Here is a young woman with her kids and husband who was saved from the edge of death in our facility.
She had a ruptured ectopic pregnancy but was managed in a dispensary as a case of pelvic inflammatory disease.
By the time she presented in our hospital, she was already in shock and subconscious. A clinical decision was made to take her in for surgery (laparotomy) after which she was transfused with four units of blood.
She had an excellent recovery and was discharged. She is a member of the Anglican Church Community in Gidan Waya and so it's good to know we have been able to save one of our own from such a menace.
