A week after a power outage, the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital, or UPTH, denied reports that more than 19 infant deaths occurred there.
According to weekend reports, UPTH’s incubators were left without enough electricity to run the hospital’s equipment, which resulted in the deaths of several infants.
The source had also charged that the health facility’s administration had not utilized caution in allocating its resources in a way that would lead to excellence.
However, UPTH refuted the accusations, stating that no infant died in the institution, in a statement issued by its acting public relations officer, Elabha Meni.
Menu stated in a statement that UPTH was the best medical practice in the area and that it had maintained its reputation for quality.
The University of Port-Harcourt Teaching Hospital is a well-known center of excellence, a bastion of education, research, and healthcare provision.
The University of Port-Harcourt Teaching Hospital is a facility where the highest medical standards in the world are upheld and applied, making it one of the top hospitals in the South-South and all of Nigeria.
However, it is quite upsetting that some people attempt to harm the hospital’s reputation by disseminating misleading information and statements.
