A week after the arrest of two doctors of Baho International Hospital over the death of a 54 year old female patient, Rwanda’s Ministry of Health has ordered the shutdown of Baho International Hospital due to the death of a patient who had checked in for minor surgery.
This comes months after the private health service provider was strongly criticised for its poor hygiene and lack of customer care towards its patients.
The reaction prompted the Ministry of Health to carry out a quick assessment into the complaints after which the hospital management admitted its shortcomings, asked for forgiveness and promised to uphold best practices and improve on areas of concern.
The Rwanda Investigations Bureau Spokesperson Thierry Murangira said there is an ongoing investigation about the incident and he said that a few arrests have been made:
“Yes! RIB has arrested Dr. Gaspard Ntahonkiriye (Gynecologist) and Dr. Alfred Mugemanshuro (Anesthesiologist) from BAHO International Hospital as part of the ongoing investigation into the death of a female patient (54 year) who died on 09 September, 2021.”
