Hours after the nurses at the Shalom Community Hospital in Athi River were arrested over negligence following a directive from Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua, the woman who gave birth on the floor of the facility insists that the medics did nothing wrong.
She insisted that the nurses were doing their job while dismissing claims that they neglected her.
In an interesting twist of events, the woman now blames the man who recorded and shared the video with the online community. She spoke during an exclusive interview with Citizen TV.
The remarks come amid fierce criticism of the nurses and the management of the facility. The woman insisted that the nurses could not do anything since she had arrived late.
“The case is different from what has been reported. I arrived at the hospital at the last minute while in labour. There was nothing much that could be done. There was no negligence at all,” she said in part.
Mutua has also revealed that the facility risks closure following the surfacing of the disturbing video.
The county boss insisted that he will not tolerate doctors and other experts who abscond duty as well as fail to live up to the expectations of the taxpayer.
The governor has promised to deal with doctors who will not perform their duties with diligence.
