Investigation intensifies as Senate orders identity of the doctor who attended to the late baby travis.
Investigation intensifies as senate now wants the identity of the doctor who last attended to baby Travis revealed.
Earlier this month, Baby Travis made headlines after doctors delayed his head surgery citing excessive loss of blood and poor clotting.
The senate committee, led by Uasin Gishu senator, Jackson Mandago, demanded that KNH should reveal the details of the doctor who was accused of demanding a deposit from a patient, instead of helping first.
Mother to the late baby Travis, Judy Muthoni, claimed that for her son to be attended to, the doctor required her to deposit a sum of 20,000.
Muthoni narrated,”The first doctor shouted at me and asked me to pay Ksh20,500. At the time, the baby kept on asking for water because he was thirsty.”
Mandago has promised to get to the bottom of the matter.
Mandago said,”It is unimaginable that a patient walked into a referral hospital and waited for 14 hours. We expected that the hospital should have done better.”
“The parents might not remember the identity of the doctors but we will follow with KNH leadership; they cannot say they do not know them,” he added.
Echoeing his words, Kiambu Senator Karungo Thang’wa stated that the medical team at Thika Level V hospital also will be brought to book.
