A Pietermaritzburg man, Vishnu Dorasamy, has lodged a complaint against one of Northdale’s nurses whom he alleged did not wear a mask while at the hospital.

This comes after he apparently confronted her over her “irresponsible conduct” when he saw her at the hospital’s pharmacy without a mask on Thursday.

“I went there to pick up my wife’s medication and she walked in while I was waiting to be assisted. I stopped her and I said to her ‘you need to put your mask on’. She had it on her head,” he told The Witness.
