Another Mzansi nurse has been commended by grateful South Africans. Matimba Hlungwani, a nurse at Milpark hospital received a lot of praise from Mzansi after Tshameleni Malungani shared in Facebook's ImStaying how he went out of his way to make her elderly dad feel at ease during a difficult hospital stay.
"This young man is the reason I am staying. His name is Matimba Hlungwani, a male nurse at Milpark Hospital. My dad, who is 84 years old, was admitted for the past 3 weeks. Since you can't visit your loved ones during Level 3 to check on them you have to phone.
"Every time when I call to check on my dad I was told my dad doesn't want to be nursed by female nurses but prefers Matimba. This young man will use his airtime to call me and say my dad wants to speak to me as he didn't understand why no one was visiting him.
"This young man will make sure that I speak to my dad every single day. Today it was so emotional when he was discharged and saying to me this boy has a good heart and God will protect him. He said he was taking good care of me and so respectfully. These days we hear terrible stories about nurses especially elderly people who are helpless," she wrote gratefully.
Hannah ThinaZandie Blackbite said:
"May God continue to bless his soul. Ayenze nakwabanye."
Chantal Holt said:
"Thank you Matimba, may God bless you abundantly."
In similar touching Briefly.co.za news, a grateful South African man, Re-Marius Hamel, recently dedicated a heartfelt thank you post to a nurse called Tebogo who had helped make his rough eight-week hospital stay feel a whole lot better with his amazing service.
"This young man Tebogo was at my side for 8 weeks! A great example of what nurses should be like. I was not allowed visitors and he was tolerant during my deliriums, my absolute horrific trips, my attempts to jump or escape! Didn't know where I was.
"Thanx my friend, for helping me through the most horrific time of my life. Tebogo! Thanx Dr Slade (what a cool name!) Vermaak (spinal surgeon) Dr De Klerk (physician) and the rest of the team of doctors at Groenkloof," he wrote.
