KNH in another botched surgery scandal
Kenyatta National Hospital has been caught up in yet another botched surgery just a few weeks after the brain mix up surgery that saw doctors do a brain surgery on the wrong patient.
Susan Nekesa is accusing KNH doctors of rapturing her intestines during a Caesarean section delivery leading to several complications.
She says that she was admitted to the facility on January 25 and successfully delivered twin girls a day after.
“When I came to see her, her stomach was inflated and warm. She could not talk and used sign language,” her sister Evelyn Anindo said.
A week later, Susan was wheeled back to the operating table and claims it was then that doctors admitted they knew the cause of her health problem.
Susan and her family is accusing KNH of negligence even as the hospital continues to operate on a skeleton staff after registrars went on strike after their colleagues were suspended over the botched brain surgery.
