Edna Nyarangi, a nurse from Shalom Medical Hospital was arrested alongside Thomas Ndolo, after a video of a woman giving birth on the floor went viral.
Ndolo the administrator was arretsed for hiring unqualified staff among them Edna.
The incident was exposed over the Easter weekend in a video recorded by a man who had taken his wife to the hospital.
According to the man, a woman in labour was brought into the hospital on a wheelchair and three nurses who were at the facility were notified that it was an emergency case, but they did not bother to attend to her.
Mr. Ndolo was taken in for alleged negligence at the facility, while the nurse is a quack.
Below are some of the reactions from Kenyans
@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.
