? Where and why? They left the placenta in her for so long?

I'm not disputing the writer but I can't bring myself to believe there are no assumptions made in this post. But if course the hospital will come and deny, and there will be ni formal investigation, even if there is e will not hear proper result. Nigeria is a shit hole. I wish I never returned. I give this country 3 years if no proper changes I am out. Ah ah someone cannot come and die.

I agreed but another Dr(same hospital) on the day of delivery told me to deliver vaginally cos its over 2yrs of the previous. God showed me mercy and he came after 12hrs.

4 days labour? God forbid. She/the hubby could has asked for CS naa. God bless her soul

You don't typically do a c. Section when there is intrauterine death. There are actually a set of guidelines you have to follow I'm training to be a doctor in the us and even we don't jump to carry out c.sections for fetal demise rather you induce labor.The doctor just told her that to calm her down. Every time someone goes under the knife there is a risk. Yes it's is life saving but it isn't ideal.

This is so sad and heart breaking. The hospital is being sued so I think we should also hear from them. Sometimes in stories like this there is more to what meets the eye. Stella, let me tell you a story that happened 5 months ago in the hospital where I work. A woman was in labour and she came into the labour ward, before then during her antenatal period she was diagnosed with HIV and she commenced medications but she didn't tell her husband her status and it is wrong to disclose such information without the patient's permission. While she was just 2cm dilated the fetal membranes ruptured (her water broke), at that point in order to prevent mother to child transmission you deliver her within 4hours and seeing that she was just 2cm dilated (she was a first timer), vaginally delivery wouldn't be possible in 4hours so to prevent infecting the child CS was advised. The woman refused CS. She refused to give us consent and didn't give us permission to tell her husband because for her husband to sign, he needed to understand the indication for the CS. Well we had her sign a refusal form and allowed labour to progress. At some point, labour became obstructed and we needed an EMERGENCY CS to save her life and the baby, the woman still refused and her husband was not around. His numbers were not reachable. This was a difficult decision. Finally we got a hold of the husband and explained the need for the CS excluding the previous diagnosis. By the time the child was delivered, the baby was severely asphyxiated and despite vigorous resuscitation baby didn't make it. The father was alerted and all hell broke loose. He said he was going to sue the hospital as we didn't act fast enough. We still dif't divulge the real issue. The wife when she was stable had to calm the husband. The woman was discharged and the husband was still unaware of what really happened. The wife refused to tell him. If the woman had died due to delay only the medical practitioners in charge of her case would have known the true cause. Though the two stories are unrelated, we should give the other party a fair hearing. I'm not trying to justify any action, it is sad that a life was lost but we need to know the true root cause. Let us not just throw blames till we hear from both parties

Doctor Sanni said...

Its so sad such an occurrence.i wish such never happen to anyone.
But please let's be careful to pass judgement.
The story we have heard is one sided.
From what I read the woman had previously had 2successful deliveries in the hospital and this was her third.
So I suspect she must have some confidence in the system over there.
I'm also a doctor and I know that no well trained medical practitioner will knowingly cause the death of a patient.
An investigation should be carried out as to what really happened no doubt and anyone found culpable should be dealt with.
But till then let's be careful how we pass judgement.
After all we were not there.
I pray God grants the family the strength to bear the loss

magodo specialist hospital is a very good hospital with outstanding medical officers, i pray may the soul of the faithful departed rest in peace.
