Dumsor Crisis: Two Newborn Babies Allegedly Lose Lives at Tema General Hospital

Two newborn babies have reportedly lost their lives at the Tema General Hospital due to power outages. The neonatal unit, a crucial area for infants requiring intensive care, is heavily reliant on electrical power to operate lifesaving equipment, such as oxygen support systems and emergency care devices.

However, the backup generator, intended to support the unit during power outages, has allegedly failed repeatedly due to overloading.

The situation has raised concerns about the reliability of the hospital’s backup power systems and the potential risks posed to patients, particularly vulnerable newborns.

It highlights the urgent need for improved infrastructure and maintenance to ensure uninterrupted power supply in critical healthcare facilities.
