Rate Entabeni Hospital
Ratings for Entabeni Hospital
I went to the emergency room at Entabeni Hospital with a high fever. The nurse was very personable and the doctor diagnosed my illness very quickly as tick bite fever. I was administered an IV antibiotic and given a 5 day course to take home. Sounds great right? The problem is the doctor treated it with the wrong, broad spectrum antibiotic. Two weeks after I returned home the United States, the bacterial infection returned WITH A VENGEANCE! I was hospitalized for two days and had an 8 day course of antibiotics to take home. This time it is the right antibiotic -- one that is recommended not only in the U.S. for tick fever but also in South Africa. Despite this, the doctor at Entabeni Hospital administered the wrong antibiotic and the bacteria was not killed. I am stunned that a SA doctor could not treat a condition that originates in SA, and I had to come home to get proper treatment. Scary and a clear case of malpractice. Stay away from this dirty hospital. Poor treatment and no infection control!
