Health MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo has called on patients and health professionals to always seek common ground and respect each other at medical facilities.
This after a video that surfaced social media where nurses appear to fail to attend to a patient with a sick child at the Limit Hill Clinic, in Ladysmith.
The woman’s child can be heard crying in the background, where even her several requests to meet the clinic manager appears to be ignored by the nurses.
Dhlomo visited the hospital, accompanied by management of its mother facility, Ladysmith Hospital.
He says this matter could have been handled much better.
