Probe focuses on operating theatre incident at Sungai Buloh Hospital, Subra clarifies

SUNGAI BULOH: The probe announced earlier this week is not into Radicare as a whole, but the operating theatre incident at Sungai Buloh Hospital, clarified Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam.

"The incident will be probed. We have a monthly audit of Radicare, and of course the men on the ground in the hospitals conduct daily internal monitoring," he said.

He told reporters during a press conference at Sungai Buloh Hospital that the operating theatres (OTs) would be up and running in about 10 days' time.

Radicare chief operating officer Halwah Abdul Manaf urged hospital staff with complaints about service to approach the company directly.

This follows reports of Radicare’s rubbish collection problem when it changed cleaning contractors in several hospitals, leading to overflowing rubbish and dirty toilets, as well as the shutting down of 12 out of 22 OTs at the hospital after a fire.

Subramaniam had stressed that the OT problem was not due to Radicare but caused by an electrical fire.
