The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa said the outcome of the audit on the country’s public healthcare facilities is a true reflection of conditions on the ground.

The audit showed that 93 percent of maternity wards do not have functional and essential equipment to keep mothers and the newly born babies safe.

Denosa Spokesperson Sibongile Delihlazo said the relationship between the community and the Health Professionals and facilities is deteriorating to the lowest level.

Delihlazo added that members of the community often believe that nurses and health care workers are often to blame for the wrong doing that occur in health facilities.

Delihlazo further added that they hope that its recommendation outcome of the audit will be taken seriously by the Department of Health in addressing these issues.
