NAKURU, Kenya 29th May 2015 – The County Government of Nakuru will hasten the expansion of trauma centers in Naivasha sub-county hospital and the Nakuru Provincial General Hospital to accommodate the growing number of trauma counselling cases.

Speaking when he toured the Naivasha Sub-County Hospital, Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua said that the trauma center in the hospital is overcrowded with two patients sharing a bed resulting from the big number of people who are referred there from as far as Laikipia County.

‘All accident victims in the region and even neighboring counties are normally referred here which has contributed to the large number of patients in this center. The construction of a trauma center in PGH Nakuru, will decongest this center and accommodate the increasing number of trauma patients.’ he said.

On the cholera outbreak, the governor assured the county residents that the government has managed and contained the disease through strategies that have been effective.

He said residents from the affected areas as well as prone areas have been given preventive medicines as well as water treatment tablets.

‘We have also carried out civic education on how to avoid cholera spread through basic hygiene because the outbreak was caused mainly by consumption and use of contaminated water and food. Residents have responded well,’ he added.

Mbugua also visited the new cholera ward in the hospital where one family of four are still under treatment for cholera.

He said the family members are in stable condition and that they were the last out of the seven reported cholera patients in Naivasha.
