Nurses on Tuesday rejected the Kenya Medical and Practitioners and Dentists Board’s report which blamed nurses on duty for the KNH surgery mix-up.
KNUN Secretary General Seth Panyako said it was not nurses’ fault that a patient ended up being misidentified at the facility.
“Patient identification starts at the records department. The first person responsible is the records department,” Panyako said.
Last week, the medical board cleared Dr Hudson Ng’ang’a and Dr Mose Moraa but indicted nurse Mary Wahome whose competency it said should be tested by the nurses’ council.
