Aircon failure halts surgery at Rahima Moosa Hospital
4 December 2014
Caesarean sections have been halted this week at the Rahima Moosa Mother and Child hospital in west Johannesburg after air-conditioning units failed in the operating theatres.
All ambulances have been directed to other hospitals while the problem is sorted out.
This is very disruptive and distressing for both patients and staff.
Yet again there has been a failure of preventive maintenance by the Gauteng Department of Infrastructure Development.
