The Accra Psychiatric Hospital has halted admission of patients into the facility over a GHc4.1 million debt.

This was after several failed attempts by management of the facility to get government to meet its budgetary obligation for more than three years.

Speaking to Pulse.com.gh, Emmanuel Febiri, a nurse and member of the Public Affairs directorate at the hospital said that the facility has owed its suppliers since 2013.

“We are actually owing suppliers since 2013 to the tune of 4.1 million. So now, they have stopped supplying the hospital in terms of detergents, gloves, nothing at all to run the hospital.

“So basically the whole month of July, we have been depending on donations from corporate bodies and individuals, and now what they gave us, it can actually last till the end of the week,” he explained.

Febiri added that the hospital will however attend to emergency and OPD cases.
