PACKS OF DENTAL INSTRUMENTS NOT STERILISED COMPLETELY USED ON PATIENTS

In an unprecedented failure by the authorities, it seems that 72 packs of dental instruments not completely sterilised were used in patient treatment last week at the National Dental Centre Singapore (NDCS). The packs were used on patients on 5 and 6 June.

All the packs were used for dental treatment before they could be retrieved, although the risk of infection to patients has been assessed to be "extremely low". NDCS clarified that it was because the earlier steps in the sterilisation process would have removed close to 100 per cent of organisms of concern. However, the lapse was still a notable concern, and NCDS explained that he instruments had undergone thermal washer disinfection but had not completed the final step of steam sterilisation before being used at its specialist outpatient clinics on levels 2, 4 and 6 of the NDCS building.

S'PORE NSMEN ARE TREATED TOO BADLY & TAKEN FOR GRANTED BY MOST PPL

NSFs are treated too badly by public perception. It is an endless cycle. Occasional NSF commit whatever "mistake" like sit on MRT, public outrage, some NSF develop a heck care attitude, more likely to have some shaming incident again. The public takes NSFs for granted. No NSFs want to be there, otherwise they go regular already. They are already disgrunted, but people still heap shit on them because of their connection to army, something they don't even want.

Diabetic patients may find a new friend in maggots, which may save them from amputations. A treatment called Maggot Debridement Therapy uses maggots to speed up the removal of dead tissues while helping to reduce the bacteria within the wound. This helps the wound to heal faster. The treatment is available at many hospitals in Singapore.
