A private hospital belonging to a senior government official where ladies are being trained to become nurses without necessary approvals has been shut down by the Ondo State Government.
The medical facility known as Precious Specialist Hospital, belongs to Chairman of Medical Advisory Committee of University of Medical Science Teaching Hospital, Ondo, Dr Michael Gbala.
A source, who spoke with SaharaReporters, said no fewer than 15 young ladies had been undergoing training at the health facility as nurses.
The inexperienced young ladies were deployed by the hospital’s management to attend to patients, thereby putting their lives under grave risk.
“He (Dr Laja) had been training the ladies as nurses in his private hospital for a long time.
“What he is doing in that hospital is called professional malpractices because as a senior doctor who is also working in a government hospital, he knows the implication and the Ministry of Health had to step in by shutting down the hospital.
