The Tain district government hospital at Nsawkaw in the Brong Ahafo Region is in dire need of more infrastructures to help solve the problem of congestion.

The wards are congested while there is not enough space to accommodate outpatients.

Reports say that an outbreak any contagious disease can cause severe problems.

The Medical Superintendent of the hospital and district director of medical services, Dr Michael Rockson in an interview with the News Hunter Magazine revealed that another major challenge is the absence of an ambulance which caused four maternal deaths last year.

He said with the creation of a maternal mortality task force a lot is being done to curb maternal deaths in the district.

Dr Adjei disclosed that neo-natal deaths are being solved while pregnant women are being advised to seek medical care instead of staying at home.

The medical superintendent, therefore, appealed to the government to speed up the construction of new facilities at the hospital.

The head of administration of the hospital, Alhaji Abdul Aziz Abubakar also said that the lack of adequate facilities is making the hospital authorities to admit four children for a bed which is not normal and also put pressure on workers in the wards.

Alhaji Abubakar also said that situation is making doctors posted to the facility to decline the offer.

Touching on logistics, the administrator said that the hospital has no vehicle, morgue and laundry machines.

He pointed out that the hospital serves people from several communities with some patients coming from the Ivory Coast.

He pleaded with the government to ease the congestion, especially at the maternity ward by completing the ongoing projects.
