Celebrating South Africa's Rich Heritage at St. Joseph's Intermediate Paediatric Care 🇿🇦✨

On this special occasion of South Africa Heritage Day, the vibrant and diverse culture of our nation came alive at St. Joseph's Intermediate Paediatric Care. St Joseph's IPC donned traditional attire shared their stories, and indulged in a colorful array of South African cuisines. From Xhosa beadwork to Cape Malay Cuisine, the cultural tapestry was woven with pride and joy.

This day was not just about celebrating the past, but also about fostering unity and inclusivity among the young patients, their families, and the dedicated healthcare professionals who work tirelessly to provide care. The spirit of Ubuntu, the belief in a universal bond that connects all humanity, was palpable in every smile and interaction.

It was a day of laughter, education, and community, reminding us all that our diversity is our strength, and our heritage is something to be treasured and shared.

South Africa Heritage Day at St. Joseph's Intermediate Paediatric Care was a heartwarming reminder that, in the face of challenges, the resilience and unity of our nation shine brightly. 🌍❤️

Breastfeeding with Theresa 31/07/2023

Breastfeeding is an integral part of mother and child health and development as the benefits of breastfeeding are well documented around the world. Theresa believes that every single person can play an active role in promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding, even if they haven't personally breastfed a baby. This is not a mandate that is limited to maternity wards only, but includes all of us, even within our personal lives.

Join her on Wednesday 2 August when she kicks off Breastfeeding week with her views on the benefits of breastfeeding.
Discussion points include:

• Benefits of breastfeeding a sick child

• Supporting breastfeeding during hospitalisation

• Options of feeding - WHO order of optimal infant feeding

• National Dept of Health: 6 Safe Conditions for Infant Formula Feeding

• HIV and breastfeeding

• Breastfeeding and returning to Work.

Mandela Day 2023 Patient Welfare Projects

Laundry Equipment and consumables
Providing intermediate care to 175 medically fragile children is our primary service. We must therefore maintain strict hygiene and cleaning protocols. The average stay of our young patients is six months. Our washing machines and driers are in operation daily to clean the children’s bedding, clothing, and towels. Wet weather in the winter months in addition to loadshedding increases the use of the laundry equipment. Just recently one of machines ceased, making it more difficult to get the washing done during the restricted power supply times. To replace a 25kg washing machine is costly. In addition, we spend close to R200k on laundry cleaning consumables per annum.

Food security
Depending on the diagnosis of our young patients, our resident dietitian formulates an eating plan for each child. We provide 3 meals daily (365 days p.a.) + snacks + school lunches as well as food packs for their hospital appointments. Our food bill per annum amounts to just over R1m.

Garden spaces
We’re creating inviting patient / parent garden spaces. This Mandela Day we’d like to spruce up our gardens and we invite you to donate an iceberg rose bush or a lemon or orange tree.

We all know that many hands make light work, so if you’re keen to roll-up your sleeves and work on the garden project please contact us.

We welcome assistance in any of these areas. Connect with us on [email protected].

Huge thanks to our Child Protection Committee for initiating a week long sock drive and encouraged staff to donate socks to keep those little and not so little feet of our precious patients warm. SJH Staff you are the best! Thank you for collectively donating over 300 pairs of socks.
