En­sure sup­ply of medicines

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPEAK UP -

“NO drug short­age” (Front page, Nov 17) refers. This is the sec­ond time in re­cent months theSun has re­ported re­gard­ing “no short­age of drugs in hos­pi­tals”.

The first time it was re­ported, there was a short­age of the drug ator­vas­tatin (for heart pa­tients) at the Taip­ing Hospi­tal and I had to wait for more than two weeks to get my sup­ply. Now at the time of writ­ing, Taip­ing Hospi­tal is short of Tru­soft, an eye drop med­i­ca­tion for pa­tients who have un­der­gone cataract surgery and it is more than two weeks and there is no sign as to when pa­tients can get their sup­ply.

I hope those who are re­spon­si­ble will en­sure med­i­cal drugs are avail­able to pa­tients at all times.
