REACTION: TEMBISA HOSPITAL FINDINGS
The recent findings by the Health Ombud Prof Makgoba are clear reflection of how some of our health facilities have become gruesome death traps for the citizens. Tembisa Hospital has since been known for long queues, lazy and heartless staffers, negligence and avoidable deaths.
CHANGE is concerned that at the time the country is faced with the rampant pandemic the citizens are exposed to this kind of treatment. We hoped our health professionals would be the first to show compassion instead of being the deaths agents.
There is no compassion in denying patients food, not mentioning four days that the victim Shonisani Lethole experienced before his death.
We call on Minister Zweli Mkhize to immediately remove these 19 staffers and the current hospital leadership. We do not need such unpatriotic public servants. This will assure the safety of the facility users.
