KABALE: Medics at Rugarama hospital in Kabale Municipality Kabale District are stranded with two children suffering from cerebral palsy disease and septic burns
The children have been identified as Owayesu Mercy and Trust Niwakora 5years, residents of Kyanamira Sub county Kabale district, and Mushanje cell, Nyakishenyi Parish Ikumba sub county Rubanda District respectively.
Dr. Ivan Tayebwa the hospital’s medical officer on medical surgical ward told www.ugreports.com that previously Niwakora was their patient for almost two month but because of the final strains, the mother decided to take the child from the hospital without the knowledge of the doctors.
‘’Her wound was ready for skin draft (cutting skin from other parts of the body, mainly the buttocks and putting it on the injured part.) before they took off on 2nd June 2022,’’ he said.
Tayebwa also said that the hospital got concerned and started searching for the patient and found her abandoned in the pastor’s house.
‘’After tracing the child, the parents took off to unknown destinations,’’ he added.
Tayebwa further said that they have restarted the whole process dressing the wounds since Saturday 9th July when she was brought back and that they are trying all means using the hospital resources to save her life.
‘’It’s so unfortunate that we are not receiving any support from the parents,’’ he revealed.
Tayebwa attributed everything to the fear of financial strains from the hospital. He however said that Rugarama hospital puts life at first and the rest come later saying that as the hospital, they were willing to offer all the available services to the innocent child.
Tayebwa challenged parents to be careful whenever they have children below 10 years old. And called upon the public to support the innocent children.
