THE Kisii government has dismissed media reports that there is a shortage of drugs at the Kisii Level Five Hospital. Hospital CEO Dr Enock Ondari said no patient had been turned away for lack of medicine. He said the hospital received Sh7 million worth drugs from the Kenya Medical Supplies Agency.
Speaking to the Star on the phone yesterday, Ondari said the hospital has enough supply of drugs. He said no patient has been turned away because of lack of drugs.
"In fact, quinine is not used as a first line drug in the treatment of malaria. Even in cases where some prescribed drugs are not available in government supplies, patients can access the same drugs in our pharmacy at a cost," Ondari said.
