Nursing Services

The Nairobi Hospital is renown for the high quality nursing care and provision of excellent patient services in the country, regionally and globally. Professionalism is an aspect we pride ourselves in; we take great care to recruit and retain nurses of high calibre who are committed to patient care.

To achieve that quality of care, procedures, policies and standards have been put in place using internatioinal bench marks. Regular internal audits are done to ensure that the care at any time is improved.

The nursing division is the hospital’s backbone in medical care giving patients a positive hospital experience and a conducive environment for quick recovery.

The division consists of:

  • wards
  • Operating Theatres
  • Infection control
  • Quality improvement nursing
  • Counseling
