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.
"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.
