  1. Male nurse molests male patient at Mount E Novena, says victim 'imagined things' under sedatives The victim also testified that his doctor told him such incidents should be kept "on the low". A Singaporean nurse, Ivan Lee Yi Wang, groped a male patient who was recovering from a gastro-colonoscopy. The molestation happened at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital in 2018. The 35-year-old nurse later denied his actions and said the victim had imagined the incident as he was under the influence of sedatives. On Feb. 20, 2024, he was found guilty of two charges of molestation following a trial, according to CNA and The Straits Times. First met at clinic The victim met Lee during his first visit to a clinic at Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre. According to the operator of Mount Elizabeth Novena hospital, Parkway Pantai, Lee had been hired by the clinic independently and was a not a member of the hospital staff. The victim had been suffering from abdominal pain, bloating, and excessive belching for three months. Lee helped to register him at the reception counter. Having obtained the victim's number from a form, Lee later sent him text using his personal number, inquiring about a follow-up appointment. The victim felt that this was strange and did not reply to Lee's text. He called the clinic directly instead to schedule the appointment. Inappropriately touched On Oct. 13, 2018, the victim arrived at the clinic for a gastro-colonoscopy — a procedure that involves the insertion of a tube into the digestive tract. He changed into a hospital gown. Lee also spoke to him before the procedure was performed. Following the procedure, he was taken to a recovery ward. According to CNA, the victim was awakened when he felt his hospital gown being lifted up and a "grip" from what felt like a hand on his genitals. He also caught sight of a flashlight which looked to be from a phone camera. The victim was shocked by what had happened and did not call for help immediately. Lee later returned and molested him a second time. Female nurse found the victim was "quite nervous" later A female nurse who testified for the prosecution said she saw Lee standing in front of the recovery room, and that he was about to open the curtain around the victim's bed. When she asked Lee if he was giving medication to the victim, he said "yes". The nurse then told Lee not to administer more medication. She also advised him not to enter the room as the patient was probably still asleep. When she entered the room later with another nurse, she found the victim to be "quite nervous". He insisted that they "make sure the guy is not standing outside of [his] door". Told to keep it "on the low" During his testimony, the victim added that his doctor later told him, "This sort of issue should keep it on the low." The doctor also said that it was up to the victim if he wished to make a police report, CNA reported. The victim also felt "accused" when another nurse said no incriminating pictures had been found in Lee's phone and that the flashlight he saw could have been from a blood pressure machine. It was all in his head: Defence During his defence, Lee's lawyers — Peter Low, Christine Low and Nelson Chee from Peter Low Chambers — argued that the victim had imagined the act of molestation, as he was under the influence of the drugs used to sedate him, CNA reported. They added that Lee was not prohibited from physically examining the victim in the ward and that he had a "suspicion and cognitive bias" against Lee. In response, the prosecution noted that Lee himself had admitted that the victim did not have a reason to lie about his offences. Lee also claimed that he had entered the room just once to dispense medicine, ST reported. For each count of molestation, he can jailed for up to two years, fined, caned, or face any combination of such punishments. https://mothership.sg/2024/02/male-nurse-molest-patient/
  2. 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?
  3. In this digital era, our government need to take network reliability and cyber security seriously. Unlike the in the case of service disruption brought upon by DBS and M1 in the past few months, if hospital network is down and the doctor are not able to retrieve patient's record timely, it could be a life and death situation! Websites of Singapore public hospitals, polyclinics down due to 'internet access disruption' Source: https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/singapore-hospitals-errors-websites-not-loading-healthcare-polyclinics-3888231 SINGAPORE: The websites of all public hospitals and polyclinics in Singapore were down on Wednesday (Nov 1), with users reporting errors when trying to access them in the morning. Attempts to access the websites produced error messages saying their URLs could not be retrieved. The issue is due to an "internet access disruption" affecting all public healthcare clusters, said Synapxe, the national health tech agency. "Services requiring internet applications like websites, emails and the NUHS (National University Health System) contact centre are inaccessible," said the agency at about 1.45pm. It added that clinical services within the public healthcare network, such as access to patient records, remain accessible and unaffected. "We are currently working to resolve the issue and apologise for any inconvenience caused," said Synapxe, whose website was also inaccessible. The agency supports the operations of 46 public healthcare institutions, including acute hospitals and polyclinics, as well as around 1,400 community partners such as nursing homes and general practitioners. Singapore's public healthcare system is grouped into three clusters - SingHealth which runs hospitals and polyclinics in the east, the National Healthcare Group in the central region and NUHS in the west. The websites of Singapore General Hospital, National University Hospital and Tan Tock Seng Hospital were among those affected. The website of the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) was also inaccessible. Websites of private hospitals, such as Mount Elizabeth Novena and Raffles Medical Group, appear to be unaffected. The Ministry of Health and HealthHub websites were working. CNA has contacted the hospitals, healthcare clusters, AIC and the Infocomm Media Development Authority for more information. This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
  4. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/ndr-2022-masks-mandatory-public-transport-healthcare-places-pm-lee-120928088.html SINGAPORE — Mask wearing will only be made mandatory on public transport and in healthcare settings, such as hospitals and nursing homes, during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in Singapore. This was announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during his National Day Rally 2022 speech delivered in English on Sunday (21 August) night at the Institute of Technical Education headquarters at Ang Mo Kio. "Everywhere else, outdoors or indoors, masks will be optional. For schools in particular, we should not need masks in class," said Lee. Children need to be able to see the facial expressions of their teachers and of each other. which is crucial for their learning and development, he added. However, Lee stressed, "But don’t take off your masks just yet. Please wait for the detailed announcement from the MTF (multi-ministry COVID-19 taskforce)."
  5. Hi MCF bros/sis, I dunno if I should be writing this, but I guess I need help and seeking best legal advice and helping my relative and her family out. A close relative of mine had a minor operation 2 weeks ago at a local hospital, "thyroid nodule", basically a lump on the neck, throat area. The operation was to remove this lump. Operation was done and patient discharged the following day... "Note, patient and family asked doctor how come no need to use a "pipe" to discharge the "bad blood" when before the operation was done, they said there would be a need to.. Doctor implied that the blood was already discharged thus no need to... And there was also no CT Scan or scan after the surgery.. Okay, fine.... Since the doctor said so... Patient do notice the surgery area was noticeably "swollen", but its normal says doctor.... For 3 days, patient experience nausea, some pain, so finally cannot tahan, visited the doc on 3rd day after operation... Doc dismissed it as normal, prescribed some medicine and told her to go back... Okay, fine, since he says so.. 2 hours after she returned home, she vomitted blood.... Sharks, I send her straight to hospital, probably broke some traffic rules along the way, but it was an emergency, had to rush her immediately to hospital A&E.... That night she went through a CT Scan, her blood pressure was extremely low, apparently bad blood is still in her body. The following day, she had to be operated...... Coz theres still blood in her wounds.. The same doctor operated on her and deemed it a success again..... Claims to be a few possibilities, 1) Sepsis infection or blood infection after operation, (auto immune) or 2) first operetion's blood was not discharged fully and flow back to body..... or 3) virus infection A day after the 2nd operation, she developed breathing difficulties and at midnight the worse has happen, she needs to be warded into ICU... She needs to get her breathing back properly... Another day passed and further scans revealed that there's now blood in her lungs and her lungs is badly infected by the blood... Likely the same 3 causes as above.... Another operation needed and pipe inserted into the wounds to discharge the blood successfully.... 2 days later, the lung specialist I call that, not sure his term, but I call him the lung specialist, finally verbally revealed to her family that its the blood which was not discharged properly during the first operation..... WTF, how can this happen in our highly rated hospital...... Shes still in ICU after almost 2 weeks, recovering slowly and she may not fully recover her lungs as its "badly" damaged..... It seems like a simple operation gone awry, but none of the doctors admit its a mistake, only that lung specialist said so only. The bills are going to hefty..... Paid already 2 times in a week besides the first operation, they could run into hundreds of thousand if not in control... Question is, how can we confirm that its the hospital mistake, coz only the lung doctor admits its due to fault from the first operation.. The doctor who did the first operation says his operation is a success which is bull-crap..... We are trying to get the surgery/operation reports from the hospital, we just made the request this evening, but the nurse in ICU says she can only let us know if we can get it tomorrow, and she sounds very unwilling, asking us why we need that for, and we need the patient's consent when apparently she's in difficulty right now.... Hospital seems to with-holding these reports...... Any reputable lawyers which I can approach or any advices from you guys here which can help...... Thanks for listening guys... It had been a distressing week for her family and myself too.... Watching a healthy girl walking into SGH for a non-threatening surgery to be stuck in ICU now and through the fault of the doctor and the hospital still have the cheek to collect monies from her family...
  6. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/asia/thai-king-eldest-daughter-princess-bajrakitiyabha-mahidol-heart-lungs-kidney-support-3154316 BANGKOK: The Thai king's eldest daughter remained in hospital on Monday (Dec 19) receiving support for her heart, lungs and kidney, according to a palace statement after she collapsed last week. Princess Bajrakitiyabha Mahidol initially fell ill Wednesday evening during a military dog training session at Nakhon Ratchasima, north of the capital Bangkok. Known in Thailand as "Princess Bha", the 44-year-old is the eldest daughter of King Maha Vajiralongkorn and the only child from his first marriage. The kingdom's succession rules favour male heirs; however, the palace has not formally announced an heir apparent. Following the princess' collapse, she was flown to Bangkok where she continues to receive intensive medical care under close observation. In a statement issued Monday morning, the palace said her condition was "stable at one level" without elaborating. "Her royal highness' heartbeat is controlled by medicine," the statement said, adding that the systole - part of the process by which the heart beats - "does not go well". "The medical team has offered her royal highness medicine and equipment to support the work of her royal highness's heart, lung and kidney," the statement added. The princess holds an important ceremonial role in Thai society - where the royal family sits at the apex, protected from criticism by harsh defamation laws which carry prison sentences of up to 15 years per charge. Around the capital and across the kingdom, books of well-wishing for her recovery were laid out for Thais. On Saturday the palace announced that King Vajiralongkorn and his wife Queen Suthida had tested positive for COVID-19, with both reporting mild symptoms.

  9. 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...
  10. FoodPanda Rider’s Bike Clamped Outside A&E, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital Said It Obstructed Entrance Source: https://mustsharenews.com/foodpanda-riders-bike-clamped/ FoodPanda Rider’s Bike Wheel Clamped To Prevent Similar Incidents In The Future We often see food delivery riders whizzing around on their bikes as they go about their deliveries. On Thursday (5 Nov), a FoodPanda delivery rider allegedly parked his bike along one of the walkways at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH). Unfortunately for him, his bike was wheel-clamped as it was obstructing the entrance of the A&E department. The rider has since apologised and the matter was resolved. FoodPanda delivery rider’s bike clamped On Thursday (5 Nov), Facebook group SG Road Vigilante shared a picture of the FoodPanda rider’s bike getting wheel-clamped. A printed notice could also be seen on the bike. The bike was allegedly parked along the walkway of the A&E department at KTPH. According to the post, the bike was clamped as personal mobility devices (PMD) are not allowed in hospitals. Bike was obstructing A&E entrance Speaking to MS News, a KTPH spokesperson revealed that the bike was obstructing the walkway entrance of the A&E care centre. Hospital staff attempted to get in touch with the rider but to no avail. The spokesperson also shared that they chose to clamp the bike to prevent similar situations in the future. KTPH apparently has designated parking lots for PMDs and riders should not park at unauthorised locations. Eventually, the hospital managed to trace down the bike owner, who was apologetic about the matter. The case was eventually resolved “amicably” and the rider was not subjected to any penalty. Be responsible about parking PMD It certainly isn’t an everyday sight to see a bike get wheel-clamped. The incident serves as an important reminder to be responsible about where we park PMDs, especially at places like hospitals. Riders should always park at designated spaces whenever available.

  13. 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.
  14. 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.

  18. 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
  19. 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.

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.
