A video emerged online showing a patiently purportedly from Sengkang General Hospital, placing a Foodpanda order for painkillers after claiming that he asked the hospital staff for some and they didn’t give it to him.
According to the video, the man in the video, wearing a patient’s garbs, was seen walking towards the lift from the ward area of the hospital.
He then starts off the video by explaining his situation, saying “alright, I’m at Sengkang Hospital right now. This is the funny part, okay? I have asked for my painkiller(s) (for) almost 2 hours, so I decided to order through FoodPanda.”
He added that his FoodPanda order had arrived and the security can’t let the rider go up to the wards, so he had to go down and collect his order from the rider.
He then lamented his situation, saying “can you imagine? asking for Panadol and you cannot get (it) from a first world hospital, Sengkang Hospital, it’s really ridiculous”.
Upon reaching the ground floor, the man proceeded to meet the rider to collect his order, he then asked the rider to show the camera what he ordered – some painkillers and a bottle of water.
He then told the rider about what happened, saying that he had waited 2 hours for painkillers and didn’t get it, as the rider gasped in response.
He then continued his rant and said that it’s really ridiculous that he couldn’t get his painkillers and having to resort to FoodPanda to get his pills.
The man then added that he is going to AMA the next day, which means (discharge) against medical advice, as he said “no point, I want to get medicine also cannot then how? might as well at home, I have my painkillers from SGH,” before returning to his ward.
