The poor working conditions at a premier hospital in the heart of the national capital, had been exposed by employees of the teaching and training facility.
Some mortuary attendants at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, have berated the insurrection manner in which they work under bizarre circumstances without any meaning thing to smile about.
According to the mortuary workers in the hospital edifice, they have been spending the nights with dead bodies 24/7 but the amount of money paid them monthly by the hospital authorities, is nothing to ride home about.
The workers pointed out among other things that, they are not receiving anything more than 1, 000 cedis and thus, they believe, the hospital authorities have been using them to make their own gains thereby leaving them to their own fates.
The employees stated that, applying and embalming corpses at the morgue, it is a traumatic stress encounter as they have been witnessing all day long. They painted a scary picture where in some instances, they have to fight with “ghosts” after embalment because, some of the departed souls did not die naturally.
