KNH restricts public access in the facility


The Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) management is now implementing strict controls to prevent crowding and facilitate social distancing in the facility as part of efforts to contain the coronavirus.

KNH Chief Executive Officer Dr. Evanson Kamuri, in a public notice released on Monday, said only staff and authorized personnel will henceforth be allowed access to the hospital.

“Only family and relatives of patients who have been expressly contacted by the hospital will be allowed access for purposes of facilitating specific requests pertaining to patient care among them blood/organ donations, payment of bills, discharge of patients etc,” he stated.


Additionally, all persons allowed access to the hospital must wash their hands using alcohol-based hand sanitizers and use protective gear provided by the facility.
