2 babies die after allegedly running out of Oxygen
The Kiambu county level 4 is on the spot after two babies aged 1 and 3 months died at the hospital’s paedriatic ward due to negligence. The infants are said to have died after the ward attendants took more than 10 minutes to refill the oxygen cylinders after running out of gas used to aid their breathing for the new borns.
The hospital has however maintained that the two babies died out of natural causes and not as an act of negligence by staff. The deaths happened barely hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta visited the hospital and launched new set of medical equipment.
