Parirenyatwa Hospital has revealed that it has arrested 44 people who pretended to be employees at the medical institution to steal from staff members and patients in the past two years.

In a statement,  the Hospital revealed that bogus doctors and nurses are part of the offenders who were apprehended by its internal security and handed over to the police.  The development comes after news recently broke out that a bogus doctor was arrested, after he was caught while attending a patient.

“In 2023 alone, 33 offenders were picked up by our security department. From January 2024 to date, 11 cases of this nature have been picked up by the same department and dealt with accordingly.

“Bogus doctors and tutors who extort prospective student nurses and thieves who steal from both staff members and patients are some of the criminals who have been picked up and handed over to the police,” the hospital said.

The statement said offenders take advantage of the fact that the hospital has a big staff complement of almost 4000 people.

“Unscrupulous people take advantage of our vastness and complexity to carry out nefarious activities. Fortunately, our surveillance teams remain vigilant and have always apprehended these unruly elements who try to penetrate and abuse our systems,” said the hospital .
