Pretoria - The situation at Mamelodi Day Hospital is chaotic and is moving towards a state of being like a mortuary, said Gauteng Premier David Makhura.
This was during his surprise visit to the hospital to inspect the level of service delivery.
The hospital is where a 76-year-old patient from Eersterus, Martha Marais, was tied to the benches of the waiting area last month.
Makhura was told about poor services and a lack of respect from the hospital staff.
Water leaks inside the toilets and allegations of missing patient's files were among the bitter complaints aired by the community.
