- A mother who just lost her beloved child, warns everyone about the same doctor who treated her daughter.
- Mourning mother shares how an unprofessional doctor failed to fulfill her duty as a medical practitioner.
Doctors are professionals who vowed to do the best they can to heal whoever their patient may be. They spent a lot of years to acquire sufficient knowledge for them to be able to save lives and bring back a person from his family in a well state.
Doctors are the reason why people are healthy and well despite of the illness their patients had gone through, but unfortunately, some of them are also the exact same reason why a family grieves the loss of their loved one.
A Facebook user named Anika Sarmiento posted an intriguing status on her account, warning the netizens about a certain doctor from Philippine General Hospital. What might be the reason for it?
Read her shocking revelation below:
“SYA YUNG DOCTOR NA NAGSABING IPABAGSAK DAW NG 10 YUNG PLATELET NG ANAK KO EH 20 NA LANG NUNG ISINUGOD KO. UUSIGIN KA NG KONSENSYA MO. DI KA NA NAHIYA EH SAMANTALANG NUNG MGA PANAHONG IPINAPA ADMIT KO SYA ININSULTO MO PA AKO ANONG TANONG MO NON? “BAKIT MAY PERA BA KAYO HA? KAYA MO BA BAYARAN KAHIT WALANG PONDO DAHIL SATURDAY” MAY DONOR AKO NON! PARA MASALINAN AGAD SYA! MAY LINYA NA DIN SYA KAYA DI NA NEED TUSUKAN NG CATHULA. ANONG GINAWA MO? PINAGANTAY MO! EDI SANA BUHAY PA ANAK KO NGAYON! HINDI SYA NANDUN SA SEMENTONG MALAMIG! SANA KAYAKAP KO SYA!”
On the first part, Sarmiento shared how her poor child was asked to wait despite of the urgency of the girl’s case. She was even insulted by the doctor, sarcastically asking if she has enough money.
“PATI PAGPAPA BREASTFEED KO IPINAPATIGIL MO! NAPAKA BAIT NG ANAK KO! ALAM YAN KAHIT NG MGA PHLEB NA KUMUKUHA NG SAMPLE NG DUGO SA KANYA! KAHIT MGA INTERN AT RESIDENTE NA MAS NAG-TYAGA KESA SAYO WALA KANG KWENTA! KADA TUSOK SA KANYA MALAMBING PA SYANG MAG WE-WAVE GOODBYE AT MAG F-FLYING KISS SA INYO! DI KA NAHABAG? HA! NI SANA MAN LANG KINAUSAP MO AKO NUNG NAWALA SYA. PERO ANO? NAKIKIPAG KWENTUHAN LANG KAYO AT NAGTATAWANAN. AKALA KO NAGBAGO KA NA KASE BUNTIS KA. PERO WALA KANG HABAG SA KATAWAN! HINDI NATAPOS ANG BUHAY NG ANAK KO NG WALA LANG.”
Sarmiento also shared how the doctor showed lack of concern for her own patient, acting all care-free as if there is no dying patient waiting to be treated by her.
“LAKAS NG MUKHA MO PAGSABIHAN AKO NOON NA “EH KASE DAPAT KASAL MUNA BAGO BUNTIS” EH DIBA KINASAL KA MALAKI NA DIN TYAN MO? AKO HINARAP KO LAHAT KAHIT WALA AKONG ASAWA. KINAYA KO PERO NASAYANG LAHAT NG KAPABAYAAN NYO. HINDI LANG IKAW.”
Moreover, she was also insulted for being pregnant before getting married, when in fact; the doctor herself also experienced the same thing.
“DAPAT NATATANGGALAN KAYO NG LISENSYA! DI KAYO TUMUTUPAD SA OATH NA SINUMPAAN NYO. SOBRANG PABAYA NYO! PATI 3ML NA PREDNISONE IPAPAINOM MO KAHIT DI PA 24 HOURS NA WALA YUNG LAGNAT? E DAPAT PALA LOW DOSE LANG AT 1.3ML LANG YON! IPAPA OVERDOSE MO PA ANG ANAK KO E STEROID YON!”
Prednisone belongs to a class of drugs called Corticosteroids, commonly used as a treatment for some diseases including cancer. Too much of this drug can cause different side effects and one of those is heart rhythm problems.
“ILAN NA NASAKSIHAN KO PERO BUONG PUSO AKO NAGTIWALA SA INYO. SINIRA MO LAHAT! NAMATAY ANG ANAK KONG LUMALABAN! ALAMO YAN!”
Sarmiento’s child diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis unfortunately died, but she was definitely positive that her child did her best to fight her illness.
When the netizens shared their thoughts, some of them revealed their own stories of what happened when they were the patients of the said hospital.
Some of the patients die either because they cannot fight anymore, or when they aren’t given the treatment they are supposed to receive from these professionals.
When an incident like this happens, how can a mother ever be at peace knowing her child died due to someone else’s negligence?
