This Ghanaian Nurse, Gertrude Maabs Aduwaa Yankson proves there’s hope for humanity as she gives a patient who was abandoned at the hospital a good haircut.
Gertrude is a Nurse-Midwife and an old student of Swedru International School. She posted on her Facebook wall talking about how she gave Abu Zakari, the abandoned patient a haircut and also stated that doctors needed a CT SCAN at the cost of GHC1100, which the patient could definitely not afford. Mr. Abu Zakari who fell from a height and was brought in by “good Samaritans” a week after was left at the hospital due to financial constraint.
In Gertrude’s post, she pleads with people to support the patient financially via Mobile Money.
There was an update hours later from Gertrude stating that the doctors requested for MRI instead of CT SCAN because it is more informative.
Gertrude proves once again that nursing is indeed a calling. Our well-wishes go out to Abu Zakari and the Nation needs more nurses like her.
