Another SA state hospital horror - holes fall into man's flesh after ankle operation

#TheAfricanWay is to turn hospitals into death traps and dirty germ infested slaughterhouses. Please do everything in your power to avoid being taken up in an ANC ” hospital”. A man from Sasolburg, Christo Landman (36), has been on sick leave for 3 months after an operation on a broken ankle in a state hospital. The wound did not heal and formed deep holes into his flesh.

Christo broke his ankle and he underwent an operation in the Boitumelo hospital in Kroonstad on 14 October last year. It was reported that there is not always running water in that hospital and as a result of that the toilets are often not working. When that happens, nurses leave buckets with human urine and excrement standing in the wards between patients.

Christo was sent home with dirty bandages and a private wound sister struggled to get the bandages off when she wanted to clean the wound because the bandages were stuck to Christo’s flesh. He was readmitted to hospital, at Sasolburg, on 15 November due to infection in the operation wound. He did get antibiotics intravenously. A doctor removed the screws out of his ankle on 17 December.

When Christo was discharged from hospital the second time, it was the same story and the private wound sister discovered the wound was badly infected again.

Christo had to be readmitted to the Boitumelo hospital on 30 December and he was transferred to the Pelonomi hospital in Bloemfontein where he was operated on to clean the wound. He is still in hospital awaiting a skin transplant now.

We once had proper care in state hospitals when we as whites ran our own hospitals and our own people cared for us in state hospitals.
But we lost our sovereignty and self-determination and placed our fate in “our people’s” hands when we handed control of the country to the black majority and the ANC.

We should admit our mistake to give up all our rights and means of living in a dignified way so easily, instead believing the liberals that a ” rainbow nation ” awaits us.
