The nurse has revealed that the children at the hospital are forced to sleep three or four of them in one hospital bed. The caregivers of the children in the wards are forced to stand until morning due to lack of sufficient seats for all of them. Some of the caregivers complained alot saying they have developed pains in their lower limps since they are forced to sleep while standing.
Mothers in some cubicles at the paediatric ward were forced to lay down mattresses on the floor to stay with their admitted children. According to the nurse, she has directed the blame to the high number of patients being admitted at the hospital. The nurse also added that the resources at the facility are scarce and at some times the patients are forced to sleep four of them on one bed. One mother claimed that since she brought her child at the hospital one week ago, she has not been able to sleep well. According to K24 Digital, their efforts to reach Kenyatta National Hospital CEO were fruitless since he never picked their call not answered their message.
