Private legal practitioner and Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, says he will sue the St. Gregory Hospital at Kasoa and the medical doctor who allegedly ordered that oxygen supply be cut to a nine-week-old baby.
According to Nana Obiri Boahen, the circumstances that led to the death of the baby were unacceptable, hence his decision to take legal action against the doctor and the hospital.
He said on Accra-based Okay FM on Thursday, that: “The writ will be ready today and we will file it tomorrow, Friday.”
The oxygen was shut to little Prosper over his parents’ inability to immediately raise GHS533 to pay his bills.
Little Prosper had been on admission at the hospital since March 5 due to respiratory problems until his death three weeks later.
The Ghana Health Service has launched an investigation into the matter.
