KHÁNH HÒA — All clinics in the central coastal province of Khánh Hòa’s Nha Trang City have deteriorated with underdeveloped tools and machines, Lê Phán, director of the Nha Trang Medical Centre, said.

On average, each doctor at a clinic examines some 100 patients per day, three times higher than the health sector’s regulations.

Phán said the city has a total of five clinics all of which were built more than 10 years ago, with limited scope.

Although there are enough machines, they are outdated, according to the official.

Typically, clinic No 3 was built more than 15 years ago and has not been upgraded even once. The walls have peeled off and are mouldy.

At Clinic No 2, the examination room was also used as the waiting room due to a lack of space, Phán said.

The shortage of modern machines at the clinics has forced many patients to be moved to central hospitals.

Besides this, Damrey Typhoon, which occurred at the beginning of last month, caused further damage to the clinics.

Each clinic has 5-6 doctors, however, in one day only 3-4 doctors conduct health checks on patients. The remaining have to attend regular training courses to improve their qualifications.

Phán said the number of patients is the highest on Monday and Friday, and most are retired and old.

The city health sector is now collecting all efforts to build the Nha Trang City Hospital in accordance with the Khánh Hòa Province’s construction plan, he said.

The municipal health sector completed the design to build the Nha Trang City Hospital last year, but faced several troubles related to location of the new hospital, therefore, construction work has not started. — VNS
