In the letter, the Association of Resident Doctors, LUTH chapter, said the house officers were in deep grief over the loss of their colleague, a co-house officer, Michael, who died on 17th September 2023, after having a 72 hours call in the Neurosurgery Unit.
They stated that Michael was said to have been on call 72 hours before arriving home on Sunday morning to get set for church service, reaching his worship centre, where he slumped in the church at about 11 am.
According to the resident doctors, Michael’s roommate attested to the fact that he had barely slept in their apartment over the past one week as he was always on call and that the day he returned home was around 3 a.m. after surgeries and other activities in the Neurosurgery Unit.
