#MURDER: #HospitalGenocide: Afrikaner man dies after emergency procedure is delayed for more than 24 hours later at Rob Ferreira state Hospital

Nelspruit – The family of a man who died after having undergone an emergency appendectomy in Rob Ferreira Hospital last month, are of the opinion that he died because the procedure was delayed.

Although an MRI scan indicated that the appendix of Mr James Boshoff (62) was on the verge of bursting, and it was advised that he undergo an appendectomy immediately, he was only operated on more than 24 hours later.

By then the appendix had already burst, and the poisonous content entered James’ body. The cause of death was indicated as sepsis and cardiac arrest.

Boshoff’s brother, Mr Flip Boshoff who resides in Gauteng, believes that James may still be alive had his brother been operated on sooner and feels that the hospital should be held accountable.

James worked in Hazyview and complained of stomach pain to his employer, Mr Meyer Odendaal, in the middle of March. “He took medication recommended by his pharmacist and experienced some relief, but the pain returned just before Easter weekend,” Odendaal recalled.

James went to a state clinic where he was referred to Rob Ferreira for an MRI scan. After waiting for more than 12 hours without being helped, Odendaal gave James cash to have a scan performed at Mediclinic Nelspruit.

“The doctor who analysed the results of the scan said that James’ appendix was about to burst. He phoned a doctor at Rob Ferreira, saying that James was on his way there and that he should be operated on immediately,” Odendaal recalled.

James was admitted on the morning of March 24, but was only taken to theatre the following day at about 13:00.
“We were told that James couldn’t be operated on immediately because a woman had to undergo an emergency C-section,” Flip said.

When he was wheeled out of theatre the following day, the doctor told the family that the “operation went well,” and that he also discovered a hernia which was repaired. According to the family, no mention was made that the appendix had already burst.

James was transferred to a normal ward and complained of severe pain and vomited constantly. He had a drainage tube in his abdomen which was removed the following day.

“His stomach was swollen like a balloon,” Flip said. James’ condition didn’t improve and the family was told that he would have to go back to theatre. He was on the operating table when he threw up again. Vomit entered his lungs and he suffered cardiac arrest.

James was revived, but was deemed not strong enough to undergo a second procedure. He was taken to ICU where he died on April 1.

“About three days after the first operation, we were standing outside the hospital when a doctor who was present during that operation told us that James’ appendix had actually already burst when he was cut open,” Ms Melanie Hood, James’ sister, told Lowvelder.

She agrees with Flip that, had their brother been operated on sooner, before the appendix burst, James’ chances on survival would have been greater.

Mr Dumisani Malamule, spokesman for the provincial Department of Health, said that there were other laparotomies which were in the queue for the specialist who conducted all operations, including the one of James.
“The operation went well. Even post operation the patient was doing well,” Malamule said.

He admitted that the appendix had burst before the first operation and added that it might have happened any time from the period he came to Rob Ferreira and before the operation.

“On March 30, his condition changed. Antibiotics were given as a precautionary measure for infection. The following day he was taken to theatre for a relook laparotomy. He however had a cardiac arrest before the second operation and therefore it was not done.”

Malamule said that Rob Ferreira has seven working theatres during normal working hours, but that after hours only one emergency theatre is used.

When asked what guidelines are used to determine the priority according to which emergency operations are being performed, he said that “the nature of the disease determines which operation is being conducted first”.

 #BringBackTheWhitePeople: 96 percent of all the so-named 'White" South Africans are barred from the job-market in South Africa under the ANC's more than 115 anti-white racelaws. Afrikaner children, children, pensioners and adults suffer from this deliberate policy of barring their wage-earners from jobs, and many of these families hide themselves away in tiny squatter camps in South Africa. They have no right to work, no rights to earning an income and no rights to get food-aid from charities: we are in desperate need of donations for food, vegetables, clothing, baby clothes, medicine, blankets and tents. The ANC government does not help: in fact the ANC-regime has also made laws which prohibit private and public charities and donor-charities from helping whites If they do, the ANC will cancel their non-profit registration with the government. More than 15-million black poor people get help from the government and from private charities in South Africa. But only very few charities dare to donate to help these Afrikaner squatters because of their fear of this law. Foreign charities and private donors are free to chose where they can send their money and their aid in South Africa This is a very desperate situation please help. We need assistance
