Thorough investigations needed for a child who died in church

29 December 2017, 13:15

It is true that some nurses and doctors at the public health centres, whether hospitals or clinics, do not treat patients with ubuntu.  I am saying some just to exclude those that are always trying to assist patients with care, love, respect and sympathy.  

The reference here is with regard to the 3-year-old child who has allegedly died at the Incredible Happenings Ministries in Katlehong.  It is said that, the mother brought the child to the pastor to be prayed for.

As I followed what actually happened; it is said that the mother brought the child to the church after she was not given help at the Daveyton Main Clinic. According to the mother of the child; the nurses at the clinic could not help her because they had no intravenous drips.  It means the situation was beyond the nurses’ control if really the intravenous drips were not available at that time.  Nevertheless, why did n’t those nurses do everything within their power to make sure that the life of the child is saved?  Furthermore, the mother of a child was told to take the child to the hospital of which she was not given a referral letter.  My understanding is that, when a sickly person is brought to the clinic and the clinic does not have resources to help that person; the nurses do not just turn the person away, instead they have to call an ambulance as a matter of emergency for that person to be taken to the nearest hospital.  Unfortunately, that did not happen in this case of a 3-year-old.

More pathetically is that, the mother had to clean the floor after the baby messed herself because of diarrhoea. Very painful. It shows that, the whole situation meant nothing to those nurses.

The service at most if not all the public health centres is absolutely disgusting. People did not vote to get such an unbecoming treatment and service at the health centres.  Again, the system upon how the ambulance services operate is also a serious concern, especially the long time spent before the ambulance can reach the destination where it is called.

Thorough investigations must be conducted upon the whole thing that led to the death of that 3-year-old child.
