KNH comes clean on reports of second botched surgery

She lost a child after the surgery

According to KNH director of clinical services Dr. Gacheri Nyamu, the Caesarean section conducted on one Susan Nekesa was not the cause of injuries on her internal organs and the public should refrain from premature conclusions.

Dr. Gacheri however apologized for not communicating to the patient what their treatment plan entailed adding that the hospital sometimes faces a shortage of colostomy bags needed for bowel movement and when a patient cannot afford to bring their own, the hospital tries to get one from a different facility.

“We apologize to the family members for not explaining what exactly happened. It is not this hospital’s policy to refuse to give patients their information,” he said.

The Hospital was put on the spotlight again after another surgery went wrong leaving a woman bedridden and mourning one of her newborn twin girls.

According to Susan Nekesa’s husband Robert Sitati, his wife was taken back to the operating table where the medics discovered that there was a mistake in the first surgery conducted.

“It was discovered that the surgery was done wrongly. A portion of the small intestines, like 50cm, was outside the chamber where it was supposed to be,” said Sitati.
