CGH SENDS DEBT COLLECTORS TO RECOVER $37 UNPAID HOSPITAL BILL, GETS LECTURED BY BRAVE S'PORE MAN

Facebook user Manfred Tan uploaded a 25 min long telephone conversation between an angry CGH patient and the staff of CGH's business department. In it, the patient railed at the CGH staff for using legal debt collectors to recover the $37 he owed to the hospital. He claimed that the debt collector's tone was harsh and it intimidated his wife and kids. For most of the conversation, the CGH staff was dumbstruck and could not respond to the Singaporean man's incisive questioning on why the Govt needs to use such heartless tactics to recover a paltry sum like $37.

FRAIL ELDERLY WITH DEEP CUT FORGOTTEN BY DOCTORS AT CGH

She was supposed to have a surgical procedure to clean the wound and patch her up that day, said the surgical team of doctors who came to see her and the wound that late afternoon. “But that depends on whether there will be more serious emergencies coming in, which will mean her less urgent case will be pushed aside,” said one. It was a refrain that was repeated and repeated with no end.

That was Tuesday, and now it is Thursday night. For 3 days, the poor weak woman stared as her roommates had their breakfasts, then lunches, then dinners and their little tea breaks. Her No Food, No Drinks label stared out behind her.

CGH GAVE MY DAD EXPIRED MEDICATION, TOLD ME TO 'CHILL OUT' WHEN CONFRONTED

My dad was found to have fungus in the nail by the Polyclinic last year & referred to CGH for treatment as they only treat athletes foot at their level. However, the fungus in my dad's nail did not subside even after a year's quarterly treatment @ CGH and I begin to feel suspicious at this point. I then checked the labels & to my horror, found that the last prescription in Apr 2016 contained medications that'd already expired! Furious, I called the corporate affairs for clarification & they told me "lapses do occur in a big hospital" & "to not think too much about it".

DO S'POREANS HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TREATMENT BY INCOMPETENT FOREIGN DOCTORS?

I was in SGH to see a bone & nerve specialist. I was attended by two junior doctors one of whom is a local and the other, obviously, a trainee FT from India. While the local doctor asked related questions to understand my complaints, the FT kept quiet most of the time but when he spoke, it was irrelevant questions! I fear that such doctors when phased in spells disasters if not, bad choice of Singaporeans looking for a medical cure.
