AGGRESSIVE TAN TOCK SENG SECURITY GUARD HARASSED ME & MY FAMILY

I entered the ward and went straight to the doctor to continue our discussion but this security guard Matthew continued to harass me at the door insisting and debating that I should not ask him to walk faster. Is this the way how professional security guard should behave? Basically, he was paid to be security guard to be there to do his job and I have already exchanged for the f**king 15 minutes Pagar so it was definitely not my fault when he was not there to open the door for me.

TAN TOCK SENG SPECIALISTS WERE UNPROFESSIONAL IN TREATING MY MEDICAL CONDITION!

Singapore's Tan Tock Seng Hospital's orthopaedic surgery department is most immoral, lousy and most unprofessional. Singapore doctors very seldom explain automatically the effectiveness of the treatments they suggested or listen to the patient's prior opinion before carrying out patient examination or treatment. There is often a waste of time and make the patients feel very unpleasant and in very bad mood.

TAN TOCK SENG HOSPITAL SACKS TRASH TALKING FILIPINO NURSE

We have dismissed Mr Ello Ed Mundsel Bello from our Hospital immediately for his offensive online comments made in 2014 while in our Hospital’s employment. These comments were highly irresponsible and offensive to Singapore and religion. They have distressed members of the public and our hospital staff.

PINOY NURSE WHO PUT SINGAPOREAN PATIENTS AT RISK STILL NOT SACKED BY TTSH!

A screenshot of the offending post went viral on various social media platforms over the weekend but the nurse, who went by the Facebook name Edz Ello, has claimed that his account was hacked. In the post, the writer had called Singaporeans losers, and said that he was praying for disasters to "strike Singapore". Several netizens, however, have cast doubt on the nurse's claim that the disparaging posts were made by a hacker. They cited screenshots of similarly insulting comments made from his account some two weeks ago.

TTSH STOP FAMILY MEMBERS FROM VISITING THEIR DYING MOTHER

A member of the public, Mr Loke Wing Keong wrote to ST Forum complaining about the poor handling of patient information at Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH). His letter was published today (25 Aug). Mr Loke wrote, “My family and I are greatly disappointed by the poor handling of patient information at Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).” Mr Loke’s mother was admitted to TTSH and her condition was terminal. Because of her conditions, the doctors have allowed Mr Loke’s family members the flexibility to visit his mother without any restrictions. This is, understandably, to allow her to see as many of her family members before she passed away.

HOW TO AVOID THAT DEFAMATION SUIT

Blogger Roy Ngerng’s dismissal from Tan Tock Seng Hospital has raised a hue and cry on the Internet, with commentators like Mr Ng E-Jay claiming that this would have a chilling effect on free speech. However, there are many bloggers and politicians critical of the government who have not suffered any public repercussions despite their political views and still remain gainfully employed. Three lessons can be drawn from their experiences. If accused of defamation, playing things smart is the way to go. The government may be accused of strong-arm tactics for its propensity towards defamation suits, yet it was comparatively lenient towards individuals who have made amends, such as blogger Alex Au or Temasek Review Emeritus editor Richard Wan. After they made public apologies and retracted defamatory articles, the government chose to let the matter rest.

ROY NGERNG VS TAN TOCK SENG HOSPITAL: THE NEWS CYCLE SPINS ON

This breeds the question – what type of situations or offences justify dismissal? Anton Casey made distasteful comments, but he didn’t break the law. What about people who earn parking tickets (that’s breaking the law!)? Who have extra-marital affairs? Who abuse their maids? Some offences are more easily forgiven than others. What should be the determining criteria? At the end of the day, it may not be a bad thing for Roy Ngerng. As an activist, he gets another round of welcomed publicity. His dismissal will likely further tilt public opinion and sympathy to his cause. And I don’t think being a ‘patient coordinator’ is something he will miss.
