Consumerist: Another Hospital Fiasco – Incompetence Runs Wild Despite Cosmetic Claims of Professionalism at MOH?
I am not the least shocked that another mishap has happened in Malaysia’s public hospital
s and certain that hundreds of thousands of other Malaysians also feel the same anger as I do at the continued incompetence, lack of professionalism and basically irresponsibility that is nakedly seen!
I wonder why in the years of the 50’s to 80’s nothing as shocking as these have been witnessed?
Perhaps then people were dedicated, sacrificed and serve with utter competence?
We did not have politicians and their cronies taking advantage of tenders, procurements, building and construction and security contracts, even some allegedly given price sensitive information on aging hospital equipments and other needs to prepare a dossier and put in a bit?
There are also ‘Surat Sokongans’ being given all around shamelessly even for patient treatment!
Shocking and shameless!
I know for a fact that when Dr Chua Soi Lek was Minister of Health he put a stop to this abuse and nonsense and much to his credit!
So today it is part of the front portion ceiling of the dermatology clinic at the Specialist Clinic Complex, Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh that came crashing down at about 6am today.
Thank the ALMIGHTY that there were no casualties were reported in the incident which discovered by a security guard. Twenty ceiling boards fell to the floor.
Anyway it is not the only hospital to have suffered this fate!
Not long ago – HKL’s Ambulatory Care Centre caught fire before it could open.
At Serdang Hospital the ceiling collapsed!
The much spoke about hospital at Sungai Buloh’s OT has yet to open and I wonder why?
At Klang hospital we seem to have more CCTV’s than security guards and that hospital also needs a lift but at the manner contracts are given out with crony contractors one just wonders what would happen there?
In Sabah we cannot but wonder what is happening to the much once praised Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s fate?
And yes while we are on a roll here, what is the state of the cost over-run Shah Alam Hospital?
