JOHANNESBURG - Health Ombudsman Professor Malegapuru Makgoba says the number of patient deaths at Tower Hospital in the Eastern Cape can't be compared to Life Esidimeni.

The Office of the Health Ombudsman on Thursday released a report into the Tower Psychiatric Hospital and Psychosocial Rehabilitation Centre.

Makgoba released findings of his probe into patient mismanagement allegations at the psychiatric hospital.

It comes after allegations of patient mismanagement and rights violations.
