See what questions
a doctor would ask.
An inquiry cleared a Nairobi doctor of professional misconduct after it was found that he did not improperly treat a male patient. The patient died after two weeks in hospital and his family alleges that the man received late and poor diagnosis as well as being abandoned by his doctor. They claim he should have done more than the lumbar puncture and symptomatic treatment with medication. They also say that he went on holidays during the patients hospital stay and left him with less competent doctors. The inquiry however found that the doctorís actions were appropriate given the evidence he had to work with.
