University Hospital’s A&E unit in a mess!

June 27, 2012

FMT LETTER: From Rani Nadesan, via e-mail

Did you know that University Hospital is not able to cope with patients in the accident and emergency unit? Patients are left sleeping on the walk way within the emergency unit. They are left waiting for days because there are no beds available in the wards.

Are we progressing or regressing? Are we ready to claim that we are on the way to achieving  developed nation status by 2020. Are there genuine leaders who are keen in upgrading the commoners’ lifestyle?

You can check the facts by visiting UH during the night to see if patients are left sleeping in the walk way or interview those who are bedded in emergency care centre to find out how many nights they have spent there.

The doctors manning the centre are foreigners mostly. There is only one toilet with no bathing facilities. So, how do the patients take their bath? They have to collect water from the tap and take bath and there is no hot water supply.

There is no segregation between male and female patients. I was shocked at such a finding in one of the most affluent cities in Malaysia. Do you also realise the fact that there are no government hospitals in PJ and Shah Alam, the most populated areas in Klang Valley.

Thus the reason for the overcrowding in UH. Does the Federal Government realise how basic medical needs have been denied?
