Below are some of the reactions from Kenyans

@rhouzieosore Atleast good news after that bad ordeal let it be a lesson to this nurses .
If they can’t work let them go drink tea in their villages, nursing is a calling let those who decide to chose such a career know that u hv to hv passion for the Job . Wakakunywe chai vizuri sasa.

@mwemsjo :I have never heard an admitting hospital give such a flimsy excuse. I don’t even know what they were treating her for.

I sent her to Nairobi Women’s the following day. Blood tests and an x-ray revealed pneumonia. Very useless hospital. Funga Shalom.

@abdiweli04 :Arrest the nurses on duty plus the owner, lock them up and throw away the keys. They did the worst to a woman giving birth. Totally unacceptable.

This is not the first incidence of neglect in Kenyan hospitals.
