Sick suffer at 'sinking' hospital
Durban - Doctors at Addington Hospital have been forced to turn away hundreds of patients over malfunctioning medical machinery.
A broken radio-therapy machine - valued at R80-million - is just one example in a list of issues that plague the hospital. Two of these machines are not in working order.
The problem seems to have fallen on the Department of Health's alleged unpaid maintenance contracts.
And the inefficient hospital has now caused a massive backlog at other hospitals.
