SARIKEI: The plight of three bedridden patients here has received the attention of Repok assemblyman Datuk Seri Huang Tiong Sii.
Huang donated a hospital bed to each of them. A team of Repok Service Centre officials represented Huang in delivering the beds to the recipients on Friday.
The recipients are Lau Pik Chai, 75, from Batu 5, Repok Road; Ting Ing Hock, 63, from Jalan Chung Nik; and Wong Ngiuk Yung, 85, from Jalan Hua Tai.
Eighty-seven beds have been given to bedridden patients in the Repok Constituency as of Feb 21.
Hospital beds allow users to alter and adjust the bed to better position their head and feet. These changes allow for movement as well as periodic change to the pressure points on the body, thereby improving the patient’s blood circulation while she/he is in bed.
