Most concerns of health insurance card holders, especially the elder, at state hospitals are that it took hours to see doctors.


At 6 Am everyday, the ward for insurance health examination of Nguyen Tri Phuong hospital in Ho Chi Minh City’s district 5 is not open but patients throng the lobbies and benches around the ward.

Moreover, the number of waiting patients for their turns to see doctors on the electronic board is 2,000.  Ms Le Thi Kim Thuy in suburban district Binh Chanh said she had to get up at 4 Am, but she had 2118 number in hand.


Meanwhile another patient in district 7 complained that it took him two hours to able to see doctors but a doctor just had a quick look and asked him to pay money for heart rate monitoring and heart scan. He ought to seek these rooms to have his heart monitored and scanned.


The situation is the same in other public medical clinics. A crowd of patients lie down or sit in every corner and available space in the city-based Traumatic Orthopedic Hospital and People’s 115 Hospital.


In a meeting to review one year implementation of new health insurance law which comes into effect on July 1, 2009, Bui Minh Dong, deputy chief of the city Society Insurance Company said more over 4 million people joined health insurance, 40 percent higher than the time before the new law taking effect but only a few hospitals have applied IT in management of patients practically.


In addition, facilities of some district medical clinics in poor repair can’t satisfy increasing demands as Dr. Tran Thanh My, director of the Traumatic Orthopedic Hospital complained.


Dr. Nguyen Dai Bien, head of the Examination Ward of the People’s 115 Hospital, said it takes a long time find rooms patients need, nurses are assigned to lead patients to exact rooms; however, it is big efforts of the hospital because it serenely lacks personnel and  financial problems.


Moreover, some hospitals want to raise staffs’ monthly earning by encouraging patients to use additional services. Anyone wants to see doctors soon, they should pay additional sum of VND47,000.


It is needed to work out a saving-time examination process.

Ferguson annoyed at ref as United’s home run ends

In Vietnam Sports on November 27, 2009 at 2:24 am

MANCHESTER, England, Nov 26, 2009 (AFP) – Sir Alex Ferguson claimed his side were denied a ‘stonewall’ penalty by French referee Stephane Lannoy after Manchester United’s long unbeaten home record in Europe was ended by Besiktas.


Ferguson was annoyed that Lannoy waved away strong appeals after substitute Patrice Evra was fouled by Ibrahim Kas in the closing stages of Besiktas’s 1-0 win at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

The United manager, who has found himself in trouble domestically for criticising match officials this season, is running out of patience after claiming it was the second successive game in Europe that United have been denied a penalty.


“That’s two games in a row we’ve been denied a stonewall penalty in Europe,” said Ferguson.


“It’s not in the spirit of the game, but what can you do? “If you can’t give these kicks then the game is in trouble.”


Asked whether he still stood by his view, which he aired earlier this season, that the standard of refereeing in Europe is better than in England, he replied: “I’m not going into that. No comment.”


Ferguson refused to criticise his young players afterwards as a United side made up of youth and experience suffered an unexpected setback which leaves them with work to do to secure top spot in Group B.


They must avoid defeat in their final game in Germany against Wolfsburg on December 8, but Ferguson refused to divulge what sort of side he will field for that fixture.


England striker Wayne Rooney was given a rare night off against Besiktas while the likes of Michael Owen, Michael Carrick, Paul Scholes and Darren Fletcher started on the bench.


The tactic backfired as Besiktas’s experience proved enough to secure a victory that will give United’s Champions League rivals encouragement.


Yet Ferguson declined to lay the blame at the feet of his youngsters. Danny Welbeck, who turns 19 on Thursday, started his first Champions League game for the club alongside 19-year-old Federico Macheda in attack.


“You need a bit of composute in the last third, but the young players were a bit anxious. It’s understandable,” added Ferguson.


“It’s not the biggest fault in the world.


“You have to be fair in terms of assessing the players we’re playing in these games at the moment.


“The fact we play them tells you how much we value them. The one thing we can give them is experience.”


Ferguson also refused to criticise keeper Ben Foster. The England international was beaten by a long-range effort by Rodrigo Tello which took a deflection.


“It was proably going a foot to his right hand side. It was a wicked deflection,” said Ferguson.


“I think he would have (saved it if it had not taken a deflection).”


Besiktas coach Mustafa Denizli saluted his players for an historic victory for Turkish football.


“To come to Manchester United and play at Old Trafford, we know it’s very difficult to win games here,” said Denizli.


“We’re obviously very pleased with the result. The whole world knows what a big team United is.


“The players did their duties and everyone did the job that was asked of them.”
