So, I just came back from Candos Hospital after driving a patient with minor pains for some medical assistance. Here’s a small report :
- Card registration officer has been talking on his mobile phone using earpiece for at least 10mins while it has been clearly written on his own desk that mobile phones and earpieces are prohibited.
- A kid has vomited in the main hall in the presence of medical staff and nothing has been cleaned during the time I was there. I’m hereby talking about a 20 mins time period.
- A ‘infirmier’ in the treatment room has been blowing soap bubbles ( just like kids do, with the toys). No need to say that the soap bubbles were scattered all over that room including the equipment.
- The doctor who attended the patient did not even look at the latter and prescribed the medicines.
Wow. I’m glad that I’m covered by a medical insurance that allows me to seek PROFESSIONAL medical services in private clinics and private hospitals but I’m sorry for all those who need to rely on the public health sector. It is unfortunate that these same government servants ( doctors and medical staff) would have been behaving completely differently in case they were in the private sector.
If anyone needs precise details, feel free to get in touch. Day & time of visit : Tuesday 29th December 2015, around 9pm. I’m personally not interested to write an official complaint but if that situation prevailed in a life threatening case, I would have definitely taken this more seriously, including shooting some pics and videos.
I thought that my previous article was going to be the last one. Here goes my wishes again :
Happy New Year!
