Accident & Emergency
Aga Khan University Hospital, Nairobi provides world class accident and emergency services to patients from across the entire East and Central Africa region.
Open 24 hours a day, our Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department ensures that each patient is initially assessed according to the Canadian Triage Acuity Scale (CTAS), which is a well recognized and validated triage system that prioritizes patient care by severity of illness.
The dedicated team of doctors and nurses who staff our A&E Department are highly trained in accident and emergency medicine. AKUH,N also ensures that they are kept up-to-date with the most current knowledge and skills by actively supporting their continuing professional education.
The A&E department is equipped with resuscitation bays for critically ill patients, procedure rooms for surgical emergencies, examination rooms equipped with piped oxygen and vacuum suction machines, and observation beds.
We also offer a dedicated Paediatric A&E unit, where children less than 14 years of age are treated by team of doctors and nurses who specialise in paediatric emergencies.
Critically ill patients from the Accident and Emergency Department may also be admitted to the ward, Princess Zahra Pavilion, Intensive Care Unit or High Dependency Unit for further care.
