NMS clarifies incident regarding mother who delivered outside Pumwani Hospital gates

The Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) has regretted the incident where a mother delivered right in front of the gates of the Pumwani Maternity Hospital, after neglect.

The video of the woman has gone viral on social media, sparking anger among Kenyans.

According to NMS Director of Health Services Dr. Josephine Kibaru Mbae, the unfortunate event took place on Sunday, September 13, which is two days after nurses downed their tools.

So what happened?

Dr. Kibaru says that on the fateful day, the security guard denied the patient access to the premises.

A nurse was, however, notified of the happenings and rushed to the scene to assist the mother to deliver her baby before admitting her into a ward.

NMS has commended the nurse who rushed to help the patient, confirming that the mother and the child are well and were discharged on Friday, September 18.

The security team of the hospital has since been changed and a customer care desk set up.

“Going forward, officers from the National Police Service will augment the provision of security at the Pumwani Hospital, Mbagathi Hospital, Mama Lucy Hospital, and Mutuini Hopsital tp prevent disruption of services,” says NMS.
