Three doctors and a nurse have been suspended at the Bernice Samuel Hospital in Delmas, Mpumalanga.
Their suspension comes after an infant had her hand amputated following admission for a case of diarrhoea.
The child’s mother says Medical staff decided to insert a drip for the two-week-old infant because she was dehydrated.
A few days later, her daughter’s hand started turning purple.
Upon questioning nursing staff, she was repeatedly assured that the hand would return to normal.
The baby’s arm was then amputated a few days later at the Witbank Hospital.
The Mpumalanga provincial authorities have admitted to a possible case of negligence.
