Doren Hospital: Embargo Will Be Put On Nurses For Videoing Dying Rico Swavey

The Lagos State Government has opened an investigation into the behaviour of some staff of the Doren Specialist Hospital in Ajah as Rico Swavey lay dying in their emergency unit.

Rico, whose real name is Patrick Fakoya, was involved in a ghastly accident on Wednesday.

He eventually passed away on Thursday.

The former Big Brother Naija housemate was filmed by one of the nurses on duty as he battled for life.

After an unconscious Rico was placed on oxygen while on a chair, the nurses can be heard chatting. One urged them to carry Rico onto the bed.

“You people should stop making the video. Somebody is dying, you people are making video”, she scolded her colleagues.

The footage sparked anger on social media, with members of the public demanding a probe. Some share similar experiences of negligence in Nigerian hospitals.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Gbenga Omotoso, announced that the authorities 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,” Omotoso said.
