No water in hospital

PATIENTS at the Tshwane District Hospital in Pretoria have not been bathed or cleaned for five days because there is no water, the Democratic Alliance said yesterday.

"For almost a week now, family and friends of patients are being forced to bring two-litre water bottles to the hospital in an attempt to assist with the problem," DA Gauteng social development spokeswoman Hendrika Kruger.

She said the reason for the problem was a fault with the hospital's valve system.

"This situation requires immediate action by the health department since patients' wounds are not being cleaned ... and this could spread infection and pose a serious risk to patients' lives," Kruger said.
