Off-Duty Nurse Commended For Saving Dying Patient On The Street


The trainee nurse, Lydia Agyei Yeboah was on her way to the regional hospital in Koforidua when she spotted the patient, only identified as Joe attacked by convulsive seizure and loss of consciousness.

A Nursing Trainee with the Atibie Nursing and Midwifery College on May Day received commendation after her quick reaction helped save a hypoglycemia patient from dying on the street of Koforidua, the Eastern regional capital of Ghana.

The trainee nurse, Lydia Agyei Yeboah was on her way to the regional hospital in Koforidua when she spotted the patient, only identified as Joe attacked by convulsive seizure and loss of consciousness.

Many had then gathered at the scene but were ignorant about the condition of the patient and so feared to get closer to him.

But the trainee nurse, who is currently doing clinical services at the Eastern Regional Hospital quickly rushed to render first aid service to the patient.

She subsequently asked persons around to provide her with sugar which was given to the patient to raise the blood glucose level to normal range.

The patient regained consciousness and was later handed over to the family members who had then arrived at the scene.

Many have since been heaping praises on the trainee nurse for her kind gesture.
