In a weird incident in Kenya, four medics cut open the skull of the wrong patient at the Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi.

Other users called on the Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki to overhaul the entire management at the referral hospital.

The four medics were reported to have conducted the surgery on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 prompting the hospital administration to send them on compulsory leave.

Just recently, KNH was hit by "baby theft" scandal after a woman managed to sneak out of the facility with someone's baby.

An investigation by the Daily Nation newspaper revealed that two men had been taken to the hospital last Sunday.

The wrong patient needed treatment for a swelling on the head but ended up on the table for an open brain surgery meant to remove a blood clot from the brain of another patient.

Surgeons only discovered the mistake after failing to find a clot in the brain of the man whose head they had opened.

The hospital's chief operating officer, Lily Koros, issued a statement announcing the suspension of four medics who were at work on that night.

Social media users have expressed shock that such an incident could have been allowed to happen.

"The hospital deeply regrets the mix-up and has done all it can to ensure the safety and well-being of the patient".

Kenyans online are protesting the endless series of blunder at Kenyatta National Hospital, calling for the Ministry of Health to overhaul the entire management.

The board regulating medical practice says such a mix-up is a first in the country.

"The surgery was done on the wrong patient mainly because of wrong patient mainly because of wrong patient labelling by the ward staff", the doctors said. They were all given show cause letters.

On Thursday, Koros sought to assure the public that the patient whose head was unnecessarily cut into, was in recovery and "progressing well".
