Kenyatta National Hospital CEO Lily Koros was on Friday sent on compulsory leave.
Health CS Sicily Kariuki announced the decision following the incident where doctors at the hospital performed a brain surgery on a wrong patient.
Koros and an officer in charge of clinical affairs were sent home to pave way for investigations.
KNH suspended the admission rights of the Neurosurgery Registrar and issued him with a show-cause letter.
Koros said on Thursday that they took action following the incident in line with the hospital’s procedures.
