Exam Questions – Second Term Examination English Studies Primary 4 (Basic 4)











Last week my class went on a school visit to Lagos University Teaching Hospital ( LUTH). The hospital is very large. We were shown around by a female doctor, Dr. Bukola, She looked smart in a white coat with a stethoscope around her neck. She showed us the rooms where doctors treat patients.

When someone comes to hospital, doctor first look at the symptoms of the patient, then they decide what medicine or treatment the patient needs. The hospital has many large rooms called wards, that have many beds. Patients sleep in the wards when they are ill to go home. These are seperate wards for males and females.

Some of the patients are on a drip. A drip is a plastic bottle that is held by a drip stand. The bottle contain fluids including water, glucose and sometimes medicines. These flow from the bottle through a tube into patients arm. Dr. Bukola explained that a patient who is too sick to eat normal food needs a drip. These are different sections in the hospital. Surgical operations take place in the operating theatre. The doctors who perform operations are called surgeons. These is a maternity ward for pregnant women and women who just gave birth.

There is also children’s wards where doctors and nurses can treat sick children.
