Waiting Time

WAITING TIME AT HOSPITAL TOO LONG, EVEN THOUGH APPOINTMENT WAS MADE EARLY

Anyway, there were many patients so I just have to wait. Ok I am waiting and it is up to 1 pm, but still no signs of me being called to see the doctor. And then, from where I am sitting down, I saw this notice board right in front of the counter staff "Mutual Respect - our employees deserve respect. " Here I am, my appointment time supposed to be 11:40 am, and now past 1 pm and still no sign of the doctor, so now I am wondering how about the hospital showing us some mutual respect for the time some of us took off from work and some took time off from things to do at home.

DENTAL PROBLEMS MAY TAKE 1 YEAR BEFORE TREATMENT GIVEN AT DENTAL CENTRE

The government have given out goodies in terms of subsidised dental treatments. However, the demand for dental treatments far outstripped the what the dentists in the public sector can cope with, thus this long wait of a year or more for their treatment. Among treatments mentioned are those for serious dental problems such as periodontitis or severe gum infection. Going to a private dentist are expensive, thus this queue for dentists in the public sector.

Brings question such as why is there a lack of dentists in the public sector available. Again, a lack of foresight, of proper planning? Or just pure dumb luck that dental problems suddenly became a big issue?

88 YR OLD MAN WAITS 36 HRS BEFORE GETTING A BED AT KHOO TECK PUAT HOSPITAL

My 88-year old grandfather was conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) from Woodlands Polyclinic on 31/07/14 (Thursday) after he had a bad fall and injured himself. He was registered at KTPH A&E at 12.06pm. Later that day, after underwent x-ray and scanning, as suggested by the doctor, the family agreed to have him admitted for further observation. He stayed overnight at the A&E Care Corner as there was no available bed at any of the subsidised wards and we were told that the waiting time was expected to be at least 36 hours.
