The Lagos state government has promised to investigate the unprofessional conduct of the nurses at a hospital in the state where reality TV star, Patrick Fakoya, aka Rico Swavey, was rushed shortly after he was involved in a motor accident that later claimed his life.
A 30-second video showing some nurses at a hospital in Lagos State being lackadaisical with their duties while Rico was in a critical condition has sparked outrage on social media. In the clip, Rico Swavey saw on a chair. While one of the nurses called for help to put him on a stretcher, the others were laid back even as one of them chuckled as he was filming.
One of the nurses was heard cautioning her colleague against the act.
“You people should stop making the video; somebody is dying, you people are making video,” the nurse said
The video has been widely condemned by many Nigerians.
Reacting to the public outcry, the Lagos state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, said the state government had commenced an investigation.
”That hospital is not a government hospital. We have started an investigation into the unprofessional conduct of those who appeared in that video.” he said
