Karen Hospital CEO Juliet Nyaga, however, has dismissed the accusation absolving the hospital of any wrongdoing.

She noted that the hospital holds various certifications on the quality of services offered adding that care for patients is prioritized at the faciity.

The CEO further castigated journalists for publishing Ms Andega's sentiments.

"Our attention has been drawn to the live, online and print media coverage where statements of allegations of negligence by The Karen Hospital have been broadcasted and promoted by the media houses with absolute ignorance to validate or and confirm facts with the Hospital or circumstances for the occurrence.

"Karen Hospital staff have continued to maintain this high quality of service even during the Covid-19 pandemic as per the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization’s guidelines and protocols of care and treatment of Covid-19," the statement read in part.
