    Hope everything turns out well for you.

    I would hate the same situation if i were you, paying everyday but nothing concrete is done.

    Usually, the main doctor will also do their rounds early morning at SGH, but it may be that they are now all consultants and only handle the more complicated cases or very urgent ones.......usually they will have meetings where all doctors come together to discuss certain cases.

    It could be that if Medisave is not enough, you need to pay upfront and they will deduct from that amount till you are discharged. Any balance they will return off course, this is a normal procedure for foreign patients......

    Hospitals don't want to run with unpaid bills, it is a business too.

    Stop being so skeptical all the time.

    JSBN: It is true you need to pay an amount upfront b4 you are admited.
    Hmm? Maybe my cases was different? I dun recall having to cough out a cent though.

    Still, back to topic. All the best wishes for DeSwitch's mum.
    If its really fast diagnosis, great service he's looking for, seriously.... Private Hospital Option. But that definitely means more than $200++ for the room.

    sad to hear about your mom, i hope she is fine

    don't worry about the bill too much, it is secondary
    only speak to the main doctor, he has the whole picture

    Thanks for all concerned. I'm heading to the hospital now to take over from my sis.
    non resident might be paying close to private rate. Do check out if private hospitals charge for similiar ward

    Aiyah...Non resident - that's why very expensive.
    If she's a citizen, then Govt will have subsidies for your mum.
    For every test or X-ray performed, Govt will subsidise 45% of cost.

    Bro, hope all goes well,
    like others have stated, ask for updates when you are there. ask who is the doc incharge of your mom and updates from him. there are 2 kind of docs there, who are the general wand doc and the specific doc for your mom's case.
    so 2 updates you should be able to know. dun need to ask nurse, they dun know, only ask them when the 2 doc would make the round meeting your mom.
    sad but true thing is not to rush the doc. make sure the nurses do their work properly like medication and basic cleaning if needed.
    hope this infor helps, I stay for a week+ once. hated it, now stay healthy is important, money can make one.

    have you seen any person being turned away from hospital being stomped yet?

    i'm sure the stomper gang would be more than happy to stomp, after all they are always armed with their magical handphones which can take video and photographs

    My 8 year old daughter recently had a day surgery and cost $4,000 and 5Dec she is going for a laser procedure to remove some membrane, another ~$1,000.

    This is fact, medical is not cheap in SG.

    But this cannot apply to the everyone, which probably the masses cant afford to. I don't mind plonking obscene amount to see a loved one get better. What if you don't have the money that the hospital ask for? Where would u go?

    Like some say here, its funny that they would want the payment upfront before giving more attention?

    Never trust Stats entirely and never trust people who always uses stats to show their case.
