A woman is seeking for justice after doctors in Nairobi Hospital misdiagnosed her nearly costing her her life.
Benta Opande went to the hospital in May 2017 for a minor surgery which ended up leaving her worse than she was.
The hospital still demanded that she pays Sh. 2.4 Million shillings after the botched surgery. Benta was forced to go to India to remove screws that the doctors from Nairobi hospital had placed in her spinal cord.
The doctor told Benta that he had also suffered the same condition and had undergone treatment in Kenya and was okay after a surgery.
The Neurosurgeon told told that he also suffered backache similar to condition and had successfully been operated on in Kenya. He confirmed to Benta that he has screws fixed on his spine and his life was much better after the surgery.#JusticeForBentaOpande pic.twitter.com/3Y7tD6E6Ho
