Mbagathi Hospital Nurses Strike over Lack of Training to Handle COVID-19

Mbagathi Hospital

Nurses at the Mbagathi Hospital are on a go-slow, citing “lack of training” to prepare them to handle coronavirus patients, a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta confirmed that the country had two more cases of Covid-19.

According to the Hospital’s chairman George Osewe, only a few nurses at the isolated block have been trained on handling Coronavirus patients, so the rest of the nurses feel unsafe and unprepared in the event they have to handle an infected person.

“Personal responsibility is very important and it is good they have come out and demonstrated their grievances by the go slow. You cannot just train a few nurses and leave the rest just because they are not attached to the isolated block. They are also humans and cannot be exposed to the danger of contracting the virus,” he said.
