Ghanaian actress, Beverly Afaglo has lamented the poor service celebrities receive from health professionals at various health facilities in the country.
The actress’s concerns come following the death of three prominent figures (Prince Yawson, a.k.a Waakye, Ekow Blackson, and BBNaija star Rico) in the space of weeks.
Some of these celebrities were reported to have died as a result of negligence from health professionals.
Reacting to their deaths on her Instagram page, Beverly lamented how nurses have become more interested in taking photos/videos of celebrities when they are rushed to the hospitals, instead of providing them with urgent care.
It’s disheartening to know that people have become so inhumane that they care about making news content than saving lives.These nurses are busy recording the celebrities for content and gossip and others are busy on their phones on social media, following trending news or talking and chatting with their boyfriends instead of saving lives.We have lost too many celebrities this year too sudden. How do u feel when that celebrity dies and u know u could hv saved him/her? U live and die with that guilt. These are people who are not loved by only their families but many around the world. Stop breaking our hearts if u don’t have one,” part of her post read.
She further dropped a few suggestions to help curb the menace, adding that it was a bad look for hospitals when celebrities die in their premises.
“I suggest our nurses drop their phones in lockers and on silent when they get to work and can only have them when they get a 30mins break during their shift. Dear Hospital owner, when a celebrity dies in your hospital it’s not good for your brand, it makes your hospital inadequate and incompetent. When videos of celebrities on hospital beds surfaces on the internet, every nurse in that ward must be arrested, investigated and the culprit dismissed and his/her license revoked. It is sad and humiliating to see our celebrities in such state so stop it,” she suggested.
Beverly’s post resonated with some of her colleagues including Juliet Ibrahim who commented stating that the world has become a toxic place to live in.
“So disheartening that some people pain is entertainment to others… the world has become a toxic place cus people will rather bring out phones to record content then save someone when in times of need… the society we live in today is just selfish,” she commented
