Saturday, August 1, 2020 – Renowned Nairobi lawyer, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, has exposed the deep rot in Kenyan hospitals revealing a grim picture of how Kenyan doctors and nurses are treating COVID 19 patients.
In a post on Thursday, Ahmednasir said being a COVID patient in Kenya is the worst thing to happen to anybody because doctors and nurses are treating patients worse than lepers.
Ahmednasir said a friend of his was treated like a leper when he tested positive for coronavirus.
He said Kenyans doctors and nurses are unqualified and they lack the proper experience to deal with COVID 19.
“How are doctors/nurses treating/handling COVID 19 patients in Kenyan hospitals?.. a lawyer friend’s experience is harrowing… the stigma, lack of training and right tools create a situation where patients are treated worse than lepers.in some societies in ancient times @MOH_Kenya,” Ahmednasir said.
“Getting admitted to a hospital is the BIGGEST problem… even nurses at the admission desks in all the hospitals the patient sought admission ran away…. admission through a PRIVATE arrangement by a personal doctor saved the day.,” Ahmednasir added.
