The Eastridge Clinic in Cape Town is beefing up security after a 23-year-old man was fatally shot, according to an article on the News 24 website.
"The clinic will revisit security arrangements . . in the wake of this incident – budget dependent,” a clinic spokesperson said.
The Eastridge Clinic complies with the National Health Department’s Ideal Clinic Framework for Primary Healthcare Facilities which requires clinics to have a dedicated security guard on site or an alarm system installed that is linked to armed response.
The Eastridge Clinic staff also have panic buttons linked to the City’s Law Enforcement Rapid Response Unit.
