Patients have abandoned Moroto Regional Referral Hospital over failure of management to dispose-off dead bodies from the wards.
Dead bodies reportedly spend two to four days in the wards without being disposed-off.
Some patients prefer spending cold nights out to being sheltered in the stinky wards while others have discharged themselves.
According to the hospital director Filbert Nyeko, the facility does not have enough space in the morgue to put the dead bodies.
He said that the hospital mortuary was full of unclaimed dead bodies after relatives abandoned them.
According to him, Moroto municipal council is charged with the responsibility of collecting and burrying of unclaimed bodies.
However, the new Moroto Municipal mayor Noah Ewaru says he’s still working on modalities of collecting the bodies after assuming office following the recent elections.
