Kenyatta National Hospital has asked Kenyans to ignore reports that one of the patients in the surgery mix up died.
KNH Corporate Affairs manager Simon Ithai has denied reports that UoN student Angelo Miano died after a wrong surgery at the facility.
The student, aged 25, was rushed to KNH after being knocked down by a boda boda in Kericho.
“[The story about] Miano, [which] appeared in one of the daily newspapers and social media, as one of the patients involved in the unintended surgery, was not true,” said Ithai.
The referral hospital noted that Miano was admitted in critical condition on February 19. He was treated in the specialised neurosurgery ward and later moved to the Intensive Care Unit. He died on February 27.
KNH said the two patients who underwent surgery were being treated and have made “remarkable improvement”.
Ithai said the two, who remain unidentified, were admitted in the general surgery ward on February 18 and 19. He said they had head injuries but were in stable conditions.
