Covid-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the hospital is constantly updating measures put in place to safeguard patients, staff, and visitors accordingly. Therefore, we urge you to continuously check with us for updates. In line with these updates, patients continue to receive one visitor per day (registered next of kin ONLY) for 30 minutes. However, only visitors with SURGICAL MASKS will be allowed within patient areas. Please refer to the visiting hours page for the revised visiting times. To adequately assist emergency cases during this period, the Persons Under Investigations (PUI) isolation ward remains fully functional. The ward ensures that all emergency cases receive care while a Covid-19, Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is being conducted.

The ward offers surgical nursing to trauma patients as well as pre and post operative care to gynaecological, general surgery and cardiothoracic patients. Highly technical equipment is used to monitor patients and, should they request it. Television sets are now available in all rooms. The first floor surgical ward now also houses the paediatric surgical wing.

The Orthopeadic / Neurosurgical Unit Situated on the first floor South Wing, the Orthopeadic and Neurosurgical Unit has a 34-bed capacity. It is manned by a highly experienced nursing staff who are very well versed in the nursing care of major orthopaedic and neurological operations.
