DENOSA KZN on the viral video of a nurse at St Mary's Hospital

Media Statement


Friday, 10 November 2017



The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) in Kwazulu-Natal would like to confirm that the nurse in the video that is going viral is its member, and that she has been placed on precautionary suspension.


As a result, the organisation is not able to make any further comment on the incident as shown in the video, as we are obliged to represent our member in the disciplinary hearing that is to take place in due course, until the matter has reached its conclusion. Commenting on it would be prejudicial.


As an organisation, however, we are concerned about the utterances made by the MEC of Health in KZN, Dr Sibongiseni Dlhomo, on the media platforms regarding this matter, which we feel may compromise this case as he has already made judgmental comments before this issue is handled in the normal departmental disciplinary processes.




Issued by the Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) in KwaZulu-Natal.
