*150 - H1N1: Not Very Happy Experience With SJMC

My younger bro was having fever, flu, cough, body ache bla bla bla since yesterday... This morning he went to SJMC to seek outpatient treatment... But something the hospital did makes me feel tat its very irresponsible...

Let's make it clear 1st... h1n1 is just a mild flu, it dont need any medication... Read my post *110 - Overreaction on h1n1 first before proceed k :)

Firsty, the government is now trying their best to control the spreading of the disease... it can be done only by public awareness... but the doctor just now told us tat "dont worry, h1n1 is everywhere already, just take off ur mask"... this sounds like she is promoting spreading of the virus in a way that since virus is everywhere, just ignore the precaution...

Secondly, its just stupid plain consultation talking and we were charged with a bill of rm200+. WTF. No throat swabs, nothing, already rm200. Who wanna go see doctor like tat? and i heard if u wanna to do a throat swab to confirm h1n1, it will cost u around rm500... its ur call =.=

Thirdly, the drug, tamiflu is not necessary for everyone... its just a flu symptom relieving drug which helps u in away and prevent u develop complications... and the doctor did explain this to my dad too... and she said tat tamiflu is in shortage in Malaysia... if we insist to get the drug, they can sell us by higher price... WTF is tat? Why cant the hospital just tell u u dun need it and stop earning from this pandemic =.=

I just cant accept wat the private hospitals did... Rubbish and Cut throat...

Unprofessional doctors are here n there even in gov hospital and clinics. No further diagnosis but jz gv away medicine according to simple symptoms 'with expensive consultation fees without any consultation'.
Case 1, dr in kulim hosp gave me bunches of paracetamol without proper checking on my rashes n my continuous 3weeks of fever but told me i didnt hav malaria or dengue.
Case 2,my fren went to check his neck for an unknown swelling in seberang jaya, aft waiting for 4hrs, the dr told him thr's no sign of cancer though the blood screening n asked him to come only if he's IN PAIN..
LOL..

had to agree on tat... but the education system now seems like producing more unprofessional doctors... and worst is some of them dont really even hav the minimum required knowledge of medicine...

Which dr. is tat? Sometimes it's luck for us to meet a nice dr too. Not every dr. in private is bad really. But not denying those ruthless dr. existing too~
