The Tema General Hospital has refuted reports alleging that a three-day-old baby died as a result of a power outage at the facility on Tuesday night, March 26.

In a statement issued on March 27, the hospital confirmed the occurrence of a power outage but clarified that “no lives were lost as a result of this power outage.”

The Tema General Hospital explained that although a generator set dedicated to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) “tripped off for a short period” during the power cut, it was promptly addressed, and power was restored to the unit before the national grid was restored.

The hospital clarified that after the power cut, the hospital’s electricians managed to restore power to the facility within two hours.

The statement stressed the hospital’s dedication to placing its patients’ health and safety first.

“The Tema General Hospital assures the general public that the facility will continue to put the health and safety of its patients at the core of its business,” the statement concluded.

Below is a statement from the Tema General Hospital.
