    Patients sickand tired ofwaitingTAURIQ HASSEN

    SICK PATIENTS lined thehallways at the KensingtonDay Hospital for the last threeweeks, waiting in vain to be seenby a doctor.

    Senior citizens and children alikestood in line to be treated for theirillnesses but the doctors werentthere.

    Helena Jacobs, a Facreton resi-dent, visited the day hospital forthree days in a row and waited forhours, but had no luck in gettingmedical attention for the tightnessin her chest.

    She started feeling her chesttighten up last weekend, and imme-diately made an appointment to seea doctor at the hospital.

    On Tuesday, Jacobs says, she ar-rived at the hospital as arranged only to find herself waiting forhours along with many other sickpeople.

    We just sat there, basically hop-ing to see the doctor, and the nurseskept walking up and down the hall-way, but could not give us any realanswers.

    The people sitting there were re-ally sick and needed attention, but

    nothing was happening.Sharon Alexander, a former so-

    cial worker at the Shawco Centre,visited the hospital on Thursdayand watched in shock as peoplelined up for medical attention.

    This is not right, Alexandersays.

    These people need medical at-tention, but there is nobody here,and there hasnt been anybody herefor the last three weeks other thanthe nursing staff.

    She says she questioned the nurs-es at the hospital, but no answerswere provided she kept being sentto a sign on the wall stating that nodoctors would be available for theday.

    All these people have appoint-ments with these doctors, but whenthey arrive, they must sit and wait,and no doctors arrive, says Alex-ander.

    When Peoples Post visited thehospital, a few people were on theirway out the doors, having sat forhours to be seen to by a doctor.

    The patient backlog seemed tohave been cleared somewhat by thehospital, but some of the peopleleaving said many had left to seekhealthcare somewhere else.

    Charnell Hendricks, chairperson

    of the Maitland Community Polic-ing Forum, has also waited in lineafter making an appointment, onlyto be turned away by the sign indi-cating the doctors absence.

    There are so many people need-ing medical attention urgently, butthe doctors are not here to assist,she says. This is ridiculous, andhas been going on for the last threeweeks or so.

    A Western Cape Health Depart-ment spokesperson, Sithembiso

    Magubane, says the situation at thehospital was temporary one of thehospitals two permanent doctorswas ill, and the other had taken upa training post at another facility.

    A locum doctor has been con-tracted to fulfil these duties, saysMagubane.

    He adds that interviews are cur-rently being conducted at the hospi-tal for the full-time position.

    Managers at the hospital weretasked with finding people to cover

    the gaps, Magubane says.Supervisory visits will be con-

    ducted by the facility manager eve-ry month to make sure things areon track, and further regular visitswill be made by senior managersand medical officers, Magubanesays.

    The Western Cape GovernmentHealth and Kensington Facilitymanagement would like to apolo-gise to the community for the incon-venience caused, he concludes.
