A Nairobi resident Edwin Onyango has moved to court seeking to have the Nairobi Women’s Hospital release her ailing wife Rosemary Atieno Onyango, in order to take her to a public hospital for treatment.
He’s seeking court intervention fearing that his wife’s health is deteriorating so first that may cause lose of life.
According to Rosemary’s husband, the hospital was scheduled to conduct a meningitis test on his wife then be transferred to Kenyatta hospital for further medication, but the Womens’ Hospital instead admitted her.
Edwin Onyango argues that several tests were done on Rosemary without his consent adding that the hospital has so far declined to release her until the 40,000 shillings bill is paid.
Edwin in his sworn affidavit claims he had offered to pay 8,300 for the meningitis test and not for any admission fee and other tests that were done by the hospital.
He wants the court to direct Nairobi Women’s Hospital to release his wife since she needs to undergo dialysis at Kenyatta National Hospital.
High Court Judge Mumbi Ngugi declined to issue orders certified the matter urgent and directed that the matter be served to the hospital and thereafter inter-party hearing on the 26th of this month.
