The St Martin De Porres Hospital has just one incubator unable to keep the quintuplets.

 

The Hospital management said efforts are being made to refer them to Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for further care especially when they do not have adequate incubators for them.

Head of the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Dr Dela Dennis said although the birth rate is low and they are all on Oxygen with saturation rate between 97 to 100, they are doing well.
