Medical negligence resulting to death at the Kitui referral hospital.

Kitui County ambulances during their launch in 2015

A man’s father, let’s call him John, passed on today at 3:00a.m as a result of negligence from ignorant health workers.”My father was referred to Kenyatta Hospital Monday evening after he developed breathing problems. With the help of well wishers we managed to raise ksh.10,000 which was to be paid to the county Government for ambulance services.

Before we left I asked the nurse and driver who had taken one and half oxygen cylinders for my father ,whether it would be enough to last him the journey to Nairobi, to which they replied yes” John said.

According to John before getting to Kyamathyaka the half cylinder was already used up and when he possed the same question again, the nurse replied in the affirmative.

Before getting to wamunyu,all oxygen had been used up and now John was forced to use his shirt to “generate” oxygen.

His father however succumbed. May his soul rest in peace.
