Health Cabinet Secretary (CS) Sicily Kariuki on Sunday ordered an investigation into The Nairobi Hospital after a patient was allegedly stuck in a lift for more than an hour.
In a statement, outgoing CS said the patient was being transferred from the Intensive Care Unit to the High Dependency Unit.
“The hospital administration failed to find an immediate solution to the grave situation,” Ms Kariuki said.
The CS said she had been informed that this was not the first such case at the hospital.
It was not immediately clear what the cause of the prolonged elevator jam was.
