On 25 October 2018 The Associated Press reported:
The Kenyatta National Hospital is east Africa's biggest medical institution, home to more than a dozen donor-funded projects with international partners -- a 'Center of Excellence,' says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At Kenyatta National Hospital and at an astonishing number of other hospitals around the world, if you don't pay up, you don't go home. The hospitals often illegally detain patients long after they should be medically discharged, using armed guards, locked doors, and even chains to hold those who have not settled their accounts. Mothers and babies are sometimes separated.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health and business systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
Dozens of doctors, nurses, health experts, patients, and administrators told The Associated Press of imprisonments in hospitals in at least 30 other countries, including Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, China and Thailand, Lithuania and Bulgaria, and others in Latin America and the Middle East.
