The Nurses at New Creation Medical Hospital ORJI, in Owerri North LGA, Imo State were today treated to a rare spectacular when the CEO of Ifeanyicy.com, an Online media platform visited the medical facility to pay the Hospital bill of a "detained" patient, Mrs Precious Ikechukwu, a native of Akabo in Ikeduru LGA , Imo State, married to Mr Nelson Emmanuel Ikechukwu who hails from Ebonyi State.
The woman, IfeanyiCYBlog learnt, was pregnant and rushed to the hospital were she was admitted for a caesarian section (Operation to deliver a baby), the baby in question died in her womb due to lack of proper Medicare. It happened late January and after the successful operation, the woman was alive and charged N285, 000.00 (Two hundred and eighty five thousand naira).
The husband was able to raise One hundred and sixty five thousand (N165, 000.00), and the balance is N120k (One hundred and twenty thousand naira).
She was discharged since January ending but still detained in the Hospital for the balance of N120k. Before the Surgery incident, she sales Abacha (African Salad) in Orji Area of Owerri.
With no one to pay her outstanding bill, hers become a life of hard knocks when the management of the medical facility detained her and vowed to release her only after paying up.
When contacted by a Facebook friend through inbox message, which reads "Please Sir,
use your good office to contact your friends and readers here on Facebook to be of help to a woman detained in the hospital at No 2 New Creation Road, Orji, after Nkwo Orji Market Junction, for not being able to settle hospital bills ".
I was moved and appealed to friends on my Facebook Timeline, to assist in order to settle the poor woman's hospital bill, and ensure she goes home with peace of mind after loosing her baby.
The Appeal message reads "Dear people of God, please save this woman situation by sending to her the sum of 80k (as I was earlier told) ,for her freedom, and to glorify God. Where ever you got the money to pay for this poor woman medical bill, God will multiply it in hundred folds. Amen."
To God be the glory, in the next 24hrs, I raised the money through good Samaritans, Uju Ogemdi Valentine, who sent to me 40k, Lumanzeh Chukwubuikem sent (70k),and Adonis Eke sent (10k), totally N120k.
Don't forget, I was initially briefed by my Facebook instigator , Mr Chijioke Ohaji that the left over balance was N80k. I went to the Hospital, with the mind that after paying the hospital bill, I will give the woman the balance for up keep, fortunately or unfortunately, the Hospital management records show her balance to stood at N122, 685.00, and I paid N123k, then gave the woman N5, 000 for her transport home.
The sorry situation in the Hospital was highly pathetic, a situation that will make the most hardened criminal cry. I couldn’t control my emotions, I saw situations beyond my control. I call unto God. I ask question why. My dear readers. Let's visit the Hospital again. Let God take glory. Three other women, has been discharged. Their babies also died inside their womb, family background, worst than what you can imagine, God help us. Another Young lady, had ruptured stomach, but had a successful major operation, waiting for money for medication and discharge. Pathetic, a woman that give birth to premature babe, incubated for a month now, but was discharged last week, with a bill around 100k, No one to pay. Most of them, their husbands story, are better not told. Jesus!
I will be returning their in the next few days. I emptied my pocket and even spent my younger sister's school fees, but I believe God. I am doing his work.
Please dear friends, you can reach me for this Evangelism.
You can as well, forward what you have as your spirit directs, for onward delivery to the sick patients , I will return here(Facebook) to praise God for what you have done. Thanks.( 08177868332 my number).
