Tshwane Hospital without water for 5 days

NATIONAL NEWS - Patients at the Tshwane District Hospital in Pretoria have not been bathed or cleaned by nurses for five days because there was no water, the Democratic Alliance said on Sunday.

"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," said the DA's 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 Gauteng health department as patients' wounds are not being cleaned and this could spread infection and pose a serious risk to patients' lives," she said.

The hospital and the department could not immediately be reached for comment.
