Something i experienced and want to share…
So i went to KTPH on 3rd March at about 8pm to send my mum, because she was having bad stomach flu. After doing some registration, we had to wait for the nurse to call our number to do some check-up. There was me, my sister and my brother. While waiting outside the room. I saw an indian worker walked in, with two other indian worker. One of them had his hand on the left covered with handkerchief. And the handkerchief was covered with blood. He was walking back and fro from the registration counter and the toilet. Probably because he dont know how to stop the bleeding.
So many people witnessed him. He looks very very tired and exhausted. Almost faint face he got. I looked at him with a very very disheartened emotions. The doctors and nurses saw him. But no one went to ask if he was okay. His both friends went to register his particular. So he was sitting beside me. I looked at him from top to bottom. And make a fuss to my brother. Saying that nobody attended to him. HE WAS BLEEDING PROFUSELY. I repeat BLEEDING PROFUSELY. and no one attend to him.
So i told my brother can someone do something. Because im really sad to see him in so much pain walking around with covered with full blooded handkerchief. So my brother went to the counter, and told one of the nurse personally. Only then, the nurse attended to him. After checking him, he went out with some kind of wrap that the doctor provide, to stop his bleeding.
To my shocked, the nurse came back to my brother and say ” he actually broke his bones “. Im like… 🙁 From then on. I keep on a lookout for him. Incase he needed urgent help.
HIS BOSS ARRIVED LATE, and WENT BACK EARLY. And DID NOT EVEN ACCOMPANY OR ASKED HIM IF HE IS FINE OR NOT no sense of humanity huh?
After then, i settled my mum document and everything. And parked her wheelchair near the payment counter. Because we need to wait for other reports. And i didnt realize, the same indian guy was on the wheelchair beside my mum. His hands was stitched, and bandage. But he was on drip this time. But the bottle was smaller unlike the usual one.
He was very pale, and sick, and tired, and sleepy. I literally kept a look out for him because i guess not all will actually gave a helping hand to such person. Simply because SOCIETY IS JUDGEMENTAL.
As we were waiting, i saw his drip stopped. So i told my sister. My sister went to the nurse and told the nurse abt him and his dripped. The first time. The nurse ignored. So we just kept quiet. The nextime i looked at him, inside the tube that was connected to his dripped, there was blood. So i told my sister again. She went inside and told the nurse. The nurse went out to adjust for him. So the dripped continue as normal. While waiting again, the dripped stopped. I told my sister again. My sister went into the room again, and inform the nurse abt it. The nurse didnt come out and attend to him, tho she acknowledge my sister and said ” OKAY “. We thot they were preparing another bottle of drip. But no. They didnt. And attened to others.
The next thing i saw was his tube was covered with more blood. Like literally blood flowing out inside the tube. I told my sister quickly to call the nurse. Only then the male nurse came out and took out the dripped. Because there was no more dripped!!! By then i already settled my mums report. And there was a commotion abt him and his friends because th nurses was finding his boss. But his boss went back.
I share this story because, personally i feel that in Singapore. These are the people we need the most, who worked non stop, left their families to find a bowl of rice to feed their families. These are the people who build our homes. And these are the people who risked themselves during rainy days and in the dark. and i want people to have a sense of humanity. Theres so many people who went in and out of the hospital. And theres so many cases happening.
But its not wrong isnt it to attend to somebody who really is in need?? More over he was bleeding. With alot of blood. He wud prolly die because he lost alot of blood. But if everyone is ego and doesnt want to help simply because he is not local, or wtv you guys thing. Its unfair. This guy might be somebody dad, this guy might be somebody husband, this guy might have a baby who still needs him. So why? Why do we not have some sense of sympathy or atleast humanity?
I hope this guy gets well soon and hope his stitched will heal soon. In shaa allah.
A LITTLE BIT OF KINDNESS DOES NOT KILL.
