When we bring our sick loved ones to the doctor, we are affording these practitioners our full trust. We think of them as the best people who could help our troubled loved ones. We trust that more than anyone, they are the ones who wouldn’t let anything bad happen to sick people. However, this open letter written by a netizen would make you think twice about putting this much trust on some white coats.
This netizen took to Facebook to rant about what her grandmother allegedly experienced while under the care of a public Medical Center.
As far as she was concerned, her grandmother could still be alive today if medical practitioners in the said hospital took better care of her.
The netizen revealed in her open letter how her grandmother spent two days in the emergency room because the hospital ran out of space in the wards. Her trust in the medical practitioners started to wane when she noticed doctors and nurses sleeping on the job every morning. When she complained about the nasogastric tube (NGT), the doctor she talked to just went back to sleep.
That’s when she decided to take photos of the sleeping medical practitioners. The netizen said in her open letter that she understood how taxing the medical profession was — she just doesn’t get why everyone takes sleeping breaks all at the same time. This invited mixed reactions from netizens.
In the end, her grandmother did not make it out of the medical center alive. She is now calling the attention of the government, whom she believes is partly responsible because the medical practitioners who allegedly neglected her grandmother are on the government’s payroll.
