In a statement signed by KNH Chief Executive Officer Lily Koros, it said "the hospital deeply regrets this event and has done all it can to ensure the safety and well-being of the patient in question.” The medical administrator came under scrutiny on January 19, 2018 after posts about new mothers being raped by morticians at KNH went viral on a Facebook page Buyer Beware. A post by Ms. Mildred Owiso explained how she witnessed a new mother escape rape attempts from an attacker within the hospital. According to Mildred, the victim only escaped after her screams caught the attention of others, scaring the attacker away. “Security is a big issue, especially for mothers whose kids are in the nursery. Apparently, they need to go breastfeed their babies after every two hours or so. The nurseries are at the ground floor, and the mothers on third floor. Today, I met a lady who was nearly raped,” she said.
