The user, Koskey Kip had posted on Facebook accusing the hospital of delays in patient attendance.

Kip, in the post, claimed that he had stayed with a patient at the hospital for several hours waiting for his patient to be taken to the ward.

“My patient is still there, the big issue is cover up some nurse are sleeping instead of being on job, kindly address the matter. Arwasa is sleeping on his job. The triage area is missing the attendant which is wrong,” reads part of the Facebook users post.

In reply to the post, the hospital management, however, termed the claims as false.

“The patient shown has just arrived from Turkana County, a referral from there. Shown in the images are Turkana County driver and nurse handing over the patient to MTRH staff who are fully awake,”  reads the reply from MTRH.
