Man dies in 19-hour wait for ambulance

2012-06-06 10:00

Johannesburg - Two men, one a brother of a former minister, died in separate incidents after alleged public healthcare bungles, it was reported on Wednesday.

The Star reported that Mlungisi Dlamini, 25, died in Pretoria on Tuesday after he waited 19 hours for a state ambulance to take him to hospital.

Dlamini's brother Sandile said that during the wait he was told that an ambulance was on the way and later told that none were available.

Mashaole Mangena, the brother of former science and technology minister Mosibudi Mangena, 74, died on Friday after he was admitted to Polokwane Hospital several times over seven weeks for a blocked bile duct.

Mosibudi said his brother died in an ambulance while on the way to a hospital in Ga-Rankuwa for emergency surgery.

He said he had to call the Limpopo health MEC and Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi to intervene.

"As we leave the hospital [after the death] the minister of health returns my call some 48 hours later... he is saddened by the Mashaole story and frankly admits that it is not the only one," Mosibudi said.

      Sadly, the bereaved family will still vote for them, Eish

      Long Live ANC…

      Christopher - 2012-06-06 11:41

      At the end of the day if the majority of the people keep voting anc, this will keep happening. Due to the anc's useless management South Africans keep dying and starving...who cares...I don't! You have yourselves to blame.

      msendi - 2012-06-06 11:51

      Do you mean that all ambulance drivers and paramedics are ANC cadres?

      Bryan - 2012-06-06 12:26

      Wait till one of your family needs an ambulance msendi... Keep it up dude!! Baa baa black sheep bro!!

      msendi - 2012-06-06 12:53

      @Bryan…I feel sorry for the bereaved family… But why blame ANC for everything because not all people are ANC cadres???

      Amazed - 2012-06-06 15:50

      Is there no 1 car were they were waiting that could have taken the person to the Hospital.Slow to think...

      elize.vankerckhoven - 2012-06-06 17:26

      @Msendi who do we blame then?? The ANC runs this country and I am very sure that particular municipality which means they are responsible for the ambulance! Why were there no ambulance available?? No funds to buy enough or to upkeep the current one's, why no funds?? Ever heard of corruption??

      nicole.paulsen.31 - 2012-06-06 20:23

      We live in this society where pizza gets to your house before the emergency does! Sad....

      you get what you vote for,so go and bury the man and then vote for the anc again you deserve it

Instead of wasting money on petty street names, stupid parties, unnecessary houses and cars for government officials please start spending all that wasted money on health and education! Please open your eyes and face the actual problems the country are facing instead of worrying about the past and who has the nicest car! It is crippling this entire country!

    Just a question what about the likes of ER24 or Netcare? Do they just not service these areas or are the people not aware of them?

      nokuthandwa - 2012-06-06 10:47

      I think people are not aware of them.

      Just a question! Are they not private?netcare and er24?

      sharon.truebodyvice - 2012-06-06 11:15

      They dont want to pay for them............sad but true want everything for free it was promised to them

      winston.mullany - 2012-06-06 11:37

      Netcare and ER24 are private companies but they dialed 10177 for a state ambulance. They would gone out to the call if they had gotten it but they then pay the rates of the private service of which they can't or don't want to pay.

      Heather - 2012-06-06 15:02

      Unfortunately these are private companies, that charge a small fortune to collect, with the average minimum wage of +- R2500pm, these poor people cannot afford a private ambulance, in some cases it is their entire months salary that they will be paying :(

  • nokuthandwa - 2012-06-06 10:45

    This is very sad. The full story is on IOL. This is the timeline leading up to the death. Timeline of Mlungisi Dlamini’s death: 1st call at 2.45pm Told the ambulance is on its way. 2nd call at about 3pm Told ambulance is stuck in traffic because of an accident but is on the way. 3rd call between 4 and 4.30pm Nurses go back to the clinic and give brother number to call ambulance. Brother told they have his details but there are no ambulances and he should check after an hour. At about 6pm Two paramedics in a fire and rescue vehicle arrive at flat to “verify” address. At about 7pm Brother calls operator again but is told there is still no ambulance. 5th call at about 7.15pm Brother calls nurse to inform her that he will bring his brother to the clinic the following morning. 6th call in the morning Mlungisi collapses in bathroom. Brother calls nurse to inform her. Nurse says she will call ambulance. Matron calls Sandile to say ambulance is on its way. Mlungisi dies Sandile calls police asking if they can help transport the body to a morgue. Ambulance arrives at 10.15am on Tuesday

  • crracker.crackerr - 2012-06-06 10:53

    On 702 this morning some spokesperson or senior head tried to explain the failures of the amubulance (the state ones) away. Note his underhandedness and it is hoped that radio presenters/journalists will be alerted to the tactic. He tried to divert attention by "let me make you an example" and hopes that the ONE, SINGLE example will suffice and keep people's minds occupied so they start with a different topic and not make more pointed enquiries. Old tactice. One wonders if they are given some formal training to be so devious. Whenever somebody (politicians, trade unionists, public servants) start with their "example" they should be asked to give ALL the examples. Then hear them stammer.

  • gerhard.debruijn - 2012-06-06 10:55

    Ah Yes!! A fine example of what the masses are voting for!!! There we go all you people that claim that you will vote for the African National Corruptors till Jesus comes. This is the result. Jesus came for these blokes!!!!

  • Richard - 2012-06-06 10:56

    What can one say. I am sad for the patient. These things used to work. I am not condoning Apartheid but in that era the people of all colors had working hospitals. Baragwanath was known internationally as a top academic hospital. Go look at it now. I broke my hip some years ago after a horse accident. The ambulance was there within 30 minutes but because I can afford private. What about all the people who cannot. Every day we are told that the Government cannot provide the services as there are no funds. What they do not talk about is the theft and corruption going on and which money could have paid for these services. When we ask for services we are told very quickly there is no money but when we ask about the corruption we are told that this is not a matter to be dealt with on a National Level e.g Mdluli. It does not take much to work out that the Government has lost all control and are far to busy deciding who is going to be the successor and lining their own pockets and the pockets of the favoured few. Amazing how we have gotten used to things like "switch of geysers and heaters" and "Taxis are not subject to the rule of the road in peak hours". My ADSL line has been on and off intermittently for months. Cannot get it fixed and can only talk to a call centre. This is just the beginning. We will have to get used to many other things in the future as the wheels come off one by one. And that is the story of Africa.

      Sad to say but isn't nice when the ministers have to answer to the states service at the loss of his brother. Even with all his connections, he failed to make it work. Now the ministers can feel how the ordinary citizen feels everyday with the lack of health services while they sitting on their high and mighty perches.

      Aristar - 2012-06-07 03:55

      The government can afford to spend a fortune on defending its idiot president's "dignity" but cannot afford to pay for a health system which may function. Only the voters have the power to get rid of the garbage which is ruining this country. Once upon a time there was a happy South Africa........ Oh wait!! Even the brothers Grimm never though of that one.

  • Anakin - 2012-06-06 11:05

    So why does the AA EE BEE BBEE and BBBEE policies NOT "wek"? (sarcasm)...the ANC is in power and decides how many ambulances and doctors there should be? How can there just be NO AMBULANCES AVAILABLE? It's a very sick joke, and one caused by an inept govt. Earlier this year we heard of the student with six distinctions that were denied access to UCT to study for a doctor, due to her offending white skin colour. When is all this k*k going to stop, or is a painting of the president eating up all the available resources? Call me racist but then explain to these people who suffer needlessly WHY there are no ambulances. Must the citizens start their own ambulance service so we can their jobs as well, besides having to everything else as well which should be done by the govt., for which we pay taxes. Corruption, inefficiency, laziness, don't give a crap, want more for less work (Post Office strike: I must put aside an entire day now to go and collect undelivered mail due to a strike), PickitUp when they feel like it. We can't depend on the govt. for anything, yet they want more from us for less service delivery with e-tolls and electricity hikes. (NB. Those residents that did not receive their City-Power municipal bills DUE TO THE POST-OFFICE STRIKE will be COMPELLED to use e-billing to get their account details, residents that await vehicle license renewal notices must forget about their car licenses so it expires, bank statements by mail must be waited upon.) We are GATVOL.

      llewellync - 2012-06-06 13:29

      While I agree I want to point out something... No one wants to be in these industries because the government under funds them. Teachers are paid peanuts and the government hospitals and staff are just as underpaid. Why can a private hospital provide good health care while a government one can't? It's because the private hospitals have money. Institutes like schools and hospitals (The GOVERNMENT run ones) need more money. End of story. The government will instead throw many at huge parties and throw away millions towards changing street names. I wonder how much medical equipment and ambulances could have been bought with the money being set aside and spent on changing one street name after the other? Or the massive centenary parties that were thrown? Lots my friend. Lots

Get my drift?? The money will be used to train sufficient educated staff and to maintain sufficient vehicles to stay on the road!!

Instead they blow 100 million on parties, billions on arms deals (that we don't need), 150 million on houses etc.....I'm mean really??? But have a painting of the president and see how effectively the ANC can mobilise themselves!!! And worst of all, not one person in Government will accept accountability for this travesty!

    Damn it just wont stop, the poor service in our government Departments n guess what nothing changes each year its the same old bloody story. I feel so sad for the bereaved family, i just wish they could just contribute to the funeral preparations, cause what if the man was the only person working in that house hold.

    I gave a lift to a Xhosa lady from EC walking from our local provincial hospital to the RDP housing area. Apparently she could not get a hip replacement in the EC, resulting in her leaving her husband and kids at home and using her sisters adress to obtan as a health care refugee a hip replacement in George, for free. Amazingly enough, she still voted ANC, even though the pathetic ANC EC health care management nearly cost her her life.

      What's with ya'l and the term refugee? U think the WC is an independent state? Stick to ur afrikaans and stop abusing English. No1 is a refugee in their own country.

    It is sad that this phenomenon of people loosing their precious and only one life in neglected circumstances is on the increase worldwide.It's high time such on-call for incidences be investigated and culprits dealt with in the full rigrous of the Law

    As a doctor working in a state hospital I will say that the ambulance services do the best job under the circumstances. Bigger, bus sized ambulances that can transport more people would be an option. However not every person who calls an ambulance deserves one and the sad thing is that the staff are not allowed to choose which patient to pick up. I once remember a girl catching an ambulance for period pains which is such a waste of resources. I am sure this nonsense happens often. The ambulance gets used as a free taxi. To those guys trying to politicize the issue, please accept that after Apartheid no black person will ever vote for any white person for a long long long time. There is no credible "black" opposition to the ANC and until that changes there will be no performance.

      I agree as I used to transport may cases such as mentioned, the ambulance services are abused as a taxi service

    Promises. Promises, who can live on promises! One can die of old age waiting in a queue for "service" at any state hospital. If one were to investigate what happens at any state hospital, one would find that there are bodies that have been lying in the casualty department fir days, because they died without being treated. If every report of this kind were reported, maybe, just maybe the "government" might do something about it. But why should they, when their president cannot think about anything other than his "dignity" (synonym for dick)? This country has gone to hell in a handbasket and it is ruled (not served) by a bunch of moneygrubbing, greedy, rats who should be destroyed.

    My condolonces to the families, yet another demonstration of how far we still have to go to get service, yesterday i read about our public hospitals state. Now i'd have to call a minister to get an Ambulance, this is appalling. What is the department of health doing?, why do these people still have jobs?
