Jombang Hospital forced to put a number of patients in the hallway because the room was full of patients hospitalized. Hospital Kapasista Jombang only able to accommodate 35 patients, but this time the patient was recorded as 60 people over.
Deputy Director of the Hospital Jombang, Praise Umbaran admitted to the hospital until overwhelmed by patients who continued to arrive every day.
During this time, Praise, hospitals Jombang only have child care room with a capacity of 35 people. But that comes at this time to reach 60 more so officers were forced to put them in the halls with an extra bed.
"They are generally treated patient referrals from various health centers where conditions are considered severe," he explained in hospitals Jombang, Friday (12/28/2012).
In fact, because the halls are too full, hundreds of other dengue patients coming to hospitals Jombang had referred to the private hospitals.
Previously, hospitals Jombang only 4-6 patients in the coming week. But lately the number reached more than 40 people.
"We're no longer able to accommodate patients. Forced Every time we refer new patients to other hospitals," he said.
According Praise, the number of dengue fever patients this year is far more than the previous year. He suspects, because it is a four-year cycle so that the numbers are unexpectedly high, as happened in 2008.
