The family of baby Dylan cries for justice.
The chief editor of this site has received the information that has been confirmed with photos of the below occurrence.
So this is what happened.
My nephew, baby Dylan who is 5 weeks old, started vomiting while suckling on Saturday night. The dad, my cousin now, noticed and decided to rush the baby to a nearby facility.
The facility looked at the baby and referred them to Kihara Level 4 Hospital in Gachie. Getting there, they received the baby and demanded that the normal procedure of admission is done which my cousin did and they were admitted.
The baby is placed on drip after the doctor examines him. So, my cousin goes home, leaves the wife and baby but goes to check on them in the morning.
On getting there on Sunday morning, he notices that the drip place they had injected the baby had bled seriously and in fact had administered drip through his left foot and he was put under oxygen. In addition, the doctor was heard quarreling the nurse in charge about the dosage of the drip she had put on the baby. My cousin went to ask the nurse what the problem was since mtoto amewekwa drip, the nurse responds “Si nyinyi ndio mlileta mtoto mnajua?”.
At that point, confusion sets in.
The doctor, a Dr. Wambui, who was in charge at the time, becomes busy to see my cousin to inform him what they are treating the baby for. Around 10am the baby stabilizes. Still at this point they haven’t told us what is ailing our baby.
They had the chance to refer the baby to Kiambu Level 5 or any other better facility but they didn’t and the ambulance just sat there idling.
Around 3pm, we still have no information about what happened to baby Dylan because my cousin gets a call from a patient who was near my cousins wife telling him to come and check on his baby as there was something terribly wrong.
My cousin’s wife is there following with the nurses on what is going on but still no information is given to her as well. The nurse just called in the morgue attendant to come and pick the body. My cousin gets there, and is asked to follow the body of his son to the morgue.
We demand justice for baby Dylan, the negligence at the Kihara Sub County hospital has to come to an end.
Rest in peace Baby Dylan, may the family find justice and peace.
