She had and appointment at the Govt Clinic at 5PM , usually i pick her up when she is done , but thanks to a jealous biatch i work with i couldn’t go . But then she called , she was frantic and panicky , she said Doctor said she couldn’t hear baby’s heart beat and she had to go to Sabah hospital URGENT to do the scan . She asked the Doctor what was wrong but the Doctor wouldn’t explain or even talk to her anything but chased her away by saying ‘go , go ‘ .
As i said i couldn’t go , she called a friend who is a taxi driver and he took her to Sabah hospital at 7pm and after anxiously waiting for hours the doctor there did the scan and everything was OK . I mean there was no threat what so ever , just the Doctor at the Clinic was using primitive equipments , and she said the Doctor was pressing her stomach so hard to check the baby movements . The worst part is my wife doesn’t speak Arabic and the Doctors in Kuwait hardly speak English , even Babu our Chaprasi aka the ‘tea boy ‘ speaks much better English than some of those doctors in the Govt Clinic . The health ministry has made millions since 2001 since the health insurance was introduced but the quality and service of the Health care industry is worse than third world country’s . What a shame . First there are no sign board in English , you have to find that ‘one’ English speaking Bangali cleaner to know the details . Then when the turn comes Doctors are so in a hurry or busy gossiping they don’t even care to look at you and talk straight , so much is the arrogance if you are a Govt employee , its like they are doing some big favour to the society …… I can go on with this rant but i am disgusted …. disgusted … disgusted how a fellow human being , a medical professional can scare living daylights of a pregnant woman just because they just don’t care ….
We almost died every second of the four hours ordeal that she went through ! May God bless every one at Health care Industry in Kuwait . What else i can say !
