By September 24th 2019, my grandmother had been in the hospital for 9 weeks and she had lost a lot of her energy in the process. She was then moved into isolation due to the persistence of her infections.
Throughout her time in hospital my mother made sure there was always a family member present for her care. The nurses have many patients to attend to and you can never be certain that they will respond to her needs. A problem in this particular hospital.
A hospital signified a place where nurses and doctors did everything they could to provide care to patients to see them recover. My grandma went into hospital for aide and never came out.
This is a call to healthcare system in Kenya. The attitudes nurses and doctors have need change. Patients should not require family/friends to ensure they aren't being ignored.
