The death of baby Travis Maina caused an uproar which put the Kenyatta National Hospital on the spot for not attending the child with the case being presented to the Senate Health Committee where the hospital is under scrutiny.
Previously, Judy Muthoni revealed that she was asked to make a deposit so that her son could be taken for surgery which she never had at the moment.
According to the Star news reports, the KNH CEO revealed that the Ksh 20,000 cash deposit that Judy Muthoni alleged to have been told to make was a made up story as the hospital never asked for such amount.
KNH CEO revealed that the only amount she was asked to pay was for processing for admission which was not such a hefty amount.
“We do not ask for money especially for emergency cases because we look at their survival. Most of my clients do not pay, and won't pay even after treatment. There is some Sh7 billion which has not been paid to the hospital as of now,” Kamuri said.
Do you believe in this defence for the hospital?
