Hospitalised Again.

Back in September 2007, I wrote about Pakngah being hospitalised in Teluk Intan. Not more than 30 minutes ago, I received a text message from him - this time he has been warded into Institute Jantung Negara. But it is not for a heart problem, rather, the clinic at Kuala Selangor made a blunder while preparing him for dialysis treatment and somehow - don't ask me how - punctured his lungs! He was then rushed to Teluk Intan Hospital, and some 4 days ago the hospital there rushed him to IJN.

Knowing the cost of treatment in hospitals these days, I asked how would he be paying for the bills, as he is, an OKU. With a sad voice he said he would be asking for leniency. That does not sound good at all to me! I mean, the blunder was made by the clinic and thus, should not the clinic be the one who is supposed to pay?

Anyway, should anyone want to visit him, kindly do so at the address below:

Abdul Malik Othman
Was Mawar, Tkingkat 2
Katil 17, IJN.

or call him at: +6019 256 6407 / 019-3463065

And should anyone would like to offer financial assistance, you may do so at:
maybank akuan 112193043861 ( Mohd Nazri Othman – Adik)

On behalf of Pakngah and his family, I thank you in advance.

ps. The 2 telephone numbers above belong to members of his family.

Don't pay a single sen, its not like he took something and stab his lungs. Make a police report, that should come first.

Anyway, my doa that your pakngah will pull through.

Salam Cikgu,

That's what I told him too - the clinic should pay! But I don't think he will listen and may find myself down in KL tomorrow.

Thank you for the do'a, though I have to make clear one thing: Pakngah and I are not related. In fact, I have only met him once, and that was in the previous posting I did when I visited him at his house. The bond that we have is we both are regulars on the net; while I send news, pakngah use to send religious materials.

Thought I need to make it clear before any misunderstand. Forgive me if its wrongly interpreted.

yes, i waned to write exactly what cikgu had wrote. it wont be fair if Pakngah had to fork out, even a single sen. and with his status as an OKU, he should seek some assistance from the JKM people near his place. this is big money we're talking about. no disrespect to him and his family but i dont think pakngah could ever afford it.

Get Elviza to see how lawyers like her can do to help Pak Ngah. Thanks for the account number. Will do my small bit for charity.

Wa'alaikumusalam Pak Zabs,

Yes, you and Cikgu are right. Cuma, I have not had the proper chance to tell him, tak sempat ke sana hari ni. InsyAllah, tomorrow morning I will visit him,

Salam Pak Zawi,

Elviza eh? Sounds a good idea, thank you. InsyAllah, I will ask her.

Salam Shah:

Normally, if the blunder is done by the hospital, make a complaint to the hospital administration(pengarah hospital) and it is better to make a police report too. Cover pakngah's bases,for we know its going to be a ding-dong here and there.

Investigations take a very long time because when it comes to compensations a lot of department and levels are involved from state to putrajaya level.And most of the time,patients will get compensation.

But since pakngah is in IJN, things need to go fast bcoz of the cost he have to bear. Why not go to the press too. I am sure Harian Metro love this kind of stuff.

My du'a for pakngah's speedy recovery.
