KwaDukuza Private Hospital (KPH), would like to confirm that 176 staff, inclusive of service providers were tested for Covid-19 and all tested negative.
Our findings and outcome of results, indicate that the Specialist who tested positive, contracted the virus outside of the facility, and was self-isolating prior to him being symptomatic. He has been self-isolating, and will resume duties once he has fully recovered, and it is safe to do so.
All necessary steps have been taken to ensure that KPH is a safe environment during this pandemic and all staff are adhering to the Department of Health (DOH) and National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) guidelines.
To date, no positive patients have been admitted to the facility.
The Specialists and staff of KwaDukuza Private Hospital remain committed to ensure that no person is compromised in any way, while providing excellent healthcare to our patients. We’d like to thank the public for respecting our updated rules and regulations and thank you for your continued support.
