Nairobi Women’s Hospital’s Greed Exposed in Damning WhatsApp Messages

Nairobi Women's hospital

Ever visited a private hospital and made to do a procedure that you found unnecessary despite lack of your background in medicine but went on ahead since you thought the Doctor knows best, well, it is true, the Doctor knows best on how to mint your money.

A damning revelation on how hospitals are using their patients as cash cows might have more Kenyans dying in fear of visiting health facilities and being exposed to more illnesses through unnecessary tests and admissions.

You visit a hospital and instead of the Doctor analyzing your symptoms and sending you for the right tests, the Doctor weighs your financial capability or your insurance and decides what illness you must be suffering from.

“Uko na insurance gani?’ (Which insurance are you using?) this question is often used to help the doctor decide whether the illness you are suffering from is chronic and the more financially able you are, the sicker you are likely to make.

How one will visit a health facility with malaria symptoms and inform the Doctor that they had traveled to malaria-prone regions but instead be sent for a CT Scan is evidence enough that our private facilities are chocking with greed.

Leaked messages that are being shared on WhatsApp will make you realize what a tool you have been and sadly, this does not exempt children, as alleged Nairobi Women’s Hospital staff are pushed to increase the number of patients admitted.

The Whatsapp group named Team Nakuru Hyrax shows messages of the Nairobi Women’s Hospital in Nakuru CEO Dr.Felix Wanjala ordering the doctors to increase the numbers, “Team we are starting on very bad numbers, lock discharges”.

One staff of the Nairobi Women’s Hospital in Nakuru going by the name Atemi is reprimanded on the group for discharging 9 patients by the hospital CEO Dr.Felix  Wanjala and is asked to revoke 5 discharges.

What good reason would a Doctor have to keep a patient admitted other than the lie that the patient is still unwell and give unnecessary medication to support the theory? Medication that the patient has to pay for!

“Ruku, yesterday you discharged 14, today you planned 12, this is not sustainable. Urgent fix!” Dr. Wanjala of Nairobi Women’s Hospital is quoted in the job group…how are Ruku supposed to minimize the number of discharges?
