Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki has sent Kenyatta National Hospital boss Lily Koros on compulsory leave.

Just recently, KNH was hit by "baby theft" scandal after a woman managed to sneak out of the facility with someone's baby.

"I wish to pronounce myself on this matter by appointing in acting capacity Dr Mutie and Dr Ogech; both competent professionals who understand the systems in this hospital to take over and support the board complete the investigations which I have directed be conducted immediately".

There was, however, "a horror mix-up of tags", which resulted in the wrong man being wheeled into theatre and his skull opened. Reports indicate that one was in need of nursing and medication to heal a trauma swelling in his head while the second had a blood clot in his brain.

Surgeons only discovered the mistake after failing to find a clot in the brain of the man whose head they had opened.

Some on social media have expressed outrage over the incident.

"The hospital deeply regrets this event and has done all it can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the patient in question", read the statement from the hospital, adding the patient was "in recovery and progressing well". "The second patient, who was scheduled to go for surgery is, fortunately, also stable, he has been put on treatment and is under watch".

She did not disclose the identity of the patients, only saying that the hospital will "advise on the cause of action to be taken".

They said the nurse who prepared the patient for surgery should be held accountable for wrongly labelling the patient.

Doctors in Nairobi have been suspended for performing brain surgery on the wrong patient.

In a miracle of some sort, the Nation was informed that both patients were in good condition, and that the one who had a clot might not undergo surgery because he had improved significantly.
