An investigation into the
conduct of two Mpumalanga doctors has been launched by the Department of
Minister Aaron Motsoaledi said
in a statement that the alleged conduct of the two doctors are serious as they
points to gross negligence and therefore an investigation must be launched to
determine facts before an appropriate action is taken.
Ministerial Spokesperson Joe
Maila said we believe that whatever they did or did not do while they were
consulting a particular patient at a hospital was bothering on criminality but
also issues of ethics that need to be looked to clinically.
“They did not follow any
clinical guidelines when consulting this particular patient and we believe that
the investigation will point us to the right direction before we take any necessary
action” Maila added.
