Is Aga Khan University Hospital In Nairobi Cutting Costs By Hiring Quack Doctors?

Shawn Bolouki, Chief Executive Officer, Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi

Hi Cyprian,

After reading what a patient underwent while at Coronary Care Unit (CCU) at Aga Khan Hospital, I wonder what is happening at the casualty section of the hospital.

Here is a preview:-

Today I went to the Aga Khan clinic at Prestige Plaza with a cough that has lasted for more than 2 weeks. I explained to the “doctor” that in the last three days my symptoms seem to get worse; I have chest pains, headache and I can’t sleep at night due to a very heavy chest (I feel obstructed).

The “doctor” requested for a full blood count which showed a viral infection.

I suggested to the “doctor” that with a lapse of more than 2 weeks and more severe symptoms, a bacterial infection could be at play. What she told me left me wondering if she is a real doctor or a quack. I mean what dis she means by, “respiratory viruses can even take 21 days. If you want we can do an x-ray”

Clearly, this “doctor” has heard of Ebola Virus whose incubation period is 21 days, at the corridors and has no idea its not a respiratory but a hemorrhagic fever virus.

Sad to say, I still have to look for a professional doctor elsewhere after spending my entire morning at this clinic only to leave with paracetamol and anti histamine ?

A doctor responds

Most coughs and flu are caused by Viral infections including influenza etc. There is no indication for antibiotics as the body immunity is able to sort them out. You only need cough suppressant . A full blood count isn’t diagnostic, but having raised white blood cells may signify a bacterial picture and hence indication for antibiotics. The antibiotic resistance level has increased world wide due to irrational use of antibiotics. I feel the complainant is misinformed and unfair to call the doctor a quack.
