On Visiting Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL)


My running nose got worst on Saturday night ... I was sneezing away.... tear flew out from my eyes non-stop... I hardly could sleep... *Sob Sob* it has been days, i thought the Panadol soluable could help me to recover as soon as possible... I felt better every morning after i woke up but felt worst before the day ends...

I woke up @ about 9am yesterday morning, took a nice steamy shower, got myself change and headed out to Hospital Kuala Lumpur.... It's about 15 mins drive from my place. I parked my car and headed to the outpatient session, filled the form and paid RM1.00 to register myself ... the nurse passed me a card with room number ... So i dropped my registration card on the tray in front of the room... There was a male nurse helping to check the blood pressure and temperature before seeing the doctor...

Male Nurse: (calling my name)
Me: Good morning
Male Nurse: Good morning. (he move my sleeve and place the blood pressure things on my right arm) What happen to you?
Me: I have a running nose, an extreme coughing non-stop with greenish pharmy and itchy throat.
Male Nurse: When is this happen?
Me: Last Monday
Male Nurse: (give me a weird look) Oh it has been a week. Er.....
Me: I was using Panadol Soluable but the cough and running nose came and gone...
Male Nurse: Do you have a fever?
Me: I don't think i have a fever.
Male Nurse: (write 37C @ the temperature column, didn't even measure my temperature)
Me: (Giving him a surprise look)
Male Nurse: (Give me a smile) You have a sit, the doctor will attend to you shortly.
Me: Thank you.

I walked over to the bench and sat patiently, listened to my iPod waiting for my turn to see the doctor. After 10 mins, the nurse called my name again and it's my turn to see the doctor. The doctor was a young lady... she's very friendly and she's asking lots of detail questions.... then she listened to my breathing etc .... Finally, she gave me a list of medicine... oh before that she was asking me whether i had any ellergy to any kind of medicine.

Left the doctor room and headed to the medicine dispensary to get the medicine... I waited about 10 mins to get my medicine... Walked back to the carpark and left HKL...

Guess how much i had spent for seeing the doctor including the medicine, parking? Anyone wanna to have a guess?

Hmmm...RM 5?

I did remember medicine from govt hospitals are free so no extra charges there...

Jonzz said...

RM 10 for flirting with doctor?

Sam said...

I assume it's... around 2-5 ringgit. Should be pretty cheap I think, coz' it's all government subsidized?

Remember to take your medicine - won't be too good if you continue to be sick like this. Sounds worse than mine even. :(

Get well soon!

I know lah it must be RM8. I kena before @#$% hospital. I highly recommend you to see Chinese doctors off Petaling Street. Medicine RM4 and RM2 parking fees only. I am not cheapo but their analysis is so damn good that my corporate friends have also flocked there.
