It’s Illegal For Any Hospital to Reject Accident Victims – FRSC by katty : April 12, 2019, 04:02:02 PM
-Any health worker who rejected accident victim will pay a fine of N50,000 and or six month imprisonment.

The Federal Road Safety Corps’ Zonal Commanding Officer for Zone RS10, comprising Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara States, Dr Kayode Olagunju has warned hospitals against rejecting victims of accidents.

“It is illegal for any hospital to reject accident victims ‘” he stated.

Speaking with key stakeholders that formed the multiple data sources on Road Traffic Crashes (RTC) in the zone, he said the fines for this is N50,000 and or six month imprisonment.



Olagunju harped on  the need for RTC victims to get prompt rescue and care, noting that the bulk of the victims die within one hour of the crashes known as the golden hour.

He said: “All hands must be on deck to ensure that the victims are well managed within the golden hour.

“In  line with the global best practices, the country operates a 30-day rule which means a Road Traffic Crash victim should be monitored for at least 30 days and whoever dies within 30 days after the crash, is recorded to have died through  RTC involved in.”

He stressed the need for continued collaboration of all agencies in traffic management in the zone.

He enjoined agencies involved in RTC management comprising the FRSC, the police, hospital managements, Vehicle Inspection Officers, state agencies on traffic and the National Bureau of Statistics to ensure proper documentation of every road crash detailing vehicles and persons involved as well as casualty statuses.

Olagunju urged them to effectively collaborate in creating credible RTC database in the zone.

He  drew attention of the participants to the National Road Traffic Crash Management System (NRTCMS) aimed at harmonizing data from different sources for the country to have single credible RTC data.
