Residents storm hospital

12 April 2013, 15:06 Oduor Omondi

There was drama at Ahero sub-District Hospital in Nyando District Thursday evening after members of the public stormed the facility protesting against the death of three people in quick succession within the last three weeks.

Carrying twigs and placards, the irate residents accused the hospital authorities of negligence which they said has led to the untimely death of many patients admitted at the facility.

Samuel Pedo, a relative of one of the latest victims, blamed the hospital’s clinical officers for the death of his nephew.

Pedo said his nephew, James Omusi Odino, 51, was involved in a motorbike accident and rushed to the facility for treatment, but the clinical officers failed to attend to him saying they were ‘allergic to blood’.

Following the death, Pedo appealed to the Medical Officer of Health (MOH), Dr. Mary Obara to order for a thorough investigation into what he termed as “a careless attitude” by medics who are expected to prioritise life saving.

Members of the public told the press about a similar but earlier death where a child was knocked down by a motorbike and rushed to the facility but passed on under similar circumstances attributed to negligence.

In the third incident, they claimed, a mother who had labor pains was denied a chance to deliver safely under the watchful eyes of the medics for having failed to attend her pre-natal clinics and subsequently lost her infant.

Nyando District Commissioner Isaiah Tonui said he had not been informed of the latest incident but promised to take up the matter with the MOH.

The hospital authorities however refused to comment on the issue only saying that things had been blown out of proportion.
