Kenyatta National Hospital boss suspended

Uproar after Kenyatta National Hospital surgeons performed delicate brain surgery on wrong patient

The Kenyatta National Hospital blunder caused uproar on Thursday night after a doctor conducted a brain surgery on a wrong patient.

An unnamed man who was due to receive only nursing and medication for head swelling was wheeled into the operating theatre on February 19 and underwent a brain surgery meant for someone else.

The hospital's management said it had also interdicted a ward nurse, theatre receiving nurse, and an anesthetist who are believed to must have played a role in the mishap.

"The hospital deeply regrets this event and has done all it can to ensure the safety and well-being of the patient in question".

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

The facility's management has suspended the admission rights of a Neurosurgery Registrar and issued him with a show-cause letter for apparently performing brain surgery a wrong patient.

In June, Ring announced they'd figured out how to connect select devices to work with Alexa on Echo Show and Fire TV. Other acquired companies such as Twitch and Audible also run as separate entities on, notes The Verge .

Other staff at the hospital are protesting the suspension and saying the person/people who tagged the patients are the ones who made the mistake.

Both were admitted to ward 5A, which covers general surgery and trauma patients without fractures.

"I have directed the board that the CEO of this organisation, with the colleague responsible for clinical matters of this hospital, are sent on compulsory leave forthwith and in their place two experts will be taking over to run this institution for the period the investigations will be done and a decision reached".

"Besides, the file details and patient label tallied".

It wasn't until hours into the surgery that doctors discovered there was no blood clot, according to a report from the BBC news service.

After consulting a senior neurosurgeon on call, the operating doctor was instructed to proceed no further, clean up the area and close the head.
