Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) has announced that a 53-year-old patient went missing from the facility on Monday.
The Hospital explained that the patient who had been brought by the family went missing during the admission process.
“The 53-year-old male patient was brought to the hospital by his family and upon review by our emergency team, was recommended for admission,” the statement by KNH CEO Dr. Evanson Kamuri read.
The patient’s family reportedly left him under the hospital’s care in order to beat the daily dusk to dawn curfew.
Preliminary investigations established the patient left the Accident and Emergency area pending his transfer to the ward.
KNH said they immediately contacted the patient’s next of kin and notified the police.
“Our priority now is to find the patient and connect him with his family and provide appropriate healthcare, we remain committed to being a world-class patient-centered specialized care hospital,” KNH added.
