Family Explanation

Arif Susanto, who is the patient’s husband, said his wife, Asih Sekarningsih, was diagnosed with end-stage skin cancer nine months ago.

Previously, Asih was treated at the Santo Yusuf Hospital, Bandung City.

Due to limited medical equipment, the patient was referred to Hasan Sadikin Hospital (RSHS) Bandung and has been receiving intensive care since Wednesday (11/5/2022).

The problem started when Arif admitted that it was difficult to get access to oxygen for his wife.

On Saturday (14/5/2022), Arif, who was taking care of his wife alone, had asked the officers to replace the oxygen because it was running out. However, admitted Arif, the duty officer was less responsive.

“So it took a long time for the officers to handle it. Some of the officers slept when I asked for oxygen,” said Arif, Friday (20/5/2022).

Similar conditions occurred again on Tuesday (17/5/2022).

At that time, Arif’s wife was again in critical condition with the oxygen cylinder running low. At that time Arif looked after his parents.

The mother went to the nurse’s room to ask for oxygen replacement.

However, the patient’s family complaint again received the same treatment. Nurses are considered slow in handling patient complaints. Until finally Arif’s wife was declared dead.

“The nurse just said let (later). When the oxygen ran out, my wife was immediately critical,” said Arif.

“Just saying oh. When I checked my wife’s oxygen ran out and she couldn’t help it. So before she replaced her oxygen, she died,” he added.

Annoyed, Arif finally recorded the situation in the patient’s room. Arif also recorded this incident and had an argument that made the atmosphere in the treatment room boisterous.
