Shocking Hospital Beds Statistics

The story which Gutzy Asia ran last night on patients at Ng Teng Fong hospital’s A&E having to wait more than 6 hours for a consultation and up to 25 hours for a hospital bed so outraged me that I decided to do some research.

We know of course that our population is 6 million,which has increased dramatically in recent decades because of immigration. Our government collects more than $10 Billion a year in Medisave if my recollection is correct. Now they say GST needs to increase because amongst other things we have an ageing population. But did you know that:-

Singapore has only 2.5 hospital beds for every 1000 people? Population- 6 million.

Japan, which is a famously ageing society,has 14 hospital beds for every 1000 people. Population- 123.3 million.

Korea has 12.8 hospital beds for every 1000 people. Population- 51.8 million.

China has 6.7 hospital beds for every 1000 people. Population- between 1.3 to 1.4 billion.

Taiwan has 5.9 hospital beds for every 1000 people m. Population- 24 million.

I will leave the facts to speak for themselves and for you to draw your own conclusions as to the state of health care for the ordinary Singaporean, who is unable to afford the Mt Elizabeth and Gleneagles.Even China with the world’s 2nd largest population can provide more than twice the hospital beds per 1000 people than Singapore with 6 million people!

Shocking and disgraceful!

Isn’t the solution clear? Stop the crazy immigration inflow and start building many more hospitals!

  • Top Reason:

    Sinkies dare not go hospital, and those who dare to go there are there for a holiday. Straight from the horse’s mouth.

  • Sporeans Keep Govt Employed:

    Some doctors can be rather irritable and impatient when dealing with patients or queries.

    Some counter nurses also make snarky remarks.

    But there are also nice and helpful people.

  • Build more:

    Unsatisfactory situation.
    Build more Community Hospitals and give more incentives for our people to go into medical industry quickly…
    Going private Hospital to cut long public queue is too expensive for most people..
    A recent simple private hospital operation cost more than $12K…with expensive follow up visits.
    MOH need to buck up…especially with Pandemic and Covid surge that can happen anytime with travel opening up again…

  • Top A level Student'':

    Chen Show Mow—”He was the president of the students’ council in National Junior College and was the top student for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE Advanced Level examinations in 1979,[7][8] outperforming his batchmates Vivian Balakrishnan and Lui Tuck Yew.”
    ”A graduate of Harvard, Oxford and Stanford, Chen was formerly a corporate lawyer at Davis Polk & Wardwell.”
    ”After he failed to gain admission into the medical school at the National University of Singapore,[9] he applied to study economics at Harvard University”
    Top A level of the whole cohort cannot get into medical school.
    It is who you know, not what you know.
    Hence shortage of doctors.
    The Cabal keep the good profession to themselves; limiting the numbers—hence increasing the pay.
    Therefore medical cost very very high.
    Number of doctors per 1000 in Sinkieland 2.4
    Number of doctors per 1000 in Cuba 8.4.
    Half of the Sinkieland doctors are servicing Indonesia/Malaysian Tycoons, Myanmar Generals…the guys with the big bucks.
    The Cabal controls everything.

  • 2Daft2Live:

    Perhaps, the biggest surprise is that we have a govt which persistently underspend on its people and gets away with it. 是可忍孰不可忍.

  • Charge at wrong hill:

    Most successful individuals not necessarily are those with the highest IQ.

    Number of hospital beds available per 1,000 citizens isn’t the most important indicator of good health care available.

  • Harder Truths:

    I believe this number is not correct. For $inkieland 2.5 beds / 1000 persons seems really a lot.

  • No Solution Desmond:

    ”HOUSING prices in Singapore are not expected to rise indefinitely ..National Development Minister Desmond Lee.” ST
    The only tiny little spot in the whole Universe where inhabitants EXPECT their flats to rise indefinitely.
    Even though majority sits on very very fast decaying 99 lease hold land.
    Sheeples-Sinkies have the lowest IQ in the Universe.
    Your 550,000 >40 year-old will head to zero very very soon.
    Your next Prime Minister name is Lawrence 99=Zero Wong.
    ST reporters in interview dare not ask about the BIGGEST elephant in the room’
    Sim Ann…Stay Tuned VERS. Perhaps tune in 100 years later.
    Nor the 550,000 lease decay problem in HDB.
    Nor the 100,000 old condos and apartments in Sinkieland.
    When papigs not able to solve a problem, they say stay tuned OR talk about 100 year old climate change problem like Long Island.
    Obfuscate.. obfuscate.. obfuscate…when you do not have a solution.

  • Empty BTO Flats during MOP:

    ”Singapore MPs raise concerns over temporary relaxation of occupancy cap for larger HDBs, private properties”
    ”The Housing Board said it carries out about 500 inspections per month to detect violations of housing rules”
    ”There were also reports of other empty BTO flats that appear to have never been lived in being listed for sale on property portals.”
    ….https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/empty-bto-flats-hdb-investigation-cases-property-portals-penalties-mop-3162821
    Every body know of somebody that have a BTO less than 5 year old being left EMPTY.
    The problem has been rampant for years.
    It has become a norm such that property agents dare to advertise the fact that they illegally left it empty during MOP.
    The youngsters and their parents know that ‘BTO then sell at MOP-end’ is a SURE make money strategy.
    Hence the BTO-empty MOP game is rampant.
    HDB investigates 500 case PER MONTH—that itself proves that it is rampant!
    Raising tenants to 8 is a lousy solutuon.
    Enforce the no-Empty-BTO law will definitely solve the problem!
    Wake up HDB—enforce your own law!
