A colleague and I went to the Zuid Afrikaans Hospital yesterday to visit a patient in the High Care Unit. What a surprise! It was the first time in 40 years that I visited a hospital which made such a positive impression. Please give me a chance to commend Zuid Afrikaans Hospital on the following:
friendly security, friendly and helpful personnel at reception, absolutely friendly staff in the High Care Unit, helpful personnel in the hallways who gave us directions, a perfectly clean and neat Hospital, I am highly impressed with the lovely patios which gleam, beautiful flowerbeds and lawn and the general atmosphere which makes one feel at home.
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 van 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. There are 9 beds of which 1 room is a sleep-in-mother-and-child room. Parents van order meals from the Food Services Department for themselves at a minimal cost. Children receive meals specially planned 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.
