Limpopo Health MEC Refuses To Apologize For Disciplining Nurses Infront Of Patients

When it comes to South Africans receiving good health care it is very important because many of the Citizens have a complaint especially when it comes to public health care that it is not being given as effectively as possible. and that the healthcare workers are not doing their jobs when it comes to ensuring that patients who go to clinics or hospitals are provided with the service that they need and leave satisfied.

And in the recent years, there have been many complaints and many cases of patients being mistreated by healthcare workers and also stating that when they go to healthcare institutions, they do not receive the help they need and the only time they get taken care of is after hours, when they have waited in long, slow moving lines. And this is something the MEC of health in Limpopo noticed when she went to a local clinic.

A video went viral on social media that resulted in many people being impressed and some people being against how she was addressing the senior staff at the clinic. In front of the patients, in the video, it seems like MEC Phophi Ramathuba is shouting at them because she is not impressed by how they are leaving patients in long lines for hours, and some of them are even going on lunch breaks while others sit in their offices.

The MEC was asked about the video that went viral, and she said that she would not apologise because healthcare and service delivery should be taken seriously. When she arrived at the clinic, she saw a number of pregnant patients who had been waiting in line to be helped for hours, some of whom said they had not even eaten.
