The Kisii Teaching and referral hospital has been on the spot recently due to poor service delivery. Patients have suffered in the deadly rotten hospital but none seems to care. Media has been seen as an enemy when they expose what poor tax payers go through.
On Monday night a fatal accident occurred in Ikenye, Masimba leaving three people dead and one seriously injured. A close relative to the injured patient bitterly wrote and i quote.
“Disappointed with KRTH ..following the accident that left three people dead at Masimba at 7pm..those who were critically injured were rushed to KRTH among them was my in law..We had to wait at the emergency for 2 hours before we were attended. Reason being: Inadequate normal saline water. At 9pm doctors were already asleep…one had to wait for 15min for doctors at the X ray room to wake up. At ward three overnight there was no electricity ..imagine taking care of a patient in darkness throughout the night ..The only song at the pharmacy.. Hii dawa hakuna enda nje,”
On Tuesday morning information leaked to The Daily Clock that Admitted patients are sent to purchase utensils including Plates, Cups,Spoons etc.
At the Hospital entrance corridor we came across a Woman with a patient sitting on the floor and she said they have been chased from the hospital for unknown reason.She claims they were only told “Toka Hapa”.
The woman who requested anonymity said the first requirement for a patient to be admitted you purchase your own utensils for the Hospital does not provide any.
She further says nurses will chase you to purchase medicine depending on your appearance. If you dress like a rich person they wont give you any medicine from the Hospital.
