The Medical Director of the hospital, Dr Thomas Anaba and the Departmental Director of Nursing who later rushed to the scene immediately they were informed, intervened and provided transportation for the affected nurses.

Dr. Anaba assured the nurses that management will ensure refund of their lost properties.

Some Ghanaians have already questioned the extent of security at various hospitals in the country, considering events which have unfolded in the past, including reports of missing babies, patients committing suicide, among others.

Meanwhile, police have launched investigations into the incident.
