A doctor at the Tema General Hospital Lawrence Hoedoafia has allegedly beaten up a nurse on duty, Regina Efia Biama.
Mrs Biama has been complaining of bodily pains, swollen forehead and mouth after Dr Hoedoafia allegedly slapped her, sending her tumbling onto a sofa nearly a month ago.
Narrating events leading up to the alleged physical assault, Mrs Biama said she was late for work during her night shift on July 19, 2017, and at about 10 pm, a furious Dr Hoedoafia confronted her in the Nurses’ Rest Room.
“He began raining insults on me and called me all sort of names,” Mrs Biama recalled. “At a point, he said I was stupid and since I couldn’t bear it anymore, I responded by telling him that he was referring to his mother and wife.”
“Immediately, he slapped me and began beating me all over.”
According to her, Dr Hoedofia did not heed to pleas from colleagues who intervened as “he pushed them aside.”
Mrs Biama said she was admitted at the Nabita Hospital for treatment that night after her husband had picked her up.
The case has been reported to the police. However, management of the Tema General Hospital has written to Mrs Biama to withdraw the police case so it can be settled internally.
