Kenyatta National Hospital nurses have downed tools protesting an attack on their colleague on Saturday.
Kenya National Union of Nurses chairman Seth Panyako said they will use the opportunity to lobby for proper management of KNH.
“Nurses have already withdrawn their services on grounds of security challenges at the hospital,” Panyako said.
A nurse at the KNH emergency room was attacked by a woman whose child had died at the hospital.
The nurse had gone to inform the said woman of the death of her son when the incident happened.
KNUN vice chairman Moses Chirchir said the attacker strangled the nurse leaving her unconscious.
The nurse, who is receiving treatment at the facility, is lined up to see an ENT specialist to check the extent of the neck injuries.
