Family of elderly woman abused at Mamelodi Hospital lays charges
The family of an elderly woman who was abused at a Mamelodi Day Hospital has laid a charge against the institution.
A video of 76-year-old “Ouma” Martha Marais was circulated on social media this week where she is seen tied to a steel bench at the hospital.
Virginia Keppler, a representative of the family, says Marais is being taken better care of but is not herself.
She is scared, she does not want to be at the Mamelodi Day Hospital anymore. The family also want her to be transferred to the Steve Biko Hospital but that is ultimately not up to the family.Virginia Keppler, Family representative
I cannot explain to you what the family is going through at the moment, more so Ouma Marais.Virginia Keppler, Family representative
Every single person who walked past her saw that. Staff members should have said but this is wrong, and no one did. We do not have any information on why they did that but it doesn't matter, it doesn't justify what they did.Virginia Keppler, Family representative
