UPTH, has denied the reports that over 19 babies died in the facility within a week
The University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital, or UPTH, has refuted claims that more than 19 infant deaths occurred there within a week of a power outage.
Weekend reports claimed that a number of infants in the incubators at UPTH perished due to a lack of energy to power the hospital's machinery.
The source had also charged that the health facility's administration had not utilized caution in allocating its resources in a way that would lead to excellence.
However, UPTH refuted the accusations, stating that no infant died in the institution, in a statement issued by its acting public relations officer, Elabha Meni.
In a statement, Menu said that UPTH was the greatest medical practice in the region and had maintained its reputation for quality.
The University of Port-Harcourt Teaching Hospital, he declared, is a renowned center of excellence and a bastion of medical education and research.
The University of Port-Harcourt Teaching Hospital is a facility where the highest medical standards in the world are upheld and applied, making it one of the top hospitals in the South-South and all of Nigeria.
However, it is quite upsetting that some people attempt to harm the hospital's reputation by disseminating misleading information and statements.
