  1. In the midst of all the negative news, this is one piece of beautiful news... literally https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/covid-19-singapore-airlines-care-ambassadors-hospital-manpower-12608118 Oh my... Can you imagine... If I'm an inpatient and I'm expecting the rubbish food given to me, and along comes the Singapore Girl, and says: "Hello!" Today, we offer these uncooked toufu and eggs or the overfried chicken, served with plain water... Suddenly everything will taste better! Wooo... Or get them to teach you to wear a mask ... like putting on the life vest 🙂 Or better yet, teach HCW to wear the PPE... A patient's quarantine pr NCID stay just got sweeter... hmm.... 😉 Their roles can be extended.. As for social distancing... I can imagine even those old chaps at the hawker centre will obey them when they ask them too The only side effect? Well they might move further from others, but they might have trouble maintaining social distance from these lovely ladies... Brilliant idea...
  2. Man taken to hospital for burns after power bank explodes in his pocket at Bedok hawker centre A man was taken to hospital on Friday evening (Jan 11) after suffering burns from a power bank, which had exploded in his pocket. The middle-aged man at Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre burnt his palm when he reached into his pocket to remove the device, reported Chinese-language daily Lianhe Wanbao. The Singapore Civil Defence Force said it responded to a call at about 6.40pm at Block 209 New Upper Changi Road. The man, who is in his 40s, was taken to Changi General Hospital. Ms Wendy Hong, 60, told The Straits Times that she was having her dinner when she heard a commotion, with several diners standing up, surrounding the injured man. "There was a thick, grey smoke, and I could also smell a very strong stench of burning chemicals," said the part-timer who works in the clothing industry. Passers-by helped to put ice on his hand, wrapping it up with plastic food wrap. "His face was screwed up - it was clear he was in a lot of pain," she added, noting that the ambulance arrived shortly. Photos given to Lianhe Wanbao show the badly burnt and melted remains of the power bank on the hawker centre floor, as well as a large frayed hole in the man's back pocket. Duck rice stall assistant Huang Jia Qiang told Lianhe Wanbao that he heard a small explosion, in addition to the smell of something burning. He said that the man had been using his phone while eating, with the phone connected to the power bank in his pocket at the same time.

  5. A woman in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) who was seriously injured in a car crash in 1991 has finally woken up from a 27-year-long coma. Munira Abdulla, then 32, had just picked up her 4-year-old son Omar from school when the car they were in collided with a school bus, reported local daily the National on Monday (Apr 22). While Omar was unharmed, Ms Abdulla, who had tried to protect her son from the impact, was left unconscious with a serious brain injury. Last year, Ms Abdulla, now 60, regained consciousness in a hospital room in Germany. “I never gave up on her because I always had a feeling that one day she will wake up,” said her 32-year-old son Omar Webair in an interview with the National. Ms Abdulla, who was taken to a local hospital after the accident, was later transferred to one in London where doctors diagnosed her to be in a minimally conscious state. She was then returned to the UAE where she was transferred several times due to insurance constraints. In 2017, Ms Abdulla was finally taken to a German hospital after the Crown Prince Court heard the family's story and gave them a grant. There, Ms Abdulla underwent surgery to treat her weakened limb muscles as well as physical therapy. Last June, Ms Abdulla was seen stirring in her bed when an argument broke out in her hospital room. “She was making strange sounds and I kept calling the doctors to examine her,” Mr Webair told the National. “They said everything was normal. “Then, three days later, I woke up to the sound of someone calling my name. “It was her. She was calling my name. I was flying with joy. For years I have dreamt of this moment, and my name was the first word she said.” Ms Abdulla is now receiving treatment in Abu Dhabi, where she is able to communicate “in a very reasonable manner”, said the hospital. “I shared her story to tell people not to lose hope on their loved ones,” Mr Webair said. “Don’t consider them dead when they are in such a state. “All those years, the doctors told me she was a hopeless case and that there was no point of the treatment I was seeking for her, but whenever in doubt I put myself in her place and did whatever I could to improve her condition.” Read more at https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/uae-woman-wakes-up-from-27-year-coma-after-car-crash-report-11472950 Miracle story to kick start this morning. In Singapore, this may not even be remotely possible no thanks to expensive healthcare bills. How comprehensive or rather how limited is our life insurance for coma patients? How many of us can afford to keep our loved ones alive for so long, with or without hopes of them even waking up? Then there are other deciding factors... What are the moral implications to deciding when to pull the plug for a coma patient whom is showing minimal signs of consciousness, on life support etc? Who is going to decide quality of life vs quantity of life? When is the right time to pull the plug? Is there ever a right time? Do insurance companies put pressure on hospitals or even doctors? This is a miracle case. It has given hope to families out there to keep the faith and not give up on their loved ones. But food for thought, how many of us would have been able to do the same? At 60 years old, she still has many good years to catch up on lost time with her family.
  6. Seremban Boy Keeps Losing in Video Game So His Dad Broke His Competitor’s Spine On January 11, a misunderstanding over a video game ended with a teenage gamer being hospitalised with broken bones. The incident happened at around 10pm at an electronic game store in Palm Mall, Seremban. Sin Chew Daily reported that the teenage victim had been playing a competitive video game against another boy. After beating the boy several times, the boy’s father approached the victim and offered him RM2 to intentionally lose and let the boy win. However, the bribe didn’t work and the teenager soon seized another victory, beating the boy once more. The father was angered and became violent, throwing a chair at the victim. He kicked the teenager several times, rallying up around four other men to come and assist the assault. A video of the event posted on Twitter showed them surrounding the visibly terrified teenager, yelling at him as passersby watched helplessly. At one point in time, a man even kicked the teenager in the head as he cowered on the floor. The assault was brutal, and the boy ended up being hospitalised as he suffered severe injuries. With bruises across his body, punctured lungs, broken ribs, and a shattered spine, the victim is currently in the ICU of Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital. Source: Sin Chew Daily Four suspects have since been arrested, as reported by The Sun. All four suspects have been in remand until today (15 Jan), said Seremban district police chief Asst Comm Thiew Hock Poh. Their case is currently being investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for rioting. Source: Sin Chew Daily The police are currently searching for the whereabouts of a witness, S. Munisvaran, 37, to assist in the investigation. They have advised members of the public with information on the witness and the incident to call the investigating officer, Mohammad Najeeb Mohammed Shukri at 06-6033284. What a terrible tragedy! And over such a minor issue. Violence is never the answer and we wish the victim a complete recovery.

    Final hospital Bill: $1k

After the subsides, Medisave, and more important enhanced Medishield, payable out of pocket is $1049.8 Moral of story here is: 1. Healthcare can be affordable if you plan 2. Cover yourself appropriately and sufficiently accordingly. Premiums payable by Medisave. Could have been cheaper if i had riders 3. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail So, the resources are there...use it instead of kpkb here... Final word, ur funeral will be more ex....save for that cos 3M cannot use [laugh]
  8. Hi all Not exactly lite n easy. my MIL hospitalized in SGH. Have been doing this test that test but always give non-conclusive statement and only when we asked. Any avenue for broadcasting such issue of healthcare facility? Can't imagine the bills after staying for nearly 2 weeks and those tests. On a side note, I think in pursuit of shaping good economy, govt related bodies / subsidiaries have become very lax in their work. Examples - can peasant pursue justice without going thru great lengths like engaging lawyer, media etc? Can peasant wait for proactive medical update of patient status in black n white rather than going to private hospital.? In both cases peasant have no money and avenue. How can we change the society? Other than chasing material want and more money, what else is missing?
  9. Hmm.... I am trying to understand why the victim was not sent to the hospital in Sengkang which is only minutes away. E-scooter woman rider taken to hospital after being hit by a lorry in Sengkang SINGAPORE - A 34-year-old e-scooter rider was taken to hospital after she was hit by a lorry in Sengkang on Monday (Aug 27). Police said they were alerted to an accident involving a lorry and an e-scooter at 9.47am at the junction of Sengkang East Road and Sengkang Square. According to Chinese daily Lianhe Wanbao, the woman was on her way back from buying groceries at the market. She had stopped her e-scooter at a traffic junction and was waiting to cross the road when she was hit by the lorry. An eyewitness told Wanbao that the woman's arms and legs were bleeding and she was unable to move. He added that the driver of the lorry got out of his vehicle immediately after the accident and tended to the woman. The driver appeared unharmed. The woman was conscious when she was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. The Straits Times understands that her injuries were not severe. Police investigations are ongoing.

    Hospital blunders!

    Source from http://news.xin.msn.com/zh/singapore/artic...umentid=4436687 IVF strict screening procedures to avoid error A Caucasian man and his Chinese wife , through IVF birth to a child, but found that the child's skin color and their different. DNA tests also showed that the child's DNA does not match with the Caucasian father. This means that hospitals may be used during the other man's sperm and egg to combine. The couple had asked Thomson Medical Hospital to give them accountable, and has sought legal advice to the lawyers. Solicitor, said acceptance of the station asked the couple by the trauma, pain shock. They are also most concerned about the health and welfare of children, do not know whether he has a genetic disease. The couple now want to know the truth, how could this mistake happen, when, who should be responsible? Thomson Medical Hospital , said the desk for the time being no comment. According to the station learned that the Ministry of Health requires all hospitals, during in vitro fertilization, to ensure that gametes from the right parents. However, concrete steps to develop the individual hospitals. Provided in the local hospital, another in vitro fertilization fertility specialist Raffles Medical Center said that by labeling and strict inspection procedures to ensure that errors do not occur.

The hospital's regular process to embryo implantation in the uterus back to the patient before the patient through the screens to watch the preparation process of the embryo, and to check the above name is not his own, which makes the patient more at ease
  11. Post here for more awareness. Saw this durian coffee being mentioned around, best is not try it if you come across it. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/durian-coffee-mix-malaysia-penang-hospital-9912342
  12. As if the infrastructure of the MRT is not sufficient, our Hospital infrastructure is also painfully inadequate Let me cite an example. If you have a family emergency in the west, the nearest hospital is Ng Teng Fong Hospital. While that is true, it then gets complicated. It is broken down into specialities. So while its true you got to the hospital in the nick of time, you again need to be transferred to another hospital. So driving as fast as possible to the hospital is one thing. Getting the right skill and attended to is another. Now comes the complexity. After being treated, the patient will be moved to yet another hospital at A&E to transfer to the right specialist with the right kungfu. Still not an issue. Issue here is transferring to the hospital is another 25 mins. Then at the same sibling cluster like NUH, the specialist will again attend to the patient. Another half an hour. Still not an issue. The real issue here is the Specialist need to book the operating theatre which is shared by other equally important cases to be treated. So while the patient may have arrived in time. The facilities is really CMI Minimum waiting time to have an available operating theatre depends on the A&E load and the schedule at that time. So my best guess is 2 to 3 hours max from the time the doc says ok, I know what to do? Not necessary. From the near estimate, it can range from anything up to 6 to 8 hours. I was just thinking to myself. Yes, now is require surgery already so long. WHAT IF its a brain haemorrhage or worst, life-critical condition or when face with the golden hour of fixing things up because as the hr pass, the chances of full recovery slips.? Obviously, hospital care is like buying a refrigerator or washing machine. You not too bothered about the price. You probably worried the time it is available or the efficiency when you need it. But, this is really an appalling state that we are struggling with and need to be quickly sorted out. I would say, forget about the 6.5 million population. Settle the immediate need first to cater for the 4 million population before the floodgate is open.
  13. Hi All Which is the cheapest private hospital in singapore? Rafffles Hospital? Gleneages (i doubt it)? Mount E? Thomson Medical? Need to see a urologist. Cheers.
  14. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/man-admits-to-abusing-girlfriend-s-one-year-old-child/3095678.html?cid=fbcna SINGAPORE: A 25-year-old man was found guilty on Friday (Sep 2) of three counts of child abuse and one count of causing grievous hurt to his girlfriend’s one-year-old son. Franklie Tan Guang Wei abused the boy over five months, from November 2014 until March 2015, when the semi-conscious baby was rushed to hospital after Tan pushed him off the bed. The boy had sustained a skull fracture and bleeding in the brain. Now three, he is still in hospital undergoing therapy, including speech therapy and physiotherapy. The toddler, now in foster care, and his mother cannot be named due to a gag order. MOTHER LIED TO HIDE ABUSE A District Court heard Tan got together with the boy’s mother, 25, in August 2014. A month later, the baby’s caregivers noticed “a marked change” in his behavior. He had become fearful of males and had nightmares, Assistant Public Prosecutor Dillon Kok said. Caregivers Pe Bee Lian, 51, and her daughter Cadence Gee Shi Ting, 26, also began to notice bruises on the boy’s body whenever he spent time with his mother and Tan. When confronted, his mother denied he had been abused and blamed “spirits” for the bruises. Soon after discovering she was pregnant by Tan, the mother took the boy to live with Tan and his mother in their Bukit Batok flat on Nov 7, 2014. The next day, Tan abused the child for the first time. Frustrated by the baby’s cries, he slapped him, leaving marks on his cheek and a bruise near his left ear. When the boy’s mother returned him to caregivers Mdm Pe and Ms Gee a few days later, she lied that the baby’s face was swollen because he had fallen off the bed. The women took the boy to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH) on November 19. Though his injuries had healed by then, the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) were alerted to allegations that the baby might have been abused. BABY WAS THROWN ACROSS THE ROOM The baby was discharged on November 27 into the care of Mdm Pe, and his mother’s access to him was restricted – she was allowed weekly supervised visits at MSF. This was revoked in January 2015, when the baby was found with scratches on his thighs after his mother and Tan had spent time with him, APP Kok said. About a month later, the mother entered into a Voluntary Care Agreement (VCA) with Tan’s parents, giving them care of her child and supervised access for her and Tan. However, Tan’s father breached the VCA by leaving the baby alone with his mother and Tan on March 8, 2015. The same day, frustrated by the boy’s cries, Tan lifted the baby up roughly and threw him 2 metres across the room. A week later, when Tan’s parents claimed they could not fully care for the boy, the VCA was amended to allow his mother and Tan to bring himto their flat at night. However, Tan was not allowed unsupervised contact with the baby at all times. BABY WAS “FORCEFULLY PUSHED” OFF THE BED On Mar 25, Tan abused the boy again – the worst instance of abuse which would later land the baby in hospital. The boy’s mother woke up early that day to get ready for work, leaving Tan alone with the child. When the baby began to cry, Tan pounded him twice on his buttock, APP Kok told the court. An hour later, after he had been fed, the boy began to vomit. Despite this, his mother left for work and left Tan to look after the sick child. This was in breach of the new VCA, which expressly forbade Tan unsupervised contact with the baby. When the baby continued to vomit, Tan became frustrated and “forcefully pushed” him off the bed, APP Kok told the court. Tan said the boy “flew off the bed and landed face up about 2 metres away”. He picked the child up and took him to have a shower. Soon after, he realised the baby was “in a daze and appeared to be semi-conscious”. Tan called the boy’s mother, who returned home to find her child weak and pale. The couple rushed him to KKH. The baby was found to have suffered a skull fracture, and underwent emergency surgery to ease the swelling in his brain. Further examination revealed a host of other injuries, including wrist and collarbone fractures and bruises on the body, including on his eyelids. The baby had also suffered a superficial burn on his back. In court on Friday, Tan admitted he had not checked the temperature of the baby’s bathwater when he gave him a shower on March 25. MOTHER ACCUSED OF ALLOWING ABUSE The boy’s mother has also been charged for child abuse, for allowing her child to stay with Tan, knowing her boyfriend abused her baby. Her trial is scheduled for later this month. A psychiatric report for Tan is pending. He is expected to be sentenced on Sep 19. For child abuse, Tan faces up to four years’ jail and/or a fine of up to S$4,000 per charge. For causing grievous hurt, he could be jailed for up to 10 years and fined or caned. - CNA/nc This evil man deserved a maximum punishment. The way he abused the baby is worst than animal. He should be punished severely , Slap him with max years of imprisonment and give him maximum strokes of rotan. The abuse took place in 2014, and the child still in hospital undergoing therapy, including speech therapy and physiotherapy. The mother is no better for allowing the continuous abuse to be inflicted on a defenceless child. She is the cause of the harm. She knew and lied to cover her lover wrong doing . She is not fit to be a mother.

    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.

  20. SINGAPORE: One of the perimeter walls of a 127-year-old obsolete lunatic asylum has been discovered in the compound of the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), at the side of a hill near Macalister Road. The National Heritage Board (NHB) said on Monday (Nov 17) that it was alerted to the discovery of the New Lunatic Asylum by Mr Charles Goh - co-founder of the Asian Paranormal Investigators - in September. The New Lunatic Asylum was built in 1887 and had 300 beds for 250 male patients and 50 female patients. Singapore's third psychiatric hospital was constructed on cottage principles comprising a series of detached buildings, and offered both accommodation as well as work facilities. The NHB leveraged on Google Glass technology to document the remaining wall of the New Lunatic Asylum. The public can watch the documentary from Tuesday on NHB’s YouTube channel. The NHB said it will be working closely with SGH to assess the condition of the remaining perimeter wall and jointly explore potential preservation and commemorative efforts to showcase the heritage of the site. -TODAY/kk http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/discovered-in-sgh/1477254.html first we discovered old reservoir and now we discovered an old hospital!!

  22. As most of you might have heard, Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has left the French hospital where he had been receiving treatment after being involved in a skiing accident last year. “Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore,” said a statement from spokeswoman Sabina Kehm. The former Formula One world champion has now been admitted to the University Hospital of Lausanne in western Switzerland. “He is here, he arrived this morning,” Darcy Christen, spokesman for the hospital said. Mr Christen declined to say what unit Schumacher, who lives with his family in a town between Lausanne and Geneva, he was being treated in, citing medical secrecy and family privacy. The former Formula One world champion was placed in an induced coma after undergoing two separate operations to remove blood clots from his brain following the accident on December 29th. The German, who won a record 91 Grand Prix victories and left motor racing last year after a disappointing three-year comeback, hit his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps resort of Meribel. “For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye,” the brief statement said of Schumacher, who turned 45 earlier this year. Schumacher initially required surgery to remove a haematoma from his brain, but despite its success, he was kept in a coma under sedation. Official reports after the initial frenzy surrounding Schumacher’s status have been few and far between, prompting a number of scare stories regarding his future. Prior to today the last update on Schumacher’s condition had been in early April, when a statement was released saying Schumacher was showing “moments of consciousness”. The time in between without any further statement, however, had again raised questions as to whether Schumacher would ever make a complete recovery. Those doubts will continue to remain, with no other information provided with regards to his health. Schumacher’s family, however, have again offered their sincere gratitude to all those who have played a part in the process over the past five and a half months. The statement added: “His family would like to explicitly thank all his treating doctors, nurses and therapists in Grenoble, as well as the first aiders at the place of the accident, who did an excellent job in those first months. “The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes. We are sure it helped him. Agencies
