The dismissed Director of Pharmacy at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Elizabeth Bruce has dragged the management of the hospital to the Human Rights Court for contempt after she was sacked
A human rights court has ordered the reinstatement of director of Pharmacy of the Korle Bu Hospital Elizabeth Bruce.
The court presided over by Justice Essel Mensah arrived at the decision following the withdrawal of the dismissal letter of Mrs. Bruce by authorities of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
Mrs. Bruce dragged management of the Korle- Bu Teaching Hospital to court for contempt after sacking her while a court hearing was ongoing to challenge her interdiction.
In a suit filed at the Human Rights Court in Accra, Elizabeth Bruce stated that her dismissal at a time when hearing is pending is only “calculated at interfering with and obstructing the due administration of justice and in the event, bring the authority of a court of competent jurisdiction into disrepute”.
The Board Chairman of the hospital, Prof. Anthony Mawuli Sallar and CEO Dr. Gilbert Buckle have been cited as respondents.
Korle Bu Teaching Hospital announced that following a forensic audit into the operations of the Pharmacy Department of the Hospital it has sacked with immediate effect four top officials including the Director of Pharmacy.
