The security officials involved in the scandal have now been fired, while the nurses who were on duty when the incident happened are being subjected to a disciplinary hearing.
It is believed the incident took place last week Thursday and was only brought to the attention of hospital management on Friday.
Some South Africans are calling for the two security guards to be criminally charged.
