A video from the Rahima Moosa Hospital in Johannesburg went viral on social media, showing pregnant women sleeping on the floor. When the City of Johannesburg's MMC for Health and Social Development claimed that the hospital was overburdened by unauthorized foreign immigrants who resided far away from the medical facility,
This suggests that the pregnant ladies may be foreign nationals unable to return home.
According to the MMC, pregnant women were sleeping on the floor for up to three days at a time. The foreigners are alleged to be undocumented, which is unfortunate.
The alleged foreigners sleeping on the floor in the short video that went viral on social media must wish they were back in their homelands. They'd be able to sleep in the comfort of their own homes, rather than having to travel large distances to medical institutions.
Pregnant women must find sleeping on the floor an unpleasant experience. The hospital must ensure that every patient is treated properly, whether or not they are documented. It entails ensuring that they are as comfortable as possible so that they are not harmed.
The Johannesburg health MMC must develop ways to make pregnant women, whether documented or not, feel at ease at hospitals.
It's heartbreaking to think that some women are forced to sleep on the floor for days in a hospital setting.
It's never a good idea to sleep on the floor, especially in a hospital. However, greater facilities for pregnant women are needed in Johannesburg's hospitals. The hospital clearly accommodates a large number of patients, necessitating the need to expand the facility's capacity.
