Shalom Hospital, the facility in which a seven-month old baby died due to an overdose of morphine injection, has been violating several patient care procedures.

This is according to a report released by the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Board.

According to the report, the hospital failed to hire senior doctors for specialised care, while an inexperienced clinical officer is running the patient area alone.

The report also revealed that the nurse in charge and the nurse on duty at the Shalom Hospital were unaware of coverage roster.

The two-page document also lists a series of breach of patient care guidelines that may have put the lives of patients seeking care at the hospital at risk.

Shalom Hospital was shut by the Machakos County Government last week after the death of a seven month old baby who was given an overdose of morphine injection.
