There 5 types of doctors in government hospital.
Firstly there are house officers , there are medical officers , there are specialist, there are consultants and on top of the cascade there are head of departments plus the hospital director. So, the system is like the pyramid system.
Sometimes it also known as the " kasta" system in india... In which, the housemen are the pariah.
the house officers are technically are the "buruh indon+bangla" at the hospital.
Bak kata pepatah... " House officer = kerja angkat najis"
When a patient first came to the hospital, they will be attended by house officers. If at emergency department, there will be only senior house officer.. So, no problem there.
The not so funny part happened in ward. If u are admitted, 90 % of chances u ll be seen by a house officer first. So, they are the people who decided ur case is emergency or not...
If u are attended by senior houseman.. U r fine. If u attended by new houseman... Then u might have some difficulty.
But no worry, all cases must be informed to resident medical officer and they will review u , regardless of everything.
So that explained why in government hospital u have to tell the same story over and over again to different doctors. All because of this pyramid system.
