Dear Management: I have a great fear of Anaesthesia and operations in general. I was, however, surprised by the professional way I was treated by everyone at your hospital. If I ever need another operation, I will demand to have it done at the Zuid-Afrikaans Hospital. You can be proud of your staff, doctors and anaesthetists. Well done!- Mr. T. Stoffberg
Upgraded General Wards andExcellent Children's Ward.
Upgraded General Wards
There are 3 adult general wards at the Zuid-Afrikaans Hospital. They are situated in the original and historical building. All wards have lovely views and access to the immaculately kept gardens. Rooms in Ward A and Ward B also have access to a lovely shady veranda, whereas Ward C has access to a tranquil inner-square garden with garden furniture and birdsong. Although the wards were recently upgraded, care was taken to retain the historical character of the building. The nursing staff is of world-class standard and care workers are available to make the patient’s stay as comfortable as possible. There is a prayer room situated between Wards A and B. Spacious and attractive private rooms are available in all the wards.
Our in-house Food Services Department, managed by a qualified dietician, prepares hot, home-cooked meals. Meals are planned and prepared individually for patients who require a special diet while in hospital, whereas other patients are offered a choice of meals for the day.
Excellent Children's Ward
Children are precious and having a child in hospital can be a very difficult time for any parent. We are confident that our Children’s Ward staff are excellent and know very well how to nurse sick children. The Children’s Ward also offers a private room for every child, ensuring that the chance of being infected by other children in the Ward is avoided. There are 7 sleep-in mother-and-child rooms with bath and shower facilities where mothers can freshen up. Tea and coffee are complementary, and home-cooked, hot meals are included for sleep-in mothers. Parents can order meals from the Food Services Department for themselves at a minimal cost. Children receive meals specially planned by our in-house dietician and prepared by the in-house Food Services Department for the diet prescribed by their doctors while in hospital. A security door prevents anyone from entering the Children’s Ward without permission from the nursing staff.
