Dead baby horror at Kopanong Hospital
10 September 2014
I am horrified by the [Sowetan] report that Ms Yolanda Rakhajane was made to sleep with her dead baby at the Kopanong Hospital in Vereeniging.
According to Rakhajane, after she gave birth to the stillborn baby last Saturday night, nurses handed it back to her and she fell asleep with the baby in her arms.
When she asked the nurses the next morning to take the body away, she was told the morgue was closed on weekends.
The baby was then wrapped in plastic, covered in a blanket and placed on a trolley near her bed.
