Plea for the sick
If the most needy in society cannot get medical attention after lying outside the doors of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for over five hours, then where will they get it?
This was the question which a number of people raised yesterday about the plight of a man known as “Prince”, who was lying on the floor outside the Accident and Emergency Department.
The DAILY NATION received calls from several concerned citizens about the man described as “very sick”, in severe pain, naked or partly naked, with a yellow liquid coming from his stomach.
One report said it was only after several people complained about how the man was treated that someone placed a sheet over him. (RL)
