Members affiliated to the Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (Denosa) took to the streets of Tshwane on Thursday.
Nurses and student nurses held a joint march to highlight the plights of nurses in facilities around the City of Tshwane.
Mogomotsi Seleke, regional Secretary of Denosa in Tshwane says nurses have been forced to re-use personal protective equipment (PPE).
“The reason for the march is because the department (of health) does not want to protect nurses by giving them PPEs. The department is forcing nurses to re-use them.”
Seleke adds that another reason for the march is due to nothing being done to ensure the safety of the nurses, who get attacked by communities.
“Our nurses are not safe, our nurses are attacked and are brutalized by the community. There isn’t enough security in the workplaces. We are asking them to absorb all security and increase the number.”
