Our heathcare workers are humans too

Our heathcare system is crumbling and overwhelmed, hospitals are operating severely beyond capacity (some beds are even in corridors) and yet people still expect so much out of our healthcare workers.

My sister finished her call yesterday and immediately came home and broke down crying, she was so tired that she just went to the room and crashed. Her team of doctors and heathcare workers could barely eat or even hydrate for the entire day and I question how is this even stable or sustainable?

It’s easy to talk and pay a cheap tribute by saying to hang in there but where is the system to ensure that they have adequate welfare, rest and support? The superiors are mostly concerned about headcount as they are forced to squeeze the remain medical personnel who didn’t fall to covid or burnout.

I also really wish people could be more socially responsible and not be entitled, our heathcare workers are humans too.

    Yes, we PAP support you and we PAP are pushing hard for by appointment only in all hospital to ease the load of health care workers.

    Unfortunately, Opposition supporters are opposing it. They felt that it is their entitlement to drop in at anytime they want machiam like they visit back lane house.

    Maybe put more of the less serious patient in temporary Centers (in Expo and Changi Exhibition Centre etc) and run by SAF/NS man.

    Expect more cases…

    Yes, that is why we PAP said girls must serve 2 years NS in nursing, early child care and elderly care sector.

    Opposition only knows how to oppose but has no solution.

  • SINGAROAR:

    In First World countries, one nurse is assigned to one patient in the ICU. In an emergency, the ratio might increase to one nurse to four patients. This is to ensure that patients get the extra care that they would require. It would be impossible for any heath care worker to manage twenty or more cases. So why are we in this situation?

    1.Increase in foreign population even in a pandemic without factoring in the nos. of HCWs.

    2.Continuing to allow those on medical tourist visas to enter Singapore in a pandemic. Thus placing more pressure on the health care.

    3.Leaving the borders open even when the hospitals are overloaded.

    These factors will be crucial prior to increasing the population for a govt. who looks after its own citizens but dear fellow citizens we do not have a government but an enforcement party that forces the consequences of its mistakes to be borne by the Public. HCWs should know that their suffering is not because of the Public but due to an absence of planning and governance of the State.

  • Billy ma:

    More than a month ago, PAP shouted very loudly that the cases will rise to over 10,000.
    And from then until now what did PAP do?
    Nothing & not much apparently.

    Who set rules that instruct employers to terminate employees who are unvaccinated?

    Now who threaten employers for asking for MC for tested positive?

    Singaporean nurses quit?
    PAP got thousands overseas waiting to come in at a moment notice.

    Who afraid who!

    //said girls must serve 2 years NS in nursing, early child care and elderly care sector.//

    aiyoh. boys already wasted 2 years somemore want girls to waste 2 years for doing cheap labour while white gang may enjoy free medical services ???

    while open-leg policy welcome FTs (no need to serve ??) to “steal” (also nicely know as competing for ??) jobs ??

    with this kind of maths, no wonder white monkey idiots like the sound of ownself-check-ownself one curry party function ???

  • a more serious virus:

    //Yes, we PAP support you and we PAP are pushing hard for by appointment only in all hospital to ease the load of health care workers.//

    aiyoh. many in the pre-covit99 era coming down with fever, flu or cough will straight away rush to to clinics hor ??

    now, convit99 (supposedly a more serious virus than pre-convit fever, flu, cough ???), is normalized as something not very serious if it is “MILD” and can self recuperate and medicate at home liao ???

    if convit99 is ever being eradicated in the future, next time any fever, flu and cough can also be made light and those falling sick will told to rest at home if it not serious liao (save up on medical fees for companies ???) ???
