A “serious illness” has no common technical definition. The Family and Medical Leave Act provides a good starting point in that it defines a serious health condition as any injury, illness, impairment or condition that results in either inpatient medical care or ongoing treatment with a health care provider. Basically, a serious illness can be thought of as any illness that is not quickly and easily cured or an illness that human body cannot fix on its own in a fairly short period of time.

An unlawful omission is defined in Kenya’s penal code, section 202 (2) as an omission amounting to culpable negligence to discharge a duty tending to the preservation of life or health. One can be found guilty of unlawful omission if the court finds there was no intention to cause death or bodily harm.
