powerless ambulance.....


7 august 2011 .... it has been 7 days we have been fasting
i wish everyone is at the best health  !

in my previous post - i promise to write one whole story about ambulance..
as we all know - ambulance is a transportation for sick people..
and the aim is to bring sick people to the hospital safely and of course as fast as possible.
that's why the ambulance is equipped with siren ... and a lot of neon light
to make sure all other drivers are aware of it present on the road
it's a well know rules that other drivers must give way to the ambulance to pass thru so it can reach the hospital in time to save the life

nevertheless , there are a few part of malaysian driver who are still ignorant of this issue
it's such an eyesore to see a car driving slowly in the middle of the road with an ambulance carrying patient , with it's siren n neon going on... trying hard to overtake this slow driver..
worse still... that bastard driver was so busy using the phone or chatting with his bloody passanger.

as a doctor , sometimes we have to accompanied very ill patient who need to be transported to the other hospital for further treatment

i was once was working at the district hospital
as we all know , district hospital doesnt have icu ward
hence , if there is any patient who needed icu care , we need to send the patient to the referral hospital..

one day at that district hospital, 
there was one sick little girl who needed icu care.
hence we needed to transport her
i was in charge on the day 
and i accompanied her on the ambulance...
sitting by her side in the ambulance...
worse case scenario... her condition was quite unstable..
half way to the destination..
her condition detoriated..
i looked her in the eyes and i could see tears coming out from her eyes..
i was panicked
there are so little i could do inside the ambulance
i asked the driver to drive as fast as he caN...

BUT  , it irked me ... so many driver in front of us refused to give way
some tried to speed faster - but in the end costed more congestion...
when we reached the traffic light...
none of the cars from the opposite ways tried to stop to give way to us..
we have to wait for green light likes other cars...
i was so frustrated...
i felt like jumping out from the ambulance and went into the middle of the road and scream at everyone to stop the traffic to let us go thru..
but i cant leave her...

i did my best...
and she saw me sweating... panting... rushing...
and she hold my hand...
as we reached the hospital..
it was too late for her...
but before she closed her eyes for eternity ...
she looked at me and smiled at me..
and she murmured. ..."thank you doctor "..
and there she left this cruel world...

if only we could have reach earlier..
she could have been alive.....

hanya disebabkan sikap pengguna jalan raya yang selfish, satu nyawa yang sepatutnya boleh diselamatkan telah pergi selama-lamanya~

saya yang baca ni pun rasa nak jerit "ke tepi ke tepi"~ bukan boleh saman ke pemandu macam ni, bagi beringat sikit~
