  • Uproar among Kenyans after KNH doctors operate on wrong patient

On Friday Koros suspended the admitting rights of the neurosurgeon registrar, the ward nurse, the anaesthetist and the theatre receiving nurse. Four medics have been suspended so far because of the glaring medical malpractice.

It comes only six weeks after an investigation was ordered into claims that nursing mothers were sexually assaulted by morgue attendants at the same hospital.

An investigation by the Daily Nation newspaper revealed that two men had been taken to the hospital last Sunday.

Doctors only realised the mistake after they had opened the skull of the wrong patient and found no blood clot.

Social media users have expressed shock that such an incident could have been allowed to happen.

Lily Koros, KNH chief executive officer, says the hospital "deeply regrets this event and has done all it can to ensure the safety and well-being of the patient in question".

Just when Kenyans were beginning to forget about the "baby theft saga" that was recently reported at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH), another scandal has hit the giant health facility.

Luckily, both patients were fine following the mix-up, with the man who actually had the blood clot potentially not needing surgery as his condition has reportedly improved. Some have demanded the resignation of the entire hospital board of management in the wake of the controversies that have tarnished the hospital.

Few medical errors are as vivid and terrifying as those that involve patients who have undergone surgery on the wrong body part, undergone the incorrect procedure, or had a procedure intended for another patient.

"The staff in theatre had no way of telling they were operating on the wrong patient because he was unconscious", a source, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, said.

"We are happy to inform the public that the patient is in recovery and progressing well", Koros said.

She did not disclose the identity of the patients, only saying that the hospital will "advise on the cause of action to be taken".
