The Tafo Government Hospital in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region has denied claims that a student nurse turned into crocodile at the facility.
This follows reports that a student nurse had turned into a crocodile causing, a pregnant staff nurse to collapse.
According to the reports, the student nurse had been sent to buy gari and beans popularly called Gorb3, by the pregnant staff nurse.
When she returned with the food, the pregnant nurse got furious that, the former had not followed her orders to buy the beans and ended up raining insults on her.
The student nurse was however, unhappy about the behaviour of the staff nurse and went into the Nurses’ room to sit there.
She is alleged to have turned into a crocodile, immediately the pregnant nurse entered the Nurses’ room, causing the latter to collapse.
The staff nurse had to be admitted to the hospital for days due following the incident.
