Our doctors and nurses have been working tirelessly at the frontlines since this pandemic crept its way back into our country. The very least of what they deserve is to stay in clean and sanitary conditions.

Recently, a patient who wishes to remain anonymous shared his experience of staying in a quarantine centre at Sungai Buloh that had less than satisfactory hygiene conditions. The premise is said to house a number of healthcare workers who have been similarly infected.

During his time at the quarantine centre, he said the doctors and nurses were all professional and worked endlessly. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for the cleanliness of the institution.

“We were told to put our rubbish bags outside our room and that there will be personnel who will come and pick it up. However, throughout my few days stay, the rubbish just continued to stack up at the corridors,” he told WOB.

Sadly, it wasn’t just the stacked rubbish that was an issue. The patient also shared photos of the staircase which looked like it had not been maintained well for months, “Look at the stairs. Look at all the dust collecting. I strongly believe no has swept the floor in weeks or months.”

“I understand that this is not a hotel and we can’t clean all the rooms but at least provide a broom for us to borrow from the counter to clean our room and return it. If they are not able to pick up all the garbage, please tell us so we can put it in a designated area. Someone should be assigned to clean the common area as well,” he added.

He said that since the quarantine centre is being used by Covid-19 patients, they need trained personnel to ensure the maintenance of hygiene in these matters. Nonetheless, the patient stressed that the medical professionals at the centre were doing a great job. “It’s just the management problem for not arranging cleaners or maintaining the hygiene of this place”.
