The health workers in Nakuru General Hospital have said they will continue with their strike despite the call by the Minister of Public Health to Prof Anyang’o Nyong’o to end the strike and report to work as usual.
The strike of health workers continues amid the state of patients at the PGH is warranting and highly compromised as no services are rendered to patients who are in the hospital or those who are referred there from other hospitals for treatment.
Efforts of the journalist to visit the patients ward were futile after the Medical Superintendent John Murima declined to allow them the access citing the situation is worse.
“The situation in the patients wards are in a deplorable condition and it will not be good if we allow the member of press to disseminate the eyesore conditions in there,” Murima noted.
At the PGH premises, hundreds of workers boycotted their duties asking the government to honour their fist agreement before they embark on the current negotiation asking them to resume their duties.
