LAGOS AUGUST 15TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The management of Fairview Hospital in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State has explained how a pregnant patient who is a Jehovah’s Witnesses died in their facility.
Fairview Hospital made the explanation in a statement signed by its Admin Manager, Mrs.K. Osharechiren.
Reacting to media reports, the hospital said the pregnant patient was admitted in their facility at 3:30 am on 13/8/2020 in acute distress.
According to the hospital, “Patient had severe hypertension and was known to have other comorbidities requiring medications that made her prone to vascular thromboembolism.
“Indeed at surgery, she was found to have an ischaemic and gangrenous uterus with a massive intra-abdominal bleed. The fetus was dead.
“Being Jehovah’s Witnesses all efforts to persuade her husband and family members to accept blood transfusion that could have saved her life, failed.
“The patient lapsed into irreversible shock and was declared dead 10 hours post-surgery. Our heart goes out to the family of the bereaved.”

    Please stay away from this dangerous American cult which is putting a lot of resources into the third world because, in countries where there is high internet use exposing it, people are leaving and very few recruits are being made.

    Jehovah’s Witnesses’ beliefs and practices are particularly damaging to children’s educational, social, emotional, psychological even physical well-being. This
    Is not what the upcoming generations in developing countries need.

    The cult has been extensively investigated, mainly in the context in its appalling record of covering up its serious child sexual abuse problem, in Australia and Europe.

    It would be interesting to hear from any readers who have had contact with it.

      Thats way over the top to describe them as a Cult.first u have no statistical evidence to prove your claims of people leaving.

      When it comes to how their beliefs affect their educational,physical etc wellbeing u cant be more wrong and ignorant.i dare you go to schools and take samples of children of other religion and those of the witnesses, compare their brilliance i can assure you, you will tke back your opinion.

      The truth of the matter is eeryone is entitled to the type and manner of medical treatment he ir she accepts

      If after transfusion of blood the patient still could not make it you wont hear of it as it is with many cases.
