Doren Hospital breaks silence on Rico Swavey’s death
Doren Specialist Hospital on Friday, denied claims that its nurses were negligent in the treatment of late Big Brother Naija star, Rico Swavey.
The hospital also insisted members of it staff did not film the reality TV star on his sick bed
A video, which trended on Twitter following the star’s death, showed disorganised health workers around Rico, while he lay prone on the sick bed.
A tweep who shared the video simply said, “Health attendants were just making videos and laughing while someone was dying. Sorry Rico #ricoswavey.”
The video had been trailed by outrage at the health workers and the facility which many speculated was Doren Hospital, Ajah, Lagos State.
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had promised to look into the case and to sanction the hospital.
