The on-going strike by the Association of Resident Doctors, ARD, at the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has crippled the hospital just as other unions are threatening industrial action over unpaid wages.
The doctors, on the auspices of ARD, had on November 15, commenced an indefinite strike over non-payment of salaries for the past two months.
It was also gathered that the hospital also owed its workforce a backlog of 52 per cent short payment arrears for four months.
Investigations at the hospital revealed that patients were being turned back by nurses and other medical workers in the hospital who were yet to join the strike, while patients on admission were discharged.
