Netcare / fraud charges and terrible nursing care

1 South Africa Review updated:

My daughter had an emergency arterial bleed on her tiny wrist she is two an bled for a good 15minutes (Blood shooting out from her vains) non stop before we could get her to milpark. There she was attented to by the trauma people who couldnt do anything for her as she needed surgery to stich her vain. This was sunday at 6pm, so they kept her overnight as they felt it was risky sending the child home, but they did not look after her the entire night, did not take her vitals, she is two and bled a lot but plastics ward sisters didnt look after the child and after complaining to the hosp[ital thatno care was given during the night they just send an appology letter saying that they will deal with the sisters, but what bugs me is that they claim from discovery fraudulemntly for a service of overnight stay and care which they did not provide at all. Now the specialist de aguiar only operates on the child at 12pm next day while keeping the child hungry for almost 12hrs diue to no anaesthetist being available and still de aguiar claim r5247.34 for the op, discovery pays only r1708.6 and the difference is not 30% more as agreed. This is fraud and milpark must pay the difference

    complain to the Joint Commission on hospitals, but first have someone else who is much better at writing sort your story out for a much more credible presentation.
