Kitui senator Enock Kiio Wambua yesterday made an impromptu visit at kitui level 5 hospital following complains from the patients that they have been sharing beds with dead bodies at the wards after the death of their bedmates.
One of the nurse in charge of ward 6 admitted that the claims of delaying the bodies after death was true as the mortuary attendants say they are busy once called to collect the bodies from the wards.
Senator Kiio said it is a big shame for a referral hospital to be operating in such an unpleasant manner.
Some patients who had been referred to Kenyatta hospital a week ago were still helplessly waiting for the clearance from the wards.
Speaking to the Medical Superintendent J.N Muingai over phone, he said those were just small mistakes done which could destroy the good picture of the hospital.
