MP Shah Hospital issues statement over outrageous bill

The body of the diseased has been detained

“The patient was brought in on the night of 11th April 2018 shortly before midnight after sustaining injuries which led to massive blood loss. As with protocol, in which every patient has the right to emergency treatment and due to her critical condition, she underwent emergency surgery by a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons. The patient was in critical state and needed life support in our Intensive Care Unit,” read part of the statement.

The statement was issued after Kenyans on social media protested the outrageous bill from the hospital.

The hospital then gave her family a bill of Sh858, 355.

The hospital has since detained the body Matilda until the full payment is settled.
