Angry Nigerians have taken to social media to drag popular Lagos hospital, “Doren Specialist hospital Ajah” over the death of Rico Swavey.
Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate Rico Swavey sustained injuries after a road accident in the Lekki/ Ajah area of Lagos State but he sadly passed on in the early hours of Wednesday, hours after another BB Naija housemate, Tobi Bakre started the Campaign to raise fund for his treatment.
According reports, Rico was rushed to Doren Hospital after the accident.
A video of health workers mocking him while he battled for his life in the hospital went viral.
Gist lovers wrote, “Seems I finally got the hospital , some are saying it’s Evercare, they just did a disclaimer now saying it’s not them as Nigerians don almost drag life comot for their MD body, those ones don come out say no be them , one of the deceased family who pleaded anonymity talk say na this Doren hospital and on a closer look I see say be like say their uniform na the same and the environment @doren_hospital come forward with a valid explanation and provide those non challant under bridge nurses , na una hospital he happen abi no be una , you need to come forth with better explanations, why una Dey limit comment if no be say una don do bad.

From the video trending online, Rico Swavey, who was indisposed, was seen sitting on a chair while receiving oxygen as the nurses contemplated on how to move him into Intensive Care Unit.
One of them had reprimanded her coworkers for recording him when he was fighting for his life in the video because she wasn’t happy with their behavior.
She noted how he was in critical condition, yet they were more concerned about making videos. One of them could be heard saying, “Oya, make we carry am now go inside”. Her statement made another nurse chuckle.
Another nurse who wasn’t pleased with their behavior, said, “His oxygen is 90%. You people should stop making video and let’s move him. Somebody is in critical condition and you’re making videos”.
The video has elicited anger from netizens as they drag the healthcare attendants for being lackadaisical.
Reacting to the unveiling of the hospital’s identity, one social media user wrote,
