    Home visit doctor

    Been meaning to post this for over a month, even though it might only interest some. Home visit doctors can be quite expensive but my missus found this group to come and check on her mother who at the time was not well and it's difficult to get her to the Polyclinic which has a long wait in cold aircon. Anyway https://www.rescu.sg/a-b-o-u-t came along to look at my mil. They stayed about one hour did quite a few tests and took my mil medical history. The whole team of three came along and they were very caring to my mil. They suggested after some tests etc that my mil be sent to A & E because of low Blood oxygen and the possibility of a chest infection. They even wrote a letter for the A & E doctor explaining their tests results etc.. My mil was admitted and the doctors at the hospital confirmed it was the correct thing to bring my mil to A & E. Their one hour visit was billed at S$ 68. I've no relationship to this team in any way but I wholeheartedly recommend them. They were great.
  9. I am thinking with all these legislations, medical displinary councils, and all the money spent, won’t it be more efficient to create a body to track the outcomes of the patients of various Doctors? It is a step towards a value based healthcare where pay is linked directly to patient outcome but that is hard to do. One of the problems is that patients does not know who are the good Doctors. The government can set up an independent body to survey patients and track outcomes. Apply a consistent metric and make the information publicly available. It’s like word of mouth but regulated and much more reliable. It is also safer for Doctors as your practise is unlikely to be destroyed by one bad patient assuming u have lots of glowing reviews from other patients. Of course u have to start thinking about whether your patient will be happy after the treatment as now there is a stronger impact...
  10. Verdick is out Doctor gets 10 years’ jail for sexually assaulting patient in Bedok clinic Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/doctor-sexually-assaulted-patient-wee-teong-boo-jailed-11294522 SINGAPORE: A doctor convicted of sexually assaulting his patient was on Wednesday (Feb 27) sentenced to 10 years' jail. He was also ordered to pay the victim S$1,200 in compensation for the counselling fees she incurred to deal with the psychological and emotional effects from the assault, which took place in 2015 in his Bedok clinic. Wee Teong Boo, 68, was found guilty on Monday of one charge of outrage of modesty and another charge of sexual assault by digital penetration. He was acquitted of the original rape charge. Deputy Public Prosecutor Sharmila Sripathy-Shanaz on Wednesday asked for a sentence of 12 years and seven months’ jail. Of this, three months was in lieu of seven strokes of the cane, as Wee is above the age of 50 and cannot be caned. She said “medicine has long been regarded as the most noble of professions”, but Wee’s “senseless actions” violated its ethics and code, “forever shattering” the victim’s life. “Forty-two years after entering a profession committed to the primacy of patient welfare, Wee Teong Boo stands before this court, convicted of sexual assaulting and molesting a young female patient during two medical examinations - his senseless actions violating the very ethical mores that every doctor swears to uphold,” said the prosecutor. Advertisement Wee has indicated his intent to appeal against the conviction and sentence. GIVING TESTIMONY WAS LIKE BEING RAPED AGAIN: VICTIM The prosecutor reminded the judge of the victim’s testimony during the trial, which the victim had likened to being “raped again”. The woman, aged 23 when the assault took place, had told the court that after the incident, she “was living like a walking dead, walking as per normal, but I was just dead inside”. She also wondered why it happened to her, “out of so many patients”. “What are the odds of being raped when you visit a medical professional in Singapore, in such a safe country? I cannot register why I am the one, I just can’t understand why it happened to me,” the prosecutor recalled the victim saying. The incident affected her classes and "destroyed her trust in male doctors". The victim later requested only for female doctors whenever she visited a polyclinic. She also had trouble with her male friends, unable to accept any intimacy. Wee was acquitted of the rape charge as the judge said he was satisfied that there was reasonable doubt as to whether penile penetration could have taken place. On Wednesday, the prosecutor said Wee had been "utterly disgraceful" in court, in particular retorting during cross-examination: "I do not consider her (the patient) a victim." "This barbed taunt smacks of arrogance and pure defiance and ... lack of remorse," said the prosecutor. She also said that Wee maligned the integrity and character of independent witnesses during the trial, claiming that a doctor on the stand was not giving objective evidence and instead was embellishing it to suit the prosecution's case. He also maligned police officers, calling them "stupid" and "blatantly lying about ill treatment while in custody", said the prosecution. Wee’s defence counsel Edmond Pereira said he will not be making submissions on sentence as his client is maintaining his innocence. He pointed to Wee's history of medical conditions, including diabetes and hypertension, and pointed out that there was no need for the prosecution to increase an "already lengthy" jail term as Wee will be in his late 70s by the time he is released from prison. He also tried contesting the compensation order relating to the victim's counselling fees, saying there was no evidence in court about the counselling when the victim testified. Wee is out on bail pending his appeal. Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/doctor-sexually-assaulted-patient-wee-teong-boo-jailed-11294522

    A touching reunion

    This is really touching and heartwarming too. Nice story https://www.straitstimes.com/world/united-states/us-nurse-discovers-doctor-colleague-was-premature-baby-she-cared-for-28-years?utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&xtor=CS1-10#Echobox=1536114516 US nurse discovers doctor colleague was premature baby she cared for 28 years ago Ms Vilma Wong, a nurse at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, recently crossed paths with Dr Brandon Seminatore, a medical resident at the hospital who's training to be a child neurologist.PHOTO: FACEBOOK / STANDFORD CHILDREN HEALTH PUBLISHED2 HOURS AGO FACEBOOKTWITTEREMAIL PHILIPPINE DAILY INQUIRER/ASIA NEWS NETWORK - It seemed a stroke of fate when one nurse from Palo Alto, California got to reunite with one of the premature babies she cared for 28 years ago in the very same hospital where it all started. Ms Vilma Wong, a nurse at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, recently crossed paths with Dr Brandon Seminatore, a medical resident at the hospital who's training to be a child neurologist. Twenty years ago, when Dr Seminatore was born, he weighed only 1kg. As reported by The East Bay Times on Monday (Sept 3), Dr Seminatore spent more than 40 days in the neonatal intensive care unit (Nicu) with a breathing tube, where he was cared for by Ms Wong. The encounter between the two was shared on Facebook on Aug 16 by the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. In the post, the page shared a photo of a young Ms Wong cradling the infant Dr Seminatore on her lap. In another photo, Ms Wong and Dr Seminatore can be seen posing next to each other inside the hospital, both wearing their scrubs. "A chance encounter at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford has led to a heart warming reunion between nurse and patient," the page stated. "Brandon, one of our pediatric residents, was born 28 years ago in our Nicu - then just 29 weeks old. Vilma was his primary care nurse." Almost 30 years have passed since that fateful moment, but Ms Wong was far from forgetting the little baby she cared for. As per report, all medical residents were required to check in at the nurse's station before examining the premature babies in the Nicu. It was here when Ms Wong spotted Dr Seminatore and asked him who he was. "His last name sounded very familiar," Ms Wong was quoted as saying. "I kept asking where he was from and he told me that he was from San Jose, California, and that, as a matter of fact, he was a premature baby born at our hospital. I then got very suspicious because I remember being the primary nurse to a baby with the same last name.'' Dr Seminatore, however, looks far removed from the tiny premature infant that once had been under Ms Wong's care. Today, he stands at 1.72m tall and weighs 61kg, although he still bears the same eyes and expression. For him, meeting Ms Wong was a "surreal experience". Dr Seminatore said: "She cares deeply for her patients, to the point that she was able to remember a patient's name almost three decades later.'' As for Ms Wong? She considers meeting Dr Seminatore for the second time the pay-off of her mission. She said in the report: "As a nurse, it's kind of like your reward." the baby looks exactly like him today..hair and all hahaha
  12. Wishing and gentle reminders to all MCF members to take good care of your own health. I wish all good health and safety!" Health is WEALTH! A 43-year-old female doctor from Shanxi province in China collapsed and died after reportedly working for 18 hours without rest. Zhao, who was deputy director of the respiratory medicine department, died from subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke brought on by a ruptured aneurysm, Zhao had been working since 6pm the night before on Dec 28. After completing her shift at 12pm the next day, she continued to visit patients in the hospital, clocking up to 18 hours that day. Zhao had told another colleague a few weeks ago that she was "too busy" to take a break. http://www.asiaone.com/china/doctor-china-dies-suspected-overwork-after-18-hour-shift?xtor=EREC-16-4[Emarsys_Newsletter]-20180102&extid=6934d0cfb7b252f1ae9f0dbddf5ff88ca8637e77
  13. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1191578/1/.html SINGAPORE: A doctor with Changi General Hospital pleaded guilty on Tuesday to dressing up as a junior college schoolgirl and exposing himself to a university student. Thirty-seven-year-old Ivan Ngeow Ko Yen was first charged in August 2010 with insulting the modesty of the then-19-year-old student. He was loitering at a lift lobby in Clementi while donning a school uniform, comprising a top and a skirt. The girl noticed him at her block's void deck, but ignored him. However, she caught him lifting his skirt in her direction and exposing himself, as the lift doors were closing. A report was made later and Ngeow was arrested the following month. Ngeow, who is out on S$10,000 bail, will be sentenced on 24 April. A pre-sentence report has been ordered to assess his suitability for probation. For the offence, he could be jailed up to one year and fined. - CNA/wk
  14. Susan Lim sells home at Sentosa Cove for $39mil 2 March 2012 Straits Times EMBATTLED surgeon Susan Lim has sold her sea-facing bungalow in Sentosa Cove for $39 million, a record absolute price for the upmarket enclave. It is believed the home - a plush residence said to have five bedrooms and an entertainment room - was bought by an Indian national from the energy sector. A few months ago, his purchase would have attracted the standard 3 per cent stamp duty, but the measures that came in on Dec 8 imposed an additional 10 per cent duty on foreign home buyers. So the buyer will now have to stump up about $5 million in levies for the privilege of buying Dr Lim's home. Sentosa Cove is the only place where non-permanent resident foreigners can buy landed homes, although transactions still need government approval. Dr Lim's 15,929 sq ft estate in Cove Drive - likely two adjoining plots that had been merged - was priced at $2,448 per sq ft (psf). That is well above auction prices achieved for 12 vacant Sentosa Cove bungalow plots in the southern precinct where Cove Drive is located. Each plot went for between $656 and $1,039 psf in August 2006, or between $5.56 million and $8.15 million each. They do not include the construction costs. But even taking into account these costs, Dr Lim most likely has made a handsome profit from the sale. The Lim sale smashes the old record of $36 million - or $2,403 psf - paid for a 14,983 sq ft bungalow on Paradise Island in the northern part of Sentosa Cove. Mr Shen Bin, a Chinese national and Singapore permanent resident, is believed to have bought the property in May 2010. Mr Shen is said to be the son of billionaire entrepreneur Shen Wenrong, chairman of China-based steel manufacturer Shagang Group. The island experienced tepid sales volumes last year, so this latest mega-deal could revive the sector. Only 79 caveats - 24 for landed and 55 for non-landed homes - with a total value of $737.6 million were lodged with the Urban Redevelopment Authority last year. And there were only 12 new home sales last year, forcing some developers to look towards renting out completed but unsold projects. The lacklustre 2011 followed a better year when 203 caveats - 62 landed and 141 non-landed homes - with a value of $1.7 billion were lodged. With 75 caveats lodged, 2008 was the only year with lower sales volumes than 2011 since caveats started being lodged for Sentosa Cove in 2004. Dr Lim was in the limelight after she took the Singapore Medical Council (SMC), which regulates the medical profession, to court. She had wanted to block an inquiry by a second medical disciplinary committee to look into complaints of overcharging. There were allegations that she charged a member of the Brunei royal family $24.8 million for seven months of treatment and made false representations in invoices rendered to her. The patient died of cancer in 2007. Dr Lim later gave a 50 per cent discount. After losing her case in both the High Court and the Court of Appeal, she has to bear the cost of her own legal fees as well as those of the SMC. In such civil suits the losing party has to pay a part of the winning party's legal charges. This is in addition to the fees Dr Lim has to pay her own lawyers. She will also have to pay costs for both hearings.

    Would you trust this doctor?

    http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/judge-yangon-doctors-papers-may-not-be-fake IT professionals with fake MBA is one thing but doctors with questionable qualifications is quite another. lucky that SMA did their due dilligence. just quick question to the doctors here. would you question a doctor's competence if he's not registered with the medical council? would any of you still dare go to him, even if he has a degree? i find it quite scary. my view is, if in doubt, any doubt at all, no matter how small, they should not be allowed to practice here. what do you guys think?
  16. Many doctors and medical professionals here. Any thoughts? This seems to be a hot topic recently. Recently, I went through a procedure and was darn pissed with how much I had to fork out from my own pocket and according to my doctor, my company's appointed TPA is to be blamed. True?

    Medical appointment

    Hi, need some advice here. My father in law saw a doctor at TTSH recently and doctor suspected he has a tumour. Doc arranged for a biopsy in Sep. My wife didn't accompany him to the doc so she doesn't know what exactly the doctor said. She called the hospital but they said they can't reveal patient's info. So now my wife wants to know how serious this is and isn't comfortable waiting for another 2 months for a biopsy. What options does she have? How can she get more information from the TTSH doc? If go to private, will it be very fast to do a biopsy? What private clinics can she go? Mount E or Raffles medical all seem very expensive.

    Doctor Saved 3 Yr Old Boy in Flight

    Two-year old boy diverts international plane! A plane with 315 passengers on board had to do an emergency landing on its way from Amsterdam to Singapore on 3 Jan 2016.(GMT) because of a 2.5 yr old boy. My wife and I were on board KLM Flight KL835 which departed from Amsterdam to Singapore at about 10 pm on 3 Jan 2016 (GMT). We just took off at 8.50 pm (GMT) and we were barely 1.5 hr into our 12 hr flight back home when the drama unfolded. I was taking something from my bag in the overhead luggage compartment to prepare for some much needed sleep when I heard a faint voice asking if there was a doctor around. A few seats behind us, I saw an anxious mother carrying an unconscious little boy, about two and a half years old. This was like déjà vu. Am I dreaming? Mental pictures of the dramatic resuscitation of the little boy who almost drowned in Temasek Club on 8 November 2015 flashed in my mind. Mouth to mouth resuscitation? Not again! I quickly went over and told her I am a doctor. The little boy appeared limp in his mother's arms. Quickly, I took the child and laid him on his side on an open space next to the emergency exit. "What happened to him?" I asked as I bent down to hear and feel if there was any breathing. "I don't know. Suddenly, he is not responding," she answered weakly. She looked terribly worried. I checked his vital signs and they were still strong. Thank God, the boy was just unconscious. No need for mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Phew! The efficient KLM crew brought the Resus Kit and we quickly administered oxygen on him. He felt warm to the touch and a reading revealed he had a high temperature of 38.6 degree Celsius. I knew I had to cool him down quickly but his thick layers of clothes weren't cooperating. " Do you mind if I cut away his shirt?" I asked. "Yes, yes, please do whatever it takes, " his mother pleaded. But what was I thinking? I realized there may not be any scissors on board. I tried again and finally managed to take off his thick clothing. The crew brought the ice cubes I requested. I proceeded to give him a tepid sponge to bring down his fever. His temperature came down after 30 min of sponging and he started to cry. A good sign. . The child probably became unconscious after throwing a febrile fit during the flight. I found a pulse oximeter in the Resus kit. It worked on my finger but it was too big for the little child. By this time, an elderly male Caucasian doctor (looking very smart in his suit) and a young Asian doctor arrived on the scene to offer assistance. The lady doctor said she is an ICU specialist. The elderly male doctor said he an Internist. I struggled to hear him with all the commotion going on. The lady doctor asked if I was a doctor and about my area of expertise. I told her I am a family doctor, a general practitioner in Singapore. "Oh, then you are the best person to handle this kind of case"' she told all the anxious onlookers. Both of them discussed the boy's condition between themselves while I continued to sponge the boy with cold wet wipes placed all over his chest, neck and forehead. The two doctors concurred that given the long flight ahead, it was best to evacuate the boy at the nearest airport. By now, the boy's temperature had subsided. He started fussing, irritated by the cold wet wipes. "Okay, mummy, you can have your son back ... but please continue to sponge him." I told his mother who looked visibly relieved at this time. The captain explained the situation and told everyone he needed to make an unscheduled landing at Bucharest airport because of the boy's condition. The plane took another 30-40 minutes to dump fuel and we finally made an emergency landing at Bucharest airport in Romania for the boy to be evacuated to the hospital. It took another 4 hours for the plane to refuel while the 315 passengers waited patiently despite the obvious inconvenience caused. Most were hungry, tired and worn but no one made a disapproving sound. 65,000 liters of fuel dumped for emergency landing. Four hours of waiting by 315 passengers. Many passengers must have missed their connecting flights. That is how much it costs if someone falls sick at the most untimely moment in the air. But what is more important than the safety and wellbeing of the little boy? The Captain kept everyone updated regularly and thankedeveryone for their patience and understanding. I must compliment him and his crew for their professionalism and KLM for putting the safety and well being of the passengers as their priority. My wife and I chased the northern light from Iceland to Tromso in Norway. What can be more exciting than catching of the elusive "green lady"? But life loves to surprise us. This 12-hour direct flight became a 17-hour medical adventure in the sky. An adventure that may have given the green lady a run for her money. We were all tired when we landed in Singapore at 7.45pm (GMT +8) but KLM crew and the captain deserved a thumb up. I wrote a few lines of feedback to show my appreciation to the passengers , the captain and especially the male crew member William during the prolonged flight. Well done KLM. Thank you to the rest of the passengers. And let's pray for the boy's speedy recovery. http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/saving-lives-on-land-and-in-the-air https://www.facebook.com/DrLowLeeYong/posts/909127299122651 http://www.tnp.sg/news/singapore-news/boy-3-almost-drowns-doc-saves-him-turning-him-upside-down http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/3-year-old-boy-nearly-drowns-in-pool-but-was-revived-after-doctors-perform#xtor=CS1-10 https://www.facebook.com/TheStraitsTimes/posts/10153205478852115 This doctor saved a drowning boy last year and now he saved this boy in flight.

    SG Doctor

    Post this to understand more . . . hope it has not been posted yet. Doctor's captions on YouTube videos of spat spark harassment case http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/courts-crime/story/doctors-captions-youtube-videos-spat-spark-harassment-case-2015011 What began as a petrol station spat between two men has escalated into an anti-harassment case involving YouTube videos. A district court yesterday ordered Dr K. Paramesvaran, who is better known as Dr Param, to remove the captions he had put into two videos that he uploaded detailing his run-in with Frenchman Yannick Pierre Yves Le Borgne at a Caltex station last April. The order is an interim one until the case is settled in court. This is believed to be the first time thaoot a court has issued an expedited protection order (EPO) under the Protection from Harassment Act, landmark legislation passed last year which, among other things, seeks to curb online harassment. Unlike a protection order, an EPO is issued on a temporary basis to prevent further alleged harassment until a case is settled. The court has also ordered that the captions cannot be printed by any other parties. The videos seem to have been taken from closed-circuit television footage at a petrol station in the Holland Road area. In one 6.5-minute video, Dr Param, managing director of Medical Imaging, which runs a chain of radiological clinics, is seen paying at the petrol kiosk's counter. A Caucasian man then approaches the doctor from behind, and starts talking to him. He points his finger several times, and is also seen patting Dr Param on the shoulder. In another three-minute video, the 36-year-old Frenchman is seen stopping his car alongside that of Dr Param's as he is pumping air into his tyres. He steps out of the car and again gesticulates towards Dr Param and engages him in some kind of argument. It is unclear what started the spat but the entire episode seems to have left Dr Param aggrieved. He lodged a Magistrate's Complaint shortly after the incident and the case was probed by the police as a case of intentional harassment. But last November, police informed him that after considering the facts and circumstances of the case and with advice from the Attorney-General's Chambers, no further action would be taken against Mr Yannick. Last month, the doctor, who is in his 60s, posted the two videos to air his grievances. Mr Yannick, who is represented by lawyer Choo Zheng Xi, claimed the text and commentary accompanying the videos, which could have gone viral, was a continuing source of harassment to him. He applied to have the text removed. The judge ruled that the videos have to be renamed "Incident at Caltex on 20 April 2014". But Dr Param, who was defended by lawyer Foo Soon Yien, is free to state on the videos that the previous comments had been removed pending a trial. According to the ruling, failure to obey the court's order could result in a contempt of court action or a Protection of Harassment Act offence which carries a fine of up to $5,000 and/or a jail term of up to six months. Responding to queries, a State Courts spokesman said yesterday that since the new Act came into force last Nov 15 till Jan 7 this year, there have been 79 Magistrate's Complaints for harassment. There were also 13 applications for Protection Orders under Originating Summons. Magistrate's Complaints relate to criminal cases while Originating Summons are civil remedies. Three Protection Orders have been issued by the State Courts, and the remainder of the cases are ongoing, she added.
