- 55-year-old Ann Ng'ang'a woke up from a month-long coma while receiving treatment at KNH
- Her family had witnessed her health deteriorate slowly in the past three months
- She was in a private hospital before being moved to KNH where her condition improved
Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) is on the headlines yet again but this time with some good news.
This is after an extraordinary incidence that happened two weeks ago, when a 55-year-old Ann Ng'ang'a woke up from a month-long coma while receiving treatment at the facility.
Jane Kuria, a sister to the patient revealed how the family was elated with the news having witnessed her health deteriorate slowly in the past three months.
"When it reaches that point of hearing doctors say she is really in a bad position, is time to let her go, sometimes you accept maybe this is what we have to do," said Kuria.
Ng'ang'a, a teacher by profession had been admitted at a private hospital before being moved to KNH. According to the doctors, the change of environment and treatment seemed to have improved her medical condition.
"We found she had a lot of organ dysfunction and we had to support most of her organs. We successfully did that and she came out of her coma," said Ann Mugera, the Head of ICU at KNH.
"I have been in ICU for long, 16 years. The ones who have been in coma for long did not make it. This is the most exciting and positive thing I have ever seen," said Esther Murunga, another ICU nurse.
The hospital which has been on the spotlight recently for all the wrong reasons could undoubtedly be banking on this prodigy to redeem itself.
