The baby's mother blamed the hospital for being slow while attending to his son, thus causing his death. However, Dr. Kamuri denied the claims and explained to the Senate Health Committee probing the death that the baby could not have been taken directly to the theatre because he had bled a lot.
Doctors needed to stabilize him first before taking him to the operating room. The baby was first given blood.
Dr. Kamuri said that doctors could only take the child to the operating room once they were assured about his condition. He said there are CCTV footages to prove that doctors did their best to save the baby's life.
“We have CCTV cameras. You can take a look and see exactly what happened from the time the baby arrived at the hospital,” he said.
The hospital CEO alleged that the baby's mother is being dishonest and called upon further investigations into the incident by an independent body to unravel the truth
The Health Committee chairperson Jackson Mandago said they will counter-check the claims made by the mother and those of KNH before making any conclusion.
