Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Hospital Casualty Wing Under Construction Collapses


Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH) casualty wing that is under construction has collapsed although no casualties have been reported.

Last month, services at the facility were paralyzed as nurses and medics went on strike. Inpatient and outpatient services were also affected forcing residents to opt for services in other healthcare facilities.

The National Construction Authority (NCA) has since ordered the evacuation of all patients after the collapse.

According to NCA Regional Coordinator Eng. Amos Musa, investigations into the cause of the collapse have commenced with the intention to ascertain what exactly took place.

Ultimately, JOOTRH Chief Executive Officer Dr. George Rae told a local publication that all the 60 patients who were in the ward have been transferred temporarily to other sections of the hospital.
