Teaching Hospital Gives Ultimatum For Unclaimed Corpses.

Teaching Hospital Gives Ultimatum For Unclaimed Corpses.

Management of Osun State University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, Osun State, has declared the mortuary of the hospital congested with unclaimed bodies.

It subsequently gave 14 days for relatives who have corpses in the mortuary unit of the hospital between January 2019 and June 2023 to come and retrieve them.

The hospital noted that it would resort to mass burial of all unclaimed bodies after 14 days of the announcement as an alternative to decongest the mortuary.

Similarly, in September 2023, the Federal Medical Centre in Keffi, Nasarawa State, gave a two-week ultimatum for the retrieval of nine corpses that were unclaimed in its mortuary for an extended period.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the medical centre, Miss Esther Bature, and made available to newsmen in the Keffi Local Government Area of the state.

Usually, corpses of some accident victims remain unclaimed on hospitals because sometimes, their relatives may not be aware of their whereabouts.
