Doc­tors’ walk­out costs lives, talks ur­gently needed

The Star (Kenya) - - News Busi­ness -

The doc­tors and nurses strike is un­called for, against hu­man­ity and must be con­demned by all. Pa­tients are dy­ing since they have been left unat­tended, and there are no doc­tors to at­tend to those be­ing brought in. This should have been averted if the medics ad­hered to their pro­fes­sional ethics and code of con­duct. They should in­stead use proper chan­nels to re­solve their griev­ances. Ne­go­ti­a­tions are an al­ter­na­tive. It is time the play­ers in the health sec­tor came to­gether to come up with an am­i­ca­ble so­lu­tion to avoid more deaths.
