KUCHING, April 9: Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Public Complaints Bureau (SUPP PCB) is taking up the case of a baby girl whose arm was amputated.

SUPP PCB chief Wilfred Yap was recently approached by an individual who told him that his baby daughter’s arm was amputated while receiving treatment at a hospital recently.

“The father had requested for advice and assistance as he was disappointed and not satisfied with the explanation given by the hospital staff concerned,” said Yap in a statement today.

Yap, who empathised with the individual and his predicament, has contacted the hospital concerned on the individual’s behalf.

As instructed by the hospital, Yap has formally written to the hospital to request a detailed medical report of the baby in respect of the diagnosis of her medical condition and the treatment given.

Yap said he would follow up with the hospital authorities and monitor the situation closely until the individual’s predicament is settled.

SUPP PCB would like to notify the public that there are many individuals who might be facing similar problems but do not know how to deal with it.

“We are always ready to give advice and lend a helping hand, provided it is a genuine case,” assured Yap.

Anyone requiring assistance may call SUPP PCB at 016-7797688 or 082-246999 or go directly to the SUPP Head Office to request for assistance. — DayakDaily
