Hospital reaches out to road accident victim


Wong being assisted by Perak Community Specialist Hospital staff during a physiotherapy session at her home in Kampung Simee.

FOLLOWING a road accident in November last year, a couple in Kampung Simee lost their source of income and became destitute.

Although the husband eventually recovered, his wife, Wong Kwi Yuen, 43, was not as lucky.

She sustained severe head injuries and after a major operation to remove blood clots from her brain, Wong was left almost completely bedridden and dependent on tube feeding for sustenance.

Having learned about the family’s situation, Perak Community Specialist Hospital (PCSH) came forward to assist the family.

The hospital’s accident and emergency department head Dr Edward Lim and several hospital staff visited Wong and provided her with nutritional health drinks, adult diapers, sanitary products and medication.

The team also offered advice on looking after the bedridden Wong and provided her with complimentary physiotherapy sessions.

Hospital chief executive officer Nicholas Chan said as of last month, Wong had shown positive signs of recovery following the sessions.

He said Wong was continuing her hourly physiotherapy sessions at the hospital every week.

“We are a not-for-profit hospital that aims to provide quality and affordable healthcare to the underprivileged.

“I hope more people will come forward and do their part to help the underprivileged and sick.

“Those who know of any needy patients that require medical treatment can contact the hospital’s public relations and welfare department, ” he added.

The hospital’s public relations and welfare department can be reached at 016-523 9000 or email kkwong@pcsh.com.my
