“Are they animals?”. Throwback of a video of LUTH hospital in Lagos made me cry

I was scrolling across Facebook when I saw a video that caught my attention, I couldn’t help but pause the video and bury my head in shame on the account of the conditions the hospitals in Nigeria most especially in Lagos, and not just any hospital in Lagos, The Lagos State Teaching Hospital which is a federal hospital.

The working conditions of hospitals in Nigeria is sadly not far from hell. To provide a serene and a comfortable environment for the citizens of Nigeria has been a major setback for the government. At times it is even better to be treated at home than to be treated in the hospital because of the poor sanitary situation of the hospital. This has pushed people to either get treatment from abroad or at a private hospital thereby spending so much money.

Below are some photos of the poor condition of the hospital.

In the video you would hear a woman lamenting about the living conditions of the mother with their new born babes sleeping outside the hospital with no adequate care provided.

Take your time to watch the heartbreaking video below.

So, my fellow Nigerians and readers and across the world, what can you say about the video? How can the government tackle this problem? And do you think the government can tackle it? Let us hear your thoughts below.
