Too much hostility at Hlatikulu Govt Hospital
Nurses at Hlathikhulu Hospital are allegedly experiencing high levels of hostile behaviour by their superiors. The management is accused of mistreating nurses.
In the petition written to the ministry of health by SWADNU, the nurses requested the ministry to intervene in the issue of mismanagement by the nursing management at Hlathikhulu Hospital.
“The management is not following the right procedures to implement changes at the hospital,” stated SWADNU General Secretary Sibusiso Lushaba. He said the management is accused of mistreating the nurses in many ways.
For instance, he said, some nurses were removed from the theatre without following the right procedures.
The Principal Secretary at the Ministry of Health Dr Simon Zwane promised to attend to the grievances soon.
He said they would give the executive feedback by nextweek.
“We are going to action to all the grievances soon and we are going to give you feedback next week,” he said.
