Investigation into baby deaths launched

The Department of Health is to investigate the deaths of four babies at the Cecilia Makiwane Hospital in the Eastern Cape in an effort to determine whether there was any negligence on the part of staff. Reports states that the deaths occurred after a power failure at the hospital’s Ward 17 earlier this month. An internal investigation has found that the power failure was not due to a failure in supply from Eskom. The Eastern Cape Department of Health is installing an uninterrupted power supply system to wards 16 and 17 in an effort to strengthen back-up measures.
