Covid-19 Patients are now being placed on Camp Beds outside Klang Hospital

Our healthcare system are one after another raising the warning signal as the number of Covid-19 cases continue to surge.

Yesterday (7 July), the Klang Member of Parliament (MP), Charles Santiago on his social media urged the authorities to immediately intervene in the crisis developing at Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital (HTAR).

In his Facebook post, he said that Covid-19 patients are now being placed outside the HTAR’s emergency department as the hospital is already out of capacity to allow more patients inside their facility.

“It was a heart-wrenching sight.”

“This also sums up the state of our healthcare and particularly this hospital: it’s overwhelmed – not enough beds, exhausted medical frontliners, plus medical equipment that are breaking down.” he said.

In addition, he requested the federal government to immediately intervene to mitigate the tragedy that is currently unfolding at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital.

“I am sending a letter to the Health Minister requesting an immediate increase in allocation for HTAR, so that a stand-alone temporary facility can be built to accommodate COVID-19 patients.”

“I urge the government to use nearby budget hotels and public halls as an interim measure to place patients.” he said.

Meanwhile, he also urge the big corporations based in Klang to provide support to the hospital as they needed medical equipment urgently.

“Let’s come together in this hour of need.” he said.

This is the second reported case where hospitals were being overwhelmed with patients and health officers are doing all they can to provide service to as much patients as they can.

Last week, doctors from the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital had shared the scene at their emergency department, where they were giving patients the cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the floor.

In addition, patients were left waiting on chairs and wheelchairs while they wait for treatment.
