Cracks and broken taps at Thelle Mogoerane Hospital

By Jack Bloom MPL, DA Gauteng Shadow MEC for Health:

Patients at the Thelle Mogoerane Hospital in Vosloorus (formerly New Natalspruit) are complaining about cracked walls and broken taps.

Ward 12 is worst affected with cracks running up the wall.

This is a new building which should not have any structural defects.

There are broken taps and missing seat covers in the toilets, many of which are dirty and smelly.

The Treatment Action Campaign says that they are going to picket outside the hospital because of all the complaints they receive from patients there.

Hospital management needs to tighten up on maintenance and repair structural defects as soon as possible.

The contractors should be held to account for sloppy work.
