An unidentified man who was involved in a road traffic accident and taken to Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital by a Good Samaritan on February 22 last year has been hospitalised since then.
Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital acting principal administrator Gertrude Kasanka said in an interview that no relative has identified him to date.
“We have a man who has been hospitalised since February last year after a road accident. He was in intensive care unit (ICU) from admission day to November last year,” she said.
Ms Kasanka said the man is paralysed and unable to talk but depends on nurses for assistance.
She said the team of nurses has named him Elijah for identity purposes.
Ms Kasanka said he is currently occupying a room in the high-cost section where he is receiving adequate treatment.
She said management has not considered taking him to a hospice as he needs close medical attention.
Ms Kasanka has applauded government for providing resources that have enabled them to take care of him.
She has, however, appealed to the public to help the hospital identify the man and his relatives.
