But three days after the December 29, 2017 surgery at the Ridge hospital (new Greater Accra Regional hospital), Ernest Oppong was sent home with severe burns from his waist to his right thigh and down around his buttocks. It was to signal a very painful process of recovery exacerbated by negligent nurses and half-hearted treatment at the Ridge hospital, he lamented. The Ridge hospital already had a problem of giving burns to a man who came for treatment for appendicitis. He says he pays 50 cedis for transportation from Achimota to Ridge hospital in anytime he was due for treatment. "I was never happy with Ridge hospital from day one," he said.
