I hereby declare a complaint concerning the way the doctors and nurses should carry out they work conduct.The complaint i have is that i was admited at Nu-Shifa hospital,and at the begining of the treatment for a querie on swine flu,they ask you to fill in an application form,with personal details,my main concern is that they asked me what i was alergic to,still taking that into consideration,after being discharged i came to realise that an allergy has broken out from the medication they where giving to me.I just would like to say that the doctors and nurses should be more professional in the way they go about doing they job.

I personally do not like the hospital. My granny was in there for a month.We had asked the nurses if she had any bed sores and they had told us that there was one but it was small.They mentioned that they were treating it. When my gran passed away recently , and as custom we went to bath her and only when we turned over we were shocked with the size of her bedsore. My opinion is that the nurses did not take good care of her and that is why she had developed it. Sometimes i wonder if they are doing it for the sake of doing it ,because it doesnt seem like they doing it for the love of their patients.It shocked us about the size of her sore and i sometimes wonder if that killed her.

Some of the doctors are extremely unprofessional and have no way of talking to the families. The nurses as well are not prepared to even give a little feedback on the patients condition. We understand it is there job to look after the patient , but its also their duty to inform the families of their condition. It was once a hospital that progressed excellent results and now I would never trust my life in there.The amount of people that pass away scares me because to me it just shows that their is no hope when you go there. But alot of families are greatful to those few nurses who work their best and treat the patients as if they were their own families.

Good day to you, I am querying about vacancies in admin and finance. I have worked in private hospital administration for over 6 years, however due to relocation I am in need of a job placement. I have excellent knowledge on the management of an administrative office from admission to month end run. I have great knowledge of icd 10 and cpt coding. I am hoping I do receive a response. Kindly reply to my e-mail should any vacancy arrive. Many thanks

Have read a story in the You magazine about a lady Rheumatologist who treated a patient.
My daughter lives in New Zealand, and has the same symptom, as the young lady in the article of the You magazine. Is it possible to give us a name of the doctor, so we can contact her and see if she can maybe give us the name of someone in NZ, or alternatively is my daughter can come here to consult with her.
Many hanks

A huge disappointment.On behalf of my wifeI phoned Nu Shifa hospital at phone no.0861208881 today at about 10:30am inquiring about a doctor. The Switchboard was curt when informing me that there was no such doctor at Shifa hospital.My wife thereafter asked me to phone again and request the name of any orthopedic doctor at the hospital as she wanted to phone and make an appointment.When I phoned again the Switchboard, a female,upon recognising my voice as the person she had just spoken to never gave me a chance to say what I was going to say but direspectfully hung up on me.

This kind of rude behaviour is totally unacceptable. Shifa is an institution which prides itself in the excellent service it has rendered to the people of Durban over the years.It would ba a pity if one bad element in the form of a disrespectful employee would be allowed to tarnish the good name built overyears of good service.

Hi, I had a baby in Nu-Shifa hospital in 2006, and i must commend the nurses. As it was my first time, the nurses and staff of the hospital was absolutely excellent with me. The treatment and care not to mention love and support i received from maternity ward nurses was great. I am now pregnant with my second baby and have personally opted to deliver at Nu-Shifa once again. I recently visted the hospital after the new facelift and found it to be superb. I myself was born at Shifa some 30 years back and so has alot of the kids in my family. This hopital is priced right and very decent to go to.

Kruger Park - Lower Sabie
Kruger Park - Lower Sabie (Website)

Lower Sabie graces the banks of the Sabie River, one of the few perennial rivers to flow through the Kruger National Park. Visitors cannot but feel soothed by the view towards the river and the Lebombo Mountains beyond. In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle.
