KMPDC Warns Three Private Medical Facilities Over Non-accredited ICU Homebased Care Adverts

The Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council (KMPDC) has slapped three medical facilities with Ksh0.5 million each.

The three reportedly lured Kenyans through adverts offering Intensive Care Unit (ICU) services for home-based care Covid-19 patients.

The union dismissed Apex Home Healthcare, Utunzaji Home and Nursing Care, and Wholistic Nursing Care who had claimed that they could offer such services.

According to the medical union, ICU services call for specialists who should handle such. ICU attention is offered to seriously ill patients, who require specialized medical care.

"Intensive Care Unit caters to patients with severe or life-threatening illnesses or injuries, which require constant care and supervision from a multidisciplinary medical team," noted KMPDC boss Daniel Yumbya on Friday.

The body further warned the public against being trapped in services by the three unacknowledged facilities. The three were slammed for running false adverts aimed at milking money from unsuspecting Kenyans.

The three were also required to flag off all adverts posted, and pay a fine of half a million each, with a fortnight from today.
