Mbagathi Hospital reveals why mother walked with dead baby for 5km

Mbagathi Hospital has admitted that inefficiencies in its operations led to Immaculate Auma trekking to city mortuary with the body of her dead baby last week.

The hospital, however, maintained that Auma’s baby did not die at the facility but was instead pronounced dead on arrival.

Yesterday, Nairobi Health Executive Charles Kerich, who was speaking at Mbagathi, said that Auma arrived in the hospital at 9.45am with her six-month-old infant who was declared dead by a pediatric clinical officer.

According to reports by Standard Media Mr Kerich said that according to hospital policy, Auma was referred to the police to file a notification. He added that she left before the hospital could assist her to move the body.

“A nurse at the hospital offered to assist Immaculate to organise for transportation to the police station and onward to the mortuary. However, while the hospital was organising for a vehicle, the mother was discovered to have left with the body of her child,” said Kerich.
