Kenyatta National Hospital has revoked suspension letters it gave to four staff implicated in a recent botched brain surgery.
The hospital’s board on Thursday said it had left investigations into the mishap, which saw the skull of a wrong patient opened, to the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board.
The decision was made following KNH board’s meeting with Health Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki and Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Board (KMPDB).
The hospital had sent home a register surgeon, an anaesthetist and two nurses following a public outcry and pressure from leaders.
“Effective immediately, the board will not longer engage in any disciplinary matters as we will leave it to the KMPDB,” said Mr Mark Bor, chairman of the KNH board.
