Mathys, Ms L to ask the Minister of Health
Whether he has been informed of faulty elevator lights, faulty air conditioning equipment and exposed wires at Themba Hospital in Mbombela, Mpumalanga; if so, what steps is his department taking to address these issues?
According to the Mpumalanga Provincial Department of Health, the bulbs in the lifts are often vandalised or removed for theft. As a temporary measure, the Department has installed the fluorescent bulbs to avoid theft as they are not prone to theft.
Air-conditioning equipment are out of order. However the maintenance contractor is on-site and is being assisted by the manufacturer of air-cons (Samsung) to install new parts.
