Pretoria – Helpless and covered in his own faeces was the sight a family member saw when she checked on a patient at the Tshwane District Hospital.

Subsequently, Judith Roberts said she was seeking legal advice on the way forward. According to Roberts, her 84-year-old husband was allegedly restrained to a bed and found covered in faeces at the hospital. 

She said her gripe with the hospital began when they took her husband to the hospital on September 30 as he was vomiting and was extremely weak.

“We waited in the emergency ward for a long time and were told they were waiting for a bed in a ward. He had to sleep on a stretcher that night.”

She claimed that the next day he was still not admitted and in the emergency room. When she phoned to check on his condition on October 2 she was told he was in Ward 5, but when she checked, they could not account for him.
