Hospital confirms individual required medical assistance
Assoc Prof Ng Kee Chong, Chairman of the Medical Board at KKH, told MS News that medical staff from the hospital provided medical assistance to a member of the public at around 3.30pm on Friday.
“Our team immediately responded and promptly stabilised the medical condition of this member of the public. Due to its proximity to KKH, many of our colleagues were at the location where the incident occurred,” he said.
It also happened that the timing of the incident also coincided with the time when KKH colleagues were changing shifts, Assoc Prof Ng added.
KKH has in place a 24-hour emergency response protocol where a dedicated multidisciplinary team is on standby to respond to emergency code activations in the hospital immediately.
However, the hospital is unable to disclose more details about the individual, citing medical confidentiality.
While it is unclear what happened to the individual, we hope they are safe and well.
Kudos also go to the medical staff who dropped everything to render assistance outside the hospital.
