Kenyatta National Hospital CEO and his comical threat

Posted by Popular Ombudsman on May 17, 2009

Dr. Jotham Micheni has threatened to expel a patient with MDRTB, Mr.John Makau into wider society. KNH is the largest referral hospital in the region. The question is if Makau goes to the wider society, does that provide a solution? This would create a bigger number of similar patients and more referrals to KNH anyway. Will it be any easier for Dr. Micheni then?

One would have hoped that since 2007, a special isolation unit could have been built given the billions of shillings being squandered each month! what Dr. Micheni should be talking of is the need to have a facility to handle such patients safely in Kenya not these comical threats! That is the way forward.
