my reply

well,
there were many comment regarding my previous entry

occay,
here are the fact about medical service in Malaysia

The government hospital serve the citizen for free. The patient only pay a minimal amount.
hencefoward, not everyone appreciate this.
A simple blood taking would cost about rm10. If u are admitted for dengue fever, there will be more than 10 blood takings...
and that was just blood taking alone..
other cost? did any of us realize how much health care is really costing the government???
and yet, nobody appreciate the government hospital.
sigh

regarding the previous issue
i'm sure the "cucu" has communication issue with the doctor from the private hospital.
Any doctor would understand , that stage 4 cancer has no definite cure.
hence, he's not actually referring the grandmother to the government hospital to be cured.
Just for palliative care.
therefore, that particular case is not on top of the list for the oncologist in HKL

Do you have any idea how many oncologist we have in Malaysia?
how many of them work in HKL?
there are less than 20 oncologist in malaysia.
and most of them works at private hospital.

and guess... how many oncology patients we have in Malaysia??
A LOT!

from that big amount of patients with cancers ,
there are a big fraction of them who are in early stages and still have chance to be cured..
and these people are the priority to the oncologist

for those with stage 4, even the best oncologist has nothing much to say about it.
which explained , why the oncology at HKL was not in rush to see the grandmother.

HKL is a government hospital. It's a very busy hospital
there are many emergency cases there.
be patient,
it's free after all.

doctor would prioritize the patients that we are able to cure and save.

for example , in case of pregnant lady - the mother is the priority coz the mother is alive. the baby is not alive yet in the real world.

so, be considerate.
we doctors, always do the best we could.

we came early to work , came back home late everyday , but we never claimed overtime..
and u all still call us inconsiderate?
funny as it is..

if u have someone works as doctor in ur family,
then u would know how hard life as a doctor is.

to those medical students who read my blog...
life as a medical students and real doctors are totally different.
just keep reading ur book.
u have long way to go.
when u start working, then u'll understand what i really meant.
u have no idea how is it in the real world as a doctor.

yup,our citizen's didn't know that our country spends lots of money on medication...they didn't realize that our country has a big monney issue on this...sooner or later,there'll be no free service anymore...like in other counrty,they have to pay insurance if they want to be treated...i bet malaysia some day will use this method...n usually our citizen didn't know bout the prognosis...doctor is not a god,n the suffered patient that has no hope can't be survive eventhough how many doctors treated him/her...n the no of doctors in malaysia is a big issue n everyone knows it...everyone hv to be tolarate with each other n don't juz blame each other...its written that the patient will die,its he/her destiny,let he/she gone peeacefully,nothing much we can do bout it...well,its juz my opinion...i'm not a doctor,i'm a medical student...being in this field make me understand that everyone is tryin their bez to do the job,but the rest,leave it to GOD....sorry for that 'cucu malang'...don't blame others because his/her 'nenek' die,its written,got it???

agree again hannan.

its because of the communication issue.

as i commented in your previous entry, we tend to look down on the gov hosp. just because we pay less it doest mean we should be less appreciative.

i'm very sorry that u need to work more than 24hrs a day.so, tell me doc, do you really want to work that hard? u 'have' to work more hours..it's not that u want to work more hours rite? and now u're blaming on the system. who made the system? it's you healthworker who made it. so, don blame the system. if you want it to be better, you need to work on it. if you have to work more hrs, don blame it on the patients.
we the public never look down on the gvrmnt, in fact gov. hosp. have the best specialist. but, it's the healthworker who made the system even slower & uneffective. i'm not blaming on the doctor,it just the attitude of majority of the doctors & other health workers. i think y'all need to work more on your comm. skill & soft skill. haraf maaf kalau tsilap kata, cuma nak memberi pendapat. the public now are more knowledgable than before.

yes, bila public komplain mmg public salah, judgemental & ungrateful. yes we all know that u doctors are not saint or God. who are we to judge u rite? But u on other hand can definitely judge us. i'm sure dr hans only serve as HO for only 1yr++. Before that u're abroad doing medcine. how would u know the situation. I have been admitted to private & gvrnment hosp. some of the private suck & surprisingly one gvrmn hosp that i've been are good.
senang cerita...kalau nak improve sesuatu system mahupun situasi hendaklah bkerjasama diantara hosp. juga pesakit. kami beri komen, kamu improve...secara tak lansung kami pun akan satisfy. then it's a win win situation.
kepasa komen2 yg diatas..kamu cuma student sahaja. tak tahu dgn sistem hospital. habiskan belajar & buat pembaharuan then baru layak utk komen.

"kepasa komen2 yg diatas..kamu cuma student sahaja. tak tahu dgn sistem hospital. habiskan belajar & buat pembaharuan then baru layak utk komen" (sya_zazoo, 2010)

very enlightening, coming from someone who deals with students daily, and are supposed to make the students able to think critically and rationally. I wonder what kind of persons she wants her students to be. Dumb, in all sense of the word, perhaps?

one can also assume that she is VERY well-versed in 'sistem hospital' to be able to make comments here...

sya_zazoo said...

here comes the perempuan again. as usual judgemental & silo minded. this is definitely personal attack i presume.hmm..sy tak perlu menjadi like-able to be heard. sy pun tak perlu kipas2 utk meraih populariti. i'm just saying my point of view. but seeing your reaction pun dh cukup utk membuat konklusi how defensive u are & so do ur fans.what can i say..perempuan is well-verse of me...since i so called fofular..;)

Perempuan said...

Seems like sya_zazoo failed to see my point. I guess I would have to write in Malay in order for sya_zazoo to understand.

Memang tak perlu mengipas untuk meraih populariti. Berbogel di khalayak ramai juga boleh meraih populariti untuk seseorang. Sama juga dengan kemampuan untuk didengari; tak perlu menjadi seorang yang disukai ramai. Adolf Hitler dan Radovan Karadzic juga didengari, bukan?

Cuma saya sangsi, kenalkah sya_zazoo dengan Hitler dan Karadzic?
