Nairobi Hospital locks out top plastic surgeon Khainga

share on:

Kenya’s leading plastic surgeon has been barred from practising at the Nairobi Hospital.

In an internal memo to staff in wards, theatres, ICT and security, director of medical services and research, the hospital said Prof Stanley Khainga is no longer allowed to carry out his practice at the hospital.

The suspension comes after Khainga accused the hospital of negligence leading to the death of June Wanza in June this year. Wanza received breast enlargement surgery at Khainga’s Surgeoderm Clinic in Kilimani, but developed complications days later. She sought help at Nairobi Hospital and died there.

 “This is to inform you that Prof. Stanley O. K (consultant plastic and reconstructive surgeon) admitting rights at the hospital were suspended with effect from Tuesday October 8, 2018 until further notice,” the memo seen by the Star said.

“Therefore wards and theatres have been directed not to admit or book patients under Khainga, security office told to deactivate the parking card, and his vehicle’s number plate identification while ICT department has been instructed to deactivate ‘Kranium’ report access.”

On Friday, Khainga told the Star that he was not aware of the action taken by the Nairobi Hospital, saying the matter is in court and also under investigation by KMPDB. “I’m not aware. ..they have their own issues,” he told the Star on the phone.

Wanza’s husband, Joseph Mulupi, in his testimony at the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board, which is probing the death, said a bacterial infection could have eaten up her intestines following the operation, adding the management of her late wife at Nairobi Hospital was wanting.
