A man is reported to have robbed nurses on night duty at the Ridge Hospital in Accra on Good Friday, March 25 at 3am.

According to a nurse on duty, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the robber easily gained access into the theatre recovery unit in spite of security guards at the hospital.

"The robber took way all our valuable items including, expensive jewelleries, phones and monies.

"We were all female nurses on night duty, we saw the robber trying to pull a knife when we attempted to confront him, hence we allowed him to go because we were frightened," she added.

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.
