Hospital death not due to lack of a surgeon, says health department

“It’s impossible to have surgeons at all hospitals, all day. That does not happen anywhere in the world.

“Sometimes a surgeon is called, depending on the situation. They can advise on what must be done,” he said.

“The patient was seen and attended to by staff members. All clinical procedures were followed.  Unfortunately we cannot reveal more information about the deceased patient unless the family has sat down with us and given consent,” he said.    

Mvambi urged the family to consult the hospital.   

“It is within the family’s right to seek answers if they are not happy or clear with procedures. Management is happy to do a case analysis of what happened,” he added.
