Oya today na, I reach hospital come hear some doctors and nurses dey knack dis tori for emergency room. As e happen, dem rush in one patient from another place.

English Version:
Look at this problem! Please if an individual couldn't study medicine in school, should they go about impersonating as a doctors? This has become a new trend in my country. I have heard of stories where orderlies and hospital attendants leave the hospital to start up their own clinics and pose as doctors. They proceed to killing people like they are chickens for Christmas day celebrations. Today, when I got to the hospital, I heard some doctors and nurses talking about a story in the ER. Apparently, a patient had been rushed in from another place.  (I can't tell if the place was a hospital or a hotel from the letter headed paper of the referral letter that the patient brought. I'm still confused). I wanted to copy out the letter to show you but I decided to take a photo of it instead. As they say "seeing is believing".

You might also remember that I've written something similar to this in the past. Back then, I was attacking the poor educational system in Nigeria. That case was about a patient who was told to write a letter of apology for missing her clinic day. (Not all patients are told to do this meanwhile. Hers was a curious case). I don't know what language she chose to write it in, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't English. The letter has also been included in this post (above - last letter). Let me know what language you think it is. Lol. You see, I was busy castigating my neighbours (educational system) for the smoke in their house, little did I know that my own house (health care system) was on fire. Is this not a case of pot calling kettle black?

What I want to say is this "our government should better be careful because, it isn't only those who carry ammunition that are called thieves. I have said my bit. Until next time



  1. Still laughing. Great referral. Used to work close to that part of the state. There are a lot of such clinics / hospitals / hotels/ morgues down there, run by people you can't classify. Their management never changes: 5+ antibiotics, 3+ analgesics, fluids and then referral for an "ENSSTRAY". No let your blood boil too much dear, you will see more. Laura

    1. My dear, it's simply unbelievable. God help us. Thanks for your comment
