In Kano hospital, a pregnant woman dies after physicians allegedly refused to treat her due to a payment alerts delay.
Shema'u Sani Labaran, a pregnant woman, passed away at the Abdullahi Wase Specialist Hospital in Nassarawa Local Government Area of Kano State as a result of claimed medical incompetence brought on by the current naira policy issue.

The woman's husband, Malam Bello Fancy, told Daily Trust that the physicians didn't treat his wife for more than three hours because of a delay in the bank transfer.

Recall how the government of Kano State threatened to shut down and revoke the license of any business entity found to be accepting outdated naira notes in the state and issued warnings to marketers, supermarkets, and the general public.

Residents were informed that several organizations, notably hospitals that deal with emergencies and government-owned gas stations and retailers, have begun refusing the old notes.

Speaking to Freedom Radio, Malam Fancy claimed that when his wife was about to give birth, he took her to the hospital, but that because there was no POS and the hospital refused his old naira notes, they asked him to put the money into their account instead.

The doctors on duty reportedly didn't treat his wife despite the fact that he sent the money and got debited because they insisted on waiting until they saw the alert in their account, which took over three hours.

When they got the alert, the pains had already quadrupled and my wife was bleeding when she came into the hospital from our home. Nevertheless, they didn't touch her until three hours after they got the alarm, he claimed.

"When they hospitalized her, they learned that she couldn't give birth on her own and needed surgery. I consented and made the payment via transfer. The time it took for them to get the warning and operate on my wife was also delayed by an extra three hours. Surprisingly, the mother passed away as well as the baby, who was brought out dead."

Dr. Rahila Garba, the hospital's chief medical officer, refuted the allegations, claiming it did not accurately describe the incident.

However, additional hospital patients corroborated the occurrence, claiming that they, too, had issues with medical bill payment, which caused delays in receiving care.

Malam Ibrahim Abdullahi, a spokesman for the state Hospital Management Board, said they got information about the event and would launch an investigation in an interview with City & Crime.

We recently received the information, therefore we can't say for sure what caused the situation. Nonetheless, we have started an investigation, he continued.
