Melomed Gatesville Complaints - Furious, appalled and disgusted

My daughter delivered her baby on Thursday 12 April 2018 at 18:30 at Melomed Gatesville.  I got to see her 15 minutes after delivery and stayed with her for almost 2 hours. During this period she was left to lay in her own blood,  bloody floor and utensils and placenta still displayed on the tray in the room. The baby hadn't been weighed or measured either.

We did ask the sister on duty when she would be cleaned and moved to another room. Her response was that the night duty had just started and my daughter would have to wait for a nurse to get to her for cleaning. Sickening and appallingly to say the least !!!!

Another nurse said that my daughter would have to spend the night in the delivery room as there were not enough beds.  Shocked and disgusted !!!

She eventually was cleaned and moved after 21:00, 2 & 1/2 hours after having a baby.

For a first time mother none of the nurses on duty showed her how to breastfeed or change her babies nappy.

I find this appallingly for a private institute.  Staff who are not doing their jobs for the passion anymore because its just a job. Her medical aid is paying for a service which she apparently did not receive.

We heard a few people complaining of similar experiences but thought we would go into this with an open mind,  clearly that was not the right thing to do.  Everybody complains but do not actually put pen to paper.

Enough is enough!!!!!!!!
