SHE WORRIED ABOUT THE HEALTH OF HER PATIENTS

After some time, my husband, who earlier went to the toilet to ease himself, wanted to go again but he could not make it. He just slumped and I was screaming the name of God.

After sometime, Dr. Adadevoh just came and said, “Excuse me, sir. We are discharging you; you are okay. My husband was very anxious to go and I said, “No doctor, you still have to examine him. Tell him to walk from here to there.” We were laughing, including my husband; but right there, my husband slumped again.

If you saw how worried Dr. Adedavoh was! She started running up and down, doing everything possible to revive him. She took proper care of him by herself; she did not even allow the ward attendants, I mean young nurses, to touch him.

She assured me that he would be fine, and she told my husband not worry and from that moment, she would come to our ward very early in the morning to attend to my husband even before getting dressed for work. She was with us throughout. She had a way of making my husband respond to treatment.

WITH ADADEVOH, YOU RECEIVED TREATMENT EVEN IF YOU WERE BROKE

In the end, my husband gave up after eight days and we didn’t have money to pay for the expenses because there was no access to my husband’s account immediately after he died. This kind woman helped us to talk to the management of the hospital to be patient with us until when we were able to pay the bill.

SHE TREATED YOU IN HOSPITAL AND VISITED YOU AT HOME

When I came back from the burial at Onitsha, she came with provisions and so many other things. She even gave me N20, 000. She was a doctor that would treat you in the hospital and come to your house to ask of you to make sure you were okay. Even if the person is dead, she would make sure that she got in touch with his or her family to know how they were faring.

SHE WAS A GOOD HUMAN BEING

We really lost a good human being – the best doctor that I have ever known in my lifetime. I am 78 years old and I have seen so many doctors; I have been to so many hospitals but I have never seen a doctor like Dr. Adadevoh. This lady! This lady!! Ebola has killed us; I don’t know why (breaks down in tears). This Ebola has taken away a great person o, a good human being. Oh! Oh!! I don’t know oooooo. This great woman. I don’t what to do. I just don’t know. O God, we cannot see you, we cannot see you to ask you why you took away this perfect woman. Why! O why, not other doctors? Why not someone else? Why must it be Adadevoh, why?

She has been my family doctor, treating everyone, even those that came to stay with us and she never forgot anyone. She asked after all her patients.

NOTHING TOO BIG TO IMMORTALISE HER

There is nothing too big for government to do in keeping her memories alive. Nothing too big. She fought to prevent Sawyer from infecting others with Ebola, She did her best for this country. Nothing is too much to use in remembering her, even if it is to name one of these big hospitals after her.
