Flooded wards at Charlotte Maxeke hospital still not ready for patients.

Further flooding has resulted in delays for the return of patients to parts of the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital that were damaged.

According to Gauteng health department spokesperson Kwara Kekana, the flooding was a result of a burst pipe on level 16 (roof level) on block 5 of the hospital.READ:Another blow to Charlotte Maxeke Hospital infrastructure as wards floodAccording to a professor at the hospital, the pipe burst again on Tuesday, after it had been repaired on Monday. This led to continuing electricity issues on level 8 and some water leaks in areas between the wards on level 8 and level 9, south side. The professor said plans to have patients back in these affected areas had been put on hold for another 24 hours.

Internal communication seen by City Press accused government of failing to provide adequate support to ensure patient care was not disrupted following the flooding of wards at the hospital.“The one constant thing is the total lack of a sense of support from Gauteng health department, the province and the government,” the communication read.

There was also a suggestion of strike action: “I think it is time to protest.”Kekana said that infrastructure work was ongoing in the facility, led by the department of infrastructure development and property management as the relevant authority.As previously communicated, patients were moved when the pipe burst on Monday. The structurally unsafe areas will not be occupied until they are declared safe. The wet areas have been cleaned and fogged. headtopics.com
