Saravanan upset by ‘napping’ A & E doctorsnow, that is a very strong accusation.
KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk M. Saravanan caught two doctors at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) emergency department doing their own thing instead of attending to patients waiting for treatment.
he went on to bark,
“I was shocked to find one doctor reading a newspaper and the other doing his own stuff.The Star checked out what happened.
“This should not be the way doctors work. The patient should come first. Furthermore, it is the emergency unit, which is supposed to be fast in dispensing treatment,”
initial findings showed that the two doctors were housemen who had just completed their shift.Saravanan should not have resorted to these stupid heroic cheap shots, calling the press to air his very much mistaken views on government doctors whom we all know are terribly, terribly overworked and underpaid.
She said HKL’s investigation showed that there were only eight patients and 20 relatives waiting for treatment and that none of the patients were in pain as stated by Saravanan.
He accused before checking the facts, he painted a lazy and uncaring picture of the doctors.
[btw, Lulu thinks he should issue an apology to the hospital and the doctors for his unwarranted remarks]
Can you imagine, this is the chap who is Deputy Federal Territories Minister.
Going by this incident, Lulu is really concerned how he acts upon problems and challenges faced by his ministry. Will he react instantly or will he study the problem and act on it?
What do you think?
