We’ve all experienced governmental hospitals at some time or the other before. The waiting times are long and the services provided can at times be rough. It’s not all bad, but really good ones only come once in a blue moon.
At times, they might be too busy to entertain all of their patients but in this story, we believe that each of the officers involved could’ve done more.
Hafizah, the patient, started to cough out thick blood at 5 am and requested for her housemate, Umie, to call an ambulance for her as she insisted that the hospital would not entertain them as well if they were to submit normally like other patients. Ambulances will give the impression of emergencies, you see.
When the ambulance arrived, the officers kept on asking questions of the suffocating patient despite seeing her in pools of blood. Can’t you at least help her breathe first?!
At Hospital Sultan Ismail, Johor Bahru, Hafizah was sent to the yellow zone and later was made to take a number and WAIT with the other patients because her cough toned down.
So they waited for 2 hours, just to be sent out again because the doctor insisted that she should have come according to the time in the appointment given to her before.
Even when the two explained that Hafizah was coughing bags of blood, the doctor shooed them away by saying that she couldn’t do anything outside of the appointed time and asked them to wait again for blood test results, which meant another two hours of waiting. That’s 4 hours in total! It was taking so long that Hafizah’s parents had arrived from Tangkak.
“Doctor! My friend is dying out there, you could have at least done something! Like letting her lie down or giving her some kind of medicine. Her cough is as bad as this morning and I can’t check her because I’m not the doctor here!”
Is this really the standard of doctors in our hospitals? Let’s hope that the doctor will truly learn responsibility for her patients and pray that Hafizah will recover soon.
