The Nairobi Metropolitan Services has Saturday confirmed that officers from the National Police Service will augment the provision of security at the Pumwani Hospital, Mbagathi Hospital, Mama Lucy Hospital and Mutuini Hospital in Dagoretti to prevent disruption of services.
The security team has also since been changed and a Customer Care desk set up after a mother delivered at the gates of Pumwani Hospital.
The Director of Health Services Dr Josephine Kibaru-Mbae through a statement said that NMS regrets the incident and commends the nurses who quickly came to assist the patient.
The Nairobi health workers have at the same time ended their go-slow after a return to work formula was agreed on by both parties.
Dr Mbae in the statement also confirmed that the mother and child are both well and were discharged on 18th September 2020.
“We take this opportunity to apologise to all Kenyans and our mothers in particular for this unfortunate incident,” the statement read in part.
The statement by NMS comes shortly after a video making rounds on social media appears to show a woman delivering right outside the Pumwani Hospital gate.
