2 YR OLD GIRL HAS RARE LIVER DISEASE, FAMILY DESPERATE TO RAISE FUNDS FOR HER SURGERY

Family members of Viona Qiu are desperately asking for donations so that they can pay for their 2-year-old daughter's chemotherapy and surgeries. Viona is so young but already diagnosed with hepatoblastma, a rare condition in which the liver becomes enlarged and cannot function properly. Her gall bladder has collapsed to. The family is from Batam but were told to come to Singapore for treatment due to the lacking facilities over there. They now face the trouble of paying her exorbitant medical fees and are begging for donations to help poor Viona recover.

DID KK HOSPITAL BREACH DOC-PATIENT CONFIDENTIALITY BY SENDING SMS REMINDER TO WRONG PERSON?

Yesterday I received a SMS reminder from KK hospital about an appointment that I did not have. It turns out that they had mistakenly a reminder for someone else's appointment to my handphone number. I am wondering if it is ethical and morally right for a hospital to send the SMS reminder to the wrong person because now I know the identity of the person who is seeking treatment from which doctor for which disease. Where is the doctor-patient confidentiality?

KK HOSPITAL A&E DEPT CHARGED PRIVATE RATES & GAVE SUBSTANDARD MEDICAL CARE

I just discovered on 9 Oct 2015, when i went to KK hospital in an apparent emergency gynae issue as recommended by my GP, only to realise that their practice of emergency charges is not consistent with A&E depts of other public funded hospitals. When queried, staff said that theirs is called an "O&G 24 hr clinic" and not called the A&E. Hence, walk-in patients in emergency cases are charged private rates. This info wasnt made known upfront to me until i saw my bill.
