Dr Nagoda explained that 3 officers of the X-ray units where caught charging patients 12,000 for X -ray against the approved hospital price of 2,000 and no documents to show as evidence of payment leaving the facility to carry out less than 10 X-ray’s per week despite the fact that the 2 X-ray batteries are functional.
